Famous Quotes to get you through your day.
Quotes have been used for many centuries as little pieces of philosophical information that we can apply to our lives, to make them seem more relevant to the things around us. They can be funny, sad, inspirational, hopeful, or any other emotion that we feel. And they come from all walks of life, from famous presidents and prime ministers to singers and performers. So no matter who you are, you can find a little snippet from history that means something to you.
