Ultimate Guide of 100+ Inspiring Quotes for 2020

4th January 2020

I started sharing quotes and phone wallpapers here on my blog at the start of 2019, and I’ve been blown away by how popular they’ve been. I love pinning quotes on Pinterest, and using them as wallpapers on my phone for motivation, so I decided to start making my own and posting them so you could also download them too. I’ve posted all sorts of different wallpapers and quotes since I first began almost a year ago, and today I’m going to be sharing the ultimate guide of 100+ inspiring quotes for 2020.

Ultimate Guide of 100+ Inspiring Quotes for 2020

A new year is always exciting. I love the whole new year, new start vibes that come with a new year – never mind a new decade. I started my quotes and phone backgrounds back in January 2019 so it’s a year now since I originally started, so I felt like I needed to create a bumper collection to mark the one-year point. It makes me so happy whenever you share my quotes and wallpapers on your social media channels and tag me, so I really hope you like this collection of over 100 quotes. 

I’ve shared many different quotes and phone wallpapers here on my blog, and here are a small selection I’ve shared so far:

Here are a collection of inspiring and motivational quotes which you can download and use as wallpapers on your phone should you wish to. If you’re on your phone and you want to save one, just press hold the screen and select ‘save’ photo or download photo depending on your browser. If you’re on a laptop or computer, just right click the image and select ‘save as’ to save to your downloads folder.
