By now, it’s no secret that I love quotes.  The power of words is one of the reasons I love writing so much.  I love that the most powerful quotes can both evoke emotion and stir one to action.  There’s something to be said for a whole book on being the change or being a kind person.  But there’s also a place for quick wisdom…simple quotes to live by.  Sometimes, a lot can be said in just a little bit of space.  
Today, I’d like to share 20 quotes that inspire me and encourage me on a regular basis.  I hope you can find something that speaks to you as well.
