I have a thing for inspirational and interesting quotes. Not sure how or why this developed, but it did. Maybe it had something to do with my love for biographies, which always include good quotes from the subjects. Nonetheless, there are some great quotes out there are a wide variety of topics.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes, from favorite historical figures, artists, authors and more.
