102 Motivational Quotes By Peter G. James Sinclair

Do you like this story?

When I first started writing my Motivational Memos many years ago, it wasn’t long before people started quoting me. I have actually only ever seen my quotes as Motivational Memos rather than Motivational Quotes – but the word quotes seems to be the word that defines what I call a memo – a short and to the point statement that you can take with you wherever you go to add value to your life.

So enjoy them. Share them. Print them. Write them in your journal. I have heard many quotes throughout the years, and so here you have what I would call my  ‘original’ quotes that have been birthed through the reading of hundreds upon hundreds of books and the writing of thousands upon thousands of words since I first wrote my very first Motivational Memo. But I do understand that there is nothing entirely original under the sun.

Enjoy!
