Back in 2013, I wrote a post sharing my favorite quotations. Since then, my interest in quotes has declined a bit--context is quite important, and it often gets lost amidst these pithy phrases! Nevertheless, I've written a handful of other posts about good quotes since then, and today, I'd like to add a few more to the list, drawn from my Goodreads and my Pinterest.
