Anyone who knows me knows that I love quotes. I love searching for them, quoting them, comprising them, etc. What are quotes anyway but a few beautiful words of wisdom? I love to take the quotes that really speak to me and use them in my art. I recently constructed a large “Dream Board” in which I utilized several of my favorite quotes as they are generally things I strive for in my own life. 

As I was surfing the net  today I happened to discover some more wonderful gems at, entitled “10 Funny Life Quotes, That are Surprisingly Profound,” by Vincent Nguyen.These are awesome…and so true:  

1. “Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he’ll believe you.  Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he’ll have to touch it to be sure.” –Murphy’s Law

6. “Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.” -Unknown

10. “Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut-up.” –Unknown.
