A Glad Quote When You Need One

A glad quote can uplift you.

A glad quote can uplift you.

What makes a glad quote so uplifting? Perhaps it’s their light-hearted treatment of life that puts a smile to our face. Or, maybe, it’s that kernel of truth they possess that connects with own understandings.

Ever since I was around eleven or twelve, I’ve been fascinated by quotes and sayings. For me, reading a glad quote was enriching and took me out of my childhood situation into a realm of possibilities.

Infinitely more than clichéd sayings, they have the potential to nourish and encourage. So a glad quote is like an idea device, dormant until you or I open our eyes and speak it into our mind.

Suddenly, that simple little glad quote you read comes to life, inspiring you to think and live well as it enthuses you in the process.

Which is why I’ve gathered some more to enjoy. Here is a fresh glad quote collection that speaks to me. My hope is that they will speak to you too…
