    Occasionally, in the middle of a thread discussing anything, someone just comes out with a statement so profound you really want to remember it and share it with others. But it gets lost. This thread is a place to record and share the most profound gems of wisdom.

    The very simple rules:
    - You cannot quote yourself or your spouse.
    - The quote must be short, a few sentences at most.
    - You must link to the thread the quote has come from, so people can read the context (and so you don't feel the need to copy a whole page of writing!). If you can, link directly to the comment itself, but that's not simple so it's not necessary.
    - No discussion on this thread. It's just a list of quotes. If you think something shouldn't be here, report the post using the "post report" button or by private message to a moderator.

    To format quotes and links manually, copy this code and modify:
    Code:
    [quote="Fred"]Fred's profound wisdom[/quote]
    [url=www.biblicalfamilies.org/thepostoffred]Quoted post[/url]
