Life is all about choices. When we stop having a choice, we are dead. Or, are we?
Election time is here and my fellow Americans and myself are faced with the choice of picking one of two candidates running for the highest office in our land--President of the United States of America--and voting for one of them in less than 28 days.
The candidates, in alphabetical order, are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Last night I got to see the two candidates meetup at the second Presidential Debate, held at Longwood University, Farmville, VA. Instead of editorializing, commenting or taking part in the national brew-ha-ha and media frenzy, this Independent voter turns to favorite quotations that cross my mind as I struggle with my decision.
Quotations are my tonic and what I turn to whenever I am troubled, happy, sad, mournful, miserable, gleeful, sick sicker sickest, alone, lonesome, lonely, or jubilant at a new tomorrow and the prospect of beginning a brand new day.
I hope you enjoy reading these quotations as much as I enjoyed collecting them.
See you in print,
