10 Quotes to Share

Good friends seem to know exactly what to say, how to listen, and how to make you feel a little better during a difficult time. And sometimes, knowing exactly what to say means sharing words of inspiration from people who just might have things figured out a bit more than we do. 

That’s why we love passing along these day-brightening quotes— from making someone laugh to reminding them that they’ve got what it takes, we’ve got something for everyone in need of a brighter day. 

1. “As soon as I saw you, I knew a grand adventure was about to happen.”

– Winnie the Pooh


Winnie the Pooh Quote

Wise words from everyone favorite bear and perfect to share when a friend is venturing on to a new unfamiliar road. 

2. “If I had a power color, it would definitely be sparkle."

- Landon Brinkley


If I had a power couple quote 
We love sending this mantra to a friend who is battling “imposter syndrome” or finally daring to embrace their unique ability to sparkle. 

3. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

6. “Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.”

— Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Harry Potter Quote

We all encounter moments of darkness, but we love this reminder to let the light in - even when things feel hard.
