Motivational Quotes To Keep You Going

I have been talking a lot about Early Retirement and tried my best to put my thoughts into words. I have one last thing left to conclude my attempt – to share a few encouraging, motivational quotes to keep you going. Or to get you going – wherever in life you are right now. These sayings have been left to us by wise men and women of the past and bear a great deal of wisdom. Read through them each time you are feeling blue or discouraged. There is nothing more encouraging than well said quote that hits just the right spot. Without further ado, this is the collection of motivational quotes to keep you going that I come back to often myself:

I’ve tried my best to transform my thoughts into words but found myself struggling each time. Everything makes perfect sense in my head, but trying to put it in coherent sentences was challenging. More often than not I felt like I’m not doing my thoughts a justice by failing to properly express my feelings, but I’ve tried never the less. If just one person finds encouragement, if just one person finds inspirations, if just one person changes their life for the better as a result of these words, then it was all worth it. I would like to start with my favorite quote of all. It’s the quote by Jonathan Swift who summed everything I’ve been trying to say in just nine words: “May you live all the days of your life.”
