The Power of the underdog 9 mins read It is always better to shock people
– “Everything you want is on the other side of fear”
O ver a couple of years now, I have collected an amazing amount of everyday quote
gleaned from almost everywhere. Many of the quotes come from the books I read, from social media post or other everyday mentions. I have also religiously shared a carefully selected quote every morning with a group of old school friends for many months now. I try not to miss a week day, but sometimes getting a thumbs-up is all it takes to fetch another quote worthy of sharing.
Sometimes I wonder if I do not even need these inspiring quotes a lot more than those I share them with. They are not just a mere collection of fine words to gloss over while taking a morning dump, but the trueness/correctness of the phrases or sentences will reinvigorate you to pursue your passions and chase your dreams even when you are at your lowest ebb.
I am convinced that having these quotes in one post will make it easy to reference every now and then.
