Motivational Quotes - Best Motivational Quotes

Updated on August 1, 2014

I am the type of person that has little quotes posted in different places in my house. I have a few on my refrigerator and others near my computer to look at when i'm writing to remind me of why I do what I do. Sometimes I need a little reminder of why I do what I do everyday, and that reminder may simply be just a quick glance at one of my favorite quotes and I feel renewed.

Some people may be feeling defeated and down on their luck. Maybe you have been striving towards a goal that seems like you will never reach or maybe everyone has turned their back on you and you are the only one that believes in you. You may have lost someone or something special to you and you need a reason to keep going. Whatever your need is...I hope that some of these quotes can inspire you to keep going and to not give up. I know that a few of them have helped me on a daily basis.
