Quotes from my Journal, Part Two   1 comment

Webbie TopBack in November, I made a post of quotes that had been accumulating in my journal. I was about two-thirds of the way through at the time. This week, I wrote in the last page. So, I thought I would post what was collected since then. Surprisingly, many of them are from people I know. On the other hand, there were fewer–not surprising, given the shorter window (two years versus eight months).
