Motivation & Inspiration

I am not really the type of person who faithfully abides by a specific quotation or motto in the ways I live my life, but I know a lot of people who do, so I figured I would browse the internet and seek out some quotations that caught my attention.

A lot of people tease individuals who place faith and meaning in a saying, and I don’t think that is right. If a person is able to find meaning in something, why should someone else dictate whether or not it is a valid thing to abide by? Simply respect what makes other persons feel good.

So, here are a few quotes that resonate with me:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

– Margaret Mead

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
