In A Word (Quotes)

QuotesI love good quotes.  They have the ability to teach us what we don’t know or precisely echo what we do.  A collection of quotes is like having all those great things we underline in books together in one place. They are concentrated wisdom…saying a lot with a little.  That’s why I enjoy them…they illustrate the power of words.
