The following quotes might be just empty strings of words for some people, but certainly not for the likes of me. I find these quotes beautiful in a poetic sort of way.

They have a way of stirring my interest in life and in words every time I read them, and it doesn't even matter what they are supposed to mean. If you are anything like me, you're going to love them. Enjoy!
