What is “Just-A-Quote”?

If you’re wondering why I’ve been posting a “Just-A-Quote” post every week for the past few weeks, here’s my explanation: 

  1. It’s a simple way of staying connected with the WordPress community while having a busy offline life.
  2. I like the idea of sharing a quote once a week that helped me or meant something to me that week.  And I think these quotes may help or mean something to someone else.  
  3. And I’m hoping I can increase the reader’s awareness of the person quoted or something within the quote by providing a single link within that week’s post.  For example, a simple link to Chuck Yeager‘s Wikipedia page when I quote Yeager.  I’ll try to get more creative as I go on.

I hope you enjoy the quotes and maybe learn something in the process.

“You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can’t, you do the next best thing. You back up, but you don’t give up.”

Chuck Yeager 

Just-A-Quote #2

“Courage is found in unlikely places.” 

      –J.R.R. Tolkien‘s The Return of the King
