Definition of a QuoteWe all use quotes in our life, some more than others and others without realizing that they are quoting someone else. A quotation is the repetition of one expression as part of another one, particularly when the quoted expression is well-known or explicitly attributed by citation to its original source, and it is indicated by (punctuated with) quotation marks.* My personal favorite quote that I have used for years is more of a salutation than an actual quote, “Peace to You and Yours”.

Purpose of Life Quotes
Both Eleanor Roosevelt and Robert Bryne hit the nail on the head with their quotes on the purpose of life and if you look at Eleanor’s it encourages you to go out, seek new experiences, live life to the fullest without fear. Robert’s is more of it is what it is type of quote.

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”
Robert Bryne

Political Quotes
Some of my personal favorite quotes are of course very political in nature and come from the very men that assisted in the founding of this great nation, the United States of America. Some became Presidents while others served our great nation in other forms and continued to provide their years of knowledge to all that sought them out. Men such as George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Marshall, and James Madison. Men with such convictions that they were moved to take action, thankfully for us all that they did, otherwise we might just be a part of jolly ole England.

They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little
temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
