Whether on Twitter, Facebook or here on my site, occasionally I write things that others seem to connect to/identify with/enjoy. Some folks have been so gracious as to include my quotes alongside some of the great thinkers throughout history on their own sites. An odd juxtaposition perhaps, but okay with me.

So I figured I’d try to gather up some of these quotes here, in case you find them worthy of your attention. And if you’re so compelled, please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
