I enjoy the daily selections on http://www.quotationspage.com/ and include them on my Google startup page. It often seems that the more brilliant quotations capture the essence of some planet or sign, so I’ve taken to saving them. (For more information about the authors and sources of the quotes, click on their names.) I created the cartoons here by tweaking some of the stranger drawings at Clipart.com and adding captions.
