Welcome! My name is Terri, from Arizona. I’ve had my nose in books since 1976 and have been collecting quotations since 1986. I especially love old books, so you will find many literary quotes here from the Romantic, Victorian, and Transcendental writings of the 19th century. But there are plenty of modern quotes too, from current authors to television shows to internet memes, and sometimes I even quote my friends, my family, and myself. There is a lot of unique content; most of the quotations and categories you won’t find anywhere else. These quotes reflect my passions — to laugh, think, feel soulful, learn, and to be inspired by nature. Happy browsing to you, from this happy bookworm!  Terri
