Random Quotes


Just as the title says, these are random quotes. I found them on one of my favorite quote sites (www.christianquotes.com). I gathered these awhile ago, and decided instead of posting one a day, I'd go ahead and group them together, unsure if I'd be able to do the daily thing since school is starting in two days.

- Albert Camus

"The right manner of growth is to grow less in one's own eyes."
