Change Your Signature to a New Quote

I love to use quotes on my signature in my emails. When I directed a human resources department with over 1,000 employees in eight states, I had to be careful which quotes I used.

“Stupid people should not breed” was not permitted, but at least I knew enough to ask first!

Some quotes are perfect and offend no one, others, like these below are worth storing in you memory banks for their perfect use! Enjoy!
