Signatures

I saw this on anothers genealogy blog and I really liked the idea of a page of signatures. It always gave me a thrill to see the handwriting/signature of a family member that came before me. It helps to view them in my mind I guess, makes them more real. Would their signature show them to be bold, precise, neat, measured, eloquent, educated or would it indicate nothing at all?
