As many of you know, I am a total quote nerd. I love quotes. My quotes board on Pinterest may be the board with the most pins on it. I have a love for both wise and witty words, because I consider myself wise but witty, too.

I’m constantly looking for new quotes, especially when I am struggling with something or when I need some extra motivation. Below are the thirteen quotes I am currently living by.

(Also, a warning, there is a bad word or two!)

My Favorite Quotes

  1. “There is power in whatever you give power.”
  2. “Your life is not permanent. You are not stuck. You have choices. You are allowed to grow and change.”
  3. “In order to become the 1% you have to do what the other 99% won’t.”
  4. “I wasn’t given a second chance just to play it safe. Mediocrity can kill, and I am done with dying.”
  5. “There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure.”
  6. “Be kind and full of love… but have boundaries like a motherfucker.”
  7. “No matter how educated, talented, rich, or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all. Integrity is everything.”
  8. “I really, really think the secret to being loved is to love. And the secret to being interesting is to be interested. And the secret to having a friend is being a friend.”
  9. “Trust the vibe you get, for energy does not lie.”
  10. “Remember your words can plant gardens or burn whole forests down.”
  11. “You have more to do than be weighed down by pretty or beautiful. You are a fiery heart and a wicked brain. Do not let your soul be defined by its shell.”
  12. “Write hard and clear about what hurts.”
  13. “Successful people are not gifted; they just work hard, then succeed on purpose.”

These quotes have helped me through the past three years or so, when I have struggled with knowing who my friends are, who I can trust, setting up my blog and business, and making decisions. They’ve also helped me change my mindset from pessimism to an attitude of gratitude.
