Quotes of the Day - enjoying life

It's a cliche, but it's true: sometimes you just need to stop and smell the roses. So that's what I'm doing today - a beautiful Sunday in June. Here are some quotes that inspired me to 'enjoy life' today.

Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week. ~ Joseph Addison

And what I think is my favorite for today:
