Quotes from 7 habits of highly effective people
I have always admired this book,
And as it has made some extremely good points,
That after applying in life made a huge difference.
I loved the way the author illustrated everything,
As it felt like an experience of sitting in a seminar with the author himself,
I read this book twice already,
And I thought putting quotes here would enable me to read whenever I want.
Also sharing what I liked the most.
