Saint of the Day: Sts Cornelius and Cyprian


Simcha Fisher - published on 01/16/15

Here’s a kind of odd bleg.  A few years ago, someone at a greeting card company contacted me, to get permission to quote something I said in a post. I signed the contract, thinking nothing would come of it; but in fact, it’s been a pretty brisk seller. Here’s the card, also available as a magnet (and mug and so on):

go forth quotable

I thought of it as a graduation card, but apparently it sells well around mother’s day.

Since this year’s royalty check came within 24 hours of my husband’s car unexpectedly springing a leak and some especially sad news from the bank, I says to myself, “I wonder if they want any more quotes from me?” Turns out they do, hooray!

So I’ll be going through my archives and looking for anything that seems pithy and encouraging, or uplifting, or inspirational, so I can pitch it to them. I thought it couldn’t hurt to ask if you have any ideas. I realize this makes me sound like I think people are just going around quoting me all the time, but I can live with that! You never know what might stick in a person’s head. Thanks.
