46 Thursday Quotes and Sayings for a Brilliant Day

Happy Thursday! The weekday is still ongoing, but the weekend is almost at reach. So, you might get excited and mistake Thursday for Friday. Well, don't let it ruin your day. It's another day to work on our goals, and we should be thankful we’re over the hump. If this speaks to you, our Thursday quotes below sum up the sentiments of this day.

Like Tuesday and Wednesday, we may feel the fourth day of the week is less eventful than the other days. On the other hand, for people on a four-day work week, lucky for you, Thursday is your New Friday!

Best Thursday Quotes

Every Thursday, everything might seem like routine as the week is well underway, but yet to draw to a close. Emotions from positive and negative memories normalize over time due to a phenomenon called hedonic adaptation, a natural human response. But we can surely combat its adverse effects when we are aware of it. 

Keeping a gratitude journal is one way to limit the impact of hedonic adaptation. Through the journal, we can relive positive memories, reminding ourselves of the good moments1.

So, start yours now by grabbing an eco-friendly notebook. And pick a time this Thursday to write three things you're thankful for daily. Have a browse of our journal prompts for some ideas to get started.

Tolerable Thursdays are okay, but you can break the routine, foster a positive attitude, and have a great Thursday. If you're stuck, the following Thursday quotes below will cheer you up.

Productive Thursday Quotes To Push You

Thursday is an odd place. The weekend feels so close, but you're still in the middle of the workweek. And even if you don't feel like it, you need to finish your homework or do what your boss asked you to do. 

When we find ourselves experiencing a lack of motivation, we should be aware of how we talk to ourselves. A 2014 study described how a few shifts during self-talk could benefit us2. When referring to ourselves from a third-person perspective, we can think objectively about our responses and emotions, thus reducing stress and anxiety. When we are more level-headed, we can effectively eliminate time wasting, aiding our productivity.

Remember, how we talk to ourselves impacts our mindset. So let's learn positive self-talk after reading the Thursday inspirational quotes below.

Other Quotes About Thursday Events, Shows, And More

In honor of Norse Mythology's god of Thunder, the fourth day of the week is Thor's day or Thursday. On the other hand, the Roman origin for Thursday came from the counterpart god Jupiter or Jove since they both control Thunder and lightning. So countries with romance languages have the following translation - Giovedì for Italian, Jeudi for French, and Jueves for Spanish. Meanwhile, in East Asian countries, the word is associated with trees because the days are based on the Chinese philosophy called wuxing.
