It seems to me that many of us (myself included) are using "favorite quote"
more or less as "identifying moment for favorite story."
"Shopping" means very little in isolation; it's only when you recall
Cordelia opening the bag and what rolls out that the story becomes
What quote best stands on its own? What could you best use as a bumper
sticker or T-shirt slogan (or submit to _Bartlett's_, if it came to that)?
I'd probably have to go with "All true wealth is biological."
In the theater of memory every play is an improv
Stored bits remade from piles of scattered stuff --
Yet the taste of the first kiss remains so real.
