“The best way I can describe myself in high school was that I was like a social llama. Like, where does the llama go? A llama’s not a cow. It’s not a horse. It might hang out with the ducks once in a while, but it really has no place to belong. I was a social llama. But I didn’t walk around spitting on things.”

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
