Inspirational Quotes

Megan has resisted the temptation to turn to a life of crime–stealing wi-fi, that is–and asked me to post for her today.

She’s on vacation and I’m not…..I’m just saying…..

For no other reason than I was just reading Today’s Inspiration-Quote of the Day (sent to me from Everyday Health), I decided to randomly look for Inspirational and Motivational Quotes, just to make us feel good. That and the fact that I actively used and still use quotes like this to keep me motivated in the writing life:

The one in my email:
“I have always believed that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”
–Hermann Hesse


From http://www.inspirational-quotes.info/dreams.html
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
–Henry David Thoreau

We definitely need a Vince Lombardi quote:
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
–Vince Lombardi

From: http://www.famous-quotes-and-quotations.com/home.html
“From Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.”
Samuel Johnson

And this one, not because it relates to writing, but because it made me smile.
From the Quotations Page Motivational Quote of the Day:
“Do not employ handsome servants.”
–Chinese Proverb

I’m not saying these are the best inspirational and motivational quotations, but just the ones I found today. Do you have any favorite, “feel good” quotations that motivate you?
