Gift of silence

“You have a grand gift of silence, Watson,” said he,
“It makes you quite invaluable as a companion.”

~ Arthur C. Doyle, Sherlock Holmes, in The Man with the Twisted Lip

Would you like a daily quote like this one from my Little Box of Quotes ?

A long long time ago I began collecting inspirational quotes and aphorisms. I kept them on the first version of my web site, where they were displayed randomly. But as time went on, I realized I wanted them where I would see them. Eventually I copied the fledgeling collection onto 3×5 cards and put them in a small box. As I find new ones, I add cards. Today, there are more than 1,000 quotes and the collection continues to grow.
