There is so much pressure in life to be great, do great things, don’t screw up, make a difference, don’t be too different – so much that we often lose sight of some simple, yet powerful truths about life.  I have collected 20 powerful quotes on life, and I use them in my life to stay grounded to what’s important to me.  I hope they (and other great quotes out there) can do the same for you.
