---Jim MacKay --- Oregon
God bless you your web site is great!....I read at work and honestly I think I better stop reading at work
because people are going to start thinking that maybe I have problems at home or something because I always
finish reading them with my eyes full of tears!"
I recently stumbled on to your site by accident and was pleasantly surprised and unexpectedly uplifted
by what I saw. It's a nice break for a student labouring away on term papers and finals! I just wanted to
say thanks and let you know that you are making a positive contribution, and I salute you."
Thanks for the note and the great website. I've been pulling quotes off of
your site to share with my staff and others who might benefit from them.

I want to thank you for creating a site involving teens. I am 17 and I look
for answers and not many people can believe that some of us teens have a
thirst for wisdom. Thank you for realizing this and involving us with the
broadening of our minds."
I teach at a high school where I am also a guidance counselor and the student council advisor. Your site
has been a lifesaver for me! I have started putting the teacher motivational quotes in the teacher's lounge.
Student Council put copies of the poems and website address in the teacher's box for American Education
Week. I have given all of my Student Council representatives the address for this website. I also have been
able to share many of the inspirationals with students that I am counseling. Thanks for a wonderful

and relate to them."
---Jerome J., Age 17 --- California
I just finished reading, "Who I Am Makes A Big Difference" and it gave me
chills. As I sit here typing this email tears are flowing freely down my
face. We as parents need to remember how fragile, yet special our children
are. How many of our kids think they're not loved. Even though I try to show
mine I love them, I will be sure and tell them tonight. Thanks."
I've been a visitor to your site for almost a year now. You've done
an outstanding job, keep up the good

Your webpage is really great. I especially like the stories. Sometimes when I
find one I like, my sister (age 15) will use it at her fellowship club at
school, since she is like the leader of it. Often reading your stories
brightens my day."
---Dana, Age 13
I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your site! It has really helped me get through some hard times."
---Donna --- Illinois
I haven't been around for a while. I have been all caught up in life's
little troubles and forgot to slow down and smell the roses. I couldn't
sleep tonight thinking of all my worries and troubles, then I thought of
your wonderful web page and how I haven't seen it in a while. Well, guess
what! The first thing I read was "Why are things they way they are?" by
Lisa Burchett. It was BEAUTIFUL!! Oh I must have cried for 5 minutes! :o)
It really touched my heart. It was VERY beautifully written. BEAUTIFUL. If
you have her address or the address of the person who sent it, would you
please tell them how much I loved it? Thanks so much!
Thanks for your web page! You bring so many good things to so many people!"
---Lori H. --- Nevada
I love the site!!! I work at a Junior High and I have a motivational quips board outside my office,
but have begun exhausting new and inspirational sayings. then I found you - yahhh!!!
Thanks again for taking the time to inspire, motivate & brighten the
lives of others!! "
---Cindy O'Neill --- Newfoundland, Canada
I want to tell you what a difference reading from your site has made in my life. When I listen to the news or read the papers I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the sadness and afflictions of the world. Yes, unfortunately the world does have crime and poverty and hate, BUT your site has proven goodness and love prevails in the world. Thanks to all who share and keep the circle of love forever going round and round. A simple act of kindness ripples across oceans. "
Thank you very much for the wonderful message today. My wife and I are
starting our own business and even though we're plugging into a proven
system of success, it's still hard not to doubt our ever making it big.
We'll come here all the time, now. Keep us going! "
---Steve & Kelly Brown
I love your site and use it all the time to send uplifting quotes to friends."
---Sincerely, Rebecca Douthit --- California
I would just like to let you know how much I enjoy this site. It is so great! One day I was looking for poetry for English, and somehow I ran across your site! Just a few days ago I told my teachers and principals about it, and now everyone in the school enjoys it and looks forward to getting a little inspiration everyday."
---Crista W., Age 16 --- Michigan
Thank you for this page. When I started looking through all of the thoughts and words that are written on it I started to cry. I have
always known that I have great gifts that I will never understand, gifts that many others would kill for, but I have never used them.
The last two years of my college career had been just like every other year, mediocre and not living up to the expectations that others and myself had placed before me, until today.
The quotes that I read reached inside of me and touched me in a way that few things ever have. My father is a walking quote book, not meaning that he rattles off Shakespeare or Thoreau, but that from every thing he says, a little seed of wisdom
I thought of something that he once said to me that I hope can help someone that is maybe in the same position that I am, and can
help them to understand how their confusion and frustration can help them. He said - Sometimes it is more important to know what you don't want to do before you can know what you want to do."
---Zach B., --- Ohio
I wanted to thank you for your beautiful web site! I visit it almost daily and I apologize for never taking the time to tell you how much I appreciate it. Today my daughter is out of school sick, so I have slowed down long enough to drop you a note.
I work in an office with lots of pressure and stress. Everyday I send an office wide e-mail to my colleagues with a "thought of the day" to start their day off with a smile and a positive beginning. I look through your web site until one of the quotes jumps out at me, it's funny someone always comments to me "How did you know that's what I needed?" So, thank you for helping me helps others!"
I came across your web site, stopped and have not left it since I found it. It is great. I really enjoy the quotes...keep up the good
work! I e-mailed my son tonight in Colorado told him to get on and find it, he will love it. He likes these kind of inspirational things. Thank you for letting me be a part of your readers who enjoy good things!"
---Shirley --- Michigan
I pass along Motivation and Inspiration everyday to my clients and
friends. Your site is awesome and a virtual gold mine for fresh material!!
Thanks again for all of your hard work....it makes all the difference to many people that are looking for
inspiration and motivation."
---Larry Josephs --- Minnesota
I just wanted to tell you that your site was awesome and I love it. I was
looking for a motivational quote for an assignment in class and somehow I
got into your site and I didn't find just one cool quote, I found about ten
pages worth. Needless to say, I got an "A" on that project and I still
look at your site almost every day. I always seem to see something new
every time. Your stuff is so cool."
---Jennifer M.--- Age 15 --- Oklahoma
I have just spent over an hour enjoying your web site. Like many others I have been searching for an inspirational site when life tries
to get the better of me. Sometimes it is hard to stay focused and positive, but with help from everyone who adds to this site, I feel so much stronger inside. I can't wait to share some of the quotes with friends."
---Diana --- South Australia
Just a note to say thanks for your site....sometimes when one feels the
weight of the world on his shoulders, he looks for others words to
complete his thoughts. I received some strength from your page in an
hour of need. Thanks!!!"
---K.S. --- Alberta, Canada
I really enjoy your site , I especially like the teen page, it shows that there are lots of great young people out there. My mum is 40 next week and I borrowed one of your quotes to put on the card I made her, I know she will love it."
---Laura, Age 12 --- Australia
I just wanted to say thank you for these quotes and motivational stories. My
family and I have gone through a lot in the past weeks. I have found many
wonderful things on your site to send to my family for inspiration and comfort.
I know they have appreciated it and so have I."
Thank you for maintaining such a beneficial web site. I quite often visit you for inspiration and to copy a quote which I then share with about 220 people on my e-mail list. The highlight of my Monday (the day that I send out my quotes) is when I receive a response to a quote telling me how it has helped somebody at just the right time. I will continue to visit you and wish you all the best!"
Just discovered your site by chance. Absolutely Awesome! Thank You!"
---Pete Joyner --- Georgia
I have been looking at motivateus site for a long time, and just wanted to tell you that I think it is an awesome site. The
writing that is on there is incredible and I really love it. I have many of the things printed out and on my wall or in my quote book."
Yesterday, I went on the Internet and typed in quotes to be searched. It came up with a list of over a thousand, so I started searching and eventually came to yours. In general, I love quotes, but this time I was looking for special ones for my cousin who is graduating this year and I'm making a scrapbook for her! Your web-site is awesome and I would like to congratulate you and your staff for having such awesome things on the web."

and inspiring website. I absolutely love it!"

I stumbled onto your website just a week ago and I would like to thank you for the compiled motivating articles you have. I constantly use them as an example in the training programs I conduct. I find your selection of the articles very tasteful and keeping with the
"motivational" ambiance. Again, I would like to congratulate you on a most interesting and "motivating"
website. More power to you and God Bless."

Thanks for taking the time to read my quotes and
making such a great website! It really does help a lot. I printed out a
bunch of them and I bring them to swim meets with me. They really help me to
get focused on my race and a lot of times, during a hard and long race when I
want to give up, I just think of a certain quote and it makes me keep going.
I just wanted to share with you how useful these quotes can be and to say
thanks again for this great website! Keep up the great work!!!!"

I really love your web site. I read (and re-read) the things you

am just feeling down and need a lift for my spirits. Many of the quotes

for motivational sayings and quotes I go to, because it is the best."

I am a high school guidance counselor in Georgia and I often print the quotes

---Luke Dart --- Northern Territory, Australia
Thank you again, your web site is amazing. I have a book in which I continue to add quotes, almost everyday. So that when I am feeling in the dumps I can read some quotes and end up feeling much better about myself and the world around me. I one day hope to pass this book (may become more than one in time) to my child. Your web page is helping me to do that."

of these quotes feel like they are related directly to my life! I would just like to congratulate you on your fantastic idea for this site as I hope it helps many other teenagers find direction as well!"
---Brooke Ferguson --- Australia
I am a primary school teacher. I try really hard to be the nicest,
caring teacher I can. I would rather be remembered by my students for
being a great person rather than an excellent math teacher. Every day I
write a motivational quote on the board, I don't know if the students
really understand their meaning, but I am sure that one day when they
are older they will remember these quotes and hopefully they will
inspire and change their lives. I am big fan of motivational quotes,
they grab my heart and make me feel good. Anyway I
really love your page and I really appreciate your good work. I really
love the sayings "Pain is Temporary, but Glory is forever", and "No
person is a failure, if a person has friends" (Its a Wonderful life).
Inspire while you are here."
---Mark --- Australia
Thank you for posting such great sayings. I am so heartened that our
children are so positive. You all are like water in a desert. I am so
refreshed when I call up the site and read such pleasant sayings. Thank
I really enjoy your site, it has so many good quotes. It has really helped me through this hard time; my best friend died last month and it as really been tough. Your site has helped heal me greatly."
---Ryan Anthony Breaux
What a wonderful web site you have. I've gotten some wonderful quotes to
share with other people. Thank you very much."
---Shelly Edson --- Vermont
Thank you, thank you! I just bought WebTV. I'm 63 yrs young and ready to retire. One of the first
things I researched was quotes and there you were. How lucky can one get?"
I heard about your site at a leadership training camp I attended with
my students last week. What a rich resource for classroom quotes!
Thank you for providing it!"
---Janet Shelley --- Florida
I wanted to write to firstly thank you for the wonderful inspiration and
motivation which I derive from your site. I have always had an immense
interest in quotes and your site brings out many of my favorites and helps
me see many more which correspondingly I believe has had a positive impact
on my life."
I've visited your page HELPING THROUGH THE GRIEF for the first time two days
ago. Since then I have returned there every night...looking through the
stories and quotes sent in by so many people. It is amazing the comfort I
find in the words of other people trying to cope with a lost loved one...
I've been crying constantly for two days now. I cry for my own grief and the
grief of other people. I'm from South Africa but we moved to Colorado, 3
months ago. I left so many things behind...My dog, my horse, my friends,
But I guess the things I miss the most is the things that can never be
replaced. I miss my grannies and grandpa. They've all passed away. I miss 2
friends who have died in car accidents...I miss another friend who killed
himself 4 months ago.
My boyfriend's brother was killed in a car accident. Tomorrow it will be
exactly a year ago he died...Like I've said I've been crying these last 2
days...I feel the pain of my boyfriend and my own pain...sometimes it feels
too much...What is the worst is to see the pain in his eyes. When he talks
about his brother (17) he always smiles so fondly and then when he talks
about the accident his smile's replaced my a sad frown and pain in his
eyes...he has his brother's eyes and smile :)
Life is hard yes...but it is pages like yours that show us the silver
lining of the clouds. Thanks so much for all the inspirational and motivating
---Mariaan E., Age 17 --- Colorado
Your site is the best. Always makes me want to hop up and run like
Forrest Gump. Run and run and run.....Thanks, Great Help."

This website has offered me so much spiritual guidance and
spiritual growth for some time now, and I greatly appreciate its presence."
---Amy Santini --- Kentucky
I heard about this site from a former Oklahoma FHA/HERO state officer
when I became the new state president. This site has so many different
quotes and stories--an assortment that other quote sites can't offer."
---Anna Clovis --- Oklahoma
Just a quick note to let you know that your hard work is appreciated. I
am a mother of four, trying to keep a Christian family together in an
increasingly Godless world. I have been finding it more difficult now
that the boys are teenagers. I will share the quotes and stories found
here with my family and workmates."
Thank you and go with God,

I can not put in to words how much I love your web page. The inspiration

I am a sentimental person and I found that this was the site I've been
looking for all my life."
---Alisha Sarabjeeth --- South Africa
I think in this crazy world we live in, too many times thanks go left unsaid. Thank you for creating and maintaining a site where spiritual
and inspirational thoughts are not shunned. I find myself going back to this site frequently just to have a smile cross my face and
sometimes a tear run down my cheek. Thank you again, there aren't many people willing to take a risk and go against the grain."
---Brady --- Utah
I am a frequent visitor of your
motivational site. I have long been wondering what I
can contribute to a world of teens seeking
inspirations so I am sending you a quote that really helped me. Here's a little background:
After being in a relationship for a little more than a
month, I had found myself head over heels for the
other. One day at the end of a phone conversation, I
was getting ready to hang up, and he goes, "I have
three words for you" My heart jumped! And as I
listened, they were not the three words I had longed
to hear, but maybe three words I needed to hear even
more. "Love is patient." I promise, through that
any relationship, or trying time with another, these
three words will help you through.
Please, continue the great work on the motivational
site. Your attitude about teens (teens are terrific)
is a rare one, and needs to be passed on."
---Chyla D., Age 15 --- Wisconsin
Discovering your site made my day today. And I have added many beautiful
and life-giving moments to my 'Quotes' file. Keep doing the good work.
Today I spent 2 hours on your site and I know I am going to
spend many more regularly."
---Sandhya --- India
Hi, I just wandered into your site yesterday, and have found it the best
place so far for motivation, inspiration and success quotes. I love the
teen quote pages.

---Richard Swanson --- New Zealand
Thank you for doing what you do. It sure makes you feel better to read these

---Lindsey, Age 16 --- South Carolina
The whole 'feel' of this place is uplifting! As I came across one golden
nugget after another, I kept thinking of different people I know who would
benefit greatly from the wise words on this site and I can't wait to send
them your URL. You are an inspiration to the soul, an incredible balm to the
heart, and a soft caress to the worried mind!
After spending a great deal of time being inspired and uplifted by your
incredible web site, I am proud to present the WiseHearts Wisdom Award to
Motivating Moments. I created this award some time ago, but to date, have
never given it out. I started to think I had set the standard too high, but
I was wrong. By actively advocating participation from your visitors, you
have drawn wisdom from the four corners of the earth, and you showcase it
