A little preface to my new Quotes category. These are generally going to be little phrases I think of as events occur and things are said to me and around me. They are generally inspired by those things, and I may add a history for them. If I do not, it is likely to protect the identity of those in the history.
Of course, I may add a quote or two by an important person that is not in the mainstream. Here's an example:
"Speech is like a medicine, a small dose of which cures but an excess of which kills." -Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib
