10 Quotes for When Times are Hard


I live by quotes. I can usually find a quote to fit every kind of situation. For some reason, I find quotes to not only be inspirational, but to be grounding. Real individuals were able to push through their obstacles, therefore so can I! Because I have quite the collection, I thought I would share some quotes that fit different scenarios.

For when you are feeling anxious:

“Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles. It empties today of its strength” – Corrie ten Boom

For when you are feeling overwhelmed/stressed:

“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.” – Fred Rogers

For when you are feeling alone:

What a lovely surprise to finally discover how unlonely being alone can be.” – Ellen Burstyn

For when you are feeling sad:

Sad things happen. They do. But we don’t need to live sad forever.” – Mattie Stepanek

For when you need to feel motivated:

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and loved more than you know” – Winnie the Pooh

For when you feel that there is something in your way:

“If you don’t like how things are change it! You’re not a tree” – Jim Rohn

For when you are feeling angry:

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of  throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned – Buddha

For when you feel like you are a failure:

“It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all- in which you fail by default” – J.K. Rowling

For when you lose a friendship/relationship:

“Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company” – Booker T. Washington

For when you feel like giving up:

Hope will never be silent.” – Harvey Milk

Note: I did my best to verify that these quotes matched these authors. However, like the wise Abraham Lincoln once said “You can’t believe everything you read on the Internet” (If you are in the mood for a good laugh, just Google that quote and look at the pictures. A lot of funny variations of it).
