Image of Quotes That Changed My Life | Here & Air

I have never appreciated quotes the way I do now. I used to feel there so many of them coming from all sorts of angles –sometimes contradicting one another. I mean why should we follow some philosophy made up by one person? I guess I just didn’t see the point. Now, I’m obsessed with them and here’s why: I have a better understanding of who I am as a person. I used to take quotes as facts, but now realize I can choose the ones that resonates with my beliefs and weed out the ones that don’t. Quotes to me are now a simple way to express, motivate, relate, understand, imagine, and find hope in certain points in our lives. So with that said, I want to share some of the quotes that have had a huge impact on my life thus far.
