Quotations


These pretzels are making me thirsty.

— Cosmo Kramer

I collect quotes.  Then I lose the quotes.  Then I collect them again.  Then I lose…  It’s been happening like this since I was about 5 years old.  You would think computers would make it easier, but I treat my computers poorly and they strike back by crashing and corrupting or losing my files.

I found a random quotation plug-in for WordPress called Quotes Collection.  Look to the right and you’ll see it display a random quote from my current collection.  You can call a new one by clicking “next quote.”  I was surprised to find out I had 327 quotes that survived since my latest quotation loss.  It took me most of the day to enter them all!  The Plug-in is amazingly easy to figure out. 

It seems the majority of my quotations are about Liberty or Nature, but there are many different topics covered.     I am trying to figure out how to allow searches of the various tags or authors, in case anyone is looking for something specific.  {Edited: You can now search on tags, like Beauty, Peace, Love, Liberty, etc. and I’ll work on finishing those soon, as well as adding authors.  I’m afraid the plug-in does not allow for searching of the actual text of the quote though.}

Another day, more learned about WordPress!  Pretty cool!

    Thanks for using my plugin. And I am impressed by your collection of quotes… so many quotes about liberty and freedom :) . I am going to pick up some of those for my site.

      Thanks for stopping by, Srini! And thanks again for writing the plugin–I’m enjoying it alot! I wish I still had my collection of “quotations about quotations” I imagine you’d be able to make use of those for sure :-)
