Quotes

I adore quotes. I always have so many half formulated thoughts in my head. I love it when I stumble across a quote that completes those thoughts. And, more importantly, there are so many people who are much wiser and more poetic than I am. It’s so much easier to let them do the talking for me ! :) Anyway, here are some of my favorites:
