Wednesday Words of Widsdom

I'm a Facebook addict. More often than not I fill my frequent status updates with quotes and song lyrics. Sometimes, I just like the song so much that I want to inspire the toe tapping and chair dancing that I was enjoying. Sometimes, a quote describe what I'm feeling or thinking in a much more eloquent way than I ever could. Sometimes, I hear romantic song lyrics and  I wish that the singer wrote them about me or that I wrote about some imaginary person yet to enter my life. I hope you enjoy the random and electic words of wisdom below that have been speaking to me lately.
