The expression “The pen is mightier than the sword” (Edward George Bulwer-Lytton) is well-known, and for centuries humans have used their pens eff ectively to embrace the most powerful force available to them in the form of words.

There are some that use words to wreak havoc and destruction, inflict pain and despair, hurt and humiliate; then there are those that have been moved to use the energy and power of words to help, heal, inspire, motivate, and empower people throughout the history of mankind.

The quotes outlined in Empowered are thought-provoking, impacting, wise, and often witty. Not to be underestimated are the images included in the text. They relate to their respective quotes and are themselves fitting objects for exploration, inspiration, and humour. From the boardroom to the classroom, these quotes are ripe for discussion and a fun way to stimulate the brain cells as we explore the broad philosophical thinking behind each statement.

For those who seek inspiration and motivation in their professional or personal life, or who may want to rediscover their passion and purpose, this book will undoubtedly make a great gift that stimulates critical and creative thinking.

Though you see others jumping on two legs, it's ok to jump on one!

No matter how vast

the darkness is,

the tiniest of lights can penetrate it.

We can dress up as

much as we want;

people are only interested

in our spirit for once it leaves, they get rid of our body.

It's better to run with winners and lose

than to run with losers and win.

Silence is not golden where injustice reigns

If we don't till our soil it will give  rise to weeds

One person sees a hole; another sees an opening.

Love is like a baton; it's made for passing!

Look behind you

and reach out;

the hand you take may be your very own.

You can never enter the space of

an eagle

if you sustain the mind of a chicken

Trees bear fruit, fruits have seeds, seeds hold trees.

Everyone, indeed every thing has something to offer in the cycle of life.

The fact that you can fit in doesn't mean you will fit in;

choose your space carefully.
