    Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

      “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed. It was the experience of mystery — even if mixed with fear — that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds: it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity. In this sense, and only this sense, I am a deeply religious man.” – Albert Einstein

    The only way to figure out who you are is to get to that place where you don’t have to be anything else.

    I saw it on a Bongo jeans ad when I was in high school. No attribution, so maybe it was just written by some copywriter working for the agency that did the ad. Still, I’ve always loved it.

    Of all the inspirational quotes I’ve ever read, nothing tops the one I found in my 3rd grade classroom: “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
    -Shel Silverstein

    My favorite quotation is more of a story than a quotation about Bruce Lee from a friend he was training with, John Little:

    “I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”

    • natalie 09/19/2013 at 7:47 am #

      What a awesome quote/story. Mr. Lee was a very smart man. Its a shame he died so young.

    My favorite quote is:

    “Life will write the words, but you choose your own melody.”

    Its from one of my favorite songs, “Circa ’46.” To me, it means that we can’t always choose what happens to us in life, but we can choose how we will face those circumstances. :)

    “I was born for a storm and calm does not suit me.” – Andrew Jackson

    This really inspires me because I was born during a really chaotic storm and my father thought it meant something about me. This quote reminds me that I can take on anything and that I shouldn’t settle for less.

    Pretty much my most favorite quotes are from Doctor Who, most of which were uttered by the 11th Doctor. Its hard to narrow it down because he said some pretty profound and inspiring things, but this one is probably my most recent favorite, it gave me chills:
    “All the elements in your body were forged many, many millions of years ago, in the heart of a far away star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing-wax and cabbages and kings. Until eventually, they came together to make you. You’re unique in the universe. There is only one You. And there will never be another.” – The Doctor, from The Rings of Akhaten

    Love this idea, but it’s really hard to narrow it down to my all time favorite quote, that said:
    “You could never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me” CS Lewis

  45. Emily 09/09/2013 at 6:51 pm #

    I came across this quote in a magazine earlier this summer and it really stuck with me.

    “No matter what you do, what you say, or who you become, there will always be someone who doesn’t approve. There will always be someone who thinks you’re too much or too little. Someone who finds you too obedient or too outspoken; too sensitive or too cold; too needy or too distant; too serious or too immature; too much of who you really are and not enough of who they really want or need you to be. And that’s okay. It’s impossible to please everyone, and more importantly, you don’t exist to conform to other people’s standards. If someone doesn’t like who you are, that’s their problem — not yours. You can’t live your life based on other people’s needs and expectations, especially not when it means compromising who you are and what makes you happy. You have to make your happiness and wellbeing a priority. You have to let go of the idea that you need other people to validate your worth. You have to believe with absolute conviction that who you are is exactly enough. You have to trust that who you are is all you need to be.”
    — Daniell Koepke

    The first step – especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money – the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.

    I loads but my favorite ones are these by Taylor Swift

    “FEARLESS’ is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death…FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change…Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright…That’s FEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and Prince Charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.”

    “Beauty is sincerity. There are so many different ways someone can be beautiful.”

    My most recent favorite quote

    “My body sometimes feels sore, but it works. I don’t sleep well most nights, but I do wake up to fight another day. My wallet is not full but my stomach is. I don’t have all the things I ever wanted but I do have everything I will ever need. I’m thankful because although my life is by no means perfect, it’s my life and I’m happy. ~unknown”

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    – Marianne Williamson

    As Harold took a bite of Bavarian sugar cookie, he finally felt as if everything was going to be ok. Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren’t any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange, but I also know that it just so happens to be true. And, so it was, a wristwatch saved Harold Crick.

    How fun!
    Always been a favorite quote of mine!

    “The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
    ― Audrey Hepburn

  151. Tina 09/10/2013 at 12:16 pm #

    My favourite inspirational quote is “Why not now”.

    I read it in a blog regarding procrastination (I don’t remember whose so I can’t give credit) and how things build up because we think we’ll get to it later. The best way to get over it is to ask yourself “why not now” and go ahead and do it! It’s helped me immensely :+)

    “There is no designated time for anything in your life. You don’t have to have your first kiss at any certain time, you don’t have to get married in your 20′s and you don’t have to do anything just because other people think it’s best. In fact, you will be much better off if you just do what your heart says. The day you stop caring what other people think is the day their opinions don’t mean anything, because you’re not there to give them weight.”

    Quotes are powerful things. They can give us inspiration make a bad day great and just give you a smile. The best ones are the ones that relate to your live and help you to move on.

    “Ok, hey, I got something to say to you, man. I brake for birds, I rock a lot of polka dots, I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children, and I find it fundamentally strange that you’re not a dessert person. That’s just weird and it freaks me out, and I’m sorry I don’t talk like Murphy Brown, and I hate your pant suit. I wish it had ribbons on it or something to make it slightly cuter, and that doesn’t mean I’m not smart and tough and strong.” – New Girl

    To be happy, it first takes being comfortable in your own shoes. The rest can work up from there. The hardest situation to stay happy, I think, is when you’re trying to find love, and yourself at the same time. It just doesn’t seem to fit well. So I believe that happiness is being able to wake up and just know that this is what you wanted, and not what somebody else wanted. (Sophia Bush)

    Two quotes immediately sprang to mind, and I just couldn’t deny one or the other.

    “Bottom line is, even if you see ‘em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are. You’ll see what I mean.” – Whistler, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    “For in every adult there dwells the child that was, and in every child there lies the adult that will be.” – John Connolly

  326. Jennifer williams 09/10/2013 at 2:12 pm #

    The quote I’d like to submit is,

    “When there’s nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.”

    A quote in the song, “Your Ex-Lover Is Dead” by the band Stars.

    To me it means, when you can’t find inspiration any where else, know that YOU are inspiration enough.

  327. Erin 09/10/2013 at 2:13 pm #

    Oscar Wilde – “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

  334. Kate 09/10/2013 at 2:18 pm #

    1. “This too shall pass.” It’s so simple, but it reminds you that everything passes and you have a chance to make it better.

  335. Tamar 09/10/2013 at 2:18 pm #

    I have a few, but oh well:
    “The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”
    -Neil Degrasse Tyson

    “Not all those who wander are lost.”
    -J.R.R. Tolkein

    “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
    -Roald Dahl

  336. Caitlyn K 09/10/2013 at 2:20 pm #

    “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities”
    Dr. Seuss

    and

    “Do you really want to be happy? You can begin by being appreciative of who you are and what you’ve got.” – The Tao of Pooh

    Sometimes bleakness and reality become too harsh and you realize what’s missing in life… some Dr. Seuss!

    “You attract the like energy you put out. The Universe will keep on sending you problems and annoyances that hit an issue you have within yourself as long as they remain useful to you. Once that issue is resolved, the problem no longer stimulates your personal evolution and therefore no longer needs to happen. Happiness therefore lies within a shifting of perspective in the present moment. Choose freedom. Choose liberation. Move from panic to freedom, and watch a world of magic and bliss open itself up to you” – quantumlotus

    “Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes’.” -Stephen Colbert

    I have two!

    “Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. And by doing it, they’re proven right. Because, I think there’s something inside of you—and inside of all of us—when we see something and we think, ‘I think I can do it, I think I can do it. But I’m afraid to.’ Bridging that gap, doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—THAT is what life is. And I think you might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself. Now you know. A mystery is solved. So, I think you should just give it a try. Just inch yourself out of that back line. Step into life. Courage. Risks. Yes. Go. Now.” Amy Poehler

    “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

    Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

    So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

    Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

    Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” — Neil Gaiman

    well…I couldn’t help it. If you have time to read the whole speech then it’s right here:)

    Samwise Gamgee: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

    Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

    Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.

    ‘Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

    It’s been fantastic to read everyone’s quotes! Here’s mine:

    “Every young man or boy that met her became her son–even if it was only the boy that brought the meat to her back door. Every girl that met her was her daughter…Every beast and bird that came near her had its place in her love. In her they became themselves. And now the abundance of life she has in Christ from the Father flows over into them… there is joy enough in the little finger of a great saint such as yonder lady to waken all the dead things of the universe into life.” – C.S. Lewis’ Great Divorce

    Honorable mentions go to Tolkien, Adams and Wilde :)

    “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” – c s lewis

    Of the world for ever, it seems.”

    I used to find amazing photos, attach quotes to them and email them to a sister who was very sick and passing away with cancer. She told me that “this one made her laugh right out loud”.
