10 Inspiring Quotes + A visit to Madame Tussauds

Last Christmas, I visited Madame Tussauds as an adult (I was more fascinated by this attraction as a kid). Madame Tussauds is a wax museum with figures of artists, famous personalities and country leaders. Recently, I was scrolling through my photo library and came across these pictures I took back then. I thought of how inspirational and successful these people have been in their chosen fields and have decided to share a few quotes from these stars. I hope you become as inspired as I am by these quotes.
