motivational quotes

Often when I’m stuck in a dark place, I browse the internet for motivational quotes. I believe motivation is like sunshine, it comes and goes, and is something we cannot control. It can suddenly get hidden for a few minutes and then come back or can disappear for days and seem like it will never return. Despite how much sunshine there currently is, what we can do is remind ourselves that it still exists, and will eventually return. Similarly, motivational quotes are a way to remind ourselves that regardless of what we are going through, there is still hope. They can remind us to keep going, and can often create a spark in us that turns into a wildfire of inspiration.

Whether you’re currently in school, work, or at home, sometimes we all need a bit of motivation. For that exact reason, I have compiled a list of 40 motivational quotes that are guaranteed to help you get back up, to help you move on, and to help you fight through whatever issues you may be currently having.
