When I was a teenager my mom was a teacher and she hated to have to be outside in the cold a few days a week for playground watch during the New York winters. The teachers would have to rotate days to watch the kids during recess. She told me that what kept her going was the famous quote, “This too shall pass.” It was her way to know she could endure things and that the condition wouldn’t be permanent. Reading quotes is an excellent way to change your mindset, gain inspiration and change your state of mind.

Turn to quotes when you feel discouraged, alone or may be heading into a state of craving. They REALLY can pull you out of the tricks that your mind plays on you! Reading famous quotations helps you break certain mental habits. One liners can change your mood completely. For instance, many people find that the quote, “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” by Nietzsche very helpful. When you read a quote not only are you connected to the depth of an author, but also the whole community of people that have received support from the saying. In addition, many times we can’t read a whole book at work or when we feel stressed. But everyone can take a few minutes to read a few quotes and reflect upon them.
Here’s an interesting quote on addiction from C.S. Lewis ,”A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is…. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in.”
Whitney Mays said, “At some point, your will dies. At some point, your addiction has a whole other plan for you.”
“At bottom is the best soil to sow and grow something new again. In that sense, hitting bottom, while extremely painful, is also the sowing ground.” -Anonymous
