Mid-Year Inspirational Quotes

I love quotes.  If you’ve followed my blog for very long, you know that I like to insert a quote post now and again.  Since it’s mid-year, a little inspiration felt appropriate.  After all, we are all chasing dreams!

Mid-Year Inspirational Quotes

Don Yaeger is a friend of mine who writes for Forbes Magazine and Forbes.com.  He is also a nine-time New York Times Best Selling author. He recently wrote an article for Forbes.com that included 45 of his favorite inspirational quotes.  He primarily writes on sports and sports-related topics so many of these quotes are derived from that genre; however, they are inspiring nonetheless.  I chose my seventeen favorite quotes and listed them below for your inspiration and enjoyment.
