20 uplifting quotes for hard times


When life gets me down, I like to read uplifting, motivational quotes that inspire me and give me hope that things are going to get better. I currently have one on my bathroom mirror and 3 framed on the walls in my bathroom and bedroom. Here are 20 of my favorite uplifting quotes to help you keep going when times get tough.

Keep from me, Lord, all those experiences which made Thee what Thou art! Then, let me come and dwell with Thee and fully share Thy joy!’ ” ~Neal A. Maxwell

12. “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ~Nelson Mandela

13. “First, think. Second, believe. Third, dream. And finally, dare.” ~Walt Disney

15. “I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.” ~Martha Washington

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie
