My daughter gave me a velvety covered moss green journal for Christmas a couple of years ago. In thinking what to fill it with, I came upon the idea of using it as a collecting place for the many quotes I find in the books I read which inspire me in some way. This has proved beneficial as I can rarely remember exact quotes or their sources.
As I read, I keep a small pad of Post-Its nearby and mark the quotes deemed worthy of my quote journal. After completion of a book, I take my journal from the bottom shelf of my bookcase and enter the quotes I’ve marked in it.
Every so often, I pick my journal up, read through it, and my spirits are lifted. The treasured quotes are one of the many things I love about reading. Some day my journal will be filled with a plethora of brilliant thoughts that touched my soul and changed my thinking for the better.
