Points to Ponder

When I was a little kid my grandmother “took in” the Reader’s Digest.  I always enjoyed reading it because the short articles, jokes and quotes made it perfect for an energetic kid with a short attention span.  One of my favorite sections was entitled “Points to Ponder” and included several thought provoking quotes.  I think that is where I got my love of quotes.  I hope you appreciate these as much as I do.  —Luke
