Wednesdays are all about hard work and making it through the week to the weekend.

Wednesday is popularly known as the 'hump day'. This is because it falls in the middle of the week, and one needs to climb over the hump to make it to Friday.

If you are having trouble getting through a Wednesday morning and looking for inspiration to get through the second half of the week, don't worry we have got your back.

Here we have compiled some of the best and most positive quotes that will help you get started and energize you to get through this hump day in the middle of the week.

The one good thing about Wednesday is you have made halfway through the week, and now that you are already in the middle of the week, all you have to do is work two more days, and you will make it to the weekend.

We hope these happy Wednesday quotes can offer you a positive quote for the day (this is a quote that you share with someone every morning to keep spirits high) and push you through it!
