Great Pick-me-up Inspirational Quotes

Updated on October 14, 2009

Everyone can use a little emotional pick-me-up every once in a while. Something that works for me is to either carry around little snippets of paper in my wallet, with notes to myself, notes containing something I've heard from someone else that just struck me, or a famous inspirational quote. Other times, I'll write these things on a post-it, and stick it on my computer or somewhere else that I'll see it often throughout the day.

It's not hard to find inspirational quotes, but you may have to read a few before you find one/some that strike a chord with you. Here are some of my favorites - hopefully, you'll find some you really like here.

Quotes on Being Yourself:

  • "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
    ~ Dr. Seuss
  • "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else."
    ~ Judy Garland
  • "If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise."
    ~ Johann von Goethe

  • " Success is best measured by how far you've come with the talents you've been given."
    ~ Anonymous
  • " Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm"
    ~ Winston Churchill
  • " Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor."
    ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Quotes on Goal-setting:

  • " Never tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon."
    ~ Unknown
  • " Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
    ~ T. S. Eliot
  • " If you aim at nothing, you'll hit it every time."
    ~ Unknown

Quotes on Not Giving Up:

  • " Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail."
    ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • " When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place."
    ~ Unknown

      Dance in the rain. Cherish the moment, ignore the pain. Live,love, laugh. Forgive and forget. Life is to short to live in regrets...
