Need encouragement to make it through the week?  Try these 10 inspiring Taylor Swift quotes.

1. Believe in Love

“Real love still happens sometimes. It’s not just something we make up when we’re nine. I have to believe that. You do too.”

Taylor Swift

In a tweet to Selena Gomez, Twitter: April 13, 2009

2. Be Strong

“Be that strong girl that everyone knew would make it through the worst, be that fearless girl, the one who would dare to do anything, be that independent girl who didn’t need a man; be that girl who never backed down.”

Taylor Swift


3. Know Yourself

“I think it’s important to be self-aware about what people are saying about you, but even more so, be very aware of who you actually are, and to have that be the main priority.”

Taylor Swift

NPR Interview

“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”

Taylor Swift

5. Embrace the Uncertainty

“I’ve learned that you can’t predict [love] or plan for it. For someone like me who is obsessed with organization and planning, I love the idea that love is the one exception to that. Love is the one wild card.”

Taylor Swift


6. Speak Up

“Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I’ve begun to fear more that that is letting the moment pass without saying anything.”

Taylor Swift

7. Do Your Best

“In the grand scheme of things, I’m living a life… I know I’m going to make mistakes. I’m just going to try to handle those mistakes as a good person. The perception of you is going to change daily when you do what I do, but I just want to end up knowing in my heart that I did that right thing and tried my best, and if you mess up, hopefully it teaches you something.”

Taylor Swift

NPR Interview, November 2012

8. Overcome Your Fears

“To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.”

Taylor Swift

9. Say “I Love You” More

“I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back, regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say ‘I love you.’ When we should’ve said ‘I’m sorry.’ When we didn’t stand up for ourselves or someone who needed help.”

Taylor Swift

10. Be the New Generation

“Unique and different is the new generation of beautiful.”

Taylor Swift
