As we begin a new year, I want to focus a little more on reflection than solely on travel. To broaden the quotes is to broaden one's horizons, so to speak. So, any quote is open for saving, discussing, or discarding. Trying something new is always a great adventure, right?
This might be a great way to start the new year.
And there is always room for some good lyrics:
Simply, "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" by Aretha Franklin
“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all” – Helen Keller
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”--- Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Life is meant for good friends and great adventures” – Anonymous
