Are you stuck trying to figure out something great to say for a difficult or special moment? Why not look around for a quote from a famous writer or celebrity to include in your correspondence?
Goodreads has a searchable quote listing that can really help if you’re struggling with your own words.
Inspirational quotes are ubiquitous, but if you choose carefully for a specific occasion, it just might eloquently sum up exactly what you were looking to say.

For someone going through a difficult time:
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
– Robert Frost
To thank a friend for being there:
“Words are easy like the wind; Faithful friends are hard to find.”
– William Shakespeare
For a message of sympathy:
“Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.”
– Mitch Albom
