monday words of wisdom

quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.
~ A.A. Milne

Do you ever have a hard time finding the right words to express yourself? Have you ever found yourself reaching for an old saying instead of thinking something over in the moment? When is a cliché or platitude more useful than an original thought?

So much of what we pass along as commonly accepted wisdom comes in the form of memorable short phrases or quotes that stand the test of time. Often times we don’t even give these words a second thought, because we’ve heard them so many times and they roll off our tongue so easily.

Every culture, every family, and every community has it favorites. Witty words of wisdom can serve to empower us, or hinder us with subconsciously limiting beliefs. They become memetic mantras of meaning that are passed along from generation to generation.

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” “He who laughs last, laughs best.” “A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.” The supply of phrases like this are virtually endless, forming a thread of thought through every society.

Nowadays we think of memes as funny or shocking images with words superimposed over them that get passed around online. But long before the term was coined by Richard Dawkins in 1976 these verbal “old saws” were one of the fundamental ways that ideas and values were passed around.

(by the way, how many of you remember the “All Your Base Are Belong To Us” craze of 1998? It became obvious early on that this new Internet medium was an ideal method of passing around silly or not so silly ideas.)

Wise quotes or words of wisdom can often be contradictory, which gives us an even more valuable opportunity to think for ourselves as we sort out the conundrums. Is “he who hesitates” really lost? Or is it wiser to “look before you leap”?

I think that one reason these old sayings catch on is because they are such elegant ways of expressing a thought or feeling. Paulo Coelho talks about the difference between elegance and arrogance, pointing out that the former arouses respect and love, while the latter attracts hate and envy.

The simplicity of a succinct saying is indeed elegant in its pared-down minimalism, yet when wielded dismissively or in the spirit of rudeness can come across as the height of arrogance. But often a long-winded explanation is more clearly expressed with a truism, it’s the spirit behind it that counts.

It’s fun to examine the sayings that are stuck in our heads, and unpack how they’ve served us in our lives. Maybe you’ve got a few ‘old bromides’ bouncing around between your ears that are worth looking at literally to find the underlying belief?

I was driving with my 10-year-old daughter Geneva recently, and she was doing her best in her inquisitive way to stump me with a series of questions. I teased her by saying I was too old to know anything anymore, and that one of the benefits of aging is that our minds get emptier as we go along.

So I made a game out of it, and told her that I had gradually replaced all of my knowledge with quotes and old sayings, so that I would have one for any question she could ask.

“Why are forests so shady?” Because “the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.” “Why do I have to go to school?” Because “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” “Can I have dessert when we get home?” “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”

Before long I had her totally bamboozled, and I realized that there is probably a platitude for every problem. So much of life is like a Zen koan, the mysteries of life seldom reveal their meaning until they’ve been lived through.

Something to ponder on your Monday morning dance of life! May your words of wisdom ring true from your heart and and let your intuition and intellect separate the wheat from the chaff in your basket of beliefs. Empowered and elegant is the way to go, it all starts with a word!

Much love and happy grooving in your week ahead!

34 Quotes to Motivate You on Monday

monday words of wisdom

Oprah Winfrey delivered an impactful, motivational commencement speech at Colorado College on Sunday, and it's the inspiration you need to get through the Monday blues.

Per usual, the media mogul, 65, was poignant, thoughtful, and gave over 500 students in attendance chills, along with advice they will be able to implement for the rest of their lives.

"I’m here to tell you that you actually do get to transform the world every day by your actions. Small steps lead to big accomplishments," she said, according to the university's coverage of the speech.

(MORE: You'll never guess what Oprah bought after earning her first million dollars)

Winfrey told the captivated audience that "life is about decisions" and not to try and fix everything. But there is one decision the young graduates could make right then and there.

"And the decision is that you will use your life in service; you will be in service to life. You will speak up. You will show up. You will stand up. You will sit in. You will volunteer. You will vote. You will shout out. You will help. You will lend a hand. You will offer your talent and your kindness however you can, and you will radically transform whatever moment you’re in -- which leads to bigger moments," she continued.

Winfrey stressed that the most important contribution these graduates can make in the real world is "touching other people's lives."

She also had words of wisdom on overcoming failure and finding one's true purpose.

"For years I had a job. Through that job, doing a lot of things I didn't want to do, I got demoted and discovered my life's calling," she admitted of her early days working in news. "Many times there are things that look like failure in your will pass. You will be fine."

"The bumps in the road led me to a path made clear, and that is what I wish for you today -- that your path is made clear," she added.

Winfrey came to speak at Colorado College because of 19-year-old Palesa Mokoena, a student guided by the game-changing businesswoman via her Leadership Academy. The young woman, who hails from South Africa, calls Winfrey "Mom O."

“She has been an incredible mentor to me, and her promise to Nelson Mandela to build a school in South Africa changed the trajectory of my life. The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls is the greatest gift to my country and to me. For that, I am eternally grateful,” Mokoena said.
