We all need a reminder now and then of how valuable we are as a person, a colleague, a partner, a mother, a friend, or a father. This is a list of quotes that I keep close to me at all times in my Google Keep note taker. I love Google Keep as it offers an app for your computer, phone, and an extension in Chrome that easily sync with one another. It is the best and most convenient note taker I have found. When thoughts pop into my head or I find quotes that touch me, it is so easy to “jot” them down in Google Keep as well as having access to my notes for whenever I need them.
Quotes are one of my passions. I have a blog where I showcase other people’s quotes that I have collected over the years and now share on Tumblr. I also have another blog – Quotes Are My Passion where I share some of my own quoted designs that can be purchased in various formats on my Donation Art Website. I donate all of proceeds from sales on this site to nonprofit organizations that fight for Autism Acceptance and against Domestic Violence. I also have a Quotes Are My Passion Facebook Page where you can find different quotes I have designed. So, please check out all four places.
I love quotes so much, they truly are a passion and labor of love. I especially love quotes by unknown authors. I can’t really explain the fascination with quotes by unknown authors other than to state; these quotes leave a door to interpret their true meaning up to the reader. We all know famous quotes by famous people but we tend to, at times, equate the meaning of their quotes to their known personalities. For me, reading quotes by unknown authors allows my creativity to flow as I place meaning on each quote in such a way that I feel best describes their interpretation.
So I give you some of my favorite motivational quotes about being successful that are written by unknown authors. Enjoy!

My hope is that you will find some satisfaction in your life and be inspired enough to tweet and/or re-blog some of my favorite quotes by unknown authors. I have been collecting unknown quotes for years but this is the first time that I have shared any of my collection anywhere online. That makes this post especially personal to me as I am making myself vulnerable, however, sharing them with others is more satisfying at this point.
