What's a quote?

Quote: repeat or copy out (a group of words from a text or speech), typically with an indication that one is not the original author or speaker.


Since I graduated high school six years ago, I have always been fascinated with quotes. Whether from a movie, song, someone I met, or from history, I could always find it to be something to remember. And I just thought I’d share some of the ones I’ve collected.

You can’t get success without risking failure. Unless we’re being intentionally foolish, a failure is never total. ~Alex and Brett Harris, Do Hard Things
