Change Quotes -

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

This is my favorite quote from Gandhi. It’s a quote that still resonates today, maybe even more than before.

The best way to change the world is to start with ourselves. In my opinion, that’s the starting point. While we sure can influence others, to really change someone, they have to have that spark inside them already.

Pick a few of your favorite change quotes and light a spark of change in someone.
