The other day whilst perusing the interwebs, I stumbled on several quotes and inspirational bric-a-brac that I quite liked. Some of it cheesy, some of it funny, some of it not-so-much. There were also quotes which once read I felt the need to conquer a small country, or take on a task of almost insurmountable challenge.
Point is, these quotes moved me in some way.
With this in mind, I decided that I really needed a place to house the quotes so that I could refer back to them whenever I needed a large dose of Awesome with a side of Kick-Ass. I figured my blog was as good a place as any to store them. In fact, it’s probably the best place as I tend to lose things if I write them down; worse still if I try to set them to memory and later attempt to recall them. My grey matter doesn’t appear to retain things like that anymore. I’d like to believe this is due to the fact that my grey matter is filled with equations and statistics and mathematical tchotchke. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m getting older.
Anyway, I’ve added a new menu to the blog. You’ll see it up there called Words. It will contain quotes of all sorts; some that make me laugh, some that make me think, some that inspire me to live each day as if it were my last, and some to remind me that I need to stop and smell the roses. Others are those that motivate me to train for a marathon on days where I’d much rather curl up in a ball with a blanket, a book, and a large bowl of scotch. Yes, I wrote bowl. Stop judging me.
I hope you’ll enjoy some of the quotes that I’ve listed. And if you have any that you find particularly awesome, please feel free to share.
