Human fascination with quotes exemplifies our love of language. In fact, a quote is really just a delicious sentence. Well, I’m hungry.

In this first installment, here’s a random list of quotables from famous peeps and commoners alike dealing with writing, motivation, children, or albino zebras confused with horses. Please note, I claim no accuracy and attribute full credit to the original authors.
