Every one of us is a quotesmith. We craft and share short sentences that draw from our everyday experiences, and our family and friends will repeat and pass them forward. We also repeat and hand down quotes from family members and friends.
I’m working on a project to capture the quotes of the everyday person and would like to invite you to share the catchwords, watchwords, war words, winged words, maxims, mottos, sayings and quips that are original to you, your family, your four-year-old, your teen.
Examples from my own life include:
“Nice people don’t eat breakfast.”—Marcie M Jensen (my mother, who is not fond of mornings, to me when she wanted to push breakfast into brunch)
“You can get used to hanging if you hang long enough.”—Nana
“Death really sucks.”—Cole
Now it’s your turn to share.
