I found this quote too many years ago on a card and it has been in every home I have lived in. Amazing that the card has survived!!!!
“Life is a daring adventure or nothing”…….. Helen Keller (a blind, deaf and dumb girl who was taught how to communicate and it opened her life). It’s so inspiring and that is why I love it.
This started my love of quotes and I actually have a little note book dedicated to them. As I find a new one, I enter it in my book and then I never lose them. When it comes time to sending a card to a friend, I always seem to have the right words to add.
So I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites with you all out there. I am sure you will find your own favorite…
