Description:
a curated collection of quotes from books we're currently reading
Here's the idea. This may be a collection of quotes, but it is emphatically not a place to deposit all of one's favorite quotes, culled from websites and hallmark cards. We're not looking for platitudes and epigrams.

In the tradition of Michel de Montaigne and other creative readers, it is a place to put the pieces of what we are reading that spur us to more fecund thought. We can have a record of what we're reading and what we're thinking about. We can cross-pollinate.

Context is good, and if you want to share what makes this quote particularly fertile for you, please do. Do you agree with it?

(let's use <blockquote> to set the quote off.)
