Famous Quotes

With words, we can cause pain, shame, and fear, or we can inspire, heal, and love. With words, we can connect to the wisdom of people throughout history and around the world, through nothing more than the thoughts they leave us. How fortunate we are to feel this connection to some of the most inspiring minds of all time, simply because they chose to put their ideas into words. Let us be inspired to touch the world with words that reflect and create genuine truth, peace, and perhaps wisdom as well.
