q is for quotation

A quotation, like a pun, should come unsought, and then be welcomed only for some propriety of felicity justifying the intrusion.

Robert Chapman (1920-2002)lexicographer & editor

a quick head's up about one of the quirkiest blogs and books I've heard of -the former is called the "blog" of "unnecessary" quotation marks - is there any question about what the book is titled? I'm number 6 in the queue at cpl for the book.

couldn't think of a song about quotations or quotation marks, instead how about the 1970 classic question by moody blues from their album a question of balance

Great words for your "Q" :)

I'm quite certain I learned to read from that exact book!

Hmmmmm... Two, two, two words in one! Heh, heh! I can imagine trying to find a song about quotations would be frustrating. You did well with this one!
