I have decided to start a new segment where I post a few thought-provoking quotes from different topics and/or people each Wednesday. I think it will be a good creativity booster and encourage me to write more. I hope you enjoy, let me know what you think in the comments and feel free to suggest a subject.

– Louis Sachar (Sideways Stories from Wayside School)
