Inspirational quotes for online studentsBeing an online college student can be difficult and stressful. As you learn and dedicate yourself to your years of study, it is best to find a sense of self and purpose first. Although it takes personal work and effort to become who you want to become, having a benchmark you want to hit is always a good place to start. One of the best ways to set this benchmark is to find good quotes to live by and to internalize them into your daily life.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm - Winston Churchill

When it comes to talking about finding courage in failure and never surrendering, there is no one better than Winston Churchill. Churchill was the prime minister of Britain when World War II started and led with courage when his country was in dire crisis. He taught and showed that no matter the challenge that presents itself; it is always best to keep trying, even when failure continues to prevail. Our college failures and difficulties are not as difficult as those others face, but we can learn from our mistakes the same as them. If we take Churchill's advice and move from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm, we can find success in every facet of our life including college.

When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind - Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

There are multiple paths to success but in the end, they all are based on kindness. No matter the path you take in life, being kind to those around you will always allow you to get the farthest. Just as the quote states, there is never a better choice than choosing kindness. When we understand that everyone in the grand story of life is as important as you, it becomes increasingly easier to show kindness. As college students, it is easy to fall into a world that puts us at the center, but if we can move away from selfishness, we can find greater joy and happiness.

We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy - J. K. Rowling

When starting your adult life by entering college, you truly discover who you are. Understanding that you are free to choose any choice you want hits hard when living on your own and it is when you see someone's true character. Just as the quote says, there is a time when we must choose between the right choice and the easy one. The right choice isn’t always the easiest choice and in the end, it might boil down to playing the short or long game. Playing the long game will always pay off in a way that will benefit you and this is true when it comes to higher education. Choose the right choice and not the easy one.

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise - Victor Hugo

The brilliant mind that wrote Les Miserables and the Hunchback of Notre Dame preaches the understanding that every bad thing has an end. There is a high sense of stress and difficulty that comes with college, but knowing that it is short-term will always give a sense of hope. No matter the persistent problems that exist in your life, knowing that eventually the sun will rise and the bad day will end will always give you a better outlook on life, including your experience in college.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind - Dr. Seuss

Expressing yourself in a manner that is true to yourself is important to all aspects of life. One who knew this principle and taught it was Dr. Seuss. Throughout his art style and sharing lessons with children of all ages, he preached that being yourself is as important as any other decision you could make. As you continue your life outside of college, it will be imperative that you live your life in a way that is true to yourself.


There are going to be moments in your life that will require courage, hope, and kindness and if you learn how to live these principles early, you will be that much farther ahead.
