Quotes are words stolen from others we hope to make our own. The quotes that stick, are those we either relate to or hope will lead our lives.
We all choose our own. I’ve chosen these because they speak to me and hope they will help me through the New Year. They will serve as a reminder when I lose my way.
Enjoy them and make them your guide, as they will be mine.
