I love love love a good quote !!

Here I’m  sharing some of the quotes that have struck a chord or inspired me in some way.

Quotes… inspire, they motivate, they stimulate, they can be timeless and find new ways to challenge us & our thinking, they can sometimes manage to distil complicated concepts and ideas, they can drill down to the core of a concept, an idea, or value.  This, for me, means they can make great jumping off places for journaling.

I used many quotes in the three free Journaling projects which I have run in the past.  If you missed any of these, you’ll find a free PDF version of each of the Journal projects in the Free Stuff section of my web site.

Below you will find a selection of some of my favourite quotes and I’ll be adding a new one every week which you could use as a journaling prompt if it speaks to you. Or you might want to find out a little more about the author of the quote.

Occasionally, in place of a quote I may share an image instead . As Carl Jung said….”The soul speaks in image”.

An image can speak a thousand words and each one of us will respond to an image in our own way, making images another great jumping off place for working in our journals, either responding to the image with words, writing, or with an image of our own.
