Snippy Snappy Quotes

Oct 31, 2020

People look/are smart if they can use the right quote at the right time. Its widely perceived thing. Not saying I rally with the idea. However, I had a thought; what if I could do the same? The problem is in the last 4 years; I managed to maybe put right quotes at 3 occasions. That's at least what I recall, feeling great at about quoting.

I also mentioned this funny idea to my good friend. We laughed. I thought a quote app that I categorize for specific occasions. Then I got more interested in the technology of building the SwiftUI app. I knew I wasn't in for the quote if I had gone that route. And so, after work, I thought why not just write about it. Maybe I get few comments and incorporate them here.

Please be aware this is not about short phrases like It is what it is, Do what you love. Neither it is about massively used phrases everyone says all the time like Do or die, dream big

Quotes I like to use sometime:
