Favorite Inspirational Quotes | Leopard + Burgundy


Another blank page in this 365 journal of life. Are you making the most of it?

A huge part of this blog is promoting motivation, or as I life to say, motivational lifestyle. For that reason I wanted to share with you some of my favorite inspirational quotes.  We'll begin with one that is the quote for me, so much so  that it's in my email signature lol.

"May the limitations of love not cast a spell on the serious ambitions of my mind." ~José Martí

I came across this quote when I was a teenager and reading En El Tiempo de las Mariposas by Julia Alvarez (In the Time of the Butterflies) and I instantly fell in love with it. It's deep man, really deep.  If you think about the things we give up when we're in love...shoot. And I'm not just talking about love, love, but also anything that distracts us from achieving a goal.  Let that marinate in your soul for a bit....

 I also love these:

"The heart surrenders everything to the moment. The mind judges and holds back." ~Ram Dass

"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do.  But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength." ~Unknown

 "Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true." ~Leon J. Suenes

"Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I see can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be." ~Karen Ravn

 And I can not forget the foundation of all inspiration:
"Todo lo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece." ~Filipenses 4:13 (Phillippians 4:13)
