And I Quote…

I take inspiration in all forms. One sure fire way to shift my thinking and my mood are quotes. I am always looking for quotes to inspire and to motivate.
I am kind of the queen of quotes. I used to have then taped all around the computer monitor at my desk.

Here are a few of my favorites that have been speaking to me lately:

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn

“If you don’t spend your life building your dreams you’ll spend it building someone else’s.”  – Anonymous

“Everything we want is in the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield

“The difference between style and fashion is quality.” – Giorgio Armani

“Be you, everyone else is taken.” – Oscar Wilde

“Your imagination is a preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”  – Albert Einstein

I’m joining in with Mama Kat’s writing prompts. I chose the prompt: choose 6 of your favorite quotes. I couldn’t just choose six! I thought these were right on time though as we are moving more into this year and may need that boost to keep our goals in sight. Stay focused, motivated and inspired!

Do you have a favorite quote?

    Ooh, I love these quotes–especially the last one! I may have to borrow that. I love reading quotes, nothing gets the mind going like a great quote. Mu favorite one is ” give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day; teach a man to fish, he’ll eat all his life” not exact, but you understand. 🙂

    quotes are good but really, they alone, wouldn’t motivate me even a bit

    “I am not what I use to be but I am wider and wiser then I use to be.” unknown

    “If you want to be free, just start doing what God wants you to do, one step at a time, and you’ll eventually workout your mess.” Joyce Meyers

    “Don’t block your blessings. Don’t let doubt stop you from getting where you want to be.” Jennifer Hudson

    “This life is a process of learning.” Lauryn Hill

    They’re all great, but I especially I love the last one. It’s a really good way to look at things.
    I used to be obsessed with quotes. I still love reading them, but I don’t really go out of my way to do it anymore.

    “You ever see a U-Haul behind a hearse? You can’t take it with you!”

    ~My mom’s take on materialism.

    I have a TON of quotes I use as inspiration and I’m loving yours 🙂

    I love quotes too! I like the one building your own dreams, versus building someone else’s. All of these are very inspirational! My favorite quote is by C.S. Lewis, “You’re never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

    The Oscar Wilde one is one of my favorites. But a recent one I found is from Margaret Thatcher: ” being powerful is like bring a lady. If you have to tell people you are, then you aren’t.”

    I love a good quote (I can rarely remember who said what, though, outside of movies. Now, movies! Movies I can quote, rather creepily.)

    love me some quotes…in moderation. sometimes i get inundated with too many coming across my twitter feed. my fave is by Maya Angelou, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.” i probably don’t have it word for word, but you get the point.
