Gary’s Quotes of the Month – Inspirational Gems for August
We love quotes.
We use them to express our feelings in greeting cards, to impress our friends with how smart we are and to hang in the air to denote irony.
Image Memes – often containing misquotes – flow in our social streams like leaves on a brook.
Whether they’re inspirational quotes that nudge us back on track or quotes that break our days with a welcome laugh – wise or witty, they light our way.
Each first day of the month, Gary Blair, President of Image24, publishes a list of quotes to inspire us throughout the coming 30 or 31 days.
(February, with the least number of days, needs inspiration the most.)
Gary writes in his intro that August is the month when Christopher Columbus first set sail across the Atlantic ocean.
He apparently set in motion what would become the summer holiday activity of traveling to new and unfamiliar places!
(Thankfully, with less disastrous repercussions on native populations.)
Here are Gary’s quotes for August:
