Quotes of the Day for 20 June 2003 – Bubbles
I looked over today's birthdays and history, and nothing moved me. I looked back at the quotes for this day for the last three years, and see that I couldn't find any historical themes then, either. So I just let a word bubble up from nowhere and searched on it. Lo and behold, I had exactly six quotes on Bubbles.

Two things stand like stone,

Courage in your own.
