Inspirational Quotes!

I  love quotes.  I collect these quotable magnets that adorn the side of my refrigerator.  (My quotable magnets are currently packed until we move to our new house!)  I got quote #11, my first quotable magnet, shown below, right before leaving for law school.  It was fitting at the time.  I had it displayed on my little dorm refrigerator.  Below are a few of my favorite quotes that I hope that you find inspiring!
