Inspirational Quotes From Successful Authors


You must have wondered by now, “Why does this girl keep posting quotes?”. That’s simply cause I love them! When going gets tough, when all I see is confusion and uncertainty, many inspirational quotes have come handy. We are humans after all, being unsure about future is a must-have trait of every human-being. (Otherwise that person would be God Himself, don’t you think? Nyah-Nyah). I’m not ashamed of it and neither should you be. As one of my friends say, “It’s not a bad thing”. But, dwelling on it is!

When I say dwelling on it, I mean losing hope and faith to an extent that you INTENTIONALLY ruin things for yourself. Do a favor on your future-self and have some patience and faith. Draw positivity, inspiration and motivation from others. If there is none in your circle (probably that’s the problem!), doesn’t mean you should not seek the same from strangers.or successful people. And today I have briefed some of the sayings by famous authors. All the rant aside, read the below inspirational quotes (some are taken from the book of the respective authors) and share in the comments below if you have come across your favorite stick-on-the-wall worthy ones.
