My favorite quote would have to be, "Being in the right place is a matter of being in your right place." It's a good reminder not to measure your success or standing against other people, because everyone has different markers of what is right for them.

"There are some beautiful people in this world who do beautiful things for others, even though they may suffer greatly because they don't conform to the norm."
Love this quote! And how true, right? Who doesn't know someone (and kudos to you if you are that someone!) that will go absolutely above and beyond to do something beautiful for others, even though the 'others' may never recognize it.

My favorite quote from this book is, 'If you ponder but don't take action, your dreams remain dreams.Take action and your dreams can take flight.' I literally LOVE this quote and everything about it. It's been one of my favorites for a while now and when I read it in the book I instantly knew, I'm finishing this!!

My favorite quote was "We all possess the power of compassion..." Although it is incredibly simple, I absolutely believe it. No matter who you are--rich, poor, successful, struggling, etc.--you have the ability to show compassion. If everyone just showed a bit of compassion, we might truly change the world.
I was scrolling through the replies to see if someone has quoted this and found this post. I liked this quote too because it is 'simple but effective'. A few words but they have deeper meaning and that is why I liked it.

My favourite quote was “In our town, few people reached ‘escape velocity’ and broke free of the gravitational forces holding them in place.” This shows that only several individuals had the courage to progress in terms of socio-economic status which is shown in today's society; that explains the strain on the economy. Also the analogy was indeed creative.

It is hard to choose a favorite but I really liked "Look where you want to go in life, not at where you don't want to go..." page 126. I tend to spend a lot of time thinking about what I do not want to do in life and the reasons why. I need to spend less time dwelling on the negative and more time pursuing my dreams.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

Among my favourite quotes is "daydreaming is part of future planning". Because all great achievements start with a vision.

This is what impressed me too. Even the branded ''monsters'' weren't always that way.

I like the quote, "Stop ordinary thoughts from reigning in your mind and extraordinary thinking can begin". I like it because it puts the concept at the forfont of the truth about your thoughts, that it is A DAILY STRUGGLE. Every second our minds can choose positive or negative thoughts and every second we have the choice to decide which one is going to improve our lives and make us happy, or destroy our thinking and make us miserable.

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
I think this is deep - Identity. I sometimes wonder if age has to do with it. When you grow older, become more independent, you can afford to be who you want to be regardless whether others accept who you are.
