Who doesn’t love an inspirational quote?

Motivational posters covered all my classroom walls in middle school, and for a good reason: great quotes truly hold meaning that can help you turn your day — and yes, even your life — around. One intelligent quote can give you purpose and drive, and you may keep its message with you for life.

Well as it turns out, sometimes you might just be surprised at the name behind the words.
