505 Motivational Quotes: A Little Something For Everyone

I like motivational quotes a lot. I have them written on three by five cards on the walls of my office, I write them in the margins of my notebooks, I recite them into mp3 files that I listen to as I do work that doesn't require my full intellectual attention. I really like motivational quotes.

 

Yet, if you look at the same quotes over and over they lose their ability to well, motivate. You stop seeing them, or the magic of the phrasing starts to be lost on you. Also, since most of us could use motivation and encouragement in slightly different forms (and for slightly different difficulties) each day, sometimes a quote that is helpful on Sunday morning can be downright irritating on Monday afternoon.This is why I like the 505 Motivational Quotes App specifically. There are certainly other motivational quotes apps and even some de-motivator apps, which are truly cynicism apps and are clever and even sometimes useful in their own right. But the 505 Motivational Quotes App is broken up into eight different categories from which you can read a quote; happiness, inspirational, leadership, life, motivational, personal growth success and wisdom. Once you've selected a category you can read through the quotes in order, or you can select a random quote (although it seems to randomize to any category so I don't know how helpful that feature is) .

The categories do vary in quality a bit. For example, the success category seems to have more archaic, slightly more banal quotes from sources such as Winston Churchill. But the happiness category combines quotes from both modern and historic figures which provides a nice juxtaposition of thought and increases the likelihood you can relate to one of the quotes. A nice feature would be the ability to mark favorites; that might be available on the enhanced version.
