Soccer Quotes

I love quotes of all kinds -  football quotes, soccer quotes,  Dr. Who...  My kids can tell you that they find little sticky notes from me in odd places on a regular basis.  I started with the little "I love you" and "Have a Spectabulous Day" notes in their lunch boxes.  As they've grown older, I've continued with notes, but just expanded on the message.

This is a page that I hope to grow, so come back for new additions.
