Short Motivational Sayings and Quotes to Paint- Craft Project
by Catherine Pulsifer
Stress Less Country - a lifestyle change -

Over the years I have been collecting motivational sayings and quotes. When I started painting I found I referred to these sayings and quotes to use on my projects. One example where I use them is on the bottom of painted rocks. People always seem pleasantly surprised when they turn the painted rock over and there is a saying on it.  

The motivational sayings and quotes below are short, one to two liners, that will enhance projects you are working on. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Do It!

Fall seven times, stand up eight!

Happiness depends on ourselves.

All things are difficult before they are easy.

Anyone can navigate in fine weather.

Homemade with love
from my kitchen

Where there is a will, there is a way.

Count your blessings - not your troubles

Happiness is just a smile away

All people smile in the same language

What sunshine is to flowers,

A diamond is a piece of coal

Problems are opportunities

Quitters new win
Winners never quit!

Inch by inch
Life is a cinch

Don't be-little
Be Big
