Ahem. Okay. Thanks for indulging me. Back to our regularly scheduled post.

We all have quotes that pop into our heads from time to time. Some are more famous than others. A few might double as a personal credo. Others may only fit a specific situation. More than one of mine is silly, but there are a couple that always make me stop and think.

Today I want to share a few of my favorite quotes, and maybe you can share some of yours. Who knows? You may be hoarding the gem I’ve been looking for my whole life.
