  8. These are just amazing quotes! I’m sure that people will be getting so many inspirations from them. My friend is in a health program right now, and I think I should be getting one or two from these quotations and send it to her. That would probably encourage her to live a healthier life, I guess! Good luck to those people who are just like my friend.   :)
