11 Comforting, Supportive, Reassuring and Encouraging Quotes
I have been collecting what I like to call encouraging quotes for quite some time now. It seems that many people are going through difficult times these days and it is nice to have something to fall back on, some words of inspiration, motivation or humor that can help us just get through the day sometimes.
It is amazing how much of an effect a quotation or saying can have on people. Some words can be life changing, like an epiphany, eureka moment or wake up call. Words can and do change lives as this proverb suggests.
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” ~ Proverbs 25.11

“A small trouble is like a pebble.
Hold it too close to your eye and it fills the

Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true setting,
just one more tiny bump on the pathway of life.” ~ Celia Luce
