Most of the quotes were collected because I like the messages or lessons they had in them. They each inspired me in some way. I placed the first quote in that position for a reason. If you read the first entry and understand the meaning behind it, you will understand why I collected the quotes. Not everyone will agree with every quote I collected. But the first entry will speak for me. My hope is that other people can find the same lessons and wisdom that I did, and maybe even ones I have not seen. I hope they will be meaningful to others.
