Memorable Quotes

Some quotes are memorable. There was one such quote which I still remember till date which had a huge influence on my thought process. The essence was something like – “You are only responsible for whatever happens around you”. Initially I was glaring with disbelief. It took quite sometime for the wisdom in the quote to sink in me. But when it did, it changed my whole thought process and I am glad about it. So, I am presenting some quotes like that which was forwarded by a friend through email over the years. This time I have linked her blog. And yes, all the credit for searching these quotes and sending them to us go to her. But according to the above quote, I can also take credit for good things that happen around me 🙂
