Quotations

Hi Safarians! Just thought I'd post all my collected quotations from the speakers before our Stanford Mag stuff is due. I plan, at some point, to combine my list with Shruti and Janelle's, eliminate the overlapping ones, and get them up on our Google site. I made the funnier ones green. Enjoy...
