Some Quotations to Live By …

Here I am on vacation and I was looking through the book shelves and happened across a book of quotes assembled to celebrate a new graduation. The book is organized into three major sections … Moving On, Hanging On and Moving Out. It is designed to give some life guidance to a new grad and there is some good stuff in there.
