Create Things You Wish Existed

By Finja Kemski


Where will you start? If you had one wish, what will it be? I’m trying to find the answers.


I find a lot of truth in discovering inspirational posts.
You can probably tell by the
 fact that I post posts on Instagram which capture words from the past. Soon forgotten.
I love their meaning, it speaks to my heart.


In short, quotes inspire me to become a better person.


Here's a selection.




“Enthusiasm spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.”

– Norman Vincent Peale


“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson


“You can’t cross a sea by merely staring into the water.”

– Rabindranath Tagore


“Good judgment comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgment.”

– Rita Mae Brown



“Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?”

– Ian Wallace


“Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.”

– Steve Maraboli


“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

“He who thinks, but does not learn, is in great danger.”



“Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are.”

– Stephanie Lahart


The last laugh, the last cup of coffee, the last sunset, the last time you jump through a sprinkler, or eat an ice-cream cone, or stick your tongue out to catch a snowflake. You just don’t know.”

– Lauren Oliver


"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet."

– Mahatma Gandhi
