Quotes have always been inspiring and motivating people towards in Life. Often when many feel dejected it was something someone said that energised them again.
Here I am presenting some of my favourite quotes which are motivating and teach how important we are as individuals and also provide the necessary jerk to revive again when we think life has been very unfair to us and we are tired of everything happening around ourselves.
“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.” -Sylvia Plath
This is such a powerful quote on self-importance and self-love. In this quote the main focus is “I”. She wants us to realise the fact that when we close our eyes we can say that the world is dead because “I” can see nothing except complete darkness. Though the rest of the world at that moment can see life happening but I don’t believe its happening because I don’t see it. Again when we open our eyes we see the world. She wants to focus on the fact that it’s all about perception. She wants to focus on how powerful we ourselves are as individuals, that whether the world is dead or happening depends on the blink of our eyes. This quote can definitely cheer up someone who feels him/her to be worthless.
“The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend.” -Henry David Thoreau
Very few people realise it but the word FRIEND is of much more importance and worth than we give it. We randomly give the title of someone who know or have known earlier as a Friend. But I have to come to this realisation that just because you work/study with them or because that you spend most of the time of your day around certain people doesn’t make them your friend. In this quote, he said a friend only needs to be a friend. A friend doesn’t need any extra attributes of being compassionate, reliable, supportive, or loyal. Because all of these good qualities and many more like that only make a friend. One who has these qualities is only eligible to be called as a friend. You don’t need to thank the person you call as your friend for being loyal or supportive. It’s because he/she has these things for you, you call him/her as your friend. This quote might give us an indication to redefine the bonds which we call as friendship bonds and analyse how many of them are really worthy of calling a friendship bond.
“Success is when your signature turns into an autograph” -Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam
Woah! I got goosebumps when I read this quote for the first time. How powerful this saying is! What more motivation does one need to strive hard for their goal? In this quote he is saying us to make our goal that our signature becomes an autograph and work hard on the path that will lead to it. There is nothing more to say about this quote because it will get to its true meaning when the person reading it can feel the vibe the quote is trying to spread.
