We always seem to overlook quotes, even though they’re all over the place. A quote is something someone says that stands out, usually a famous person. But have you ever asked why they were saying it?

I don’t even know what a Thanksgiving is, but it sounds like pure evil. Last time my family went to a place called huh-why-ee...
