I've loved quotes for a long time. I used to go to the library, check out quote books, and then compile the best ones into my journals. Well a few months ago I was reading some quotes that were posted on Facebook. I decided that their was nothing particularly difficult about saying nice things that might motivate, inspire, or make someone laugh. So I started writing my own. I had also been growing out my beard and took a self portrait in the style of Hemingway. When paired with my quotes they seemed to have a little more gravitas. Here they are for your enjoyment.
