Not My Own Words

I thought I’d lead you into the weekend with some great quotes by others. Have any favorites of your own to add?

“The only thing worse than an expert is someone who thinks he’s an expert.”–Aly. A. Colon (does that name sound suspicious to anyone else?)

“Look out how you use proud words. When you let proud words go, it is not easy to call them back.”–Carl Sandburg, Slabs of the Sunburnt West

“There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.” Han Suyin, A Many-Splendored Thing

  1. “Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.” Henry David Thoreau (doesn’t this remind you of the pleasure of Twitter?)

  2. Great quote Winslow. I wouldn’t have immediately thought of Twitter, but good point. Facebook too 🙂 Would Thoreau roll over in his grave, or would he have adopted it as readily as the next?
