All About Teamwork -- April 18, 2006
Behind every able man, there are always other able men. -- Chinese Proverb
Benjamin Franklin said, "Nothing gives an author so much pleasure as to find his works respectfully quoted by other learned authors." If you guessed old Ben said that in his almanac you'd be right. He's tickled pink and pleased as punch because he is one of the most oft-quoted guys out there. Sorry. This site's all about quotes, not clichés.
Used judiciously, quotations can enliven our writing. Quotations package profound ideas in a few words. I said that, not Benjamin. But Winston Churchill said, "The quotations when engraved upon the memory give good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more." That's good too.
