Inspirational Quotes

Various blank books for keeping good words.
Long before I ever started designing embroideries with quotes I started a little book to write down the words that inspire me. Some were by well known people, others things my friends and acquaintances said. Another fun inspiration was magnetic poetry. I had the little words on the refrigerator and while I was waiting for a pot to boil or toast to pop up I would compose little phrases and poems. My husband even got into the act and came up with some of the best ones. Of course now I have a Pinterest board called Good Words where I save lots of inspiration quotes and thoughts. You can check it out here.

Here is one of my favorites.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.

                                                                    Carl Jung

Patience is overrated. SWIM NOW!

                                             my friend Jan R.

Scream as though it is essential.

                                             magnetic poetry from Susan

What is your favorite quote? How do you save the words that are special to you?

I obviously inherited my love of quotes from my mother who used to scribble them onto scraps of paper and tuck them into any available space she could find in the house. It was 'interesting' when we had to clean out the house when she died!! I started putting a quote on my blog every time I write a post and I think people enjoy them. The internet is an endless source!
