The quote book

When I was in college a good friend of mine kept a quote book. In this book she would write down different quotes that would make her think. It has been 6 years since I have started my own quote book and it’s pages are filled with many ideas and thoughts that have and continue to challenge me. Below you will find just a small smattering of some of my favorites.
