Some days we become so empty that we yearn to be filled with some fuel, just to allow our engines to go on.  I personally have had these days, and I know the need in these trying time. Yet there are quotes to encourage us in the most overwhelming moments of our lives. I have had times where a quote with just a few words painted hope in my heart. I’ve learnt that just a few words can make a difference in our day. Words like “you are enough,” or “you are appreciated.” It is both good to receive these words, and to gift them to others. If you have done both, then you will understand the reward they offer.

Regardless of our needs, we all can find encouragement in the powerful words of a thoughtful quote. Quotes written by real people who have gone through real stuff, and want to give real encouragement. I hope these quotes will brighten your day, and that they will inspire you to brighten someone else’s day.
