QFTQ, a writing odyssey, began in 2008 with medical essays punctuated with “spot-on sayings,” and it continued as an ongoing project of documenting original quotations while working, playing tennis, or talking with friends and family. Moments of inspiration often prompted a pause in mid-conversation to record ideas or quotes that came to mind before they were lost to the cosmos forever. Diligence and “pen and paper” ensured that many great and meaningful quotes were recorded. Writing is an exhaustive exercise that captures sometimes transient thoughts for the world to see, read, and interpret for the good of humanity. Time, space, and human interaction provided the moment, the setting, and the inspiration for more than 450 quotations.
