If you’ve been looking for the occasional quote to perk up your day, here are a few great ones focused on “The Philosophy of Life.” I have collected a huge amount of inspirational quotes I like to scan through that have impacted my life. I find that these quotes somehow change my state of mind and tend to give me a great boost.
Today’s first quote come from one of my favorite books, Alice in Wonderland.
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland continues to be one of my favorite books of all time. It’s just so weird and confusing. I love re-reading it every few years. This particular quote reminds me how far I’ve come, and gives me hope that I can continue to grow and change.
The next quote up is from Steven Covey.
“It comes from within.” ― Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
I read this book many years ago and have not revisited it recently. One of the things I remind myself of constantly is that I have everything within me that I need to succeed. This quote is a great reminder.
Lastly is a quote from the movie Castaway. It’s a partial quote, perhaps slightly out of context, but powerful anyway.
“And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?” – Tom Hanks in Castaway
