"Colors fade, temples crumble, empires fall, but wise words endure." ~Edward Thorndike
I love quotes...I collect them in fact. Whenever I come across a thought provoking, inspirational, or uplifting quote, I save it. To me, a powerful quote is more than just words. In fact, history is filled with inspirational words that created defining moments for human civilization.
I like to use these quotes to center myself. I feel that we can almost always attribute any given quote to at least one aspect of our lives or to a particular emotion that we have been feeling. Gandhi, Martin Luther King JR., Socrates, Mother Theresa, Robert Frost, and Hellen Keller are but a few of the sources of the most thought-provoking quotes known to man.
For a little over a year, I've been sending out an inspirational quote via my "thought of the day" email. These quotes come from the collection of various quotes that I have collected over the years. I know some of my blogger friends already receive these from me, but for those who do not, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to ask you if you would like to be added to this list.
If so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you would like to be added to my recipient list! You can also follow me on Twitter here. I look forward to connecting!
Do you find inspiration in quotes? Is there a quote that you find particularly inspiring?
