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.

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.
