SA4QE 2020

It's nearly that time of year again, when Russell Hoban fans from around the globe share their favourite quotations from the great man's work in public places, on social media and on this website.

Which quotes will you use this year? Where will you be? 


In Adelaide, South Australia. Some good advice from Lorna Elswint the Tel Woman.

“O yes youwl want to think on that you dont want your mouf to walk you where your feet dont want to go.”

Today's the day! Here's my quote, chosen, as is my practice, at random. Not sure where it will go yet. I'll post back when I find out where it ends up.

"There are things in life that compel recognition, things that you know are for you and nobody else. You can't get around them; you have to go through them or be stopped by them."

From <em>My Tango with Barbara Strozzi


Well, of course, yesterday was the day. So I'm a day late. (You're a day late and a dollar short, my 4th grade teacher always used to say; she wasn't wrong.) But I posted my quote anyway on a light pole near a road sign that indicated you could go right or you could go left but you couldn't go straight. Happy Belated Birthday to Russ!
