As a young adult, I always loved finding quotes. I would write them in my journal, tape them on my calendar, and include them in affectionate notes. Ehem, YES this was before email or facebook or blogs in which case I would have 'posted' them online, on my wall, or 'in the cloud.'
And perhaps that is where quotes should rest: in the clouds. Ideas and thoughts that are best left unattached, floating meandering and otherwise roaming unobstructed in your mind.
With all that hubbub, no promise if these quotes will take the cake, so to speak. But I figure this is just the start of many quotes to come. We like to think about life---and making each day count.
"We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry." ~EB White
“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves as well. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen accidents, meetings and material assistance that no one could have dreamed would come their way. Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” ~Goethe, by attribution
