Everyone has a bad day occasionally where we need a little inspiration to guide us through the harsh torment of life. From a daily schedule that often includes a relentless barrage of utility bills which needs paying to where your marriage has become over strained to such an extent that even the simple pleasantries you exchange with your loved one have taken a one way ticket to "The Twilight Zone". Then there is the children to contend with who seem to have this incessant urge to inundate you with problems so trivial that you feel like Miley Cyrus's publicist. Throw your pig of a boss into the mix and you have a hellish melting pot of growing despair that somehow represents your life.
We get to the point where we question our purpose in life and wonder what we are tolerating all these hardships for at the end of the day. What we tend to crave in our darkest hour is a guiding presence to help rejuvenate our waning beliefs. Cue the grand entrance of worldly wisdom and all the nourishing goodness that emanates from it's outstretched hand of friendship.
Below you will find a selection of inspirational quotes from various authors and people involved with show business to a certain degree. I have posted all of them on my main Twitter account at some stage in the past and have gathered the cream of the crop for your viewing pleasure!
