Quotes for life

I am an avid collector of quotes. Quotes have this wonderful power to teach us, chide us, change us, humor us, and move us to action. They become our mottoes and people remember the ones we say the most when they speak of us. Please share with me your favorite quotes and let me share with you some that have changed me. This is a work in progress and will be continually updated!
