Inspirational Quotes about Hope

These inspirational quotes about hope are for those dark days when we desperately need some encouragement. When the echoes of the past weigh us down.

On such days everything looks bleak and it is very tempting to give up. We tell ourselves that it is too difficult and that we do not have the strength to face our demons . The negative voices in our head tell us that there is no way we will ever heal. Just like victims who suffer from learned helplessness, we lose hope and stop even trying.

The problem with this is that healing is not passive. It is a journey that requires us to take active steps every day towards our goal. No matter how small the steps are, and how many times we fall flat on our face, it is important to get up again. It is critical that we keep ourselves motivated to overcome what we are struggling with. That is the only way we will ever truly heal, letting our past go and putting it behind us.

Whenever I have a bad day and I feel like giving up, I read the following quotes about hope and they never fail to inspire me. I hope that you will find them as helpful as I do.
