Today's Prompt: Fact**
I enjoy reading quotes. They are little bits of wisdom, inspiration, or humor tucked in a sentence or two. They can make you smile and inspire you to move forward.
I have always wanted to say or write something that was so profound, enlightening, or just plain silly that it was quote-worthy. So I may slip one of my own in the mix.
The quotes I'm sharing today are some of my favorites and some new ones as well.
