Quotables

 einstein quote

I’m enjoying this new site, Quotables, by the brilliant and award-winning Adam Gee at Channel 4, and the clever folks at Mint DigitalArts Council England have supported their mission to enable people to share their favourite quotations online.

In the words of Sir Winston Churchill;

“It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read a book of quotations.”

Based on that observation, I’m confident that he would have been a fan of Quotables.  I for one will be checking in regularly for the latest pearls of wisdom.  It’s a good place to share the odd inspiring lines as you stumble across them. 

Here then, is something I read a couple of days ago, by Henry David Thoreau, writing in Walden;

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

I hope you’ll join me on Quotables and I look forward to hearing your favourites!
