Some of the wisest quotes and sayings are by authors we do not know. But that, of course, doesn’t make them any less valid or important. So in this post, I am sharing some of the great ones I have come across — to give these unknown voices another chance to inspire, motivate and encourage all those who read. And if by chance, you know the author of the quotes, by all means share it! Let’s finally give some credit to these wise words.

I love coming across quotes, and I read them all the time. At work, I provide a weekly inspirational quote to my coworkers, and it has become of my their favorite things I do.
