    I got this Goodreading magazine out of the library yesterday and it mentioned a book called "Not Quite What I was Planning: Six-word Memoirs By Writers Famous and Obscure." I thought it is a fabulous idea and an interesting challenge for our fellow hubbers.

    Some excellent examples given are:
    "I always suffered fools fairly well." -- Richard Ford
    "Everyone who loved me is dead." -- Ellen Fanning
    "Fifteen years since last professional haircut." Dave Eggers
    "Revenge is living well without you." -- Joyce Carol Oates.

    Please limit two entries per person, so do give it some thought before you publish it here.

    Thanks for playing and for sharing! ^^

      I thought after a couple days we can all vote for our personal favorite. To keep it simple and manageable, each person only has ONE vote. And we do this by picking out the favorite memoir quote, click on that particular quote's "reply" button and reply with "(your name)'s vote".  Multiple votes from same person will be not be counted. Thanks xo
