Best Motivational & Inspirational Quotes

Welcome to the Best Year of Your Life!

I’m so excited to be living and I want to share my excitement with you.

I’ve spent hours crawling through the web trying to find the best quotes to keep me motivated and inspired all throughout the New Year. I’ve saved hundreds of quotes on my laptop and figured that words alone could motivate and inspire me… but if I couple the quotes with motivational and inspirational images then that will really keep me motivated and inspired!

So after choosing the best motivational and inspirational quotes from the hundreds that I had, I managed to come up with the Top 100.

How to Use This List

Instead of keeping this to myself, I thought I would share this list with you. I hope it motivates and inspires you just as much as it does for me. I encourage you to save this as a resource to come back to when you’re in the need for a boost (and I know that we all need a boost every now and then!). I initially created this list as a resource for myself and I have bookmarked this page to return to it on a regular basis.

I certainly hope that you will also see this as a resource rather than just a quick article to read. So please, save this resource for when you need it in the future and pass it on to those that you think will benefit from it.

I’ve broken the quotes into 6 categories in which they fit:
