The above is one of my favorite quotes from that sage writer, Anonymous, a.k.a. Author Unknown. I love books of quotations and proverbs. I often flip through them looking for just the right thought. I figure why bother to come up with something original when someone has already expressed the thought better! Bartlett's is known as a main source for quotes, and with the internet, the perfect one is only a click away!
