Sometimes I come across quotes from people that sum up in a sentence what it takes a paragraph for me to say. You’ll find a lot of my posts have quotes in them; to me they’re little morsels of wisdom packed into a tiny, easily digestible package. This is the Inspirational Quotes Page where my favorites of those perfectly summed up thoughts are collected.

There are no grand celebrations here, no speeches, no bright lights,
But there are great athletes.
Somehow we’ve come to believe that greatness is reserved for the chosen few,
For the superstars.

It’s about raising them for every last one of us,
Because greatness is not in one special place,
It is not in one special person,
Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it.
