The Quest for Quotes: The Apps, The Books, The Words

Hi everyone!

For this week, I decided that perhaps it was time to throw out a whole bunch of quotes! After a lot of blog posts revolving around big ideas, why not bring it back to something simple and sweet?

Thus, for this blog post, I’m writing down all of the best quotes ever! I’m also sharing my favorite apps and books that have them. Write the quotes and/or resources down somewhere if any of them resonate with you. Quotes and precepts are hung all around my room, and they are just the daily reminders that I need.

P.S. Along with the post, I’ll drop some of my favorite pictures from countries that I have visited. I think they will fit well with the theme of inspiration!

Apps

Speaking of daily reminders… In case you want to have quotes delivered straight to the home screen of your phone every day, check out the Motivation App. It’s a simply an app that just has quotes. If you want an incredible inspirational newsletter to your mailbox twice a week on Mondays and Friday, check out the Prsuit newsletter.

Lastly, if you want some spiritual guidance to come your way daily, check out the Bible App which sends either emails/pictures/notifications with Bible verses.

Books
