[wurd kuh-LEK-ter] noun. - a blog dedicated to collecting words and quotes of all sizes, shapes, and origins.
I have always had a fondness for words and quotes. I have amassed quite the a collection, and I am eager for it to continue growing. I keep quotes everywhere. Jotted in notebooks, typed into my phone, written on my bedroom walls, in word documents on my computer, scribbled away on pieces of paper... This blog is nothing more than my attempt to keep the quotes and words and other musings that I love so much all in one tidy, pretty, little place.
Feel free to share any words or quotes or poems you love by sending me a message (submit box not ask box). Please be sure to share the source of the quote if you know it, so that I don't have to go looking for the proper person to credit. Enjoy!
Regardless of the particular industry, business is business- and it comes with a predefined set of rules… The first rule of business. You want to know how something works, you follow the money. You find out how it’s made and who controls it. And you speak the language.

Find something that you love. Something that gets you so excited you can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning. Forget about money. Be happy.The Pursuit of Happyness, Chris Gardner
Give your children enough money to do something but not enough to do nothing.The Descendants
Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening. You are either stressfully waiting for something - more money, security, affection - or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting.
People are born, they have a limited amount of time going around thinking life is dandy but then, inevitably, tragedy strikes and they realize life equals loss! The whole point of the game is to minimize the pain caused by that equation! Now some people do it by having kids, or making money, or taking up coin collecting, and others do it by getting wasted.28 Days
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Henry David Thoreau
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.Charles R. Swindoll
