Over the years, I’ve occasionally found that perfect combination of words that concisely, eloquently and memorably expresses whatI’m thinking. Some people liked some of them, so I decided to start actually collecting them and laying claim to them. Please enjoy and share! I’ve included my Twitter handle to make it easy to copy/paste them.
