Quote Junkie

Some people collect stickers or stamps. I, however, collect quotes. Whenever I come across a quote I make sure to write it down. Maybe I'm just weird like that, but I like having a list of inspirational quotes to look at. The following is a growing list of quotes that I really like. Just to point out the obvious. Hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I do!

“All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they dream with open eyes, and make them come true.”
-D.H. Lawrence

“When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I told them 'happy'. They told em I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life.”

"During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy."
 -Joann C. Jones
