“Only as far as the masters of the world have called in nature to their aid, can they reach the height of magnificence. This is the meaning of their hanging-gardens, villas, garden-houses, islands, parks, and preserves.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
I believe that most people have quotes they use time and time again. Do you have such?
The awesome and terrible thing about using quotes is that they are verbal shortcuts. Therein lies the rub. The awesome thing is that a quote will quickly convey myriad meanings fast. The terrible thing about quotes is that they can become rather annoying especially when someone talks in quotes or uses the same ones all the time.
I like to use quotes some times. I want to share with you the ones I like the most because they are expressive.
