Confidence Quotes

Confidence is that quality that makes a person stand above all failures and brickbats thrown at him/her. Confidence is the fuel, which propels one to move in the chosen direction, even when the tide is against them. However, confidence should not be mistaken with arrogance, which is nothing but unmerited confidence. In any endeavor, confidence is a must so that demotivation and criticism does not hinder your success. If you are at an all time low then read these confidence quotes to raise your spirits.
