One of my favorite pastimes is scrolling through my Pinterest feed and carefully pinning quotes that I can directly relate to. I read and I write–of course I love when words are able to adequately express something so real yet so vague in a beautiful or concise way.

People can rely on words to inspire them, to motivate them, to stir hidden emotions deep within them, to make them smile. Isn’t it incredible that words– just different combinations of twenty-six characters–can actually influence the human experience? I think it’s just amazing.

I just wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes that I’ve discovered on Pinterest with you, possibly give you a dose of inspiration for the day or make you smile. I’m not one to like quotes about woe and suffering–enough of that goes on in the real world. Why not focus on things that help alleviate the yucky?

Enjoy some small doses of inspiration and happiness, my friends:

  • “My words sound better coming from my hands than from my mouth.”
  • “Knowing is better than wondering, waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying” {Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy}.
  • “Giving up is for rookies” {Hercules}.
  • “Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our  most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it” {Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter}.
  • “The impossible is possible if you’re awesome!” {Bolt}.
  • “I hereby arm myself with coffee and willingness to be wrong.”
  • “The moment where you doubt you can fly, you cease for ever being able to do it” {Peter Pan}.
  • “I’m an optimist, but I’m an optimist who carries a raincoat” {Harold Wilson}.
  • “Well done is better than well said” {Benjamin Franklin}.
  • “You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself” {Glinda the Good, The Wizard of Oz}.
  • “Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is” {Mark Twain}.

I hope everyone has a great day, and remember my little motto when life gets you down: When in doubt, Pinterest it out.
