13 Quotes I love.

 In no specific order. I was going through a lot of my old things and found random scribbles of mine. These are some quotes that I have found some meaning in through the years and some I just kind of found funny. Believe me I have way more than 13 sitting around at home. But these are just 13 I randomly picked out. Maybe one or a few of them will strike you. Each holds some meaning to me. Each I have applied to my life in some way or form. And maybe each will give you a little better understanding of the person I am.
