Do you collect quotes?  I am pretty certain that even if you don’t claim to collect them, somewhere in your home you have some type of wall hanging, picture, or embroidered pillow with a witty or inspirational saying.  We all need the occasional reminder that lifts our mood or inspires us to “just keep swimming!”

My mom collects quotes and has been known to forward emails with great words of wisdom.  One of my favorites that she has shared is,

I take after my mom in more ways than one.  I’ve even recently scared myself in catching a glimpse of my reflection in the mirror and thinking I was looking at her.  Yikes!  I love my mom, but YIKES!

I digress.  Since college, I have had a black binder that I’ve collected some of my favorite quotes.  Some come from my mom’s emails, some from social media, movies, books, or from wisdom shared by people near and dear.
