If you’ve been keeping up here, I love quotes. This started off as a Top Ten Tuesday post for November 17th I think it was, but I didn’t get a chance to finish it. I couldn’t find ten quotes. I so hear are my seven favorite quotes or ones that spoke to me for some reason or another.

“Yeah, but do librarians hang out with mobsters? Because I’m pretty sure Ricardo owed money to the Mob.”
~ Cooper and Heather, The Bride Wore Size 12
“I’ll go get the horse and buggy,” you’ll say.
And I’ll say, “But I thought we were taking the hovercraft!”

The things that matter stay with you, seep into your skin. People get tattoos to have a permanent reminder of things they love or believe or fear, but though she’ll never regret the turtle, she has no need to ink her flesh again to remember her past.
She had not known the markings would be etched so deep.
