TED Talks shares a few motivational presentations to get you take on your goals. Enjoy!
After listening to my friend’s amazing Buddhist stories from her trip to Thailand last week and then writing my Qwotwitters2 page yesterday, I want to take some time to write some more quotes but ones said by Buddha. It’s a great way to start your Monday, right?
The following Buddha quotes are from brainyquote.com
