I am always writing quotes in my journal or squirreling away the little pieces of advice on Yogi tea bags. I realized the other day how often my favorite words of wisdom tend to circulate through my head, and what a source of inspiration they truly are. Below is a running list of my favorites:

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -Shel Silverstein

Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes"
