Reading a line, phrase or excerpt from a famous author, actor, poet, gardener, artist, or any inspiring person affirms our own beliefs and truths that we may have forgotten. Like pearls of wisdom, they seize our attention, creating a moment of lucid clarity that can inspire, motivate, or change our mindset. Quotes can be uplifting and apt reminders of how we would like to live our lives. Also, quotations can provide a new perspective in difficult times and give us a fresh approach that gladdens the heart and makes us feel enlivened. I hope you enjoy the following favourites from my collection.
