The Quotes of Quoting

I have this notebook where I write down things I like in books or movies. I think I have probably half of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium transcribed in that thing. I thought I could find ten tidbits worth sharing, and here they are! :)

“A good leader is someone who knows what he’s bad at, and hires someone who’s good at it to take care of it for him.”

Check it out, comments and stuff. I love to hear from readers, and I always respond to commenters! Here's the fun part—if you leave a link to your blog I'll show up and comment back. I have just one rule down here: Don't Be a Problem. This spans the entire umbrella of rudeness and crudeness, so I reiterate: Don't Be a Problem. Thanks for stopping by!
