Words of Wisdom

How do you feel about motivational quotes? Do you find them inspiring or meaningless? They don’t often speak to me, but when they do, the message is loud and clear. I even have a Pinterest board of my favorite inspirational quotes to refer to when I need some food for thought.

Here are some of my favorites:

I don’t have any words of wisdom hanging on my walls as art, but that may soon change. Sarah Tolzmann of the blog Note to Self just launched her first Society6 store, The Print Shop, with art prints, framed art prints, stretched canvases and more.

I’ve long been a fan of Sarah’s work — she has a simple yet sophisticated graphic design style and a personal aesthetic I admireĀ  — and her “Words of the Week” posts are a favorite blog feature of mine. She’s turning some quotes from her popular series into art prints to sell on The Print Shop, starting with this great one from Thomas Edison on opportunity.
