10 Quotes to Keep Your Inner Fire Burning


Sometimes you need a lil' nudge in the right direction to keep you on the straight and narrow.

And what's more powerful than words? They have the power to heal and inform, they are what we turn to when we need to express our feelings and love. Words are literally all around us every second of every day: "I hear the secrets that you keep...when you're talking in your sleep." Word.

We hope these particular words will help you in the eleventh hour, keep you going, redefine your motivation. Bookmark 'em, cut 'em out and hang 'em up, copy them down, memorize them, do what you need to do, just make sure you let them catch you if you fall:

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." ~John Lennon
