“I quote others only to better express myself.”

“I quote others only to better express myself.”

– Michel de Montaigne, essayist and founder of modern skepticism

I have been writing The Quotable Coach series for over a year. A critical reason why I am (and perhaps you are) attracted to these insights and pearls of wisdom are thoughts such as:

  • I never saw it that way before.”
  • “That’s an interesting perspective.”
  • “Wow, that’s deep.”
  • And my favorite: “I wish I’d said that!”

The Quotable Coach format has helped me dig a bit deeper each day into my own voice and perspectives on a wide array of subjects as I look to better navigate my own life and assist others.


Visit the archives of The Quotable Coach series and select a small number of quotes that best express your own beliefs.

Consider creating a small display of these in your own world to enhance the expression of these messages in your day to day activities and relationships.
