Hello World!

This is my first blog on Catalyst Quotes and I am excited about joining all the other bloggers! 

It is said that you can tell much about a person by the company he keeps.  At times, the companions or company that I keep are the quotations or stories that you’ll see on this blog.  They help me ponder and meditate on what is going on in my life or at work and they also help me steer myself in the right direction.  At my previous jobs as an HR Manager, I sent out many of the quotes you’ll see to the management teams where I worked at but then word spread and others were asking to be on the mailing list and not just managers. 

My intent with this site is to provide you with a variety of motivational and/or thought-provoking quotes or stories that you can use at your work or in your daily life.  As Montaigne said, “I quote others only in order the better to express myself.”  I “use” others quotes to get a message across.  You may get it at times; sometimes, you may need to read it over.  Some of the quotes’ authors are famous; some are not.  Instead of looking at who said it, reflect on the words being said although the quote is more significant because of who the author is.  

I hope these quotes or stories (companions) will tug at your heart, feed your conscience and soothe your soul. I know they have done that for me.

Have a terrific day!
