For bash users who are used to ctrl+a and ctrl+e, it may be convenient to have the same shortcuts in vim:

" normal mode
nnoremap <c-a> ^
nnoremap <c-e> $
" visual mode
vnoremap <c-a> ^
vnoremap <c-e> $
" insert mode
inoremap <c-a> <esc>^i
inoremap <c-e> <esc>$a
" commandline mode
cnoremap <c-a> <c-b> " this is specially useful in tmux since <c-b> is the default tmux prefix/mod key, which requires users to type <c-b> twice to move the cursor to the beginning of the line in vim commandline mode
" cnoremap <c-e> <c-e> " this is not needed since <c-e> is the default vim keybinding for moving cursor to end of line in commandline mode
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Can you help create some code that will allow quotes to be stored in a folder for use in notes without the requirement of having them exist in the root directory? Thanks
