Because sometimes you need a little motivation and inspiration... 

Here are some of my favorite inspirational quotes:

You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.”
— James Baldwin
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.
— Mother Teresa

Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible.
— T.E. Lawrence
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
