Awesome Quotes: my ultimate list! 

Over the years I have collected awesome quotes from several sources. But the list grew so long I decided to bring them together in this ever growing list of great quotes.

If you have a good quote to share, reach out via Twitter or LinkedIn and you might see it here on the next update.

You will find 475+ awesome quotes in this guide, short movies and infographics. To make it easier to search, I divided the quotes into 12 categories: (1) Great quotes about change, (2) Awesome Strategy Quotes, (3) strategy execution quotes, (4) Leadership Quotes, (5) Coaching Quotes, (6) Success Quotes, (7) short quotes, (8) quotes on innovation, (9) Quotes on Goals, (10) Motivational Quotes, (11) Determination Quotes, and finally (12) Stress relief quotes

Just click on any quotes category you like to discover.
