15 Inspirational Quotes To Get You Through Your Day

Call me old fashioned, but I love smelling books. Nothing beats the smell of crinkling yellow pages, seeped with the scent of old tea. Especially when those old pages are filled to the brim with quotes from my dear friends. Google can be an amazing resource when it comes to finding inspirational quotes. All to often, I will google key words and save pictures of quotes that speak to me. Yet, I hold onto that 60 year old librarian inside of me. Every book I read finds its way into my journal. It could be a simple line, or a paragraph that reminded me of a memory or a diagram about the quote I love. Quotes bring me a sense of confidence and life. They have brought me comfort, dared me to challenge my ways of thinking, made me cry and made me laugh. Here are just a few of the ones I hold closest to my heart.

1."You never really understand a person until you climb into their skin and walk around." -Atticus Finch

2. "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." -Dr. Seuss

4. "It's like that with art. You can't tell someone how to do it or its not her art. You can't tell someone how to believe." -Things I Can't Forget

7. "She is a font de connaissance. A what? A fountain of knowledge." -And We Stay

9. "And whether you win or lose the important thing is who you are when it is over." -The Bridge From Me to You
