Some More Quotes to Inspire Us


Those of you who have been my blogging friends since the beginning, will know that I love inspirational quotes, and I thought I would share a few more with you today.


Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
-- Oprah Winfrey


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
-- Helen Keller

Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
-- Denis Waitley

Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.
Christiane Northrup

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
-- Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.
-- Stephen Grellet


I like them all, but I think number five would have to be my favourite.
For those of us living where the weather has been so cold recently, isn't it lovely to see the back of January.  We can now eagerly look forward to longer days and, hopefully, better weather.

Soon the bare winter trees will be a thing of the past, as we look forward to Spring with joy in our hearts.

Such wonderful quotes! With so much negativity in the news influencing many who pick that up and carry it around, often without realizing they are doing so, it is good to read positive, inspirational quotes and start (or restart) or days with a bright outlook.
