We all have bad days when we just want to shut everything off, to sever all connections with the outside world. We all come to a point when we had enough. We all need a break from our lives from time to time. Hoping to make these moments slightly better, I made a list of quotes to remind you that life is worth living, to give you a bit of piece and the strength to keep going.

If anyone hurts you, Frank Sinatra says that if you succeed, revenge is achieved. You didn’t let that person drag you down, you succeeded in spite of his trying to stop you. Revenge does not always mean to hurt the one who hurt you, but to not give him the pleasure of seeing you down.
