We all have favorite moments in history. Whether it is a world leader making an historic speech, an individual showing courage in the face of adversity, a random act of kindness or a world-changing event, they all etch unforgettable memories in our minds.
I thought it would be a great start to 2015, to list my 5 favorite quotes from people who I admire and who have changed who I am as a person today.
