I'm the kind of person who skips to the conversation when reading a book.
“Suppose you were an idiot,
And elected –” (oh, how hideous!)
Redundant but a truth so well designed.
A quote will draw me in to read.
They make me laugh; they make me bleed.
Good quotes work well if they are well-designed.
“I always have a quotation…”
One to fit every occasion.
It helps me to preserve my pea-sized mind.
The real quotations with their authors:
“I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.” Bilbo Baggins in JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings
“Suppose you were idiot and suppose you were elected to Congress; but I repeat myself.” Mark Twain
“I always have a quotation for everything – it saves original thinking.” Dorothy Sayers
