Quotes for Encouragement


Life can be stressful, challenging, and overwhelming. There is so much to do or at least it can seem that way. In the chaos of life, we can feel unsettled, uncomfortable, anxious, and discontent. To overcome these possibilities, it can be helpful to pause and reflect on positive messages. Give yourself a moment to just breathe, relax your body and your mind, and focus your attention on a brief but meaningful message, whatever that happens to be for you. Read some of the following quotes to feel a sense of encouragement and hope.

“In the midst of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” – Albert Camus

“We cannot discover new oceans until we have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Gide
