Incredible Quotes

Work has been busy, so I find myself working on an unscheduled Top Ten Tuesday post because how can I let the opportunity to wallow in quotes go by? Brace yourself, you’re getting a fresh post!

And this is where I’m going to leave you. I don’t think I’ve ever done fewer than ten for a TTT, but I’ll leave you with some of my other quote-sy posts, here, here, and here. Given that I post about quotes so often, is it any wonder I struggle to find more under pressure? 😉

  2. Oh geez, Laini Taylor took the words right out of my head! I haven’t read the Smoke and Bone trilogy series but sometimes I do wonder what life would be like if I was a Samurai. Or a Ninja. Or a Zombie. Haha.

    Cheers,
    Joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts.
