The object of this whimsical pursuit is too keep the conversation going.

The catch is to respond appropriately to the previous person's post with a book quote, movie quote or song lyric.

The rule is to give credit to the source of the quote or lyric.

ex. Previous post: Can we still be friends? (Todd Rundgren/ lyric)
My response: Call me Ishmael. (Moby Dick)

If this works well, this conversation will take on many spins. Have fun!!

So I'll start obviously....

I won't ever leave you, even though you're always leaving me. (The Time Traveler's Wife)

*Morris Albert was listed as the composer-lyricist of "Feelings" when he recorded it in 1974, but in 1988 he lost a plagiarism suit to French composer Louis Gasté, who proved in court that Albert had stolen the music from Gasté's "Pour Toi." Albert continues to get lyrics credit for "Feelings," which turned him into a one-hit wonder.
