How is one supposed to pick just one quote? I think if you are moving forward in life that the quote that prevails most should change depending on the situation and/or stage in life that you are in. One that I’ve been thinking about lately to keep me encouraged actually comes from TV - namely, the 11th Doctor.
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant."
It helps me to also remember a biblical quote from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 - “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." (NIV)
Every situation, good or bad, can be a learning experience. Therefore, be thankful and know that something good is always to be found nearby. It may even be closer than you think.
