It’s been a while since I’ve shared some juicy quotes. As we move towards the end of another year, it’s only fitting to reflect on people, things or situations that we said goodbye to this past year.  It is also fitting to share some kick-ass quotes that might eloquently reflect these happy endings. Here are some that have gotten me through the year.
