Monday Quote

"The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way."
~Robert Kiyosaki~


My lovely friend Kristin asked me where I get my quotes from. I've been "collecting" quotes as far back as I can remember - words written on desks, walls - found in books or even said in conversation, some even left on my car windshield or mailed to me at work by a secret admirer when I was in college. I'd write them down on whatever was handy at the moment - a napkin, my hand, back of a receipt, etc. Sometimes if I have something I am thinking about or wrestling with, I will google the topic with "quotes" added and I find some of them that way. Another search tactic I've done is searching for quotes of authors I have liked. My local email server provides news headlines as well as quotes when I sign in and I am certain there is probably a Facebook application or other applications that would also provide with quotes. Most of the time, the quotes I use come to me - but sometimes searching and finding them is like going on a treasure hunt!
