Quotes Inspirational

Lately, I have regularly posted inspirational quotes on my Facebook and Twitter. What I like about inspirational quotes is that they contain so much wisdom in so few words. Some of them really open your mind and heart – just reading them has the power to give you a eureka! moment. Based on the comments I have received from others, it seems that they also share the same feelings.

Since the quotes are so popular, I decided to collect over 30 inspirational quotes so that you can all benefit from these golden words of wisdom. These are quotes that have been meticulously handpicked by me while surfing the net, reading books, or just quotes that I write when I get an epiphany moment. I have grouped the citations into broad categories for easy reference.
