Some Of The Best …

All That We Are


When I’m doing my research and general reading I often come across a quote that gives me one of those aha or ohhh moments.

They resonate so deeply with me I write them down so I don’t forget, usually on a piece of scrap paper or whatever is on hand at the time.

Over the years these bits of paper have started cluttering up my desk, so the last time I was de-cluttering like a ninja I thought it best to record them all in a document.

Some of these quotes might resonate with you too, so here they are, in no particular order, all together for the first time.

All but two are unattributed, I apologise for that. None of these quotes are mine but all of them are relevant and meaningful to me.
