Self-Affirmation Quotes for the Soul

Our soul knows what is best for us. It warns when there is pending danger, or forces us to rest after a long journey. The soul is easy to forget as we get caught up in the tangles of life. Allow these reminders to wash over you to renew the inner spirit, and allow the soul to become whole again.

I adore this quote from Mahatma Gandhi. He talked about slowing down and "There is more to life than increasing its speed."  Let's take this to heart in order to enjoy life and find restoration.

Small Acts

"Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success." - Swami Sivananda

Smile

"Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts." - Paramahansa Yogananda

Worship

"When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator." - Mahatma Gandhi

Refuse to Hate

"I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him." - Booker T. Washington

A Force

"What is a soul? It's like electricity - we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room." - Ray Charles

Power

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." - John Muir
