Embrace Those Quotes

We see quotes all day long. Often they are very inspirational bits of wisdom that cause us to think from a different perspective. The person being quoted has found success in their area of expertise and has shared this pearl of knowledge in hopes that others may find their own success. Does it work? Is the quote just a quick meme to generate some likes? Does it actually resonate within you? Does it cause you to think? Even better, does it cause you to act?

The quotes are out there. They are essentially public domain and are ripe for the taking. Only you can find the truth of the message and apply it to your own life.

Any truth, I maintain, is my own property. And I shall continue to heap quotations from Epicurus upon you, so that all persons who swear by the words of another, and put a value upon the speaker and not upon the thing spoken, may understand that the best ideas are common property. –Seneca Letter XII: On Old Age
