Life can be complicated. It can be simple. It can be happy or sad.
Today as it was thousands of years ago.
Now, the human experience has in some ways changed but in many ways it has stayed pretty much the same.
I have shared many wonderful, insightful and awesome quotes here on The Positivity Blog over the years because of that reason. Because I think there are many things we can learn and apply to our lives from the wisest people who have been here before us.
In this article I have collected all those articles in case you have missed some of them over the years.
I hope you will find many useful and inspiring thoughts among all these quotes that will help you to live a more awesome life.
This is the biggest collection of quotes I put together so far on one of my absolute favorite topics.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you… I could walk through my garden forever.”
“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”
“To lead people, walk beside them … As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate … When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves!”
“The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in the persons with whom you are going to spend most of your working hours.”
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”
Frank A. Clark
“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”
Clay P. Bedford
“Trust the still, small voice that says, “this might work and I’ll try it.”
“If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”
“To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.”
“Don’t tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I’ll tell you what they are.”
James W. Frick
“The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is a process of elimination.”
