Favorite Quote:
Words are free, Meanings are deep, Quotes are like a sea, I make them in my sleep.
  Quotes are for each day, Notes are for tomorrow, Words are good to say, But, quotes can bring you sorrow.  Hold not to past words, Quotes are but a moment of glory, Seek no future words, Quotes can limit your story.
Quotes are where you begin, Lacking creative knowledge, Quotes are not from within, That is why we go to college.   Ask not what quote I hold, But what quote I will create, Seek not the words I sold, But the words I will create.
