There are some great quotes here! I always enjoy reading through some quotes, they can be quite uplifting and helpful.
Thank you for a great list of quotes that inspire me. I especially relate to the Confucius quote regarding one’s pace – I so often feel like I should be moving faster!

Patience is indeed a virtue! I love your list of quotes. I can always visit this post when I feel unmotivated or when I feel like giving up.
The one by Radmacher has been a favourite of mine for some time now. What I do tell my kids a lot is this — As long as there is life, there is hope. Rest today, tomorrow’s just another day.
Wow….I love these quotes. ““Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy” – Saadi.” speaks the most to me.
Those are all very beautiful quotes. Some of them are very motivating and will surely be helpful on days when you are feeling down.
These are all good. Resonating with the one about how going through the storm will change us. That’s for sure. In good ways too, a large portion of the time. Seems we learn a lot when we go through them, even if they’re not pleasant.
These are great quotes and I’m using some of them already. I take them as a good reminder when feeling low. Thank you for sharing!
I love quotes. My favourite is: “If you can’t fly, then run; if you can’t run, then walk; if you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward” – Martin Luther King Jr.
I needed to see this as I have been feeling a bit down lately. The one from Confucious has always been my favorite. Go slow/ baby steps but never stop. 🙂
