Day of Quotes #1

I have a confession…I am a hoarder! I have a collection of quotes, poems, and inspirational stories everywhere I look. They are displayed throughout my home, on my classroom walls, in my home office files, and the focus of my social media sites. Something has to be done, without feeling like I have wasted valuable time cutting, saving, and storing these items of obsession. For sanity purposes, before I purge, I need to share. So, with that idea floating in my head, I thought, What better way to share them, then to have a ‘Day of Quotes’ blog post?  So, I’m pulling my first ten from the archives (old file folder labeled “Quotes”). Enjoy!
