It’s Friday, race fans. Friday Friday Friday. That means a whole day spent wrapping up the loose ends of your week and gearing up for two days of fun. I hear rumors of sun in certain parts of the country, but I’m not making any promises! Sooner or later your weekend is going to come to an end, however, at which point you’re going to have to decide how much inspiration you’re going to have come Monday morning.
Kick off your weekend and get yourself revved for the new week by adding one of these quotable business, marketing and printing quotes to your desktop. (And don’t forget to Tweet, Facebook and share the love with your friends and co-workers. They’re going to have to get up on Monday too!
