    Awesome list of quotes for entrepreneurs, thanks. I think many if not all of these inspiring quotes are also great openers for people writing articles on entrepreneurship – pick a quote and think up an article that goes with it, as well as as an opener for when people post links on Facebook or Twitter or elsewhere – posting just a link is boring and cold – so jazz it up a bit with a quote first.

    Awesome list of quotes for entrepreneurs, thanks. I think many if not all of these inspiring quotes are also great openers for people writing articles on entrepreneurship – pick a quote and think up an article that goes with it, as well as as an opener for when people post links on Facebook or Twitter or elsewhere – posting just a link is boring and cold – so jazz it up a bit with a quote first.
