15 Quotes to live by - #Blogtober17

I love love love love quotes. 

The really good ones I love with a passion.  The ones that speak to the real you.  Words joined together to jump out at you and make you think "THAT is the truth, that means something to me, that is how I want to live my life".  Or some that you just love but you don't know why, it's like poetry, you're not sure what it means but it resonates with your soul.

So for day 17 of #Blogtober17 I had to write a post for the theme of quotes.  I thought I would compile together my favourite quotes - most of them have probably appeared in previous posts, but all of them fit the criteria above.  I could have included more, but I thought 15 was enough!

I won't write much about them, the quotes can speak for themselves, that's what they're for.

Possibly my all-time favourite.  These are my ultimate goals in life!

The following quote really made an impression on me the first time I read it.  This is so important to remember.

I saw this one on someone's twitter header and immediately loved it.  I guess the meaning is open to interpretation ...

I later found out that it was by a zen monk who has a lot of interesting sayings.  This next one I thought was brilliant:

I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired by this compilation!  Would you include any different quotes?  What are your favou
