thirty quotes.

lately, because of this lull i am going through, i have been into reading quotes about life, fulfillment and growth. i really enjoy hearing different views from people who have gone through hardships – and have consequently come out happier and wiser. so after a couple days of research and compilation, here are thirty of my favorite inspirational quotes. what are some of yours?

  1. Some of the people who said these quotes surprised me. Steve Jobs? Really? But then that would explain a whole lot and the success of Apple.

    I liked that you had Winnie the Pooh and The Lion King in here. Too cute.

    Also, I love the dynamic between literature writers and political shakers with these quotes. I feel like those people tend to know life the best.

  2. Loving a lot of these…will definitely be stealing some for statues and such :)

    One of my favorites:

    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow”.
    -Mary Anne Radmacher

  3. Good ones! Good ol’ Albus has some of the most wonderful things to say, doesn’t he!?

    My all time fave:

    Be yourself, every one else is already taken.
    – Oscar Wilde

    I love quotes sooo much I keep a book of my faves :D This post totally made my morning!

    xoxox love you babes!

  4. those are great quotes, ladies!
