It’s that time of the month for me to choose an inspirational quote to help get me and my readers through the month. We could all use a little inspiration every now and again. You never know. Maybe that one saying is what someone needs to hear to help get them through a situation, express how they are feeling, or just to give them more motivation they need. Maybe it’s just a cool quote that brings a smile to your face. Whatever the reason, I hope you enjoy the following quotes from me and the DGI community.
Inspirational Quotes for December
Before I share with you the quote of the month, let’s review last month’s quote.
My inspirational quote for November was: “I cried because I have no shoes, until I met a man with no feet.”
My inspirational quote for December is: “When you’re happy, you enjoy the music. When you’re sad, you understand the lyrics.” – Frank Ocean.
I think this definitely has some truth to it. A lot of times when I’m happy, I’m enjoying the music and the way it makes me feel. I do admit that sometimes I am happy because I listen to and understand the lyrics. But, by and large, I agree with the quote. When I’m said, I definitely pay attention to the lyrics of some songs. It’s probably dependent on the song and how I’m feeling, but I would generally agree with this quote. I hadn’t really heard it until recently, and wanted to share it. Hopefully, you like it is as well.
By the way, there’s a possibility that Frank Ocean didn’t first say it, but I think he did at one point.
Inspirational Quotes from the DGI Community
Here we go. These are the inspirational quotes from the DGI Community last month. As always, if you want your quotes to appear in the section below, just leave me your quote in the comment section before publication of the next edition of the inspirational quotes of the month.
Dividends Diversify – “I had the blues because I had no shoes. Until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet.” – Dale Carnegie’s book, Would You Take A Million Dollars For What You Have. This is a modification from the quote of the month for November and one that I hadn’t heard before. But, it’s also one that Tom from Dividend Diversity has thought about for years. Tom also threw in “our life is what our thoughts make it” by Marcus Aurelius. Thanks Tom.
Handy Millennial – “A tree does not grow stronger without wind.” Good one HM. I hadn’t heard this one before either.
Dividend Daze – “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey. I got to admit that my mom is a huge Oprah Winfrey fan. With quotes like these, I guess I can see why.
Passive Canadian Income – “You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust the dots will somehow connect in your future.” – Steve Jobs. This is a stark reminder that it’s important to remember and learn from our past in better hopes for a brighter future.
Dividend Geek – “The beauty of owning the market is that you eliminate individual stock risk, you eliminate market sector risk, and you eliminate manager risk.” – Jack Bogle. Dividend Geek brought it home with a quote from the founder of The Vanguard Group, and a reminder of the importance of diversification in our portfolios.
There you have it. Hopefully one or more of the above quotes will help inspire you to get you through the last month of the year! As a reminder, if you want your favorite quote included in this monthly post, just leave it in the comment section below.
