Let’s face it: transformation can be exhausting at times. We all have weeks when we’d like to tell personal growth to go stick itself where the sun doesn’t shine. To help out during these rough patches, we’ve compiled some inspirational quotes to help keep you going when all you want to do is hide under the covers with a bottle of Barefoot and Bubbly:

 

In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.” – Maya Angelou

 

“When she tranformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.” – Dean Jackson

 

“There are no short cuts to any place worth going.” – Beverly Sills

 

“You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Andre Gide

 

“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” – BB King

 

“And when you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coehlo

 

“Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation.” – Alan Cohen

 

“We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made of us.”– Jean-Paul Sartre

 

“Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it became a butterfly.” – Taoist Proverb

 

“Let them gossip about you as a caterpillar. They will soon look upon you and see a butterfly, dancing among the flowers, showing them how to fly.” – Kirstie Ganobsik

  2. “When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.” – Dean Jackson

    Love that one!

  3. Love the inspiring quotes. Everyday reminders are just what we need to keep positive and hopeful about the moment and the future. Thank you for sharing.
