A spark of inspiration. A pat on the back. We all need that. Whenever I’m stuck, lost, dejected, aimless or riding through the crease of emotions, intelligent words from wise people never failed to stabilise the waves. They have influenced me so much and will continue to be the lighthouse as I carve my way into the unknown. These are memorable words spoken by people I inspire to be. In many ways, these are my quotes.
