13 Darkly Motivational Quotes

When getting through the day is my goal, a sappy quote about success and achievement doesn’t motivate me to keep going until tomorrow. I prefer the comfort of bittersweet words that ring true. Sometimes, it’s worse to feel alone with you’re unhappiness than to be unhappy. Here are some quotes that I’ve found motivational over the years:

  • “My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.”

– Cary Grant

  • “It’s possible to love a human being if you don’t know them too well.”
  • “If you’re losing your soul and you know it, then you’ve still got a soul left to lose.”

– Charles Bukowski

  • “Passion is what gets you through the hardest times that might otherwise make strong men weak, or make you give up.”

  • “Time moves in one direction, memory in another.”
  • “For years I have been mourning and not for my dead, it is for this boy for whatever corner in my heart died when his childhood slid out of my arms.”
