A moat can be a pretty good thing. It can be lovely. It keeps rodents away from the castle. It can have fish in it. Even fish that talk. … If you give people access, they take advantage. My phone would ring 75 times in a row. Finally, I would pick it up and say, ‘Who the hell is this?’ ‘Oh, hi! I’m calling from so-and-so’s office…’ What kind of person would ever, ever let the phone ring 75 times? And I guess that’s when I started thinking: I can do without these people. Bill Murray

Here’s the best inspirational quotes we’ve seen to make you feel good no matter how many times you read it, and at any point during the day. This would be one that you’d want to memorize so that you always have it in your mind. It’s also a great one to say to someone you love when they’re feeling down or having a bad day because they’re unhappy about the way they look. We place so much importance on looks that it’s easy to feel not not so special, unloved, and imperfect. This quote helps fix that.
Here is a definition of both success and happiness that seems to resonate with something deep inside the human spirit. So many times it seems success and happiness defy definition, but really you’d have to say you’re successful if you’re getting what you want. So many people get what they want but aren’t happy, which means that when they got what they want they found out it wasn’t enough, or wasn’t what they thought it would be. Be successful and happy by wanting what you get, and getting what you want.
One of the more famous quotes of Eleanor Roosevelt, this is definitely true and will help greatly in becoming the woman that you want to be. Instead of placing the blame on someone else for making you feel a certain way, take responsibility for letting them make you feel that way. This isn’t just true for feelings of inferiority, but for any negative feeling, sad, frustrated, disappointed, etc. You’re the one that is in control of how you feel, and others can’t bring you down unless you let them.
If you have children, or if you have ever been a child, you know that friendships can be hard, and great friendships can be hard to find. Learning to share your favorite toys, taking turns, and saying that you are sorry is all part of the process. As we navigate our way through middle school, we learn more about being a good friend. What it feels like to have a friend stick up for you in a crowd, to hold you a spot at the lunch table, and to tell you when you have something stuck in your braces. Sometimes those first best friends are with you into adulthood, and sometimes our friends change as we grow and also change. We all seek to find that real friend who will be with us through thick and thin. She tells you when you can find a more flattering pair of jeans, help you find the courage to quit a job that you hate going to, and loves you enough to tell you when the boyfriend you are chasing after, is no good for you. How lucky we are if we have found a best friend.
