I'm and avid collector of quotes. Especially now that I've found the best web 2.0 quote site around: www.quotiki.com. It even gives you a widget that can feed your own selected quotes. (see at the bottom of this post, after the polls et. al)
I think I like quotes so much because they also abide by the minimalism philosophy. A good one-sentence quote can contain as much (nay, more) wisdom than a 300 page tome. It's just distilled wisdom, the nugget less the ore.
PS: WBF - I'll most definitely be answering your excellent questions in the next few days.
