      @MuskieMcKay I love that! Thanks for sharing the link to your other quotes, on my way over to check them out now!
      (So livefyre is working better for you? ; ) )

        @careersherpa I had to switch browsers to leave a comment using livefyre, that is poor website design. There is no doubt in my mind that livefyre is inferior to Disqus.
        What was your favourite quotation you found? There is an RSS feed to get one per day. Numerous other websites do something similar but I try to be really selective on which quotations I include. I only have a couple hundred in the collection not thousands and thousands like some of the other sites. All high quality all the time…
