Inspiration and Motivation
The best quotes are snippets of wisdom targeted at addressing the misunderstood realities of our imperfect world. These are some of my favorite quotes –all said by some of the greatest innovators to ever live – that inspire and motivate me each and every day.

Charles R. Swindoll

If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.
Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
Rita Mae Brown
