Body image and beauty quotations can be used in a variety of ways to inspire, motivate, and encourage women to think more positively about their body image in a subtle and none confrontational manner. Body Image quotes can be used as daily reminders of how magnificent we are as human beings and best of all we can’t argue back with negative derogatory remarks about ourselves or disputing comments.
Beauty quotations are soul-food that nourishes our spirit from people from various centuries, cultures, and worlds that we would have never met otherwise. But through a single quote, your thoughts become connected in a timeless universe.
If you are looking for ways to inspire someone with the perfect quotation, here are some ideas:
Buy a set of coffee mugs for each day of the week with a different quotation. Here are some examples:
Monday: Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. __ Malcolm Forbes
Tuesday: If God had wanted me otherwise, he would have created me otherwise.__ Johann vo Goethe
Wednesday: There is only one success—to be able to spend your life in your own way.__ Christopher Morley
Thursday: We all lose our looks eventually; better develop your character and interest in life.__ Jacqueline Bisset
Friday: It is only when I am doing my work that I am truly alive.
Saturday: There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.
__ Lady Marguerite Blessington
Sunday: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.__ Mahatma Gandhi
You may also place quotations on bumper stickers for random strangers to read while driving. I enjoy the life quotations that cause me to ponder my dreams while waiting for the traffic light to change from red to green. Here are a few that I have enjoyed reading:
Don’t let life discourage you; everyone got where he is-- had to begin where he was. __Richard L. Evans
Invest in yourself—if you have confidence in yourself.__ William Feather
The way to be nothing is to do nothing.__ Edgar W. Howe
It’s where we go, and what we do when we get there, that tells us who we are. __Joyce Carol Oates
Another good place to add quotations is at the bottom of your signature line in your emails. Here are a few of my favorites:
So long as men praise you, you can only be sure that you are not yet on your own true path but on someone else’s.__ Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one’s self. All sin is easy after that. __ Pearl Bailey
You give little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.__ Kahlil Gibran
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.__ Mahatma Gandhi
