Default Text Align — Left Align

This is a para­graph. It is left aligned. Because of this, it is a bit more lib­eral in it’s views. It’s favorite color is green. Left align tends to be more eco-friendly, but it pro­vides no con­crete evi­dence that it really is. Even though it likes share the wealth evenly, it leaves the equal dis­tri­b­u­tion up to jus­ti­fied align­ment.

Center Align

This is a para­graph. It is center aligned. Center is, but nature, a fence sitter. A flip flopper. It has a dif­fi­cult time making up its mind. It wants to pick a side. Really, it does. It has the best inten­tions, but it tends to com­pli­cate mat­ters more than help. The best you can do is try to win it over and hope for the best. I hear center align does take bribes.

Right Align

This is a para­graph. It is right aligned. It is a bit more con­ser­v­a­tive in it’s views. It’s prefers to not be told what to do or how to do it. Right align totally owns a slew of guns and loves to head to the range for some prac­tice. Which is cool and all. I mean, it’s a pretty good shot from at least four or five foot­ball fields away. Dead on. So boss.

Justify Align

This is a para­graph. It is jus­tify aligned. It gets really mad when people asso­ciate it with Justin Timberlake. Typically, jus­ti­fied is pretty straight laced. It likes every­thing to be in it’s place and not all cat­ty­wampus like the rest of the aligns. I am not saying that makes it better than the rest of the aligns, but it does tend to put off more of an elitist atti­tude.

Blockquotes

Single line block­quote:

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Multi line block­quote with a cite ref­er­ence:

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hun­dred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick care­fully. I’m actu­ally as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
Steve Jobs — Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference, 1997
