120 Best Quotes About Life To Inspire You Everyday

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start. I’ve stopped dreading Monday because I found the secret to love everyday is to do what you love. If you still don’t like Monday and are feeling time is going to fast, don’t worry. There’s a saying September is the new January so I’m compiling a list of best quotes about life to keep us motivated for the rest of the year.

Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar once said: “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.” If you’ve failed to keep ALL your New Year’s resolutions, you still have 4 months and about 17 weeks until the end of this year!  How about making the most of the feeling of renewal and fresh start of September? Now is the perfect time to sit down and start considering the small changes you could make to improve your life day after day. Feeling uninspired? A little depressed? Maybe those can help you. Here’s a list of best quotes about life for your dose of daily motivation.
