Take inspiration in quotes, not resolutions this year.

25 Quotes To Live The New Year By

As I enter the the first week of the New Year, I come to realize that maybe resolutions aren't the way to go. Like I've said time and time before, I never actually make progress on them and they're just something to laugh at the following year.

So this year, I still will make a resolutions list, but I'll also make a quotes list. I've always seen the beauty in written word and had a fascination for it ever since. I'll live my life by quotes to guide my life, not by goals I'm setting for myself.

4. "Love is the most expensive gift. Make sure you don't give it to someone that's cheap." -unknown

14. "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter." - E.E. Cummings

15. "Perhaps the problem is not the intensity of your love, but the quality of the people you are loving." -Warsan Shire

16. "You must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it." -Yann Martel

17. " Don't you dare shrink yourself for someone else's comfort—do not become small for people who refuse to grow." -unknown

19. "Looking back as another year comes to a close I find myself hoping that next year will be better than this one; but I always remind myself that if I write off this year completely it risks dismissing all of the important moments that helped me grow as a person. Because even the very bad times of this year helped shape me for what is yet to come." -Westley Nash

20. "We cannot learn without pain." -Aristotle
