Here is a link to quotes from every U.S. President:
Happy President’s Day! If you have the day off, enjoy it while the rest of the working world wishes they were you.
If you are on Twitter and love quotations, you should make oshoalltweet your friend. Every day, they tweet one line from a good book with a link to the book on Amazon.
If you’re not on Twitter, you can still read that website every day. I’m so excited to see what turns up in my Twitter list!
Creativity is…seeing something that doesn’t exist already. You need to find out how you can bring it into being and that way be a playmate with God.
Michele Shea is right. Creating something is a little like being God. You get to make something that did not exist before you put your hands to it. Whether it’s writing a story that has never been told before or creating an alternative to what is provided me, being creative has a sort of power to it that can’t be replicated anyway else.
Of course, that’s only if it works. For every finished creation, I have tons of aborted attempts that are boring, awkward or just plain ugly.
If you have been feeling down lately, try creating something new. It doesn’t matter what it is. Give yourself an hour or two every day to just make something… anything new. It’s like free Prozac, I promise.

If the The Quotations Page isn’t enough to fulfill your quotations fix, let me introduce you to QuotesBlog:
Collated by Daniel Johnson, Jr., it appears to be a unique collections of quotations. He doesn’t have a searchable database, but he does update fairly regularly. It’s obvious that Daniel has done his own work and achieved an enjoyable and different website to enjoy quotations.
If you are using Twitter, you can make QuotesBlog your friend:
You will receive quotations in your Twitter feed. Mike has been working on that for The Quotations Page, but QuotesBlog beat us to the punch. We think that’s awesome. The more interesting quotations that are out there, the better!
