I’ve come across some AMAZING quotes lately and I just keep going back to them for little reminders of how to discipline my mind and foster a lasting calmness. I keep really special quotes on my phone and refer to them when I need to recenter, so I wanted to share my latest favorites with you guys. What better way to kick off the week? 🙂
As you may have seen in my Lovin’ Lately post recently, I just read this incredible little book “Zen and the Art of Happiness” by Chris Prentiss. There were so many powerful quotes and messages throughout that book that continue to play in my mind, so I thought I’d gather a bunch for some Monday motivation for you!
By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist, we create it. —Nikos Kazantzakis
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. —Tecumseh
Those who don’t believe in the magic will never find it. —Roald Dahl
When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky. —Buddha
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world. —Buddha
Which one was your favorite? One that gave me chills when I read it a few days ago was the Chris Prentiss quote. It is so simple but it just hit me so hard. I wish you all a positive and peaceful week! <3
I love all of them. Going through a difficult time in literally every area of my life (family, community, studies, friends, etc) and I NEED quotes like this <3
I’m sorry to hear that. Great quotes (and books!) pack a big punch in tough times <3
Thank you xxx
Awesome! I love anything by Buddha or Rumi…
Thank you! Yes, me too! 🙂
I like the Roald Dahl quote because it stresses the active search. Seems to me I’ve used the quote in one of my posts. 🙂
That’s a great point. Another simple, but powerful one.
My favourite is the Nikos Kazantzakis’ one, which I already knew from long ago (and which I do know is absolutely true!). Also the last one, from Buddha, saying more or less the same… Thanks for sharing them all 🙂 ❤
Yes!! Anything by Buddha is just amazing <3
I like them all. Especially the ones from Roald Dahl and Carlos castaneda 🙂
That Carlos Castaneda one was very special to me. So so true <3
Nice!! I really like the last one 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Amazing quotes, needed those today! Xx
Thank you, so happy to hear that! <3
Love the quotes, but I REALLY love that hat! xx.
Ooh thank you! 🙂 It’s Brixton.
oh, I loved these…. thanks for that!! I loved them all, but it really hit me, the Chris Prentiss one, I love that one. It’s soooo true!! I was contemplating going to mexico with my daughter who is studying in another city and meeting her in mexico for 5 days. It’s only 5 days, but that’s all we got, and we should take it because there’s nothing else. Life will just continue to fly by and next thing you know, it’ll be September again!!! What else is there in life, if you can’t meet up with the ones you love!!?? 🙂
Thank you! Oooh maybe it’s a sign for you then! I never tire of quotes about being present, that’s all there is!

“With our thoughts, we make the world”👌👌
Nice one, love it. <3
Love the quotes especially the last one.
Hey. Some nice quotes in there. I read a good book called The Four Agreements so,e time ago now that are all about choosing happiness and how to condition yourself to the world around. It is by Don Miguel Ruiz and is well worth a look…simple yet effective,
That is SO funny that you say that as I’m reading that book right now! I love it and was actually thinking of writing a post just dedicated to it because it’s THAT amazing!
There must be a word to describe this coincidence…spooky! Glad you are enjoying it.
Those who don’t believe in the magic will never find it. —Roald Dahl has long been a favorite.
Enjoyed your post.

Thank you so much! ❤
Love all the quotes 😆
Thank you! 🙂
All of these quotes are so inspirational, but the one that really resonated with me is the Carlos Castaneda one; I spend so much time worrying and making myself miserable, while I should be spending that time being positive and making my dreams come true. This quote is a great reminder of that!
I think that one is so cool. Of course it’s the same amount of energy so make it positive! 🙂
1. I like the Huacha’a quote.
2. You are so beautiful. You vibrate happiness and smile
I love this post! Thank you for sharing it. favorite is Tecumseh’s quote.
You should read the whole poem if you haven’t yet. The Tecumseh Poem.
Oh I haven’t read the whole poem, thank you for letting me know. I will definitely give it a read! 🙂
