Life is complicated but it is a little easier when we have quotes.”Jeremiah Say
We have all been hurt by words so you are probably familiar with how hurtful words can be.
Words can no doubt cause destruction and tear down lives but when used wisely, words can also heal a broken soul.
I have been down and out. I am still in the process of recovering at the time of writing this post.
But when I choose what I let into my mind, I always find words to be extremely encouraging.
Not just any word per se but words in the form of life-altering, life-changing quotes.
Here are some of the most encouraging life quotes that I had gathered over the past several months.
They encouraged me during my darkest hour and I sincerely hope you will find encouragement and comfort in them too.

3 Books That Changed My Life
- Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl
This book teaches me to appreciate the little things.

If Victor can find meaning in life in the midst of terrible sufferings, anybody can.
Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.“Viktor Frankl
- The ONE Thing by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan
In the past, I was always stressful and anxious about doing everything right. Not only that, I wanted to do everything well.
Needless to say, I overstressed myself to the point of depression.
This book has given me the ‘aha moment.’
It was like putting down a huge boulder so I could walk weightless and freely on cloud nine.
Success is about doing the right thing. Not about doing everything right.”The ONE Thing
- The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
I wasn’t as gifted like many of my friends.
I desperately wanted to be like them and therefore I spent many hours researching what separates the best from the rest.
This book shows that the gifted are rarely talented people.
They just have that little advantage over everyone else and is what Jeff dubbed as The Slight Edge.
If you want to know the secret to live a meaningful life of abundance, then this book is definitely a must-read.
Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.”Jeff olson
