The Power of Words

From my Pinterest board

I collect quotations.  I have a big fat file of quotes here at Prep, two huge file folders at home, and a board on Pinterest, entitled "Inspiration--Words".  Some are adorning the walls in my home, complete with calligraphy & lovely artwork matted and framed.  I'm a huge fan of people who can turn a phrase, create a mood, and weave words into a beautiful tapestry.  Throw in some wisdom, and you've got the total package. 

In childhood, you may have read, “Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”, a line from Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.  Simple.  Optimistic.  What books spoke to you when you were young?  Do you still remember the lines by heart?  What words of wisdom will you read aloud to your children?
