17 Thought Provoking Quotes

I have always liked inspirational quotes. They drive me, motivate me and inspire me. In dark times, they help me find my way. My two favorite quotes are, “The mind is everything, what you think you become” by Buddha and one from the Talmud that says, “Every blade of grass has an angel who whispers, grow, grow!”

I went to my collection and decided to share some goodies with you. I think you will agree that these quotes are thought provoking.
