What I love about Quotes (Creating them not copying)

There is something about a well designed quote that I can’t begin to explain. THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE TO CREATE A QUOTE. Because, I could go on and on for pages explaining this or if I phrase my quotes in such a way that the words strategically selected and positioned can explain 20 pages of thoughts in less than a couple sentences. ………..A good quote to me has not only content, it also has interpretational depth with layers for those analytical people like myself to discover.

JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE- I HAVE VERY WEAK WRITING SKILLS, AND VERY TO NO EDUCATION IN ENGLISH REGARDLESS OF MY EXTENSIVE / EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION. SPELLING, GRAMMAR, PRONOUNS, ADJECTIVES ADVERBS, ECT……. I WOULDN’T PASS GRAMMAR SCHOOL LOL…… GOOD THINK MY FIELD WAS PSYCHOLOGY WHERE THEY WERE NOT VERY CONCERNED WITH WRITING ABILITY.

I DO BELIEVE THAT BEING OVER ANALYTICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL APPLICATION TO WORDS, TONE, STATEMENTS, ECT PLAYS IT PART IN MY STRUGGLE WHEN I WRITE. I COULD SAY SOMETHING OUT LOUD PERFECTLY, YET ONCE I PUT IT ON PAPER OR TEXT THAT IS WHEN MY STRUGGLE BEGINS. **KNOWING THAT THE READER IS OPEN TO INTERPRETATION BASED ON THE WORDS THEMSELVES DISASSOCIATED FROM ANY EMOTIONAL OR PERSONALITY THAT GIVES THEM MEANING. OTHERWISE THEY ARE JUST A COLLECTION OF LETTERS, WORDS, SENTENCES.

SO, AN EXAMPLE HOW I WOULD TRY TO QUOTE THE ABOVE

“A DICTIONARY CAN PROVIDE A DEFINITION TO A WORD, BUT, ONLY A PERSON IS ABLE TO GIVE A MEANING TO A WORD”
