Step right up ladies, gentlemen, and blogging friends to read some of my favorite quotes. Quotes are the best thing since hot chocolate, and here are my favorites, so sit back and enjoy. Maybe even with some hot chocolate, just for me.
I love quotes.

When ever I go somewhere, I always have a piece of paper and a pen, so if I find a great quote, I can write it down.

But there's more to the Dr Seuss one. "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep at night because reality is finally better than your dreams."
But I'm just being nit-picky. ;)
