We crossed continents, we made house ships, we bobbed around the world's busiest delivery lane in a pick-up truck.

How can one "write a quote"? definitely, via definition, a quote has to be extracted from a better physique of writing, for the aim of illustrating or helping some extent in an unrelated paintings. i will not "write a quote" from now on than i may "film an out-take".
