Weekend Quotes

With the upcoming release of Destiny's Plan, promotion for the book on Social Media, and ensuring the manuscript has been formatted, approved and is ready for release, the comment:  life has been hectic, it's an understatement. Despite all that craziness, I've found some quotes I hope you will find interesting.

And with Shelley's admirable thought, I close the weekend quotes.  Have a blessed weekend.
