Quoflections™ are quotations with reflections, often on controversial subjects, which encourage empathy and insight. This holistic column includes essays on spirituality, ethics and current issues. While some injustices may briefly prompt an impassioned prophetic complaint, my primary style is a pastoral approach encouraging thoughtful responses. It is a labor of love.
Quofblogs, about half the length of Quoflections™, are similar in content and style. Also, you may want to enjoy the sidebar feature, “INSPIRING QUOTATIONS,” for a few minutes: One of 1200 wisdom quotations is randomly refreshed every 15 seconds.
Comments and newspaper editor inquiries for running the column are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. Editors interested in running the column can also contact me at (401) 735-1998.
