So, I thought it appropriate that we start off with one of his more inspiring quotes: Keep your face always toward sunshine—and shadows will fall behind you.

Never give up!

When you’re feeling discouraged, look back on what’s gotten you to where you are now. Think about all of your hard work and know that one day, it will pay off.

Remind yourself that hard work always pays off in some way or another—even if it doesn’t seem like it at first.

This quote is so good for motivation. Dr. Seuss says Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened, so that you will never forget how great life was when you were in love.

Your body heals itself when you sleep. - Hippocrates

If you want your body to heal itself, you need sleep. If you don’t give it sleep, it will heal itself without rest and repair for other parts of your body, which can be detrimental. Sleeping doesn’t only benefit your mind—it benefits every part of your body. The period between eight and 12 hours of sleep is a critical time when cells are regenerating. The best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle is getting good rest through sleeping enough hours each night!


There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. – William Shakespeare

Hamlet. Hamlet is a play written by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1602. It is thought that There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so was spoken by Horatio when he sees his friend Laertes swears revenge on his father Polonius who had just died under suspicious circumstances. This quote is a fine example of rational thought.


Hanging on to anger is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head. – Mark Twain

Anger can be a powerful motivator, but it’s a short-term boost that does little long-term good. The energy you spend holding onto anger is better spent finding ways to let go of those feelings and move on with your life.

America’s 26th president was also a writer, naturalist, explorer, soldier and public servant. One of his most famous quotes is Believe you can and you're halfway there.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. – William Blake

As children, we were told not to take risks and always play it safe. As adults, there’s nothing more exhilarating than overcoming our fears and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones. There is no more potent motivator than wanting something badly enough that you’re willing to risk everything for it.


The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. – Lao Tzu
