Words of Wisdom: Top 25 Motivational Quotes

wisdom is quotes

He had started to suspect that his venerable father and his other teachers, that the wise Brahmans had already revealed to him the most and best of their wisdom, that they had already filled his expecting vessel with their richness, and the vessel was not full, the spirit was not content, the soul was not calm, the heart was not satisfied. The ablutions were good, but they were water, they did not wash off the sin, they did not heal the spirit's thirst, they did not relieve the fear in his heart. The sacrifices and the invocation of the gods were excellent—but were that all? Did the sacrifices give a happy fortune? And what about the gods? Was it really Prajapati who had created the world? Was it not the Atman, He, the only one, the singular one? Were the gods not creations, created like me and you, subject to time, mortal? Was it therefore good, was it right, was it meaningful and the highest occupation to make offerings to the gods? For whom else were offerings to me made, who else was to be worshiped but Him, the only one, the Atman? And where was Atman to be found, where did He reside, where did his eternal heart beat, where else but in one's own self, in its innermost part, in its indestructible part, which everyone had in himself? But where, where was this self, this innermost part, this ultimate part? It was not flesh and bone, it was neither thought nor consciousness, thus the wisest ones taught. So, where, where was it? To reach this place, the self, myself, the Atman, there was another way, which was worthwhile looking for? Alas, and nobody showed this way, nobody knew it, not the father, and not the teachers and wise men, not the holy sacrificial songs! They knew everything, the Brahmans and their holy books, they knew everything, they had taken care of everything and of more than everything, the creation of the world, the origin of speech, of food, of inhaling, of exhaling, the arrangement of the senses, the acts of the gods, they knew infinitely much—but was it valuable to know all of this, not knowing that one and only thing, the most important thing, the solely important thing?

Wise Quotes, Wisdom Sayings

wisdom is quotes

Sometimes in life, words of wisdom have a way of sinking into your brain and changing your life for the better.

Words of wisdom are helpful to anyone looking to get inspired through words that are as powerful as they are meaningful. These impactful words of wisdom will inspire you to dig deeper and leave you with purpose and motivation.

Motivation quotes play a significant role in helping us realize the potential within us. We’re counting down the ten most motivational quotes for students and workers alike:

Words of wisdom to bring out the best in you

1.)    “The best way out is always through.”- Robert Frost

When caught up in an unseemly situation, we usually look for the easy way out. And unfortunately, procrastination is the natural response. This quote serves us with a reminder that perhaps the best route is going “through” the problem, rather than around it. As a result, you find that good things begin to happen when you cease to delay and beat about the bush and take matters into your hand to resolve it.

2.)    Carpe Diem – Latin Proverb

Coined in 23 BC by Horace, the term is derived from a poem in the Odes (book 1, number 11), and means “Seize the moment”. The Latin term over the years has evolved into the most quoted Latin phrase because of its implications to capture life’s opportunity and live life to the fullest!

3.)    “Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

In each of our lives, there is this one person – if not ourselves – who holds us back in accomplishing our dreams. What better feeling to prove that very person wrong by conquering your worst fears and doubts.

Words of wisdom to help you fulfill your potential

4.)    “Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail.” – Charles Kettering

Believe that it is absolutely impossible to fail, and you might just start acting as per your thinking as well! In spite of the worries that things may not work out, believe in its possibility, and your actions will reflect this positivity too!

5.)    “Keep steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.” – Theodore T. Hunger

Hunter tells us about how ultimately, our success and failure comes down to us- our hard work, our tenacity, and our perseverance.

6.)    “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao Tzu

Your goal may be big, and at times, it may seem impossible and difficult. You will feel like you’re failing and you’re not getting anywhere. But perseverance, belief and conviction in those small steps that you’re taking towards those goals is what you need to be confident about. Consistently follow your life mission, one step at a time, no matter how small the step may be.

Words of wisdom to help unlock your full potential

7.)    “Opportunity is always knocking. The problem is that most people have the self-doubt station in their heads turned up way too loud to hear it” – Brian Vaszily

This funny motivational quote by Vaszily succinctly describes how we are the biggest enemies of ourselves, standing in the way of our success and accomplishments. Either we do not understand out true potential, or we begin to doubt our skills. It’s time to put aside all the worries to focus on what and how we can achieve excellence.

8.)    “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi

Every day we see the violence around us. While there is very little that we can do, the Indian political leader says it best. Start with the man in the mirror. Be the change you want to see within others. While you can’t influence the world, you can be a better human, and become the testament of the change.

9.)    “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” – Dr. Robert Schuller

As the weather gets harsher and tougher, it’s time to brace yourself! The difficult times are simply temporary, but it is due to those tough and difficult times that you are stronger today. The best part is that you are now tougher today than you were yesterday! And more importantly, you got through it all. Celebrate your strength!

10.)  “You must not only aim right, but draw the bow with all your might.” – Henry David Thoreau

So you’re focused and know exactly what you want? It’s not enough. Thoreau tells us through a beautifully accurate metaphor how it’s not just enough to know the right direction, but also do everything possible to get to the finish line!

More words of wisdom to inspire and motivate you

11.) “Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.” – Anne Frank

12.) “Soon, when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad that you never gave up.” – Brittany Burgunder

13.) “You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.” – Rosa Parks

14.) “Strive not to be a success but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein

15.) “The best revenge is massive success.” – Frank Sinatra

16.) “It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.” – Vince Lombardi

17.) “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” – Thomas Paine

18.) “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.” – Mark Caine

19.) “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” – Og Mandino

20.) “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison

22.) “You can never plan the future by the past.” —Edmund Burke

23.) “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” —Friedrich Nietzsche
