I turned 27 earlier this month and I wanted to do 27 things for my birthday bla bla bla kinda post. Well i didn’t do that (I couldn’t be arsed to be honest) but what I did do was choose some of my favourite quotes. For those of you that know me, know that quotes are my life and soul; they keep me going on dark days and highly focused on good ones. So today I thought I’d share some of the ones that help me. Maybe they’ll fire up your blood too 🙂
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
– Maya Angelou
Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.
— Robin Sharma
Do or do not. There is no try.
A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
— Author Unknown
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
— Mark Twain
If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.
— Vincent Van Gogh
Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.
— Farrah Gray
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
— Dalai Lama
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.
— Mother Teresa
Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.
The harder I work, the luckier I get.
Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
− George Bernard Shaw
Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.
