Entrepreneur Business woman of the year (1988)

“Our achievements are the things we have accomplished – our fruitfulness is the positive long-term effects of these achievements on others” - H Nouwen

On my 12th birthday I received a special present. A small autograph book in which my friends wished me well while others wrote quotes that inspired me. That was the beginning of a lifelong collection of inspirational thoughts. After many years of reading books and thousands of quotes and stories. I gathered only those that touched my life. The wisdom of masters withstood the test of time. It’s true and universally applicable.

From my collection then, I want to share with you, to apply, teach and inspire others.

“If you have grown because of someone, help someone grow because of you” - Orina

Most of the quotes mentioned are by well-known authors. Therefore, not my own. Through this gesture I would like to give them the recognition which they deserve.


If you need inspiration on any specific topic, feel free to contact me.

With love, Koekie
