Changemakrs – Stay Inspired


What was that motivational line you recently read in a Robert Frost poem? If you’re like most people, you probably read or hear – and then promptly forget – inspirational quotes every day. Changemakrs is a web-application that aims to help people commit their favorite quotes to memory, by providing a way to save, share, and discover lines from poems, books, and other moving texts.

Log-in through Facebook to create a Changemakrs account. Scroll through some of the world’s most moving quotes, and “collect” any that feel particularly inspiring or motivational. All the quotes you collect are added to your “collection,” just like the photos you collect on Pinterest are added to your “boards.” Manually type in any quotes you’d like to add to the Changemakrs database, and upload a large-scale background photo to reflect the message of your collected quotes. You can also discover new quotes by browsing through the Changemakrs database or searching for quotes by keyword.

In addition to “collecting” your favorite quotes and passages, you can also “love” the quotes other users have added, and share your favorites with friends on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. When it comes to saving moving messages and inspirational quotes, it would tough to find an application more devoted to this singular goal than Changemakrs.
