  1. My favorite Drake quote is, “Live without pretending. Love without depending. Listen without defending. Speak without offending.” I try to live my life by this quote. It’s never to late to learn something new, I try to do so everyday. That is what makes life exciting and keeps me younger at heart. I can learn something from anybody or anything. Life is good 🙂 Jeanette

    I love motivational quotes from unexpected people like drake.
