Q is for...

Quotes. Not a stock quote or a quote on a new car. Although, I would love to get a good, affordable quote on a red Mini Cooper Countryman with racing stripes and Union Jacks painted on the mirrors. Baby Jake and I would look SUPER cool drivin' down the highway in one of those babies, lemme tell ya.

But, no. Today, I'm talking about quotes of wisdom. Cool stuff said by cool people. Call 'em what you want. I'm a quotes person. Write 'em down on the oddest places sometimes--napkins, gum wrappers, the inside of my checkbook, palm of my hand. At the day job, I'm the one who writes a quote on the breakroom dry-erase board every Friday.

Yep, that's me. Quote Girl.

So, for the "Q" challenge, I figured I'd share a few of my favorite quotes with you.

"Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look there." - Marcus Aurelius

"Where liberty dwells, there is my country." - Benjamin Franklin

"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear." - Mark Twain

"'Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." - Sir Winston Churchill

What's one of your favorite quotes?

I used to have quotes everywhere. Sometimes, I post things on FB. Not thinking of anything at the moment, though. Then, again, I am trying to get my kids finished with dinner, so I'm a little brain dead.
