Famous Quotations and Sayings - a collection

Collecting quotations have been my hobby since I was in high school. I was inspired by my English-Literature teachers who tirelessly wrote a quotation each day on the board for us to fonder and she challenged us on how we can relate it on our daily life.

I am always amaze and impress by the wit of the writers, poets and speakers who are able to express with clarity in words the truth about the different aspects of life.

I have a brown spiral notebooks and on the cover I wrote "Wisdoms of the Wise" this is where I copied all the quotations that my teacher wrote on the board and the quotations which I found and read from books, magazines, newspaper and desk calendars. For years, I have been adding to my collection regularly from Anonymous sayings to Shakespeare famous lines, my quotations collection grew bigger and as I get older I tend to collect more of motivational and inspirational quotations.

I like going to card shops and browse on their cards, posters and calendar collections. They are wonderful display of words and pictures and truly uplifting.

But just like everyone else, I have been preoccupied with other things in life and my quotation collection has been set aside for a very long time.

But now that I have discovered that I could read my collection anytime I want and at the same time share this collection with others through hubbing, I was so thrilled and so here I am again I have revived my passion of collecting quotations.

I have put together my quotation hubs and I have some of my favourite quotations matched with photographs that I have taken using my digital camera.

Hello MM Del Rosario from Latvia!

The combination of the picture and a quote is a very powerful motivational weapon), isn't it? Here's one from my collection.

"It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had."

/Elizabeth Kubler-Ross/

Best regards!
