For caregivers, the best and most meaningful quotes cover a wide range of things. Whether the topic is love, overcoming fear, or courage, the wisest words tend to point to one important truth – that we are not alone!
Here is a selection of inspirational quotes that we find particularly relevant for caregivers:
“Compassion brings us to a stop, and for a moment we rise above ourselves.” — Mason Cooley
“Compassion automatically invites you to relate with people because you no longer regard people as a drain on your energy.”— Chogyam Trungpa
“If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude.” ― Amy Tan
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the things which you think you cannot do.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
“Although the days are busy and the workload is always growing, there are still those special moments when someone says or does something and you know you’ve made a difference in someone’s life. That’s why I became a nurse.” — Diane McKenty
“Be determined to handle any challenge in a way that will make you grow.” — Les Brown
“Forgiveness is not an occasional act: it is an attitude.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
“Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.” — Emory Austin

“Caregiving often calls us to lean into love we didn’t know possible.” ― Tia Walker
“No matter what the relationship was between the parent and child—whatever it was—this is going to be extremely challenging because it is not logical. There’s no way to deal with it rationally or directly. You don’t reason it out. What I’ve said to so many people is: we always must lead with our love.” ― Dr. Stephen Hoag
