Inspirational Quotes

“Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined.” Toni Morrison


“So many people along the way, whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you that it can’t be done. But all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself, there are no limits.” Michael Phelps
