Ever since I was a kid I found inspirational quotes so comforting, their wisdom and positivity appealing to my confused, introverted spirit - uncertain, inexperienced, and continually questing for profound truths and wise ways. My father would bring these small business diary booklets home from work filled with motivational poems and quotes, and I would pour over their pages, savoring the words, soaking up their faith and power to uplift, their message to persevere and try again despite the odds. For years I've been collecting the quotes that spoke to me, soothed my soul and given me guidance. I hope you find them as inspirational and thought-provoking as I have. The backdrop for each of these is one of my original artworks. Enjoy - there's more to come! 😃
