Life quotes are a powerful method for getting us through … well, life! We’re all little specks on this spinning planet, living each crazy day we call life (forgive me, I’m the furthest thing from a philosopher). But I have compiled a great list of quotes about life from philosophers, artists, athletes, and more who can put better into words how we feel about life!

If you’ve found yourself asking, “Well what can I do with these life quotes?”, look no further! While I may not have majored in philosophy, I’m all about creativity! The easiest thing to do with these quotes is to write them down to keep them close, on your desk or locker for example! Or take it to the next level like the life champion you are and print them out!

A short quote on a 4x6 makes for perfect desk or bedside table decorations to start your day with a pep in your step! Or turn them into a bigger photo poster or canvas print to make a bigger impact with your quote! I think this would make some seriously inspiring dorm decor, or even a fun way to spice up the entryway in your home or apartment!

Personally, I’m a digital person so I love throwing a quote on a phone background or desktop wallpaper for a little boost of motivation whenever I open my phone. Or heck, take it even further and use them as Instagram captions or even a social media post (these are perfect for the aspiring LinkedIn influencer!).
