Our Features are all about people in the wide world and what they think, when what they think might effect each of us.
Each week we look for quotes on Twitter and Facebook to highlight here. Sometimes we choose a subject, sometimes they are just general quotes. They give us a sense of the state of the world. Happy reading.
