 Mantra, A mantra:

Is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of ;creating spiritual transformation. Its use and type varies according to the school and philosophy associated with the mantra. – Wikipedia

Over the years  we’ve come across some great sources of practical wisdom that have inspired and encouraged us in the work we do.

We call them our Mantras.

This is more than just another  web collection of  famous quotes we believe wisdom should be practical not just profound.

These are guides to live and work by and we are committed to meditating and thinking about how to apply them more effectively in everyday life.

You’ll find them dotted throughout the site. Or you can browse them at your leisure here.

We convince by our presence.
-Walt Whitman

We hope they will inspire you to.
