Sometimes, one finds interesting things even when working a demanding job. In my case, I found some of the world's most beautiful quotes in one or two books at the office. So, in the middle of the summer-rush, while working as a Contract Processing Agent, I took a few minutes to read and write down the sayings that appealed to me. Now I do not remember the name of those books/ booklets, but if interested, you can try googling them.

Here they are. Enjoy!

@Miscellaneous: Si eu am aceleasi "tresariri" cand vine vorba despre citate. Pentru ele am un carnetel special. De asemenea, intr-o agenda trec informatiile pe care le consider interesante, inedite. Putin cam "old-school", dar imi place sa documentez lucrurile si "de mana", nu numai cu ajutorul computerului.
