Quotes to Comfort You


Sometimes I just need hope.  When things are not going the right way – or it seems I’m making little or now progress and working really really hard – or when people seem to be fighting against the progress I am trying to make.  Sometimes I just need comfort from another who has traveled a similar path to the one I want to travel.

Hopefully, some of these quotes provide some inspiration to you on the road that you travel today.


An Eye for an Eye only ends up making the whole world blind ~Ghandi

When you judge another, you do not define them, but define yourself ~Dr. Wayne Dyer

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending ~Maria Robinson

If life gets too hard to stand, kneel ~Gordon B. Hinkley (Prophet)

Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I built my life ~J.K. Rowling

There are only 2 ways to live your life.  One as though nothing is a miracle.  The other as though everything is a miracle.  ~Albert Einstein

It is never too late to be what you might have been ~George Eliot

What the mind can conceive, it can achieve ~Napoleon Hill

If opportunity does not knock, build a door ~Milton Berle

First they ignore you.  Then they laugh at you.  Then they fight you.  Then you win ~Ghandi

When you can’t change the direction of the wind – adjust your sails ~H Jackson Brown Jr.

Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life.  Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking…And more important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you want to become.  Everything else is secondary.  ~Steve Jobs

Sometimes we let our thoughts of tomorrow take up too much of today. Daydreaming of the past and longing for the future may provide comfort but will not take the place of living in the present. This is the day of our opportunity, and we must grasp it. ~Thomas Monson

  2. They are indeed comforting, and mostly true.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely wish. There’s not much fuzz about being an Ortodox , as far as I know (although to be honest, I am not an expert), we just celebrate the Easter on different times. We believe in God, Jesus and Mary and the Holy Spirit, same as many other religions and that’s pretty much all I care about 🙂 Anything else looks like politics to me.

  3. Hi Lisa,
    I love your collection of quotes. The theme of looking for an alternative when what is in front of you seems insurmountable resonates in these quotes and certainly brings comfort through hope. I love that the theme of the month is comfort. I had not heard of NaBloPoMo before. How do you link to it? I’m a big fan of bringing comfort as you can tell from my twitter handle and just wrote about it this week! I hope you a week full of hope and comfort.
