Great Quotations Keep Running Into Me

I Love Quotations!  To be able to learn from the wisdom of well-known and less-known people is truly a gift - an opportunity to view and understand the world through a snapshot from someone else's mind. These are just a collection of quotes that "hit" me over the last several days.  Most have been shared with me from my Facebook friends.

The first one is an original from one of them, who should focus on stand-up comedy instead of real estate. My favourite is the one from Mary Crowley.
