Life can often prove to be hard and confusing to navigate. Quotes about life from successful world and religious leaders give us some insight into how to lead the lives that we truly want.
For example, Gandhi said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” This quote reminds us that we need to be good to each other in order to become better people and learn more about ourselves. It tells us that we should forget about ourselves and put others first in order to be the people we were meant to be. Gandhi is very well known and well respected by many and quotes from the mouth of Gandhi about life are bound to help us learn from his wisdom and lead better lives. Reading quotes about life from people we respect is like being able to go to our hero for advice and encouragement. We can get a glimpse into the knowledge that they gained through their lives and learn what philosophies led them to their great success.
Inspirational quotes are a great way to get inspired to do something greater than the normal day to day activities. For example, Larry Page, co-founder of Google said, “I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name.” People like Larry Page, who have accomplished great things in their lives, can inspire us to also push ourselves past our comfort zone and also achieve great things. This quote motivates us to dream big and not question ourselves, because he was able to achieve success for beyond what people thought was possible. As John Updike said “Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.” Larry page is a great example of this quote. We can be inspired by these quotes to dream and to bream big. There are many times in life where giving up seems like the only option, but if we have read an inspirational quote and keep it in mind, it is often easier to keep going and to look for solutions instead of just focusing on the difficulty of the problem and how impossible it all seems. These quotes can help by uplifting our spirits and guiding our way to a more positive mentality and life.
Sometimes, all people need is one person to believe in their dreams and goals, to help push them through the hard times until they are able to reach the finish line. Life can be very challenging, even in the small day to day issues that arise. However, when we read and apply these inspiring quotes from respected figures we are reminded that others have traveled this road before us and have come out of it victorious. American Poet, Langston Hughes tells us to “Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” He is trying to inspire us to never give up on our dreams in life or our life will have been less than what they could have been. It is easy to see that these famous philosophers, religious and political leaders, successful business men and women, and poets what taken the time to study life and success and the result of their life’s experience is shared through these quotes. We benefit from them in many ways.
