One of workmates is leaving after 3 years. She and I went to Library School together, many, many years ago. She is a very social person and always teasing us, but I will miss her. Here is a quote I found from a great web site that has them by authors, subject, motivation and quotes of the day. Anyway here is the quote for my friend: "There isn’t much better in this life than finding a way to spend a few hours in conversation with people you respect and love. You have to carve this time out of your life because you aren’t really living without it. " Author is: Real Live Preacher, RealLivePreacher.com Weblog, August 27, 2003 . When you have a mental blank, thank goodness there are great quotes on the web.
