Quotes from Forrest

wisdomOver the next few weeks I’ll be sharing ‘Quotes from Forrest’.  These are quotes given to me by Forrest Fenn that he personally likes.   Last year we did something similar under a heading of Friday’s Fenn Favorite on my Facebook page.  I later included them all here on the site, under the same heading,  for all to see.  I will do the same with these.  After each week’s post on my Facebook page, I’ll update this page to include his new quote. (For those on my Facebook page, it will be under Tuesday’s Treasure)

Friday’s Fenn Favorite was inspired from a collection of quotes I gathered from Forrest’s books and posted under Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Quotes.  I love Proverbs 20:15 which states, “Gold there is, and rubies in abundance, but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel”, and so I wanted to create a collection of Forrest’s ‘rare jewels’.  To me, they are part of his treasure.

Besides loving quotes myself, I feel the following quotes might offer a unique perspective into what Forrest likes and how he thinks. They may just help provide a lead for understanding his Poem and finding his hidden million dollar treasure!  And if not, no matter.  It will be fun! 🙂
