25 Extremely Inspirational Quotes With Beautiful HD Images To Remember

Published

on

By

Here I put together 25 different quotes with detailed explanation to go with each one to remember why it is so important. Hope you enjoy reading through them 🙂

1. Everything will be okay as soon as you are okay with everything. And that's the only time everything will be okay.

Nothing will be okay until you come to terms with who you are, what you want and what your ultimate goal in your life is. You need to set your priorities straight, and then each day wake up with the determination to achieve them all.

Advertisements

2. One thing I have learned in life is that it is important to be comfortable with uncertainty.

Life is undoubtedly a scary thing for us all. But what's the point in living the rest of our lives if we stay stuck in our comfort zones? We must therefore learn to take risks, and be brave enough to face life, fearless and strong. After all, uncertainty is what makes life that much more interesting and adventurous, to discover.

3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. We receive from the world what we give to the world...

When you do good things in your life, good things will come back to you. The same applies to your thoughts. Think good, receive good. Actions and thoughts are equally important, because they shape your ultimate reality. Never underestimate the power of you. You have the power to be something great, or something not so great. At the end of the day, it's all in your hands - and once you realize this, you will understand why it's so much better to just be on the good side of things.

Advertisements

4. Hurting someone can be as easy as throwing a stone in the sea. But do you have any idea how deep that stone can go?

As human beings we often make mistakes and one of them includes causing hurt to others out of negative emotions such as anger and sadness. We may do this intentionally or unintentionally. But we hurt others when we are hurt, and sometimes we don't realize how deeply it can wound someone else.

5. Learning never exhausts the mind.

Learning is what keeps the human mind active. It makes you wonder and think about different possibilities, answers and solutions to life. It makes you question what life is all about. It's a big world out there and life is too short, and there's just so much to learn. So go and explore. You will never get tired of learning when you begin to see the reality and beauty of the world.

Advertisements

6. What makes things memorable is that they are meaningful, significant, colourful.

When you're in a dark place or bad mood in your life, don't you tend to remember things that add colour to your life? Perhaps a funny joke or someone who inspires you? Or perhaps, a meaningful hobby that you love to do because it distracts you, it helps you convert your sadness to happiness? Well, these things we remember more because they make us forget our tough times. They make life much easier for us. We can never forget such things; they are our escape, when there is no other escape. We value these things because they add value to our own life. We remember these things as the light in our dark times.

7. In order to really write, one has to sink deep into the self and become lost there.

In life so much happens that we as human beings will lose touch with reality, including ourselves. Sometimes when you lose yourself, you can't quite figure out who you are. You try to understand yourself, but you can't, because you're so lost and buried deep into some kind of mess. You find it hard to express yourself to other people because you think that nobody understands you - but the truth is how can they understand you if you can't understand you? and so... you eventually discover that the easiest way to express yourself is through self-expression in some form of art, maybe writing. You write to express your raw emotions, feelings and thoughts in words, on paper. And in this way, you begin to find yourself. You finally start to understand that you were born to be a writer.

8. Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Throughout our lives we experience different moments that give us feelings of happiness/joy. Maybe it might be a fun day at a theme park with your family or simply spending some time with someone you love. It's these moments, which you wish lived forever because they are special to you. But don't be upset. Learn to accept embrace such moments and keep them as memories to cherish with a smile on your face. You can always build new moments and memories.

Advertisements

9. Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Life is too short to take everything so seriously. Let go a little and live. Live your life to the fullest and find reasons to laugh more than reasons to cry. We all die in the end so what's the point in living a miserable life when you have the power to change that and just choose to be happy? Choose to take ownership of your life, because you never know when it might end. Make the most out of it. Make it count while you're here.

10. Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.

As well as good days, there will also be bad days in your life. On these days it will be much tougher to get through your day for reasons personal to you (maybe it's depression or you're just suddenly feeling tired and lazy). You will experience these days silently. No one else will know this except you because it's an internal struggle. But as long as you keep reminding yourself "this too shall pass", you will be able to face the next day with a stronger mindset. You can and will succeed tomorrow. Keep telling yourself this. With every bad day, there comes a good day afterwards. You can get through it.

Advertisements

11. Everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

One thing that is certain about life is change. Everything and everyone changes, including you. Life is simply all about adapting to the changes and learning about them as you go along to become a better you. You must also learn to trust yourself in the process because if you keep relying on others to guide you, one day they might stop and turn their backs against you. So don't get too attached to people or situations because you never know when they might suddenly change; just be prepared for it. Let yourself embrace all of it and be ready to move forward from whatever downfall you may have to face.

12. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

If you ever find yourself in the middle of a huge list of problems in your life, don't think of it as the end of everything. Understand why you have those problems first, and then think about what you can do to overcome them. Use your problems as an opportunity to face them with courage and strength and fight through them. They won't last forever because you have the perfect capability to reduce your difficulties. You can do it.

Advertisements

13. There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.

As much as we like to help and improve others, we must not forget that there is a risk that our work and effort will turn out to be useless. We cannot be certain that our help will definitely improve someone else's universe, which is why sometimes we must take a step back and put some focus on ourselves. This is what we must learn to do. We have to take the time to give ourselves the help and support that we so freely give to others. We deserve our own help. We deserve to be better individuals.

14. The grass is not 'greener' on the other side - it is just another shade of green.

Do you ever find yourself comparing yourself to other people? Your level of success, your looks, your personality, your everything? Well, stop that. For example you might think that someone is more successful than you, but it's actually just another 'shade' of success - think about it: maybe their success is smaller because they didn't work as hard as you did to attain your level of success. Or maybe their success is bigger because they worked harder than you, so now what's the point of comparing yourself to them if you know the obvious reason? So realize that you can work harder than you already are to reach the higher levels of success. It's not always a better shade on the other side of people's lives. You just don't know the undercover hard work that's been done. Stop comparing. Be better. Work harder. The more you achieve for yourself, the less you will need to compare.

Advertisements

15. The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else's highlight reel.

At some point in your life you have or will have compared yourself to others who are more successful than you. This is normal because most people do it. The problem with this is that it is easy to do because people don't know the amount of hard work and effort that has been invested for someone to become successful and hence feeling insecure and less successful doesn't take much effort; the feeling just comes automatically and naturally. However... If you really take the time to observe someone's successful outcome, take a closer look behind the scenes (the amount of work hours, sleepless nights, emotional roller coasters, health issues, sacrifices they put in) - only then you will stop comparing yourself because if they can do it, then you can do it too.

16. If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from the inside.

When it feels like you've lost so much in your life (it could be valuable time, friendships, money, sanity, anything) it doesn't mean that you're completely broken. Sometimes these things happen because of your lack of ability to deal with such things. Or maybe they happen for a much bigger purpose; to awaken you from the inside and to make you a much wiser person. Once you learn the inner lesson, your approach to life around you will be that much better. And hopefully, you will regain everything that you lost back but in a much better form.

Advertisements

17. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

18. It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

19. And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Advertisements

20. Life is like a piano. The white keys represent happiness and the black shows sadness. But as you go through life's journey, remember that the black keys also make music.

21. Until you realize how easily it is for your mind to be manipulated, you remain the puppet of someone else's game.

Advertisements

22. It is better to have a short meaningful life and make a difference than to have a useless long life and do absolutely nothing good or worthy.

23. Do not ruin today with mourning tomorrow.

Advertisements

24. Yes, time flies, but sometimes you should also take your time.

25. The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go...
