Inspirational quotes…

3 years ago

Growing up, I wrote down quotes that I was particularly fond of. I’m interested to see other quotes that you all have found inspiring throughout the years. So, I suppose we could make a game out of this. Be sure to begin your post with a favorite quote, and then feel free to talk to others about their favorites!

I’ll begin with something that has helped me strive to be better than I thought I could have been.
"Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they can’t get it wrong." – Unknown

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up knowing it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle, When the sun comes up, you better be running

Off the top of my head:

1. It’s not the whistle that moves the train.

2. Kites rise against the wind, not with it.

3. Everyone’s gifted. But if you’re going to judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend all its life thinking it is foolish. – Albert Einstein

4. When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before. – Jacob Riis

5. It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that. – G.H. Hardy

6. Do or don’t. There’s no try. – Albus Dumbledore (J.K. Rowling, actually)

This I found as a powerful one. We often get lost in the illusions of love – but based upon my life’s experiences and the body of knowledge of work of M. Scott Peck and Eckhart Tolle was this definition of love formed:

“An enthusiasm to willfully and compassionately create and empower with lavish abundance.” – Adam Wallis

Socrates: Paradox…
Dan Millman: Life is a mystery. Don’t waste time trying to figure it out.
Socrates: Humour…
Dan Millman: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Socrates: Change…
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same

@tiffshigh, @mohamedmounib, @mrkdoob, @falsecandles, @szputnyik, I absolutely love your quotes, thanks for sharing!

Mine is ‘Lose your cleverness and buy yourself bewilderment.’ – Rumi

I have also recently developed a love of putting together quotes/messages, together with images… The first ones I have created are right here: http://www.brainwavelove.com/images-to-inspire/ and I hope to keep populating the blog with more… I think the combination of words+image really is a powerful one, and I simply love doing it :)

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”
-Walt Whitman

“it is the paradox of life that the way to miss pleasure is to seek it first. the very first condition of lasting happiness is that a life should be full of purpose, aiming at something outside self”
-not sure…

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
– Groucho Marx

A few of my favorites.. :)

@vitiate,
“In an economic system which is actually designed to take care of you and secure your well being with out you having to submit to a private dictatorship on a daily basis, usually to a job that is either technically unnecessary or socially pointless, while often struggling with debt that often doesn’t exist just to make ends meat, i guarantee you people will volunteer their time left and right to maintain and improve a system that actually takes care of them.” -Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (Netflix, Youtube)
