Camera Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Camera from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.
We can tell a sad story or a happy story,

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
