Empowering Quotes

No one has the power to empower anybody. But some quotes can help. Take a look at some quotes which will inspire and motivate you.
Sometimes in life when we are absolutely blank and cannot find any solution ourselves, we wish that we had somebody to turn to, someone who would understand our state of mind.
