The Best Inspirational Quotes
And Inspirational Sayings Online

This collection of the best inspirational quotes is about the important things in life. All of these inspirational sayings have been carefully and thoughtfully chosen to encourage and uplift your spirit.

I firmly believe that reading and meditating on powerful, inspiring quotations has the ability to affect our lives in wonderfully positive ways.

As you read through what I consider are some of the best inspirational quotes ever spoken, choose the ones that speak to your heart. These will be the ones that have the most meaning to you, and therefore will have the most influence in your everyday life.

"There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true;
the other is to refuse to believe what is true."

~Søren Kierkegaard, Philosopher (1813-1855)

You may also want to consider collecting books of quotations and keep them near your desk for daily motivation and contemplation. Choose a book to begin with, then each day open it to a new page, read the quotation and think about how it could apply to your own reality.

You could write any really great inspiring thoughts and ideas which you come across on post-it-notes and pepper your office wall with them, surrounding yourself with some of the best inspirational quotes that you find! (And if your co-workers say anything, tell them you’re learning through osmosis!)

Another suggestion, and one that I love to use, is to buy yourself a small journal or notebook. Anytime you come across a meaningful quotation or phrase, jot it down in your own personal "best inspirational quotes book".

In that way, you can enjoy browsing through your journal when you need a hit of inspiration or perhaps just need a quote for a card, web page, letter, scrapbook, or whatever.

At the bottom of this page, you will find additional quote pages to explore:
