This page with quotes about life and with motivational pictures is a page I have wanted to make for a long time, but somehow there was always something else that had to be done first
Right now my life is not so busy, and that gave me an opportunity to read and re-read all the great and meaningful quotes and sayings that I have collected through the last years.
Actually there are so many. Some of them mean a lot to me for a period, then somehow they lose the power, but then it seems that some other quote is just what I need for the next period of my life.
There are some people who have said things that mean a lot to
me about life, how we live our life, and maybe how we could
live our life more fulfilling.
I might not agree with all their views on life, God or love, but I find that what they have to say is so helpful for me to see new ways of thinking and living.
I have made some of these quotes and sayings into life quotes pictures, and I really hope you will like them.
As background I have used some of the photos I have taken on my walks in the park, photos of water, trees, stone, and combined them in a way I think is beautiful.
I hope you will use some of these quotes, either to give you a meaning in your life right now, or to send to someone you like to share your thoughts with.
About using my material, please go to Homepage. As long as you use it for your own personal purposes , there are no limitations, and even if you want to use it for something else, the rules are so simple and few.
Most of the time I find myself living half-hearted, I guess. Doing what I am used to do, taking care of my kids and my grandchildren, walking in the park, when the weather is ok. Buying food, preparing food, watching TV or series.
All the kind of things that you normally do, things that are working OK.
But then sometimes you stop and start thinking if this is the life you want to live the rest of your life? Not that there is anything wrong with the things you do, but it seems that somehow you have forgotten the dreams you once had.
I have often had this kind of wake up calls, small ones and big ones. (I am normally not that keen on the big ones, because they seem to come from big crises, so I prefer the smaller ones.)
I don't think you always have to change the way you live, to become satisfied with your life. Sometimes you do, but often it is enough to become aware, to see things anew. And here quotes about life can help, at least they help me in seeing things from a different angle.
Here comes some quotes without pictures, quotes and sayings I find can help you in your way of seeing your life and the world you live in:
"The challenge life presents to each of us is to become truly ourselves--not the self we have imagined or fantasized about, not the self that our friends want us to be, not the self our ego would have us be."- Matthew Kelly
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.” ~William W. Purkey
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.” ~ John Green
"Not forgiving somebody is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die."
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and
love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are
in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion,
excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves
first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot
love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love
others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for
a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted
vision of people who embrace life.”
~ John Lennon ~
That last quote means a lot to me. So often in my life have I tried to fight life, because something happened to my family or to me which I found unbearable unfair and also simply unbearable.
I fought life, and each time it cost me pain and tears, and each time I lost.
When I gave up fighting, everything somehow seemed to fall into place. So I am trying to learn not to fight life - although I am not 100% sure I will not do it again.
The picture quote above is of Wayne Dyer, and here comes some more beautiful quotes:
“All blame is a waste of time."
~ Wayne Dyer ~
“Love is the ability and willingness to allow those
that you care for to be what they choose for themselves
without any insistence that they satisfy you.”
~ Wayne Dyer ~
I actually think there are so many really, really good inspirational picture quotes to find, quotes that can give you a new way of seeing your life, and how you prioritize in your life.
I have found many of the quotes I use for my picture quotes here, where it seems that the author of the articles with quotes has selected quotes that hold a lot of value to me.
