Quotes of 2011

I am sad. The email system at my office failed and I lost most of the quotes for 2011.

I have been collecting quotes from the books and blogs I have read this year. Just like the previous year, at the beginning of this month, I had close to 100+ quotes but all are lost now.

I managed to find these few quotes that were stored in some other mail.
