Good Quotes...

Encouragement quotes and Leadership quotes that inspire change.

Welcome to this collection of good quotes.

I have selected a variety of wise quotes, encouragement quotes and leadership quotes to inspire you to take the next step. (In your life or in your business.)

Quotes can be a very powerful tool to inspire you to change things around in your life.

I myself am a big admirer of Mahatma Gandhi . And it is one of his wise quotes I try to live by everyday:

- Be the change you want to see in the world -

It helps me to take responsibility for my life and empower myself (and hopefully others) to not complain about life too much with all its injustices, but instead do something about it! You see, like this I stay in control of the situation and keep my personal power to change whatever I feel is wrong with the world.

I hope you can find a quote like this in my collection of wise quotes too. A good quote can be the spark that lights your inner flame, and inspires you to live your life with passion!
