Q is for Quotes!!!
Sometimes it is hard to put our own feelings and emotions into words. In those cases a good quote can get the job done. That’s why the greeting card industry is always popping. Other times it’s not so much about using a quote to describe how we feel but using it instead as a source of inspiration or encouragements.
