Famous Quotes

  The famous quotes that I have listed are some of my personal favorites.  I have chosen them for their proven ability to inspire.  They are not your average quotes that are meant to simply entertain.  These quotes are specifically selected from successful people that are sharing their insight into what it takes to be successful.  You will find words like faith, persistence, preparation, enthusiasm, courage and determination used many times.  They are in fact motivational quotes.  I guarantee you will not have to read more than a couple pages of these quotes to become charged up and ready to take on the day.   If you have a motivational quote that you would like to see posted, please send it to me.  I will gladly try to include it in the list to share with others.

If you are looking for another type of quote or the ability to search for quotes by subject or author, then I suggest our links page located at the bottom of each page.  I have reviewed and picked what I believe to be the best quote websites and have written a brief introduction about what each site covers. 

Read and enjoy!
