Quote Quest

A weekly meme hosted by Little Switch Bitch, inspired by a quote.

Knowledge is sexy because it empowers us

Willingness to learn is a choice

LSB’s quote for this week, “Give me words that make my mind curl before my toes.”— Rachel Wolchin is interesting. However, I’d like to extend the realm of knowledge to beyond ‘just words.’ I find knowledgeable people interesting. If I’m interested in someone, then it’s more likely I will find …

The quote that LSB has chosen for week 40 of her #QuoteQuest meme is thought-provoking. “The day I changed was the day I quit trying to fit into a world that never really fit me” – JM Storm. I feel like I’ve always been different. Perhaps less inclined to bother …
