I’ve always been fascinated with quotes because in one or two sentences you can be motivated and inspired to change the way you think, feel, and behave. In fact, a good quote heard or read at the right time,
can change your life forever.

The following quotes are some of my favorites. If you have a favorite, by all means send it on,
