Quotes of the Week- Weeks 7, 8, & 9

Okay, I admit: I have been quite negligent of my weekly quotes. Three weeks have gone by! Wow! I am a fairly dedicated and consistent person, so I apologize for a lack of consistency these past couple of weeks. That said, it IS still summer, and I’m home relaxing and taking Geometry so I’m a little busy too. I hope your summer (or winter, for those who may be reading from the Southern Hemisphere) is filled with happy, fun activities just like mine!

Anyways, I always hate being short-changed for anything, so I am giving all 15 quotes I missed. They vary, just like my moods and anyone else’s, but are all worth reading just the same. Here we go, fifteen previously-forgotten quotes:
