Quotes Page

I am a quote junkie, and I've been collecting them for years. I'll probably keep adding to this whenever something new catches me, but just in case you're ever bored at work and want something to skim through, here you go. I've separated them into three catagories:quotes from movies, song lyrics, and literary figures/books. I've tried to keep them all in the motivational genre, and hopefully there's nothing in there that won't make sense out of context. Do enjoy!
