> 15 Quotes That Will Remind You To Never Give Up, Even In The Darkest Times

“What am I doing?”  “Where is my life headed?” “I feel like the pain will never stop,' “I have no hope,” “I’m desperate”…

Almost every one of us must have used these sentences at least once in our lifetime. If you’re going through difficult times or feeling hopeless, just remember that it’s time for a change. Don’t forget that life is a gift, and you should make the best of it. No matter how hard that sounds, you can always change your life. Or, at least you can “try” to change it, rather than just doing nothing, feeling desperate and waiting for the change to come by itself.

All you need is a little motivation and courage! Here are 15 quotes to inspire you, that will encourage you to take the first step to change what you’re not happy with!

1. "You need to claim the events in your life to make yourself yours." — Anne-Wilson Schaef

Remember, you’re valuable and everything you do -good or bad- belongs to you, because these are what make you the person you are.

2. "When you are feeling depreciated, angry, or drained, it is a sign that other people are not open to your energy." — Sanaya Roman

Don’t assume people know your expectations. Maybe the reason they don’t understand you is that you are being unclear. Who knows?

3. “I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” — Henry David Thoreau

Don’t just sit there and wait!

4. “Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” — Eddie Cantor

Spare more time to do what you really love, rather than getting lost in the ambitions  and struggles of daily life.

5. "We will discover the nature of our particular creative genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other people’s models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural creative channel to open." — Shakti Gawain

Who you really are is more important than the models you’re desperately trying to conform to!

6. "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger." — Friedrich Nietzsche

Everything happens for a reason. Even if you don’t believe in this, learn to take lessons from all your experiences. Just don’t forget that a failure isn’t the end of life.

7. "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost." — Martha Graham

Don’t put off the change. And don’t ever try to escape from it!

8. "It's not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It's because we dare not venture that they are difficult." — Seneca

Maybe right now is the right time to take action!

9. "In a dark time, the eye begins to see." — Theodore Roethke

A solution may salute you when you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom!

10. "True life is lived when tiny changes occur." — Leo Tolstoy

11. "Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most." — Fyodor Dostoyevski

As long as you keep making excuses, you’re your worst enemy...

12. "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." — Carl Gustav Jung

The most important thing is to be able to face and discover your true self, and then to make peace with it. How are you supposed to expect others to understand you if you don’t even try it for yourself?

13. "In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity" — Albert Einstein

14. “How often – even before we began – have we declared a task ‘impossible’? And how often have we construed a picture of ourselves as being inadequate? . . . A great deal depends upon the thought patterns we choose and on the persistence with which we affirm them.” — Piero Ferruci

15. “The more you talk and think about it, the further astray you wander from the truth. Stop talking and thinking, and there is nothing you will not be able to know.” — Zen Paradigması

There’s also an old saying that goes “time is the best medicine,” but people usually take it the wrong way and use it as an excuse to do nothing about their life. But if you distress yourself for the things that are completely out of your control, wait and let the universe do the job. Nothing ever stays the same anyway!
