Daily Quotes

Here are some of my favorite quotes of the day, enjoy.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

Coming from Einstein himself. How true is that? We all have talents. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you are stupid.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Ok, I had to get this profound early on in this post. It is so important to really enjoy every single moment we have, we never get them back. And learning is one of my favorite things to do. Expanding our knowledge can lead to a very fulfilling life. And sharing that knowledge.

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer somebody else up.” – Mark Twain

I love this one! How many times have you felt so down on your luck, things cannot get any worse, and then someone comes into your life, and you happen to be the perfect person to tell them what they need to hear. That is one of life’s most rewarding moments.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

We have all heard this quote. And how true it really is. Fear is just an emotion. ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’. More often than not, our fears are not even justified. If we don’t conquer our fears, they become our limits. Here’s what I think of fear:

“Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated  until defeat has been accepted as a reality.” – Bruce Lee

There are many, many, many  successful people who have faced adversity and defeat over and over again. One that comes to mind is Tyler Perry. He wrote and produced a play, which failed repeatedly for six years. Through perseverance he never gave up. He was never defeated. And now he is extremely successful. Here is a nice short video on how he never gave up.

Different Types of Quotes

There are so many types of quotes out there. For every facet of life. From Success, motivation, to health, spirituality and love. Here are ones I love, let’s start with success:

“The starting point of all achievement is desire” – Napoleon Hill
It is true, you must have the desire to be successful.

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day” – Jim Rohn
The smallest of steps can make the biggest difference. And if you can stick to those changes, your life could change

“All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure”- Mark Twain
This is a gem. If success was a fork, confidence is a knife. I believe in this context ignorance is ignore the naysayers. Ignore the circumstances that look like it will never happen and keep going.

How about some inspirational quotes:

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door” – Milton Berle
I so love this one. There are many successful people who don’t even see failure. They are just obstacles. Sometimes in life we need to go out there and make sh*t happen!

“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about” – Unknown
I wish I could give whoever wrote this credit. I have come across this quote many times throughout my life and it is to important. We get so caught up in the mundane of everyday life, and often forget our dreams. Never forget your dreams.

“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling” – Unknown

This is appropriate after the last quote. People always think what they are passionate about are just meant to be hobbies. That is false. I have yet to see a passion that could not in some way be profitable.

Spiritual Quotes for the Day

Here is a compilation of some very special Faith / Spirituality quotes for your daily pleasure!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Phillippians 4:13

I love this quote. When you know you have the power of God inside of you, it can give you the strength to do things you may not have thought you could do alone.

“Some people come in your life as blessings. Some come in your life as lesson” – Mother Teresa

What a great reminder. Especially when people come into your life, seemingly for no reason, or not a good reason. It’s good to know there is a higher plan.

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls” – Mother Teresa

Sometimes connecting with nature is all you really need to do to feel connected to something greater.

“So I say to you, Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you” –  Jesus Christ

Just ask. A lot of people simply don’t do that. Have the the courage to ask. What I believe this means is have faith. Faith that you will receive what you need. Sometimes it’s not on our time, but  it’s on Gods time.

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe” – Saint Augustine

I love the topic of faith. Some say fear is just backwards faith, (believing in your fear instead of trying to have faith). Having faith in the unseen. It is a lot easier said than done. But, that is basically what accepting your fear is. Believing in the unseen.

“What God intended for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine” – Oprah Winfrey

There are many authors in the world today that say the only limit we have is our own imagination. Imagine (no pun intended), that, that was our limiter in what we could achieve?

 

I hope you enjoyed these quotes!
