One might think that I got the idea of power quotes from a site like BrainyQuote, which is a great site if you need to find a quote by a famous or notable person very quickly. But that's not how it came to me. You see being a student of the Bible, you have what are called "memory verses". Particular scriptures that you want to memorize and be able to recall when needed. Well there used to be a religious publication (apologies for not being able to remember the name) and they had something referred to as "power verses". A memory verse that gave you power! It's like a "Get thee behind me Satan" verse you use to thwart those who try to trouble you. Yeah. You think of the verse instead of punching the person in the face or yelling at them. Don't know if this is a technique used in anger management classes, but it works for me!
At any rate, taking the idea a step further, because quote collecting is my hobby and blogging is my home business endeavor, the two were joined in marriage and so far the union seems to be quite useful!

Started collecting these types of quotes wherever I find them. This one is Number 3. was grabbed from Facebook. “Worry is a misuse of imagination.”
