Favorite Quotes

I’ve  been coming across a lot of thought provoking Quotes over the last few months.  With that in mind I figured I would create a page dedicated to these quotes for your enjoyment.  Maybe when I get a bit more time I’ll do some exploratory writing about the quotes or segment them a bit by author.  Have a look and let me know if you have any favorites or if you have some favorites that I should add to the list.
