We all have those down and grey days when we feel stuck. I’ve definitely had more than a few of those recently. And rather than blaming the weather (goodbye sun!) here’s a list of inspirational quotes that will help your creative juices flowing again.

7 Inspirational Musicians Quotes to Supercharge Your Day

1. “If I don’t practice for a day, I know it. If I don’t practice for two days, the critics know it. And if I don’t practice for three days, the public knows it.” – Louis Armstrong 

2. “The secret of life…is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.” – Paulo Coelho, from The Alchemist

3. “Attention to detail makes the difference between a good song and a great song…Sometimes I hear a melody in my head, and it seems like the first color in a painting…When I write an arrangement, I always picture a blind person listening to the song. And I choose chords and sounds and percussion instruments which would help clarify the feel of the song to a blind person” – Prince

4. “It’s therapy. It’s fun. It’s creative. I love getting on a big writing binge and staying up a couple days working on song and knowing at the end of those two or three days that I’ve created something that was never in the world before. It’s like a feeling of creating, not that the same stories ain’t been told before, but it ain’t been told through my point of view. And it’s my way of relaxing. Songwriting is a hobby and to me it’s therapy. It’s a joy. It’s a thrill. It’s like mind exercises or something.” – Dolly Parton

5. “Pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” – Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

6. “I am not afraid…I was born to do this.” – Joan of Arc

7. “The only thing better than singing is more singing.” – Ella Fitzgerald
