52 Lists Week # 15: My Favorite Quotes

When I saw this week's list assignment: your favorite quotes, I thought uh oh! I don't memorize or know any quotes.  

Then I remembered I had a whole Pinterest board full of them! 

So, I read my board and pulled my favorites ones off of there.

Many are just quotes I find funny or inspiring.
