Words of Wisdom

I have collected Words of Wisdom for years. From books, magazines, friends and now from the internet. I am going to try to break them down into subjects.This will take a while, so check back often. I use some on my crafts, others in notes to friends, and sometimes, when I have something on my mind, I'll read over these and find the one that fits what is happening in my life.If you have a favorite quote and don't see it here, please send it my way!
