Twitter Updates – March 2009 (Great Quotes)

Here are a few selected Twitter updates I posted through March 2009. March was a month of quotes and I found a lot of appealing and interesting quotes from people whom I follow on Twitter. While I love all of them, I specially like the ones marked in bold.

For those new toTwitter, RT stands for Retweet which simply means re-posting the tweets posted by others.
