Be the Change: 10 Quotes That Will Inspire You To Make the World a Better Place


It's no secret by now that I love quotes.  I just love being inspired by things other people have said and I find it's amazing what happens in our hearts and minds when we read something that really resonates with us, or better yet, motivates us to change.  I once read that people want to read what their soul already knows to be true.  I agree, and when I was searching for quotes to use in this post, I deeply felt the truth of these ten.  

This world is not an easy place sometimes.  Most of the time, in fact.  But when we spend time tending to the needs of others, and not just our own, when we look for ways to be united with our fellow man rather than noticing only what separates us...that is when our soul is set ablaze and we find that even in difficult times, there is hope.

My prayer is that you will be as inspired by these quotes as I have been, that you will find joy in knowing that many others before us have begun a good work on this planet, and that you will find the courage to continue it.
