“A Quote A Day Keeps the Blues Away”

We all need a little pick-me-up sometimes. While everyone has different methods of coping with difficulties, words of inspiration and encouragement are often an effective way of lifting spirits. Quotes That Will Change Your Life, a book edited by Russ Kick, is comprised of inspiring, genuine, and sometimes vividly raw quotes that deal with matters ranging from love to life to personal well-being.

Hand-picked from this handy collection are some of my personal favorites that can do a lot to not only get us going but also keep us going, no matter what life throws our way.​
