Top 10 Tuesday: Quotes I love and live by

I always turn to my favorite quotes for motivation or inspiration. I love finding a new quote that can put my thoughts, feelings or ideas into one simple sentence. Picking only ten was hard, but here are the quotes I love, and try to live by.

1. "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

2. "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken" - Oscar Wilde

3. "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose" - Dr. Suess

4. "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't; you're right." - Henry Ford

5. "Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one would believe it." - Unknown

6. "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life" - Confucius

7. "Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day." - Unknown


8. "Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love" - Mother Teresa

9. "The most important thing is to enjoy your life, to be happy. It's all that matters" - Audrey Hepburn

    There is another quote of Mother Teresa's similar to the one above that goes "If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one."

  3. I like #7 especially.

    #5 is kind of tricky. Sadly, some people love juicy gossip and rumors, and will quickly believe anything negative they hear about you, just for the excitement (excitement for them, at least).

  6. I loveee quotes. I literally have a quote for everything I do. Those were some of my favorite quotes, especially Oscar Wilde's. But, my absolute FAVORITE is by Albert Einstein-Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it's stupid.
