While at college, my daughter (Christin) began to keep a book of her favorite quotations, and over time it grew. It contains thoughts from the silly to the profound. I enjoyed them and have added some of my own. A few years ago I shared some of them online and several others said they looked forward to them. So, I’m reviving “Christin’s Book of Quotations.”
