I love a good quote, an inspiring passage to make you smile, get you off your a**, keep you motivated, show you the way, help you grow and understand, or just to make you think. I have them all over my house. They're written in journals, taped onto the walls, everywhere I think I may just need to see them. So here is a small collection of my favorites, and I will add more when I find them, or need them. (I'm not certain of where some of these quotes come from, sorry about that)

Napolean Hill
