They’ve existed seemingly forever. Short, pithy statements often intended to convey some sort of inspirational or motivational message. Things like:
“Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.”
“Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
“Be loyal to those who are not present. In doing so, you will earn the trust of those who are present.”
“Don’t downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny.”
“If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.”
