Welcome to eCards by Susan

As a life-long curator of quotes, it is a long-held eCard dream of mine to add them to my website. I love quotes because the right one at the right time does a lot to bring me into balance or inspire me into action and I have used quotes to do just that many, many times over the years.

Out of all of the things that people have to say, what makes some phrases so powerful that they become favorites of many and often for hundreds and even thousands of years? I think the reasons for reading quotes are as varied as the imagination. But to narrow it down a bit …

Why Do People Love Quotes?

For one thing, there is an appeal that lies in a good turn of a phrase and motivational psychology. I find that they stick with you and in times of need, they sometimes pop up in your mind. It’s almost like an instant response after a while when you carry your favorite quotes around in your mind. Moreover, a good motivational quote per day carries a subtle yet enduring positive influence throughout your day.

Here are a few reasons I believe people everywhere love to read quotes.

They provoke feelings and thought.
♦ Most carry a quick, powerful, stand-alone punch.
Quotes take us from gloomy to hopeful in an instant.
Sent via email, they are a wonderful, fast, effective gift to show someone I care.

Searching for the Right Quotes

If you love quotes as much as I do and use them regularly on social media, the search is sometimes difficult, especially when you narrow it down to a particular topic.

To being a quote project, I usually go to GoodReads or BrainyQuotes to search for quotes because both sites have fabulous search engines and organization which makes it easy to find what you want. It’s also great fun to simply browse through the sites looking for random quotes.
