12 Great Motivational Quotes to Start of 2013

Geoffrey James of Inc. recently published this list of Motivational Quotes that he liked as a way to start off 2013 “galvanized into action.”  We recognized some of these quotes from motivational speakers and writers from the 1970’s. And one of them is from The Bible!  My favorite is the one by Zig Ziglar.  This shows that a good quote can stand the test of time.
