The Hummingbird Weekly Quote. 2019 Edition.
Editor’s Note: Hummingbird is pleased to continue our collection of eminently quotable people and their thoughts, curated by Lynda Bernard. Each week a new one will be added; there will be no commentary with it, rather the quote will stand alone as food for thought. Some will be famous, others more obscure. They might be ripped out of today’s headlines, or possibly sage words from writers we have known over time. Regardless, our purpose is to engage and entertain you--to present something you might agree or disagree with; maybe laugh (or cry) about.
