Quote of the Month

As a writer, I love a good quote. So much, in fact, that every month I send one to my publisher. Then one day my publisher said to me, “Geanna, this is delightful. You should share your quotes with others.” So here I am–sharing my favorite inspiring, fun, oh-so-true quotes with you. Enjoy!
