Quotes Can Be Nice

I love quotes, don’t you? I find quick bites of positivity or quirk a bit uplifting — even the tongue in cheek quotes are fun because they often say what many of us lack the courage to. This is one I particular like this week because it’s so true, right!?  I thought I’d share some quotes that I’ve been collecting over the past few weeks though I have tons more pinned here although some of those are definitely cheeky and not so G rated so viewer beware! These below are tame and good thoughts so enjoy them today as you go about your business…

    I love them all, but especially No, C and H, because of the illustration design :)

    I agree! Quotes are so lovely. You read them every time you pass them, whether you notice you do or not. So, we should surround ourselves with brave and kind and wonderful quotes!

    I also love quotes. They can lift my mood in an instant! The only problem – if I would put all my pinned quotes in my house I probably would end up covering the walls completely … :-) There are too many good ones. Maybe I should work out a rotating system! ;-)

    Love

    I LOVE quotes! Once I even started my own Quotes Book, taking note of lyrics, proverbs, poems…! Some of the most inspiring and fun ones come from the genius Oscar Wilde… I also have a ‘column’ in my blog entitled ‘Wise Words’.

    A wonderful collection! Quotes have become an art form to be displayed rather than hidden in a book or drawer. Enjoyed your post and Pinterest site!

    They are all so beautiful. I think quotes as well as single words can be so inspiring. It is what gives me the inspiration for my art. I surround myself with little reminders everywhere of words that can have such a nice impact on my day to day. Thank you for sharing some of your favorites!

    What a lovely selection of quotes and inspiring words. And here’s something funny, this christmas I gave myself the ‘wander’ poster and my mom the ‘invincible summer’ poster. And they both also look beautifully in real life ;) Great post!
