Let’s be fair, we all likes quotes. It is a source of inspiration of human experience that is encapsulated in a sentence or two. Some of us, love quotes and are obsessed at quoting quotes (or collecting them). Well, it is my desire to steadily build a collection of favourite quotations.

 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

~1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NLT)


 Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.
