Luckily for me, I can find my inner strength and courage from some classy lady quotes that I have posted on my walls and on strategic places in my room.  Reading these quotes makes me feel motivated and inspired to face life head on. I don’t have to call my family and friends all the time to ask for their advice because it’s as if wise and famous people are already speaking to me, giving me strength and courage.  So just by reading these quotes, I’m somewhat empowered to do the things that I have and must do. strength and courage
