At the suggestion of Richard Rabatin, I have begun with his help to collect and organize alphabetically a collection or ordering of various citations from various published essays and books over the years. Each listing gives a reference, the whole of which is found at the end of the quotation entry. These citations are usually relatively brief and cover a wide range of topics.
