Staci Rose says:

These are all great quotes…and I am a quote hound. But, maybe, as a woman, I like to know that my own gender (people I most relate to for obvious reasons) have witty and poignant things to say about life.

I’d be happy to share some I’ve found if you’re open to that. 🙂

Anna J says:

Churchill’s and Twain’s are my favorites.

Great inspirational quotes. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry for not commenting on anything relating to your post here though the quotes are motivating, but your feed caught my attention and I am amused by it. What happened actually? I mean there isn’t 6 billion internet users on the planet earth yet? 😀
