10 quotes for TCKs and global citizens

TCK quotes

Raising little cross-cultural kids of my own has been a life-changing experience. I love to read about others' experiences and find comfort in seeing how many of us share the same feelings whether we have lived in 2 or 15 different countries, whether we moved for jobs, love or political reasons.
I have collated a few of my favourite quotes that remind me I am not alone on this journey.
