Quotes of the Month: January


I decided to start another blog series: Quotes of the Month.

Quotes, sayings, thoughts, and words have so much meaning, and the juxtaposition of some with others or the syntax and diction used can play significant roles. Quotes can sometimes sum up what one is experiencing so effortlessly – and whether this may be a positive or negative thing, it could really hit home for somebody.

Quotes have so much meaning to me: inspiration, release, fresh and pivotal ideas, explanatory; the list of adjectives goes on. Because of this, I decided to create this blog series to summarize the month and draw hope, brightness, and positivity towards the next.

Here are some of the quotes that I found this month – that I have related to or connected with, inspired me, or really brought something to light. The post will be updated continuously throughout the month when I find others that resonate with me.
