  1. I enjoyed reading through these quotes so much! I think you have inspired to me to keep a quote journal along with my yearly book journal for this coming year! Here is another quote for you that I DID write down from Suzanne Woods Fisher's book "The Letters". "She wasn't sure what the end of the day would bring, but she decided that from now on, she would savor sweet moments, like this one, as much as she could. Like one bite doughnuts."

    1. Oh, what a quote! Love it, Laura. And I'm so glad I could inspire you today, well yesterday. :) I started collecting quotes by writing reviews for most of the books I read. I like to include a quote in them but don't have the memory to just recall them when I need them. So I write them down. I think this quote post is something I'd like to do every December, if it works out. So glad you stopped by!
