      My own personal quote from experience, if I may: Every new person you meet, is like opening a new bank account and making a deposit. It never fails to surprise me how kind people are as a rule and how helpful in times of need.

      WOW WOW WOW!!!

      I am already in love with quotes and now this hub on quotes might make me want to marry quotes. lol!!!

      A really amazing collection of quotes. I wonder if people will start learning the message in quotes.

      For instance this great quote: “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude, Don’t complain.” The message is pretty simple but no one learns.
