I have a quote hoarding problem. I love them. They’re inspirational, funny, and often cheer me up when I’m down. (I also apologize for so many about writing, but it’s what I do and who I am.) So, in the spirit of writerly fun today, I’m going to share some of my favorites. (Maybe even why they’re my favorites!)
“Do not worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for the answers. Then the peace of God that passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
I tend to worry overmuch. This scripture has gotten me through some really rough patches, and continues to be one of my absolute all-time favorites.
“If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave.”
– Mo Willems
First of all, Mo Willems. ‘Nough said. He’s amazing. Secondly, this advice is more helpful in everyday life than you would think it is. Seriously, try giving it to yourself every once in a while.
“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling.”
This quote helped me a lot when I was trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. Finding one’s calling is a lot like finding paradise on Earth. You may go through hard times to get there, but you’re gonna love it once you’re living in it.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
– Thomas Jefferson
The man had loads of wisdom. This quote is so encouraging. I say it as a mantra every time I feel disappointed and just want to give up and give in.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
This first lady has a lot of good quotes, but this is one of my favorites. Dreams are beautiful.
“If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends) ‘Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?’ Chances are, you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death.”
– Steven Pressfield
Ironically, this helps when I’m asking myself if I’m really a writer. Or having any self-doubt.
“Worship is simply giving God his breath back.”
– Lou Giglio
Without worship I’d stop breathing.
“A well-read woman is a dangerous creature.”
– Lisa Kleypas
My excuse for being a voracious reader. AKA bookaholic. I don’t have a problem, I’m arming myself.
“Look, father, here comes a lion. Yes. It is a lion.”
Confession: only unknown quoter because I don’t know who wrote the song. This super inspirational quote (really, it can be used in any situation) is actually the opening line to The Lion King.
