I think everybody loves inspirational quotes. They are powerful words of wisdom condensed into just 1-2 lines. Whenever you read them, you are inspired to take action immediately. Therefore I thought it would be a great idea to come with the ultimate list of 50 inspirational quotes to live by. So after choosing the best quotes to live by from the hundreds that I had, I managed to come up with the top 50. To kick it off, here’s my personal favourite – “This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.” Maya Angelou
How to Use This List
Instead of keeping these amazing quotes to myself, I decided it would be greate to share them with you. I hope these quotes will inspire you and motivate you. I encourage you to save this as a resource to come back whenver you are in need for a motivational boost, and we all know that every now and then we need a boost.
I initially created this list as a resource for myself and I have bookmarked this page, so I could re-read it on regular basis. It is my hope that you won’t see this as a quick article to read, but rather as a resource to come back whenever you need some inspiration. So please, save this resource for when you need it in the future and pass it on to those that you think will benefit from it.
