    I'm making sticky notes of interesting, inspiring, and funny quotes to stick on the back wall of my desk so I can look at them whenever I'm trying to procrastinate! So what are your favorite quotes? (I've also added a few short poems as well. I really love poetry!)

    Here are a couple I hung up:

    "To be interest in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with the spring."

    "The sincerest form of flattery is a steamroller."
