Sometimes the right words can change your life.
I know this from personal experience. Many of us have used quotes as an inspirational force in our lives. Quotes can uplift our mood, motivate us, and help us to gain perspective. They can make us stop, and go into deep thought. Some quotes speak directly to our emotions and we feel as if the words are directed right at us. When they feel real, it causes us to pause our lives for just a moment as we take it in. Do you have a quote that moved you in some way?

But fail with wit, fail with grace, fail with style. A mediocre failure is as insufferable as a mediocre success. Embrace failure! Seek it out. Learn to love it. That may be the only way any of us will ever be free.”
