Alright! This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! My top 10 quotes from 2021! I did not read enough books, or collect enough quotes, this year to warrant a top 5 quotes. All the same I love these.

Alright! This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! My top 5 quotes from 2020! I was ruthless. I was horrible.
