Tuesday Thingers: LT’s quotation field

Have you ever added a quote to the quotation field in [Library Thing’s] common knowledge? What’s a quote you particularly like from a book, one that you know by heart?

Since I didn’t know what “common knowledge” was until seeing this, no. It may, though, come in as a handy resource.

Although I put quotes at the end of each post, I’m not a big one for memorizing them. Probably an issue of too few brain cells. That said, I have always remembered this quote from Hugh Prather’s Notes to Myself: “If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing then the desire is not to write.” Although I first read the book more than 30 years ago, that still is a perfect summary of my approach toward writing.

He who trains his tongue to quote the learned sages will be known far and wide as a smart ass.
