The problem with most quotes is that we read them but quickly forget them. When you see a good quote that “speaks” to you, write it down! Write it in your diary, post it on your fridge or carry it in your wallet so you can refer to it regularly.

Reading a funny inspirational or motivational quote only once does not help. It has to become a part of your belief system in order for it to work and it can only become that if you believe it to be correct and refer to it often.
