The Quotes Collective 2.0

Injila Rasul, Contributor

The Quotes Collective 2.0 is a continuation of effort to bring together ideas, art and thoughts – an effort to find meaning in the enormity of what life has to offer. Here’s to appreciating the smaller and bigger things in life, all at the same time, stemming from the most creative of all sources; the human mind. Wander away as you explore how different individuals have found a unique way of expression.
