Greetings, I'm Angela Page and welcome to Folk Plus. I'm one who loves quotes. For the show today, I have matched some quotes with contemporary folk songs that I feel are songs going after the same sentiment.   The first quotes involve starting over after failure and I have matched them with a song was written by stan rogers, commisioned for the Canadian Olympics about coming home and starting again. Here are the quotes.
