Thursday Thirteen #5: Favorite Quotes

I haven't had a chance to do a Thursday Thirteen the last two weeks with moving and the start of a new job and new semester. I'm in withdrawal! I'm having some template issues (or possibly it's just my computer), so I apologize in advance to visitors if things don't look quite right.

This week, I decided to list 13 of my favorite quotes. I have many more than 13 favorites. In fact, I have an entire notebook of quotes (along with scraps of paper that have yet to make it into the notebook). I hope you enjoy them and thanks for stopping by:)
