31 Day Blog Challenge: Favorite Quote

Oh man, I love a good motivational quote just as much as the next guy, but I don’t know if I have a single favorite. I mean, it really depends on the day and how I’m feeling I guess. So yeah, there’s no way I can just pick one. That would be like asking me to pick my all time favorite song. I just couldn’t do it! How about a nice list of some quotes I really like? Because who doesn’t like a nice list? 🙂
