Quite often I observe, people posting Inspirational quotes on Facebook, Google+ and other social media sites. I find them really inspiring and motivating. Sometimes they appear just at the right moment, when you are really in need of that positive and friendly boost.

There are times when we are in a pensive mood. There are several moments of despair, unhappiness and irritation. Life is like that --While there are some favorable times; there can be not so favorable times as well.

One needs someone to provide emotional support to you. Few words of Inspiration to boost you up, to make you cheerful and face the facts of life.

Life is not a bed of Roses. Most of the times, things do not turn out as you may have planned them. In such a situation these encouraging words work as a catalyst and you are again ready to face the sweet-sour situations of life.

  14. The man who holds the ladder at the bottom is of more service than the man at the top.
  15. There is no defeat except from within---.
  16. Accept things with which, fate binds you. Love the people with whom fate brings you together. But do so with all your heart.

      Great hub?

      A beautifully thought of hub and such inspirations motivate me even more, my family and friends are my best choices including books. Nice to read anew hub from you.

      What a good collection to make. I have not heard of some of these but they were what I needed from a friend today. Thank you my friend:)

      This is a great list of quotes. My favorite from this list is "Good people are good because they have come to wisdom through facing failures in life." It's through understanding of a situation that we can help others in life through experience of our own.

      Well done sweet lady, inspirational indeed!

    • denise.w.anderson profile image

      Denise W Anderson 3 years ago from Bismarck, North Dakota

      My favorite is the one about being pleasant until 10:00 a.m. - the rest of the day will take care of itself! How true! So often we get upon the wrong side of the bed, and the rest of the day is shot. If we could just look in the mirror and smile at ourselves, and greet ourselves as if we were an honored guest in our own home, perhaps things would be different! (Do you mind if I quote you?)

      I too love inspirational and motivational quotes. You have brought together a wonderful collection here.

      I believe we all need encouragement at times whether it is dealing with a family problem, money issues or even positive thoughts to help us with our writing. Sometimes, as you say, the right quote comes at just the right time to keep us moving forward.
