What’s the difference between STATUS QUOtes and Q.U.O.T.E. (Quotes Up On The Edge)

If you happen to follow STATUS QUOtes on a regular basis, you might have noticed that controversial topics are largely avoided.

As a quotation enthusiast, I felt there was a need for a space with quotes that would resonate with readers and which, by the nature of the quote or the person quoted, might cut a bit closer to the bone than those on the STATUS QUOte pages.

That’s where Q.U.O.T.E.Quotes Up On The Edge comes in. These pages, unlike STATUS QUOtes, will not be published on a daily or regular basis. When there has been an ample number of witticisms, timely remarks, irreverent humor, etc. to gather an interesting compilation, they will appear on JBRish.com

If this is your “cup of tea,” check back often! Please do not comment about the topics and/or opinions; they are not necessarily those of JBRish. If you have something to say that would enlighten viewers regarding the meaning of the quotation or quip, then please feel free to chime in.
