The Daily Word

The Daily Word

To be honest, I can remember just about everything ever if I chose to. I will say, when it comes to quoting great minds of other people, I write things down. Not only do I write them down; I write them places where I am forced to stumble across them again. Every single day, I start my day with a Spanish lesson, and a positive word with my god-mother. Here are some of the great quotes and thought provoking words I revisit.
