Years ago I began collecting quotes. Every time I would happen upon something that made me say “Yes!” I would stop and write it down. Now I have an entire library of quotes at my disposal where I can always find a word to challenge, comfort, or inspire–my own personal collection of voices from the past. The practice has been so beneficial to me that I definitely recommend you do it for yourself.
In the meantime, though, here are some selections from my collection for your encouragement. I will update this list periodically, so be sure to check back from time to time. Follow the links and enjoy!
