We all seem to have a favorite quote from that lighthearted 20th century philosopher Yogi Berra or a deeper one from writers like Henry David Thoreau or political figures like Winston Churchill. The following quotes are from the Summer 2017 edition of Stay Thirsty Magazine. Thoughtful words from accomplished people that might just strike a chord.
