A Little Inspiration

A little inspiration can go a long way. These quotes inspire me when I need a little inspiration in my day. I hope they inspire you too.

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us." Helen Keller 

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit." - Nelson Henderson 

"Govern thy life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one, and read the other."-Thomas Fuller 

"Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities."-Aldous Huxley 

"Let thy words be few."-Ecclesiastes 5:2 

"Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great."-Orison Swett Marden 

"Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks." -Johann Gottfried Von Herder 

"Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking."-William B. Sprague

"Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose--a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye." -Mary Shelley
