    I love inspirational quotes, thank you for sharing your list. My favorite ones in your list are # 9 by Thomas Edison which reminds us that we have astounding potential and capabilities and # 44 by Eleanor Roosevelt which reminds us that it is in our own power how we interpret other people words and actions. “No one can make you feel inferior….”. In order to not take personally other people unkind words and actions, we need to stand firmly in self-love, in that note I would like to share this love yourself quotes
