Here are some of my favorite inspirational quotes about life ♡

“I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.” 

 

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.” 

“The trouble is if you don’t spend your life yourself, other people spend it for you.” 

 

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” 

 

“We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don’t even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It’s time to put an end to this. It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.” 

 

“No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.” 

 

“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.” 

 

“People tend to complicate their own lives, as if living weren’t already complicated enough.” 

 

“We are addicted to our thoughts. We cannot change anything if we cannot change our thinking.” 

 

“This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.” 

 

“There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.” 

 

“[H]iding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy doesn’t make you nice, it just makes you a liar.” 

 

“Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.”

 

“First, let no one rule your mind or body. Take special care that your thoughts remain unfettered… . Give men your ear, but not your heart. Show respect for those in power, but don’t follow them blindly. Judge with logic and reason, but comment not. Consider none your superior whatever their rank or station in life. Treat all fairly, or they will seek revenge. Be careful with your money. Hold fast to your beliefs and others will listen.” 

 

“In everybody’s life there’s a point of no return. And in a very few cases, a point where you can’t go forward anymore. And when we reach that point, all we can do is quietly accept the fact. That’s how we survive.” 

 

“Just know, when you truly want success, you’ll never give up on it. No matter how bad the situation may get.”

 

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”

 

“Its hard to wait around for something you know might never happen; but its harder to give up when you know its everything you want.”
