Life can be complicated, messy, and just plain crazy. How on earth would I be able to figure it out without books to inspire and motivate me? For me, reading and taking in the words of brilliant authors has always been the best way to sort through the tangle of life. After all, books are a way for us to experiment and learn through other people's experiences, a way for authors to pass on the lessons they've learned through their own life. Without the help of books, I have no idea where I'd be.
Everyone needs a mantra to help them get through the day. Something to repeat to yourself when you need guidance, or that makes you feel just a little bit stronger. We can use the wisdom of books to energize us, help us believe in ourselves, and remind ourselves that we are not alone.
Here are some quotes from books to keep close to your chest. These quotes will inspire you, uplift you, and motivate you to live your best life. Find a mantra that speaks to you and keep it nearby. Pin it to your wall, write it in your journal, or just have it in your head for whenever you need it. Life may be weird, but literature's got your back.
