Did you know they call the 26th of December ‘Boxing Day‘ not because you will be throwing out all the boxes from all the presents you have received the day before, but it is supposed to be a European tradition of giving money and other gifts to those in need, or people in service positions via a box of food or drink? But a box is so much more than something you store things in, it can sometimes be an inspirational or thought-provoking quote like these ten (and some silly pictures of cats in boxes to accompany them)…
