    The Power of Moments – “If you knew you could make a positive difference in someone’s life – that you could create a memory for them that would last for years – and it would take only a trivial amount of time on your part, would you do it?” page 158

Several of us mentioned how we highlighted more and took more notes from this book than we have from any other that we have read.
