    I have been learning English through quotes ( I am not a native English speaker) and I really enjoyed it because of two things:
    1) I find the quotes motivating and inspiring
    2) Quotes may contain a lot of new and useful vocabulary

    I am always waiting for new quotes in order to learn more words. Thanks a lot
    BTW: I am using facebook to never miss a single quote, it could be useful too !!
