Quotes are one of the powerful communication tools. And I greatly like using quotations, because of the huge benefits it provides. Certainly, a good quote inspires, encourages, and boosts one’s moods. So when I see a good quote it always resonates with me. I regard good quotations like mental fast food. Because I can easily grab them at any time, to quench the mental curiosity I have…
And moreover, we have to realize, that variety is the spice of life. Knowledge is power, and nobody has a monopoly of knowledge, no matter the particular area of knowledge. So, when we read good quotes from the brilliant thinkers of the past and present, we accumulate a wealth of insights from them. Definitely, the best positive quotations provided in this article will provide you the inspiration and a daily boost of mental energy.
Here in this post today, I have taken the time to select for your delight, the best positive positive quotations that you can gain a lot from. I included the names of the authors. In addition, where my personal comments or what I have as “Let’s discuss this.” I believe that you will find it to be valuable.
I will also like to mention that some of the quotes are funny, some, are challenging, some are spiritual, while some are motivating. I hope you found them as useful as I hoped for. Let’s get to it!
About Happiness Let’s start with this, we believe that everybody wants to be happy right? Here’s what RALPH WALDO EMERSON said about happiness.
“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.”
Let’s Discuss This: After reading the above quote on happiness, ask yourself, if there is something, anything at all you can do to make another person today feel loved, recognized, and blessed?
I believe there are plenty of ways we can touch other people’s lives and share happiness. If you know there are things you can do to perfume others, please, pour the perfume so that both the giver and the receiver can feel good. Take action, and see how powerful and happy you feel as well as the other person.
Many of us dread change. We dread the change of job, location, leadership, weather, aging, and so forth. Part of the reason for fear of change is because of uncertainty right. Ok, let’s hear what JOHANA WOLFANG… says about change.
“Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who think would that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it?”
Let’s Discuss This: I have been through some tough periods in my time, and I know how overwhelming and despairing such periods were. During such wilderness experience period, it feels as if the days are longer than the 24 hours, and years more than 12 months. You feel as if things will never change or get better.
But today when we consider where we are, we can see how far we have come. The changes that we have been through, and the strength and experience gained.
The point I want to make is that our lives are filled with mountain and valley experiences.
At whatever stage or experience, you’re going through, just believe that it is a season, that it will come to pass. After the winter here comes the green garden again the Sumer!
Here is what THICH NHAT HANH, said about Smiling. “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
Let’s Discuss This: You know what I’ve learned even though late, I should say, is that if we wait for the world to smile at us before we smile back, we will wait for who knows when?
I have learned that Smiling is a gift we give ourselves. No matter our personality traits, and circumstances, we have a choice to smile. Psychologically and physiologically speaking, smiling has a lot of benefits to our overall health.
With this in mind, remind yourself to smile regularly and then see how you feel and how you make others around you feel. Make the choice to smile, regardless. https://www.thedailypositive.com/positive-perspectives/
This is what AUDERY HEPBURN said about Keeping Friends. “People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed, never throw out anyone.”
Let’s Discuss This:
The value of friendship is great. Life is about relationships. Therefore, it is our responsibility as we go through life to maintain good relationships.
We should not disconnect from our friends, we ought to cherish them. Be there for your friends through thick and thin seasons. But remember that we have the ultimate friendship with Jesus, who paid the ultimate price to redeem us all. He chooses to love us, even unto death!
As a reminder, just check your phone today, to see that friend you’ve not talked to for a while. You can reach out to him or her by text, call, or email, don’t procrastinate any longer.
About the Miracle of Life
Hear what the CHINESE PROVERBS say. “The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.”
Let’s Discuss This: For me, life is a mystery. From conception to birth, to developmental stages! I mean, think about it, about the complexities of each stage and the mystery of our everyday existence. It is amazing. Life is not accidental. There’s an invisible force, the creator of all things, the divine architect who has designed and gave a blueprint about life. To Him alone belongs the glory for the breath of life. Therefore, knowing that each day is nothing but a gift, I will rejoice, and be grateful for the gift of life. I will give thanks for all I have. And for knowing that “I’m wonderfully and beautifully made! QUOTES/WORDS OF WISDOM
About Self-Development or Creating Ourselves
Here is what JOHN DEWEY said about developing ourselves. “The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.”
Let’s Discuss This: The truth is that the daily choices we make define who we become or will become. And it is those actions that also show what we value, it shows our life’s priorities. We have to remember that our choices say much about us, our character, how we treat our lives, and others. Therefore, let us be very thoughtful, careful, and prayerful about the choices we make because that is how we create who we are or will become.
This is what WHITE ELK said about the legacy. “When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced, live your life so that when you die, the world will cry and rejoice.”
Let’s Discuss This: No matter our status today, the question we need to ask ourselves is ‘how would I like to be remembered by friends and family?
We only have now to live the best life we can. Live for a purpose. How are we using our time?
I have provided us with some useful quotes. Some are motivating, provoking, and some may be funny. Besides, I believe that there are many things many of us would like to accomplish, or even wished we had accomplished by now.
Even so, the good news is that we’re still alive in the land of the living. Consequently, instead of living in past and future regrets, let us aspire to live our lives for a purpose. Particularly, live to be remembered by God!
