For the ardent readers, you get excited when you come across a quote that you can relate to. If you are like me, before reading a book, you go straight to the back to check if the author allocated a few pages for quotes. Quotes are concise sentences that express wisdom and knowledge, awaken motivation, inspiration and happiness. I often look out for quotes that will encourage, edify and help me visualize my actions.
Sharing information is very satisfactory and today I choose to share some of the quotes that have helped shape my success. As you read and internalize them, I would like to challenge you; what are some of the philosophies and sayings that you stand by?
Enjoy the read.
