This book is full of inspirational quotes. My favorite probably is "being in the right place is a matter of being in your right place"
It makes you want to find your right place in the world

The moment one definitively commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. Goethe
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

Your right! The right place will level up our interest and we will enjoy doing it. When you love the things you do in the right way will give you success. In today's generation, There are plenty of right places but people are not enjoying it.
When everything seems too late, but it's not. God is there! Just keep on believing Jesus.

It is the first book I have read here and I actually love it! I also like the encounter between Mr. White and Margaret, such a cute one.

My favorite quote might be "A happy, successful life comes with the right thoughts and the right feelings. " :)

The entire book was inspirational. To pick one quote is a real ask. The quote I would choose is "if it is to be, it is up to me". I choose this line because it gives me the motivation to work towards me dreams not being hindered by external factors, knowing that I alone hold the "yam and the knife' (african proverb).

I love your idea. When we like what we did we will push ourselves to achieve it. Once, We achieve it then we are satisfied and successful. Thanks to your idea. :tiphat:

There were so many quotes in the book and all happen to be my favourite, but if am to choose one, then i'd settle on
'If you ponder but don't take action, your dreams remain dreams.Take action and your dreams can take flight'
I find this one has meaning too!

I agree with you. Without action is dead. Dreams remains dreams without doing something in order to achieve. Nice observation.

I wrote down all the quotes I liked, but I think my favorite was this one:
"Your happiness, your success, your unique self-expression and your feeling of inner satisfaction all begin with you!"

I got quite excited when I read this line from the book And Then I Met Margaret. This is kinda important to me. It reminds me of someone who happens to say the same idea long ago in my college days. I very loved this line because it suggests striking importance in dealing our greatest aspirations in life.

Absolutely loved the book! Had so many great quotes but the one that spoke to me the most was :

“Look within--that’s where the trapping begins.”

It spoke to me on a personal level...i'm always being overly critical of myself and overthinking things. We are often our own worst enemies, this quote brings that idea home.

There were so many quotes in this inspirational book that I loved. And scrolling through here has made me think of even more that I hadn't noticed. But my favourite it probably "I believe luck isn't something that happens to me; luck is something that happens through me"

A free man is free because at some point in his life he's willing to stop hiding and be himself. This is definitely my favourite quote drawn from my favourite subject Identity
