Weekly Geeks 2009-09: A Quote a Day


One of my favorite Weekly Geeks last year was: A Quote a Day. This will have you pulling books off your shelves and Googling for your favorites. It also means a post a day for the next week - or as many as you can do.


You may want to come up with a theme, such as favorite passages from books, author quotes, political quotes, quotes about books or reading, humorous quotes, whatever. Or you may not want a theme at all; maybe you just want to gather up seven assorted quotes that appeal to you. You may want to start each of your posts of the week with a quote, or you may want to give quotes posts of their own in addition to your regular posts. It’s all up to you!
I originally thought I'd use garden quotes as my theme since it's time to start seriously thinking garden. But then I remembered that tomorrow is International Women's Day and March is Women's History Month (isn't it odd that we have to devote a month to it? Why can't it just be women's history every day?) So I'm scouting out my favorite quotes by and about women.


I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute.
