Encouraging Quotes

If you need some encouraging quotes to help give you a lift back up, then here are some that may help. We all get hit and knocked down in life. It’s just part of the experience but it’s really not about avoiding these hits; it’s about being able to get back up every time you are knocked down. It’s not always easy to want to get back up. Often times, it’s a lot easier to just stay down but whether you stay down or get back up, life will still go on so you might as well fight.

Whatever you may be going through in your life, I hope these encouragement quotes will help you out at least a little bit. If you happen to know of any good phrases that fit this category, I encourage you to add them in the comments section below where you’ll find a lot more quotes. Thanks.

  19. If

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster
    And treat those two imposters just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breath a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch;
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!


  20. One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.

  21. I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.

  22. One great lesson I learned from my life..there is no market for your emotions, so never advertise your feelings, just show your attitude.

  23. Challenges makes you more responsible. Always remember that life without struggle is a life without success. Don’t give up and learn not to quit.

  24. We hold this truth to be self evident that all men are created equal.. If you do have challenges in life, it means you’re strong enough to solve it. Every one of us has its own purpose in this world. Even a single piece of sand was given a task by GOD here on earth. There are many problems that we need to tackle. So be prepared and do whatever you can do.. God is always there to assist us and guide us..

  25. If you believe you are good at failing, try failing at failing.

    Without failures, success would be easy and not an accomplishment. And never forget success is all perspective. What you may not have succeeded at directly, you may have succeeded numerous ways indirectly.

    Be the sun in your own universe. Do not revolve around others, but let them revolve around you if they need your light to see.

  26. It doesn’t matter how dark is your room, but what makes it worse is you do not even want to find the switch to turn on the light. everyone has a switch in their life. no matter how dark is your life, just switch on your light.

  27. Thanks for all of these encouraging quotes. One of my favorites is:

    “The darkest night is often the bridge to the brightest tomorrow.”

  28. When I was a child, I criticised my father. Now that I am a father, I look to my son for understanding. Between being a child and becoming a man, I have learnt not to criticise a situation I haven’t had to deal with. – Kelvin Abdallah

  29. Life makes you or break you ….when you are broken don’t get depress for that is just giving GOD the perfect opportunity to mend you how he wants you …..
