Day 24 in "30 Days of Blogging"

Day 24: your favourite quote and why

Favourite? It always seems to be "favourite" with this blogging list doesn't it? Such pressure all the time! Let's go with: "quotes I like". Yeah, I can deal with that. How about "top five quotes I like" - even better.

“All experience is an arch where through gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades, forever and ever as I move”

– Alfred Lord Tennyson “Ulysses”

“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream”

-Vincent Van Gogh

"Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness"

- Dag Hammarskjold

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours"

- Alan Bennett from "The History Boys"

- Oscar Wilde
