Most of us find public speaking a bit intimidating.  And, writing words that will be read by many others can be just as daunting.  For that reason, I really admire people who have the gift of speaking or writing in a meaningful, eloquent manner and with words that I remember long afterward. 
Maybe that’s why I am a collector of quotes.  Some are famous, some less well known.  But, all are memorable. 

I thought I would share some of my favorites with all of you this week.  Hopefully, at least one of these will be new to you and cause you to think about yourself or those around you in a different way.  Enjoy!
