Begin at once to live and count each separate day as a separate life. – Seneca

Here are 10 quotes that will inspire you to take action and live life to the fullest:

1. It’s Never Too Late

It is never too late to be what you might have been. – George Eliot


2. Have Faith

It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark. – Howard Ruff

3. Reveal Your Character

Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself. – James Allen

4. It’s Always Your Choice

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice. – Wayne Dyer


5. Really Live

Every man dies; not every man really lives. – William Ross Wallace

6. Don’t Be Afraid

Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin. – Grace Hansen

7. Make Your Own Choices

Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others’ choices make us. – Richie Norton


8. Enjoy Every Moment

Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go. – Mandy Hale

9. Thrive with Passion

The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion and compassion and humor and style and generosity and kindness. – Maya Angelou

10. Throw off the Bowlines
