Quotes for
the Journey
Supplement your journey through life
with the wise thoughts and words of
advice from some of the most caring
and compassionate people who have
lived, people who have left us great
words of love and peace in the hopes
that their words will touch our lives
and help to live more fully
with more fulfillment!

Since we know that journeys tend to be long and sometimes trying, we've already done much weeding out for you.  Inside this site, you'll find only quotes that are positive, uplifting, and/or thought-provoking.  We know that you don't want to carry TOO much with you, so we wanted to send you along with only the best of the best.

Norman Vincent Peale said, "To a large extent our lives are made by thoughts and ideas.  We become finally what we think.  Over the years the things we read and hear and hold in our thoughts condition our minds and ultimately our lives.  If we put into our consciousness that which inspires and uplifts, it stands to reason that we shall tend to become inspired and uplifted persons. . . . We determine the type of thing we shall feed to our minds."  We agree with him, and we want to share with you our collection of inspiring and uplifting thoughts so that you can make them your own, in your own ways!

We updated significantly in 2015, adding more than 2,500 new quotations (including sixteen brand-new pages), which put our total at well over 9,000!  And we've made sure that they're quotations that mean something, that can help us to think about life and living in positive ways.  For 2016, we'll be adding second pages to many of the topics for which we have a significant number of quotations (and we've finished that sooner than expected, so we'll have to find something else to add now!).
