Inspirational quotes

  • “When you decide to do something you believe to be right, don’t let others stop you, even if a majority of people disapprove of it. If it is a wrong thing to do, you should not do it in the first place. But if it is the right thing, then why care about what others think?” —Epictetus, Enchiridion
