Inspiration

Below are some quotes from a variety of sources that I have found inspirational and would like to share – they touch on the areas of leadership, the power of groups and cooperation, self-awareness and development, the interconnectedness of humans and life, the wisdom of patience and risk-taking, and bringing your intentions to the universe and inviting it to provide.  I hope you will find something here that will give you hope, inspiration, perspective and make you smile.
