I am obsessed with quotes. I even have a little leather bound note book that I write all my favorite quotes in. I like quotes because they make me think, or make me want to change for the better. I think I love them so much because word are powerful. Words stay with you long after they are said.
So, with that in mind, I would like to share a few of my most favorite quotes and why I like them.
