A collection of quotes that will help you get through tough times in your life.


We all get caught up in that never-ending cycle of problem and just bad situations in some period of our life. It happens to everybody. From millionaires to poor people, not a single person is immune to this. It is important to understand that we are not the only one having a tough time, there are a lot of other people facing difficulties. What is even more important is to understand that you must never give up. Don’t stop fighting, don’t stop pushing, don’t ever stop moving forward and improving yourself.

You can fall down, but you just can’t allow yourself to stay down and just give up on everything. You only have this one life and no matter how hard it might get, or how hard it is right now, you must keep on fighting for yourself, for your dreams and hopes. Because if you give up on fighting that’s it for you, you’re finished. No one is going to fight your battles, no one is going to handle your problems for you. You and only you can win at this game called “your life”.

And I know it gets hard from time to time. There comes a time when you just feel you’ve got nothing to live for, a time when you feel like the world is ending for you… And during this times you have to stand up and show the world what you are made from. Show everybody that you can’t be permanently knocked on the ground. Show them that you are going to keep coming back stronger and stronger every time, until the last breath leaves your dying body. That’s how tough you must be.

And I’m going to share something to help you achieve that. I’ll share with you something that will give you the will and strength to fight every single obstacle that stands in your way.

This is a collection of my most favourite motivational tough times quotes that I find helpful when facing major issues in life and tough and rough times in general. Sometimes all you need is just a reminder of how strong you really are, and these quotes are exactly what you need in order to just feel strong enough once again. Get your head up, get your hopes up, get that beautiful smile back on you face, feel your strength, feel your hot blood rushing through your veins… And FIGHT! Fight everyone and everything. I know you can do it! I just know you are more than capable to be a winner.

This collection of motivational quotes consists of 40 picture quotes I collected, hand-picked, and made for you guys. I hope you will find them helpful and enjoy them. Also share them with your friends and members of your family, you never know who might need them. I wish you all the best and sincerely hope that you will overcome every obstacle that stands in the way of you being truly happy.
