Thoughts, Musings, & Quotes (2018)
When I first started posting thoughts here, my intention was to think of clever tidbits of my own to share. But I quickly discovered that other people have more wisdom than I do. Consequently, many of these quotes are from other people.

Dates are the post date and not the date of the quote itself.
