The title is misleading. I admit it.
The following quotes are not mine so you can’t actually quote ME on these but you can quote these other people.
Sometimes I like to find quotes that strike a chord with me. I find that the ones that make an impact on me are the short ones that get right to the point. Most focus on happiness, love or self worth. Those are the ones that make me smile when I read them.
Quotes are often posted on bathroom mirrors, refrigerator doors and scribbled on notepads on desks. They are often pulled out to offer to others in letters and notes written to offer encouragement. There is a quote available for every situation and if there isn’t – just make one up of your own.
So today please enjoy a few short quotes that I like.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you. Walt Whitman
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. Napoleon Hill
There are two ways of spreading the light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. Edith Wharton
Whoever is happy will make others happy too. Anne Frank
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. Thomas Jefferson
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Marcel Proust
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. Margaret Mead
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on. Robert Frost
Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Maya Angelou

I love quotes! My favorite is “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among stars.” And of course #dreambigandhuge
I love your quotes, Jen! It is so you!
“Try to be a rainbow…” perfect.
That is a great one! Thanks for sharing !
Thanks! I love all of these quotes. Maya Angelou is my favourite. Here’s another that I think is special, “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
And that is a perfect one as well. Thanks for sharing!
A couple that I’ve remembered for MANY years: “Bloom where you’re planted” and a longer one: “Life is mostly froth and bubble; two things stand as stone: kindness in another’s trouble, courage in your own”. And I don’t know who to credit for them!
Those are perfect ones, Dianna. I love them. That second one is fabulous! I am writing it down right now!
Love these, there are a few of my faves sprinkled in. I’ve always loved quotes and will scribble them in my planners, journal, notepads and sometimes even make pretty photos with them. 🙂
I love your pretty photo quotes–you do a great job at fitting the perfect ones with the perfect pictures.
Thanks Beth- all good quotes! Quotes were probably the social media of the times before there was such a thing as social media. I like Margaret Meads quote- puts everything in perspective! Marcel’s quote was new to me- I like that too!
Thanks for stopping by! There are some really good quotes out there, aren’t there? I am always happy to find new ones.
You know how I love quotes, so you have to know I loved this post! My quote notebook is chock full and some of the ones you list here are in there.
I love that you have a quote notebook. I am just not that organized i guess. I have them everywhere and very disorganized. 🙂
My notebook is old (I started it in college) and there are tons of scraps of paper stuck in it with quotes on them. It’s all crammed in there but not necessarily organized. 😉
Thanks for sharing these quotes. I still have that list of uplifting bible verses you sent me a few years back taped to my desk.
That makes me so happy that you have those still. I hope they have brought you some comfort and help over the years. 🙂
Wine is constant proof that God loves us & wants us to be happy- Ben Franklin
Oh yes! That one is a good one, Josh. Thanks for sharing.
I too like the shorter quotes. Ones that make think and care. All your quotes are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Shirley. You are so sweet. I like the short ones as well because they usually get right to the point. No beating around the bush.
