Great thread - I love finding new quotes to use.

— Brian Andreas (Story People)

and a couple more:

"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."

This is an AWESOME thread! I have files and files of quotes I love. I even did a set of word art on quotes for a site I CT for. I'll rummage and whittle down and come back to post.
Love this idea. I already got some inspiration!


What a great thread! One of my favorite quotes is "worrying is like praying for what you don't want" but I can't remember the name of the lady that said it, only that she was a cancer survivor.
