Musings A to Z Challenge: Q

Challenge:  Write a short paragraph (100 words or less) daily on a topic beginning with the sequential letter of the alphabet.


I collect quotes the way some people collect stamps; any time I come across a good one, I add it to my collection.  I wish I had photographic memory so that I could pull them out at the drop of a hat, but perhaps such a gift would rather be a curse than a blessing in this age of information-overload.  The exact quote in the right moment can sum up an hour’s lecture into one pithy point; they say brevity is the spice of life, so if you have something to say, make every word count!

  1. Lovely. 🙂 I collect quotes too, have since forever. “Patch grief with proverbs”, I used to call it. Except there was no grief, only Weltschmerz. 😀

  2. I think melancholics are in too much danger of wilting under Weltschmerz; I try not to take it on too often because of it – and a good quote that makes me laugh, or at least smile, and think of things from a different perspective helps too. 🙂
