By now you must know that I read lots of popular culture, not just business stuff. I read romance novels and science fiction fantasy and mystery/detective/police type fiction.

And I collect quotes from lots of different sources. I’ve collected quotes since I was in high school. I used to type them into a 3-ring black binder. Now I write them on bits of paper and post them into the revolving quotations on this website.

So right now I’m reading the second volume of a sci fi fantasy series by Patrick Rothfuss. The series is called The Kingkiller Chronicle. The first volume (Day One) is called The Name of the Wind. The second volume (Day Two) is called The Wise Man’s Fear. I don’t know how many volumes Mr. Rothfuss plans.

But hear these lovely words: “It might not be true, but that doesn’t mean it’s nonsense.” And, “When someone tells you a piece of their life, they’re giving you a gift, not granting you your due.”
