A Few of My Favorite Quotes

I love quotes that inspire me or make me laugh.  My daughter keeps a quotation journal with a list of all of her favorite quotes and adds to it whenever she finds a new one.  I think that is a beautiful idea and it is one I keep meaning to adopt.

So many awesome quotes are too long for Twitter!  I have attempted to make some of my very favorite quotes “tweetable” by truncating them a little, but I am also including the full quote here so that you can enjoy its full impact and maybe start your own quotation journal.

A quotation journal can be any journal that inspires you and in which you enjoy writing your quotes.  I have linked to a few on Amazon and, as a disclaimer, they are my affiliate links, so if you decide to make a purchase, I will get a small commission, but there is no additional cost to you.

Now, on to the quotes!

  3. I love quotes. I have them all on my walls. Sometimes I use it as affirmations.

    Somehow, just I few days ago, I learn about neuro programming. And the way we say affirmation are not as effective as we think.

    The best way is to turn the quotes or affirmations. Rather than saying, I am successful, ask yourself. Why I think I am successful. Its game changing.

    Anyway, I love that most of the quotes you share here. My favorite one is
