The best short inspirational quotes about life with some humor


A person can be on the right track in life, but they’re sure to be run over if they just sit there. And while it’s true that some situations appear insurmountable, overcoming those obstacles begins with taking the first step in addressing a problem.

Short inspirational quotes provide a clarity that helps people realize that there will always be brighter days in their life. And, hopefully, provide them with laughs that allows them to look beyond some of the stupid things they’ve done. The thoughts may be brief, but they usually provide enough encouragement to prompt people in making huge changes in their lives.

And with this motivation, people can achieve things they thought were never possible. People can also begin to laugh at themselves. The senior who is showing signs of aging can find humor with the fact that their shortcomings make them more charming. And lovers can chuckle at the stupid things the other partner does that only make a man or woman love their significant partner even more.

Life goes by quickly. And a person that doesn’t take the time to learn from inspirational quotes that motivate them and sometimes provide a laugh or two just may miss out on life if they don’t slow down and learn from these quotes.
