8 Inspiring Quotes to Push You Through Spring Semester

It’s just around midterm season, so the stress of spring semester is slathered on particularly thick. The last thing you want to think about is school work — the constant in your life that never seems to go away. It’s like the moment when you finally finish washing all of your dishes just for dirty ones to pile up, as if you hadn’t already washed the dishes at all. You’re always tired from all of the work you have to do, and your appearance proves it. Your friends commented on your lack of sleep the one day you decided not to wear makeup. So, it’s about time you need a good pick-me-up. These inspiring quotes should get you through this seemingly long semester until summer. Live by them!


1. “Successful people are not gifted; they just work hard, then succeed on purpose”  -G.K. Nielson


2. “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” –William Shakespeare​


3. “Courage, dear heart.” -C.S. Lewis​


4. “Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” -Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones​


5. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.” -Ferris Bueller


6. “Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but you’ve actually been planted.” -Christine Caine​


7. “With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” -Oscar Wilde​


8. “Whatever you are, be a good one.” -Abraham Lincoln​

Try a little experiment. For two weeks, pick a different quote every day to say to yourself out loud in front of a mirror. Ask yourself, how do I feel after saying that quote? Why did I pick that quote? Why is this quote important to me? You’d be surprised with the answers you’ll come up with; I think these quotes will help you reflect on how you’re doing each day. Remember, live by them.
