I was recently rummaging through my inspiration folder in hopes of some motivation and stumbled upon an article by A Cup of Jo where she shares some of the most beautiful sentences she has read. As someone who has always kept a diary of words, I knew I had to follow.
So, here are a few of my best-loved lines that have spoken to my soul over the years. Hope you enjoy and share a few of your favourites too!
