Inspirational Quotes

What is it about a quote that makes it so powerful? I personally enjoy a great quote and I have never really thought about why. However, I am thinking now as I create this list that it is because quotes are relatable concepts that offer perspectives similar to one’s thoughts, beliefs, and understandings. Quotes can build on ideas and emotions inside you. With that said here is a short list of inspirational quotes:

“The strongest people we know are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.” – Unknown

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own power you cannot be successful or happy.” – Norman Vincent Peale

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop and look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Nothing is impossible the word itself says, ‘”I’m possible.’” – Audrey Hepburn

“Your best stories will come from your struggles. The seeds of success are in your failures. Your praises will be birthed from your pains. Keep standing. I have never seen a storm last forever. Seasons change…” – Unknown

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” – Dr Seuss

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” – Lao Tzu

“Being happy is not the absence of problems in our life, it’s the ability to deal with them! We have to learn to appreciate the challenges we face for what they offer us! Much the caterpillar, we emerge on the other side of difficulties STRONGER, BETTER, and MORE BEAUTIFUL! Start by realizing that it’s never the size of the problem that is important but actually our perception of it, which WE have the ability to change.” – LeeAnne Locken

“Be who you are, only say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr Seuss

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
