Thanks everyone for throwing Neil's brilliant words my way. And super thanks to the Neilster himself for retweeting me!
I have chosen a quote recommended by violinen on twitter. It's from Coraline. And I like it. 'Be wise. Be brave. Be tricky.'
Since there are a kazillion Neilisms, I have created a 'custom' option on my Etsy store for a Neil Sampler. I can stitch a quote, or a personal message, like, 'Dear Cotton Floozy, I worship you with my soulful gaze -- Neil.'
You get the idea.
