    Hi Henrik,
    I am mad about quotes as you are. They are the distillation of the thoughts of the wisest who have lived before us and among us. Many times, when I am stumped with a problem, I try to look up quotes and usually I discover a new perspective that really helps me to “solve” my problem. How lucky that we are able to access others insights and brains. And I think it’s wonderful that you have edited and collected these for us, I have seen a few favourites among them and also found more new ones. Thanks!
