Setting a Goal for July: Participation Welcomed!

I contemplated waiting until July 1 to announce this goal I have for myself (and a goal I hope readers will consider assuming as well!), but I decided a few dozen hours' preparation might be useful.

I am deeming this July Literary Quote Month. The goal of the month-long celebration is to incorporate at least one literary quotation into ordinary conversation* each day in July. I have already talked to a well-read friend about possibilities for her own inaugural quote, and I can't wait to hear if she used it and how it went.

I'll try to post each of the quotes I use here throughout the month, and I encourage you to a) take on this quotation challenge for yourself and b) report back in the comments!

*The use of air quotation marks is discouraged. People tend to get annoyed by them. Don't say I didn't warn you.
