Displaying Inspiring Quotes in a Non-Cheesy Way

I have many quotes that really inspire me, as I’m sure many people do, and I’ve noticed that sometimes I have to read them everyday to allow them to positively affect my life. The problem with this though, is that there are so many ways to display quotes that I find far too cheesy to do in my own home. Here are some ways to display inspiration quotes without creating an eye sore.
