25 Motivational Quotes for Studying

Below is a list of 25 motivational quotes for studying. Let’s be real here, studying can often be brutally boring. This is especially true when you’re studying for a subject you have no interest in, it’s nice and sunny outside, and there are about a thousand other things you’d much rather be doing. Add the fact that we won’t use most of the stuff we learn in school, studying can often seem pointless. But study you must.
