25 (+1) Inspiring Quotes for Your Bullet Journal

I spend a lot of time between the pages of my bullet journal. It’s where I organize my schedule, goals, characters I’m working on, ideas I’ve had, lists I don’t want to lose. It is quickly becoming a second home for me, so I strive to make it a positive, enjoyable place to spend my time. One way I accomplish this is by peppering my journal with little notes of encouragement. No matter how the day has worn me down, I can retreat into my bullet journal, refocus, block out the world, and remind myself that mistakes happen, goals take time, and I am enough.

These quotes are inspiring on their own, or you can dress them up with doodles and creative lettering. Embellishments are certainly not requirements for bullet journaling (and you don’t want it to become another thing on your to-do list), but I find that visual appeal plays a huge role in how my journal affects my mood. These habits also contribute to my creative free time, a tool I use to inspire my writing. When I’m feeling stuck, a little doodle pause can be just the thing I need to get my creative juices flowing.

If you want to pump your bullet journal up a level, there are a few things I would recommend:

  1. Positive mind. Positive vibes. Positive life.
  2. Dream big. Start small. Act now.
  3. Be stubborn about your goals. Be flexible about your methods.
  4. There will be haters & doubters, and there will be you, proving them wrong.
  5. Don’t let someone who gave up on her dreams talk you out of yours.
  6. Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
  7. Be the light. ~ Matt. 5:14
  8. If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.
  9. Work hard & stay humble.
  10. Imperfection is a form of freedom.
  11. Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.
  12. Do small things with great love.
  13. Mistakes are proof that you are trying.
  14. The creative adult is the child who survived.
  15. Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value – Albert Einstein
  16. It’s not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life.
  17. Honor your pace.
  18. Mistakes are the greatest teachers.
  19. Dreams don’t work unless you do.
  20. Knowledge speaks. Wisdom listens.
  21. Life is short. Let’s do this.
  22. Creative minds are rarely tidy.
  23. We cannot control the wind, but we can direct the sail.
  24. Happiness is found when we stop comparing ourselves to other people.
  25. Stay patient, and trust your journey.

  1. Thanks for sharing the quotes! I love collecting them. Here’s one I’ve found particularly profound recently: Everyone has an opinion. If you buy their opinion you buy their lifestyle

  2. Love quotes! Will definitely be adding some of these to my quote journal. No. 14 and 22 really resonate with me as creativity is my superpower, BFF and saving grace. My favorite quote and mantra that I incorporate in my everyday is “Dwell in Possibility”. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Happiness is not the absence of problems; it’s the ability to deal with them. – Eckhart Tolle

  4. Crystle Monahan

    I saw a quote recently that really got me. After taking a Myers-Briggs personality test at 16 Personalities (a website), I received a newsletter from them and in the newsletter I saw these words: “don’t stop at the map.” Since I tend to research everything into oblivion, but rarely ever *do* the project I’m researching, you could say I stop at the map quite often, so this quote inspires me.

      1. My favorite quote for that context is “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” — Will Rogers

        1. Tracy, this is a great quote! Thanks for sharing it. I find motivational words so helpful when I’m stalled in a new project. 🙂

          1. Thanks MJ! I have collected quotes since I was a senior in high school and that was a looooooong time ago, so I have A LOT! I have an excel spreadsheet that I keep them now. =) Thank you for taking the time to put together these inspiring quotes, Needless to say, I put several of them on my spreadsheet! 😀

  5. Mary Sternick Brock

    Just added this one to my Level 10 Life spread, “You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis

  6. Some of my favorites are:

    “No one would ever have crossed the ocean if they could have gotten off the ship in a storm.”

    “Life is one long lesson in humility.”

    “I will go anywhere, as long as it is forward.”

    “Remember, happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.”

    “People do not become great by doing great things; they do great things because they are great”

    “No man has ever drowned in sweat”

    “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”

    “Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier”

    “A ship in the harbor is safe; but that’s not what ships are built for.”

    “Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart”

    “No excellent soul is exempt from madness”

    “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

    “Ships are safe in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are built for”

    WHEW! Lol, that was a bunch! I just love quotes, I hope you like them! 🙂 xoxo

    1. Krismiss, these are amazing! I am so grateful that you took the time to copy these here for everyone to see. If there’s one thing I never get enough of, it’s inspiring words. Thank you again! ????

    My favorite quote of all-time is at the very start of my journal. It was spoken by the character Galadriel in the Lord of the Rings movies. “Even the smallest person change the course of the future.” I first saw the movies in High School and that quote stuck with me due to my being a shorter person, much like the Hobbit the quote was referencing. I have always remembered it, especially when something seems out of reach.

  8. “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of places, so long as one remembers to turn on the light.”

  9. Moraima Caceres De Centeno

    “Make your Faith Larger that your Fears, and make your Dreams Bigger that your Doubts” Robin Sharma. I had decided that this will be my 2017 quote. Thanks Megan for creating this fantastic post.
