    So many people loved John Wayne. I'm with you, I never did like him.

    I'm not going to give a long list of quotes here, but my favorite quote is in my signature block.

    I have a habit of quoting from books when writing my letters. Firstly you must know that I write every single day, and my letters are between 2200 and 4500 words long. I use literature to add substance to what I write, often comparing something which was written in 44 BCE or 1872 CE with how things are today. Quoting a work from 2500 years ago and showing how relevant it is still can be interesting and above all enlightening. And the thoughts of someone else, coupled with your own, can often bring new ideas into play, and enhance your writing by expanding the subject matter, getting a writer to think even further outside of their normal experience - an extended 'outside the box' if you like.

    Oh, how the world has changed since I was twenty! But in one aspect I have not changed at all since I was twenty: I'm still looking forward, searching for the next adventure; seeking new inspiration and excitement. So, in that respect, I disagree with the quote as far as I am concerned. For others, people that I know personally, yes, it fits. Sadly.
