While using text edit my screen froze, now I have the spinning beach ball, or spinning lollipop, but I cannot close the text edit screen.  I was transferring data from a web sit when this occurred perhaps too much data???  made this happen not sure but I resorted to using Pages which I am not familiar with at all. Any instructions and explanation would be appreciated. Thank you.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
