Quotes for DIY Projects

Some of my favorite reading material are famous and inspirational quotations. Earlier this week, I realized I had lost my copy of Harper's Book of Quotations, so I went to Amazon to purchase another copy.

I love quotations and love that they are so popular in home decor. Much of the art work with quotations are expensive, so I like to create my own.

I have compiled a list of the quotes that I find useful for any craft project. These quotes are from poems, songs, movies and random quips, so keep in mind, they may have copyrights if you intend to sell them. Feel free to use these in your next DIY projects! I added the author of the quote, if available.
