Quotes! Quotes! Quotes! The cliff notes of life.

This week I chose quotes that focus on life changes. Are you about to send your child off to college or the military? Did you experience the death of a family member or friend? Has life recently thrown you a curveball? Whatever you may have experienced, I hope that you find some words of wisdom to help you along the way.
