At the end of every tunnel, there is a light somewhere, a light of hope and reason, and a light to guide us to the safety from the dark, to outstretched hands there. These hands hold out friendship, something everyone needs, for friendship brings a wealth much more than anything money can buy, for without this wealth, many of us would just shrivel up and die. David Harris
“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
Help your old neighbor, give your seat in the subway to someone who needs it, buy a coffee for a homeless man that you see, bring flowers for your colleagues without a reason. Make someone smile, even for a brief second, and you will see how your day will change instantly for the best.

“Even though Graham and I went back to arguing and stealing socks and hiding each other's toothbrushes in the litter box, I didn't forget that Graham didn't think I needed a best friend, because either it meant he thought I was cool enough to handle everything alone or—and this was what I hoped—it meant that he was my best friend, quietly, forever, no matter what.
May we ask you a question? How often do you say, ‘Good morning, world!’ Yes, we are used to greeting our close ones in the morning, but only a few of us greet the whole world and all its creatures. Since each of us is just a tiny part of the universe, it’s necessary to feel the unity with it. Read the quotes below to find out what other people think about it.
When in the company of your best friend, you can fully be yourself – without having to wonder about what others may think of you. And that’s where so much of the fun in a friendship arises from. Similarly, no one has ever those absolutely funny and hilarious moments with their bosses or other acquaintances. For this reason, having a best friend can prove to be the source of a lot of unforgettably funny experiences.
Eventually you will have to decide whether you focus your attention on the problem, or possible ways to rise above it. This decision will either make or break your success. Only those who cultivate the willingness to rise above everything that tries to drag them down will advance in life. Whining and complaining about misfortunes will not lead you anywhere.

“Maman told me that every time you smile, a very tiny bit of the smile stays stuck to your face, so as you get older and older your face starts to show all the tiny bits of all your smiles and you look like you are smiling all the time, even when you are just thinking about what to have for breakfast. She said, also, that if you frown a lot then the frown sticks to your face instead. That way when you are old you have a very frowny face and look cross all the time and people are scared of you.” – Claire King

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.-Monica Baldwin
A small but profound change in your perspective can do all the difference. Should we be asking ourselves the question who is allowing us to strive for excellence? Or should we rather become proactive and start taking what we want? If you choose the first option, you will always depend upon others and their approval. But with the mental attitude of “Who’s going to stop me,” you free yourself from the dependency on others.
There is a difference between being successful, and feeling successful.  Trust me, you want the latter.  Success should be accompanied by a feeling of humility that only the best of the best are capable of.  Harry Truman said, "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit," and that is the selfless attitude that true success stories are built from.
Inspirational indeed. I’m a 17-year-old student and struggling through my final exams that will determine whether or not I get into university. All the quotes are helpful, it gives one hope when hope is perched at the window about to leave. I made a lot of mistakes with regards to studying, but have come to the realization that none of that matters, all that does matter is the present moment and whether we to choose to say yes or no, every moment is an opportunity. Here are a few quotes to add to this collection:
63. The fishing is best where the fewest go, and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone else is aiming for base hits. There is just less competition for bigger goals. If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.
“When you find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stand in front of you when other’s cast stones, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who will hold your hand when your sick, who thinks your pretty without makeup, the one who turns to his friends and say, ‘that’s her’, the one that would bear your rejection because losing you means losing his will to live, who kisses you when you screw up, watches the stars and names one for you and will hold and rock that baby for hours so you can sleep…..you marry him all over again.”
“I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

All too often we stop pursuing a goal as soon as we encounter difficulties. These challenges are not only placing a great burden upon our shoulders, but they also make it a real struggle to move forward. Fighting day in and day out for your mission can be really tiring. However, we must not allow mental and physical tiredness to stop us from pursuing our dreams.
We all remember the wisdom Barney Stinson shared with us by saying a lot of funny, motivational and sometimes silly statements, like this one, ‘When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead, True story.’ Yeah, we wish it was easy as that, right? Anyways, if you still need something encouraging to read in order to start a day the way it’s supposed to be, take a look at some short GM quotes.
BFF, BBF, pal, buddy, my partner in crime – no matter how you call your best friend, he or she is the only person you can trust your secrets, tell the stupidest jokes, share your fears with and a bunch of other stuff you can do only with this person.

So, don’t be afraid to say ‘thank you’ to your bestie, especially when you have some great BFF quotes to choose from for this purpose.
