Inspirational quotes

One Positive and Inspiring Quote in The Morning, Can Set Your Entire Day.

Quite often, I come across Inspirational quotes, shared by people, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and other social media websites.

I find thsee quotes, truly inspirational and motivating. Sometimes, they appear just at the right moment, when you are really in need of that positive and friendly boost, from someone.

There are times, when we are in a stressful mood. There are several moments of despair, unhappiness and irritation, in our lives.

Life is like that --While there are some favourable times, there may not be so favourable times always.

One needs someone, to provide emotional support to you. Few words of Inspiration, to boost you up, to make you cheerful, and face the facts of life, with renewed hope and belief.

Life is not a bed of Roses. Most of the times, things do not turn out, as you may have planned them. In such a situation, these encouraging words, work as a catalyst, and you are again ready, to face the sweet-sour situations of life.

Living without faith is like driving in the fog!

Living without faith is like driving in the fog!

Yes, I was terribly busy in some of my personal work and thus it took a long time to publish another hub.

Thanks and I really appreciate your visit and appreciation!

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on April 23, 2014:

What an inspiring collection! it must have taken quite a while to find all those and get them together. A very interesting hub.

manatita44 from london on April 23, 2014:

Very inspirational indeed! Still, my sweet Friend, it was hard to do the poll. For me the Absolute would have been a welcome addition.

Denise W Anderson from Bismarck, North Dakota on April 23, 2014:

My favorite is the one about being pleasant until 10:00 a.m. - the rest of the day will take care of itself! How true! So often we get upon the wrong side of the bed, and the rest of the day is shot. If we could just look in the mirror and smile at ourselves, and greet ourselves as if we were an honored guest in our own home, perhaps things would be different! (Do you mind if I quote you?)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 23, 2014:

Well done sweet lady, inspirational indeed!

CraftytotheCore on April 23, 2014:

This is a great list of quotes. My favorite from this list is "Good people are good because they have come to wisdom through facing failures in life." It's through understanding of a situation that we can help others in life through experience of our own.

Susan Britton from Ontario, Canada on April 23, 2014:

What a good collection to make. I have not heard of some of these but they were what I needed from a friend today. Thank you my friend:)

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 23, 2014:

I love quotes and use them often in my articles. There are some very good ones in this collection and I thank you.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on April 23, 2014:

Great hub?

A beautifully thought of hub and such inspirations motivate me even more, my family and friends are my best choices including books. Nice to read anew hub from you.
