I love 'em all, "B."  Several of these quotes are quotes I printed up at work, with photos or photos of paintings of the authors, framed, and put on the walls of our restaurant.

 

People love 'em.  They love 'em so much, we now sell them.  Sans frames. 

 

Thanks for all of them, "B."  A grand reminder.

 

Pat
