Energize Your Self By "Motivational and Inspirational Quotes"

Updated on April 18, 2011

Have you ever felt down? I think everybody does. When I felt like that it was hard to pick up my emotions. I used to bring that bad feeling back and try to force it away all night long but nothing good came from it. I asked myself "why did I waste my time with something that I could not make it better". My energy was gone by thinking too much about the bad feeling. I realized that I should spend my time with good activities instead of spending my precious time thinking with the bad things. So, I grabbed my "How to” and “self help" books beside my bed and started to read. You know? I could not believe it; some quotes in these books made me feel so much better and inspired me to move on.

Here are my favorite quotes that I would like to share with you. I love them and I wish they can help you to escape from your bad feeling and give you some positive energy.
