Can I Quote You On That?

I was reading the latest issue of "The Craft Report" earlier today and came across a quote that struck me, "Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there's love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong." That was from the oh so talented Ella Fitzgerald. It's a very poignant statement at this time in my life. One I hope to commit to memory.

I've come across quotes from time to time that make me take a pause. I thought I'd share a few with you:
