I'd love to hop on a free call with you to find out the best way to support you!

It’s no secret by now that I love quotes.  I just love being inspired by things other people have said and I find it’s amazing what happens in our hearts and minds when we read something that really resonates with us, or better yet, motivates us to change.  I once read that people want to read what their soul already knows to be true.  I agree, and when I was searching for quotes to use in this post, I deeply felt the truth of these ten.  
This world is not an easy place sometimes.  Most of the time, in fact.  But when we spend time tending to the needs of others, and not just our own, when we look for ways to be united with our fellow man rather than noticing only what separates us…that is when our soul is set ablaze and we find that even in difficult times, there is hope.
My prayer is that you will be as inspired by these quotes as I have been, that you will find joy in knowing that many others before us have begun a good work on this planet, and that you will find the courage to continue it.  

“Be soft, don’t let the world make you hard.  Be gentle, don’t let people make you difficult.  Be kind, don’t let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless.” – Nurudeen Ushawu

“In every time, in every culture, ordinary people have done extraordinary things.” – M.R. Neer

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Ghandi

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.” – Helen Keller

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

“I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.” – Mother Theresa

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.” – J.M. Barrie

“We cannot live only for ourselves.  A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.” – Herman Melville
