I'll admit it: I'm a word nerd.
I collect words—others' and my own—and save them for a rainy day. On that rainy day, if I'm feeling like the clouds in my life are too thick, the sun too obscured, and my dreams too unrealistic to reach, I'll pull those words out from where I've been saving them, and watch as a rainbow appears.
I'm not picky about whom I look to for inspiration. You'll see quotes in here from Gandhi and Oprah, Winnie the Pooh and Walt Whitman. I'll take encouragement wherever I can find it. As you read through these quotes, I hope they bring as much sunshine to your rainy days as they've brought to mine.
