Books Quoted

Quoted | December 2019 Edition

I have always been a lover of meaningful quotes.
When I was little, I used to fill up notebook after notebook with quotes I resonated with.

And here is to me continuing the tradition.
After all, words have power and they sure can impact us. 

Hence,I bring to you a monthly curation of quotes I come across  during my reading journey. This one being my December 2019 Edition!
