Contemplative Quotes

Anyone who reads my blog knows I like to end my pieces with quotes.  So, today I decided to throw together some of my favorite quotes and sayings for you today. As you read through them, don’t just scan through, and then do something else. Instead, contemplate on what each quote is saying and try to imagine how they could affect your life. I know they have deeply influenced mine.
