One of my favorite quotes about keeping a journal

I believe all our stories are worth sharing. =)

"Get a notebook, my young folks, a journal that will last through all time, and maybe the angels may quote from it for eternity.  Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and you triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies."


"A journal is the literature of superiority.  Each individual can become superior in his own humble life.  What could you do better for your children and your children's children than to record the story of your life, your triumphs over the adversity, your recovery from a fall, your progress when all seemed black, your rejoicing when you had finally achieved?


Some of what you write may be humdrum dates and places, but there will also be rich passages that will be quoted by your posterity."
