45 Saturday Motivational Quotes

We all talk about Monday Motivation or needing that extra oomph to get you past the midweek hump and hard work for a productive week. But what about the weekends? Sure, we do not need as much motivation on a Saturday as we do on a Sunday, but we still need some inspirational quotes for a happy Saturday.

Especially if we want to have a productive Saturday — whether that be working on your side hustle, returning that Amazon package you have been meaning to return for weeks now, cooking a meal for family, cleaning your house, or so on. Motivation is not just needed during the workdays!

Here are some Saturday motivational quotes that will put you in the mood to have an awesome day (and weekend!) and give you the motivation you need – no matter what that motivation is for! A little motivation is not the only way but can sometimes be the best way to make good things happen for yourself.
