Thought Provoking Quotes I Came Across

From a long time, I have always liked to read and collect quotes. Simply because quotes are usually short, easy to read (usually take less than a minute), get you to think, give you a preview to a whole new perspective (several times), can inspire you and usually can set the tone for your day.

I love to read a positive and inspiring quotes at the start of the day. And if I find a quote I like very much, I usually save it for later / tweet it .

In this blog, I am listing a few inspiring / thought provoking quotes I came across recently:
