15 Inspirational Quotes to Knock the Hibernating Winter Blues Out of You

15 Inspirational Quotes to Knock the Hibernating Winter Blues Out of You

The new year has only just started and you are all ready to give up on your resolutions, or maybe you are just tired of hearing and reading about everyone’s resolutions. In either case, you probably just need some inspirational quotes to get you jump started.

It’s that time of year again. It’s cold outside (if you are in the Midwest and Northeast US, it’s bone-freezing cold), it’s dark when you go to and leave from work and you pretty much just want to hibernate in your bedroom under the covers until May. Don’t let it get you down though. Hibernating for humans is not a thing. You must leave the house, you must interact with people and you must get some pep in your step. Inspirational quotes are what you need.

And that’s where we come in. We have put together a roundup of the best inspirational quotes to get you inspired and keep you inspired to knock the socks off of the rest of your life. It might be cold, rainy, snowy, dark, dreary and [insert dismal adjective here] outside, but you need to get your act together and hit the gym, take that class, get that promotion at work or whatever it is you need to do to take control of your life. Crappy weather be damned.

Here are some of the best inspirational quotes we found to keep you inspired through the winter and the rest of the year too!
