Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

    These are wonderful, and thank you! As I read, however, I was very disappointed to read that of all those quoted, only ONE was from a woman. You are leaving behind a very powerful group of people with powerful inspiration and voices, if you have but the ears to hear them and the motivation to find them. Maya Angelou, Marianne Williamson, Mother Teressa and so many others… Discover and enjoy!

    I love that quote from Michael Jordan. I used to have it on my fridge for my boys. I want them to realize that life is full of ups and downs, but success is about persistence – just keep doing the right things and eventually results will follow.
