Positive Quotes for Inspiration and Motivation

I’ve come across a few positive quotes in my life, some of which have made such an impact that I’m contemplating getting one tattooed on my arm. This will be my first ever tattoo, so I can’t take my choice of quote lightly.

Choosing a favourite

I’m currently torn between two favourites, but rather than revealing these, I thought it would be nice to see which quote is most popular with my readers. You’re helping me make a big decision here, so make sure to let me know your favourite in the comments 🙂

1. Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of, who do the things that no one can imagine

The imitation game positive quotes

I came across this quote when I watched The Imitation Game. For those who haven’t seen it, the story evolves around Alan Turing and his quest to decrypt Nazi intelligence codes. Turing is played by the talented Benedict Cumberbatch and he delivers a cracking performance in this. It’s great for those who like thrillers and spy dramas.

2. Never let anyone treat you like a yellow starburst. You are a pink starburst.

I came across this one on Twitter. It was tweeted by @flamingcopper and it honestly is one of those positive quotes that left me feeling amused all day. I’d like to think that those reading this as a tattoo would have that same happy feeling. Also, who doesn’t like starbursts!

3. You can only be beautiful if it starts in your heart


This is another quote I came across on Twitter and it was tweeted by @beautysubreview. Not only is this quote lovely, it’s something I genuinely believe. It also sums up the kind of beautiful that is most important to me.

4. It was the pure Language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time.

Love positive quotesThis is one of my favourite positive quotes from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It’s a lovely way to describe the meaning of love and is personal to me because my fiancé loves anything science related. I mentioned in one of my previous blogposts that my fiancé doesn’t describe things in the same romantic way as I do. I feel like this quote is both romantic and scientific, which sums up both of our personalities in one.

5. Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful of your life.


I love this quote from Mark Twain! It’s one of those positive quotes that we should all live by as we’ll never know which day will be our last. My fiancé and I have two rules. The first, is to never go to bed on an argument. The second, is to make sure “I love you” is the last thing we say to each other before we leave for work or go to sleep.

Pick your favourite positive quotes


It would be great to hear your thoughts. I really am undecided and could do with a bit of steer. The idea of a tattoo is quite exciting and it’s definitely something I want to cross off my list.
