Some people collect stamps; some people collect coins. I collect quotes. This collection have the power to transform my day, to lift me up, to inspire me to action, to teach me new ideas, to make me smile or laugh out loud. These quotes change something about me, no matter how many times I read them.
Unlike the stamp collector or coin enthusiast, I don’t have to lock away my collection for safe-keeping. In fact, it’s more valuable if I share it! So today, I thought I’d share my current “Top Ten” favorite quotes, from a variety of sources. If you asked me tomorrow, some would stay, others would be replaced, but they’re all valuable.
