The Power of Our Minds, Inspirational Quotes

Quotes are a source of motivation, inspiration, relaxation, contemplation, and also courage. They can be held in one's memory, or placed somewhere they'll be seen regularly. Sometimes people put quotes on their bathroom mirror or fridge, others frame them and give them a home on work desks or walls. A good quote can help someone through emotional turbulence or support them as they push toward their physical limits. Perhaps, most importantly, quotes express complex messages, universal truths, and deep emotions, clearly and simply, in ways that resonate and move us.
