A Handful of Quotes to Carry Around in Your Back Pocket This Week

Your never know when you'll need a good quote. I used to have a notebook into which I scribbled thought food and encouragement. Nowadays we look to Google, for encouragement, wisdom, answers to thorny questions. Do you keep a notebook of quotes, or files on your laptop? I have quite a few about writing and about books, and a file I keep for inspiration.

Often when I scroll through a list of inspirational quotes I find at least a few that I really connect with or that speak to me. It's especially fun when you find new ones that you'd never encountered before. A few of these may possibly be familiar, but many are new to me. The last, by Dr. Seuss, is today's favorite for me.
