iGoogle – I love it!

I recently discovered the iGoogle feature from Google.  This Google product allows you to create a personalized page full of widgets that you select from a pretty large variety.  There are plenty of widgets that are helpful for writers such as a dictionary, thesaurus, and a widget that gives you a Word A Day from dictionary.com.  I have an assortment of things on my page right now including weather information, phases of the moon, puzzles, pictures from National Geographic, and quotations…I love quotations!  

I have three different quotation widgets on my page.  One is all about literary quotes, one is about love, and the other is inspirational.  I thought I would share a few of the recent ones that I have read courtesy of the iGoogle widgets with all of you.

Please leave any comments about the quotes or iGoogle.

  1. Yeah Google’s customized home page is great…Yahoo’s was good years ago, but it became too messy…Google offered a much cleaner interface.

    Dao’s quote is good, it relates the idea that natural chemistry between two people will show love at it’s simplest most natural form. But would it really be so sudden? Will one be able to find their soulmate (or something close to it), just like that? I hope it works like that someday, I know I for one would be happy.


  2. dr corner, I had a feeling that you would like the iGoogle!

    Yes, yes…I do think that finding love can work the way described in the quote and be quite sudden, but maybe it also depends on each individual’s state of mind, and experiences, and receptiveness, and…

  3. 😀 , Thanks. Gott’a love things Google. 😛

    😆 , Yeah quite a lot of factors can come into play. There’s also the love that builds over time, getting to know someone, building a relationship…then taking things to the next level. Dao would probably agree that either route would be great, since the outcome would be the same: happiness with another.

    Melissa, I’d be happy to hear your take on Dao’s quote, as well as what I said.
