30 Quotes to Live By

The more I live, the more I realize how much of myself has been sculpted by the quotes I’ve been exposed to over the years. For some reason, the written language takes on a more healing and character-shaping effect on my mind, in comparison to spoken language. 

Quotes stay with me for a long time, even if I don’t remember the exact words. It has never been about memorizing words. I find that if the words I meant for that time of my life, they stick with me forever. 

Below are a few quotes that have played a huge role in shaping who I am today. I hope you find these words beautiful and help to bring a more introspective and positive outlook to your days.
