I collect weird things. Okay, not all of them are weird. Lots of people collect rocks. Bolts and nuts, not so much, but that’s another story. One thing I love to collect is the teabag papers from Good Earth Teas. Why?
There is a quote on every paper.
And here are some random ones that I pulled out of the pile that I have.

Ignorance of certain subjects is a great part of wisdom. ~ Hugo De Groot (1583-1645)
Those are just a sampling of the ones I’ve collected over the past couple years. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with all the tags, but now my sister is indulging me and saving the tags from her teabags as well. It’s fun to have that little bit of a quote in your head throughout the day. A smidgen of awareness.
