What is it about a good, well put quote that just makes my soul throb? I don’t know. A book could woo me with a string of witty words. Quotes resonate. Sometimes they inspire, sometimes they validate, sometimes they’re just plain hilarious. Everyone has they’re go-to favorites, I just happen to have a looong list of favorites. Speaking of lists (I love lists, I get it from my sister), I like to have things organized. So I gathered together all of my favorite quotes and categorized them into a convenient compilation of life changing quote awesomeness. If you want to change your life, you have to change what goes into your brain. Ready? K, cool.
