I always note down quotes that struck me. They can be words by savvy men/women or quotes from books, films, TV series (ah, GoT, what a great source of inspirational quotes!). I also note down lyrics of songs and poems.
Some consider this habit a bit childish but… Whatever, I don’t care. I don’t even take it as an offense, I like my childish side!
Anyway, I don’t like all those cheesy, sometimes cryptic (nonsense, maybe?) motivational quotes that I often see on Pinterest. They’re very successful (thousands of repins!) but seriously, does anybody think they’re true? Probably. Hence the theories according to which people who like “deep” motivational quotes are not smart at all. If this sounds totally new to you, read this article.
These quotes about life and how to live are inspirational and practical. And true! You probably already know some of them, but reading them again surely won’t hurt!
