The Best Quotes That Will Make You Feel More Positive

The Best Quotes That Will Make You Feel More Positive Banner
So my Harry Potter Inspirational Quotes List did so well I thought I'd do another list of quotes.

There are many reasons people feel the need to hear or read quotes; whether to get through the day, motivate themselves or even just because they enjoy them. I have always loved Pinterest for Quotes, well graphics of quotes, but the best quotes come from books, films and people. Positive quotes are the best and motivational quotes are what keep me going and reminds me of what I can achieve if I try. I've written down a few of my favourites. In fact, when I was going through my A-Levels, being told by teachers I wouldn't achieve and while doing my university essays etc these are a few of the best that got me through. They also reminded me, while battling my Mental Health issues, that life is precious and we only get one, so to make it the best I can.

I hope these can help you in some way. Write them down, tell other people, even get a tattoo of them as many have! Quotes are a great way of inspiring and motivating yourself. All of these can be personalised to your situation in some day. For me not only have they helped me through my studies but also to help me come to terms and live with my chronic illnesses and infertility issues.
