Quotes are a wonderful way to get inspired, stay motivated, and think differently. I love reading them and discovering new ones, which is why I've put together this collection.

Now some of the quotes, I agree with and others I don't. I wanted to include all of them because what drives me in my career, may not drive you, which is why I try to offer as many different perspectives as I can.

So enjoy and check back often. I'll do my best to update this list frequently. And if you have one that's not listed, please don't hesitate to share.
