As per Google, the definition of Quote is pretty simple it says – repeat or copy out (words from a text or speech written or spoken by another person) . So simple right?? But aren’t these simple words by some random person leave a huge impact on our lives simply because it contains a wealth of wisdom in a single line.

Read my post on  – How do QUOTES help us???

And there are handful of such simple lines that have kept me going whenever i fell, lost track, lost hope, felt cheated, troubled and crippled in the head. These words changed me as a person, the way i think and even they way i feel for that matter.

I owe a lot to the people who have inspired millions of us from their life experiences, help us give words to how we feel .
