What really matters in life? The relationships, goals and passions that really deserve our most precious resource of all, energy?

Often with all the mundane to-do’s in life, it can be hard to keep what really matters in mind.

That is why I admire quotes like these below. Quotes are like little nudges in the side that keep us focused on what really matters. And you can quote that. :)

As a collector of great quotes, I like to publish some of the best ones I have found from time to time in the Intense Experiences newsletter. By "best" I mean those that capture what seems to be some profound insight for truly being happier, such as these exceptional ones below. I encourage you to copy your favorites and locate them where you'll be nudged in the side with their message.

I am also inviting you to subscribe to the no-cost IntenseExperiences.com newsletter where you can then use the Contact Us button to email me YOUR favorite quote or two. I will republish them in future editions of the newsletter so watch for yours!
