I love my collection of quotes. Sometimes, when I’m feeling uninspired, I really do pull them out and read over them, perhaps even for the thousandth time.

There’s something magical about the words of great people, who’ve been there, done that. Here are some of my favourite ones I thought would be nice to share:
