365 Inspirational Quotes: A Year of Daily Wisdom from Great Thinkers, Books, Humorists, and More is a first for me. The first of these type of quotes inspirational books that I’ve read. The quotes themselves are marked individually for each calendar day of the year. These inspirational quotes were uniquely chosen and placed for each day, so all 365 of them have a special meaning behind them. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a J.R.R. Tolkien quote for March 25 which is Tolkien Reading Day! (in addition it was the day that Sauron was defeated)
Originally meant to be read throughout the year, I took a completely different approach for it. I read this book in about five days. I certainly didn’t speed read it, otherwise what’s the point of the inspiration nature of it. Instead what I ended up doing, I wrote down the quotes that spoke to me the most, through out the main white cover pages of two of my journals. Needless to say, I had about 6 pages completely filled with inspiration quotes from this book, that spanned through two of my daily journals. This means that each time I open those two particular journals (I own multiple ones), the very first thing that I’ll see will be the different inspiration quotes taken from this book. I really enjoyed this unexpected read and exercise, but more importantly, it was very encouraging and inspirational to me during a time when I needed it.
