My school does this thing where every senior puts a quote in the yearbook and I'm trying to decide what to use. If anyone has suggestions, that'd be great. Self-quotes, something a guy on the bus said, random, stupid, deep, author quotes, book quotes, Bible quotes, anything without swearing.
If it means something to you, please put it down, even if someone else already posted it.
I'd prefer to use a quote from a less used source, like, everyone uses Ghandi or Beatles quotes that have been used a million times, so make it as obscure as you want. (If you want to add one from a popular source please add it anyway)
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
