Life is hard, and encouragement quotes can help you keep on keeping on. We all need it, and we need to give it as well.
Encouraging other people will help you as much as receiving encouragement yourself. When you give this type of support, you are accessing and activating the best of who you are.
When you encourage, you are finding the good in the person you're encouraging. That effort of Goodfinding is beneficial to everyone.
