One of the fondest memories of my Granddad Nelson was trading quotes regularly over email. Sadly I lost the email archive when I went on my mission, but it has continued to be an interest of mine. I hope you enjoy my collection of quotes. A bit of everything from religion to politics to leadership.

If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.

How do you know when you have met the love of your life? If you need to ask this question, you have not yet met that person.
