29 Quotes for When You’re Feeling Like a Frog

Because we all need inspiration sometimes.

So I love quotes. I mean, who doesn’t love quotes? A good quote can make you feel a little better and harbour some hope for something or give you inspiration to do something or say something. Everyone feels down and foggy from time to time and needs a pick-me-up, and quotes can do it better than coffee. Here I have compiled a list of cute quotes/sayings (in no particular order) that I have stumbled across my listless wanderings on the Internet for answers when feeling lost and like a frog, hopping from one thing to another looking for a fat juicy fly for contentment. Currently I am pursuing my passion for the arts and exploring my ‘creativity’; tomorrow I will probably want to become a world-class-master-of-the-arts programmer working for B6 13 (Scandal reference). But yes, whatever it is, post-uni life is a void of complexity, anxiety, apprehension and relentless questioning – in all personal, social and professional spheres. Sometimes you just don’t want to give a ****. And that’s why I refer to quotes – because they help to put it all into perspective 😉 .
