Self-discovery Quotes
(25+ quotes)

Self-discovery quotes address all aspects of examining our inner world. What is the purpose of our life? What have we forgotten about our mission on earth? The answers are our ‘treasures.’

We all have the answers to our biggest questions inside us.  Our journey of life is actually a treasure hunt, inviting us to pay attention to inner and outer clues. I particularly like this quote by Joseph Campbell: “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” Your dreams are waiting for you.  Start your journey of self-discovery today!
