And you can quote me on this…

The youngest-of-five, loves-the-spotlight, attention-whore in me loves when people quote me.  They’ll remember some dumb little saying I made up, or goofy phrase I turned and repeat it back to me some time later and it’s the best kind of compliment I can imagine… I guess when you run your mouth as much as I do, you’re bound to say something funny, smart, maybe even occasionally wise.

Anyway, I was philosophizing today on my walk home in class and thought came up with a self-quote. Here it is. It’s inspired by Graham Greene’s novel The Quiet American Read it. Think about it. Here it is.

“Ignorance is choice. Innocence is bliss.” – Charlie Westerman
