“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.” – Lemony Snicket

A great way to start the day is with an uplifting and positive message.


Positive messages inspire us and offer hope and the possibility of a happier life. They lift our spirits and provide perspective.


They help us navigate life's challenges and remind us to be grateful and humble as we wander down life's path.


The quotes represent a broad range of thinkers, including a Stoic philosopher and Roman emperor and several technology and industry leaders. And many voices in between.


My hope is that these quotes will inspire you to start your day with a positive outlook and a productive mindset.
