Capture the Power of Hundreds of Inspirational Quotes

Why would anyone want to read a bunch of quotes?  Yikes.  Sounds like a Goody Two Shoes project.

On the contrary.  It is for the Power.  And the Magic.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, 
a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, 
or the smallest act of caring, 
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Dr. Leo Buscaglia

The power to turn a life around -- that's a lot to ask of an inspirational quote.  But it happens millions of times every day.

It's magic.

Inspiration reaches every corner of our lives.

What would the world be without jazz or a Brahms concerto?  without Renoir or Kandinsky?  without John F. Kennedy or Gandhi?  without Michelangelo or da Vinci?

I daresay we would be in a pretty sorry state.

So I am very pleased to share with you some of my favorite inspirational quotes.
