Bridges are metaphors for everything in life – Bridge Quotes & Photographs

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: July 14, 2011 | Categories: Images, Inspirational, Photographs, Quotes

I love bridges. Whether small or grand, the beauty of a bridge is not lost on me. My title comes from the quote by Jim West – “Bridges are metaphors for everything in life, … The bridge is not just about getting back and forth between north and south. The bridge is about connecting our communities.”

While looking at some beautiful photographs of bridges I was reminded of some quotes that talk about bridges, both figuratively and literally. I’d like to share them with you:
