Top 10 Quotes I Live By

Like a lot of people, I love a good quote. Most of them pertain to writing since that’s my primary job. But I also appreciate many more quotes that have nothing to do with writing. They may concern hard work, positivity, success and so much more. But the main point is that I enjoy them.

That’s why I’ve decided to share the top 10 quotes that I live by. Perhaps they’ll inspire you and/or make you feel better in some way. So without any further ado, here they are!

  1. “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele
  2. “Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” – Helen Keller
  3. “I was born with a fierce need for independence.” – Michelle Williams
  4. “Believing in yourself and having confidence gives you outer strength.” – Nikki Bella
  5. “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” – Stephen King
  6. “The nature of how we are as human beings is that we’re much more interested in being critical rather than praising something.” – Ellie Goulding
  7. “Stories and narratives are one of the most powerful things in humanity. They’re devices for dealing with the chaotic danger of existence.” – Wes Craven
  8. “Different is good, and being different is what makes us stand out in the world.” – Natalya Neidhart
  9. “I think ambition can be having something that you’re good at and love to do.” – Hilary Duff
  10. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe


That’s that! Granted, there are several more that I could’ve included here. But these are the ones that I remember best and also make me smile the most.

What are some great quotes that you live by?
