Random Quotes

I was looking through an old file of quotes on my laptop this evening. I’m not entirely sure what I was in search of, nor that I found it, but it did bring to mind some quotes I really like, and some things I need to think about again these days. Mostly so I don’t forget them, but also to set them out for you to ponder as well, here are a few:

we cannot live without and know we
cannot live within.
