DailyQuotes 1/3

Greetings again! It's now time to initiate the first installment of our DailyQuotes list™ for 2013! As we've all become aware, this list is updated regularly (I'd like to say daily), and will include lines that might or might not inspire bursts of giggles and/or deep thinking within the next 4 months or so. A link to the DQ list will stay put on the comm sidebar.

The Dailyquote list for January-April begins here:
