    I love quotes too! They really do get you thinking…I have quotes posted all over my office! A recent one that SmartChic told me was “Aspire to Inspire – Before you Expire” and I have been trying to do this every single day! I work at a school and find that inspiring kids can really make your day!

    Love your site, Cynthia. Yes, sometimes we need a little boost to get us thru the down times.

    I love Oprah’s quotes as I see she focuses on passion as do I. Passion drives what I do and when my passion is faltering, so is my focus.
