I’ve collected quotes since I was in high school. (Hmmm…Maybe earlier?) I have volumes of them in my computer, in the  books I write, in strategic plans for clients, and on the top of my file cabinets.

Quotes help me codify my thoughts…make me cry…inspire me…give me hope or sadness.

So I think I’ll share some favorites, old and new. How might you use these? How do you feel about these? Anything you want to share right here in the blog – with me and others?

“The one thing you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” Neil Gaiman. (Thanks, #SandyRees for tweeting this!)

I read this and feel empowered. Maybe that sounds silly. But sometimes I feel like I’m too out and too candid and swear too much and rant too much and and and and …. But that is me. My voice, my mind, my story, my vision. So I’ll celebrate being me.
