looking for "quick paste" software...

hi everybody,
it's my first post, so please be patient if i write stupid things...
i'm a newbie migrating from xp and i'm looking for a piece of software that may replace Fast Paste, a windows utility that stores snippets of text and paste them just by clicking on specific shortcuts.
i've tried some linux clipboard management utilities, but none of theme had this function...
thanks to anybody that can help me...
