The New Quote Feature!

I love it when I read or hear someone say something funny or thoughtful, but I hate it when I have no one to share it with. For this reason I have added a Quote Pile to the sidebar, and will link it to this post where I will collect them all. I can’t think of a better quote to kick it off with than one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies. Enjoy!
