I love words—everything about them. Their sounds, history, the way they change meaning over time, you name it. Out of that love grew my adoration for just the right words put together in just the right way, which led to collecting quotations.
I had over 13,000 quotes in my database here and lost them (probably in a server move). I’m trying not to think too much about that other than being happy that. I’ve got thousands more stored elsewhere, but it’s going to take a lot of work to get them back onto the site.
I’ve considered trying to develop my own quotations application to track my collection. It may be what finally drives me into programming. If anyone knows of a good product that already exists to do that, I’d be tickled to know about it. The ideal application would have a mobile app to go with it, so the user could look up or add quotations on the go.
