Inspirational Quotes Part One

Updated on February 25, 2015

We all have those days were we feel unproductive and totally lazy to do stuffs. Because of this, we feel down, and lost. So what can we do when these irritating feelings starts creeping out of our lives? Look for something that inspires us!

My way of untangling myself from this "down period" is by reading inspirational or motivational quotes. I find that reading them helps me boost up my energy to keep me going. I just need to find the right quotes on different kinds of situation. Since I am a self-taught artist, I usually experience an artist's block. Therefore, the quotes that I need to start reading and put to heart are those that will help me bring out my enthusiasm in art.

To get you started, let me share some of the quotes that helped me a lot especially when I'm experiencing hard times in life.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit ~ Aristotle

Work spares us from three evils: boredom, vice and need. ~ Voltaire

My Mama always said you've got to put the past behind you before you can move on ~ Forrest Gump (from the movie Forrest Gump)

It is never too late to be what you might have been. ~ George Eliot

Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it ~ Rafiki, from the Lion King

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game ~ A Cinderella Story

The brave do not live forever but the cautious do not live at all ~ The Princess Diairies

Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you. ~ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Fear cuts deeper than swords. ~ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

I hope some of the quotes listed above gave you motivation on your goals! These quotes are just a few of my favorite ones. You can also look out for motivational and inspirational quotes in any form. Whether it's written on the side of a bus, or something you heard from a movie, or something you saw from a commercial or billboards. These quotes are like reminders and when you seriously put those words into heart, you can never go wrong.
