Quotes are used everywhere. Billboards, bumper stickers, fortune cookies, you name it! They can inspire you, make you think, or make you laugh. Some people keep their favorite quotes or scripture verses on mirrors, cars or desks where they can have a daily reminder. Here is one of my favorite quotes: "You must be the change you want to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandhi
I like this quote because it speaks to the fact that if we want to see something change outside of us, then we need to first start that process inside of ourselves. I love being in conversations with someone where they've modeled this very concept, showing me that if they believe in a cause, they decide to make changes in their own life first. Despite how large something outside of us seems, we can make some impact.
