{Assortment... of lost quotes}

I had this book that I lost for awhile that I used to write quotes in. I can't tell you how delighted I was to find it in a purse I haven't used in months.. My beloved little orange book. I just felt like today was a good quote day. So here... are some favorites.

Contemplative, inspiring sentiments from my book.
