Inspirational quotes, anyone?

I love quotes. In fact, I have an entire notebook dedicated to quotes. I waste spend a great deal of time perusing the internet for quotes. And don't even get me started on what an ordeal it was to pick only one inspirational quote to paint on my wall...

Anyway, I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you all! If you have any amazing, funny, or thought-provoking quotes you think I'd enjoy, comment or email me!
Of course, I could rant on and on about these quotes and their significance. Hell, I could write a book on philosophy where each chapter is based off of a different quote (on second thoughts, that's not an awful idea...). But, I'll spare you. Enjoy these amazing quotes!
