Moses' Collection of Quotations

I've been a collector of quotations for many years. I love being challenged to think, and many quotes make me do just that. In recent years I have been adding many quotes that inspire me from books I have been reading and from any writing that I encounter in a day.

Please, if you have quotations that are meaningful to you, please share them with me and let me know if I can put them on this website. If a person has shared a quote with me that person's name is listed after the quotation. Note that some of the names are very unique and have ODS in front of them. That's because those are the Outdoor School camp names of friends who have worked with me at an Outdoor School camp who shared the quotation.

If you know that I've made a mistake or know of an author's name that I've left off, please contact me! And, if a quotation is meaningful to you in some special way, please consider sharing your experience with me!

Feel free to use these quotations as you will. May quotes contained here inspire you!

Moses aka Dean Bones
