Quotes I Like

Fall is here!  Fall is here!  I thought it might be fun to kick off my favorite season by gathering some of my favorite quotes together.  Some of these I find funny, others are inspirational, and some give pause.  They’re in no particular order.  Of course, this is not an exhaustive list, and most tend toward art.  I've given credit where I've known the source.  Anyway, hope you enjoy.  And happy Friday!  Let’s party like we’re Lacey!

You may notice Brian Rathbone earned several spots on this list.  I don’t know him personally, but I’ve been following him for awhile online.  Besides having a pretty awesome first name, he’s quite an entertaining fellow.  If you’re not following him on Twitter, let me encourage you to do so.  You should also pick up one of his books and give him a try.  After you’ve finished reading all of mine, of course.  Winking smile
