Quotes of the Day for 5 December 2003 – Forget

Yesterday morning I got up and couldn't remember what quotes I had sent out the night before. I soon found that I had forgotten to send any. Sometimes I'm stumped for a theme, sometimes I'm simply too busy with other things to include the pleasant challenge of assembling your daily quotes before I fall into bed. I don't think I've ever before simply forgotten.
