Quote Life. Don’t Just Do Something. Sit There!

I rarely come across people who do not like quotes and for those that don’t like it, I wonder how they must feel when they find their social media feeds full of them. To be able to quote life in a few words is a major accomplishment in my opinion. To be able to say something which becomes a “quote”. WOW.

Quote word gains it origin somewhere around 16th century. Almost 5 centuries ago. What began as citation of texts or personal remarks slowly took form of fashion and the words began to spread in letters, notes, plays, ads, word-of-mouth etc. Slowly the medieval word kinda took over the world until making reference to others or citing a text or a person became a worldwide phenomenon by the 20th century.

Scroll down your feed on any social media and you will notice minimum ten quotes, yes even in blogging. I have an old notebook from my school times. It’s full of quotes and there are so many different types of marking. For example, three stars against an important quote, two against another, you get the idea. I recently read many posts containing quotes and loved so many of them. So I thought I’ll dedicate a post to quotes.

So your love back to you lovely people:

…Quote Life…

Work hard to get what you like, else you may have to work harder to like what you get… Either way you will end up working.

I came across this quote on myheartbeats4ublog. I came across Hari’s blog after he asked me to checkout his blog. He writes amazing stories, checkout his blog. About the quote, do I need say more? Every working person knows the reality and youngsters, I hope for you all that you end up working at what you like.

“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little thingsโ€ฆ I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.”

~ Leo Buscaglia

I found this gem just today mpjethwa‘s blog. When I quote this to my boyfriend he started singing, “I want to live like an animal. Careless and free.” It’s a song by Savage Garden and it’s awesome. Wanna listen? Click here.

Thought shall be the harder, heart the keener, courage the greater as our might grow smaller. In dark times the eyes begins to see. The owl of Minerva flies at dusk. When the heart weeps at what it has lost, the spirit laughs at what it has found.

I found Dave’s Nomad In Cyberspace blog luckily. He is every bit inspiring and nice person. His blog posts are fun and on different topics. He has this ability to bring to life topics that require details and he does it with fun and style. Checkout his blog here.

One of my favorite bloggers.

Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

~Judy Garland

“Transformation is not a future event, it is a present activity”

~ Jillian Michaels

I read this quote on a Wednesday Wisdom tile from an amazing Dutch girl Samantha’s blog posts. Her blog is called Dictionary Dutch. Her blog name itself is amazing. She writes detailed posts about meaning of words and reading it is always fun. My favorites come when she includes Dutch words or other language words too. It’s fun.

Here’s a few from my book….

Two things are infinite. The Universe and Human Insanity. I am not sure about the Universe.

~Albert Einstein

Never give up. Quote

Quotes have played a wonderful part in my life. When I am down they have cheered me up, when someone else needed it I have given it to them. Here’s a link to my posts onย three-day quote challenge. Quote challenge is awesome. It brought out so many favorite quotes of some of the most wonderful people.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.

~ Anton Chekhov

I hope to read many more in my lifetime. Have fun people. ๐Ÿ™‚ see you.

  1. Great post! I love quotes. Love to use them in a post, too. When I see one I like, I save it on a list of quotes I store, never know when you might need one!!

    1. umm are you sure you didn’t read it somewhere and gave it your own twist? Throughout history many people have said these words, yours is closest to Faarah Gray or Bob Dylan. Sorry to say but I have been reading this line since sometime. Very nice line though! Keep it up.

      1. may be the idea must have germinated from somewhere. and quite possibly similar thoughts would have been expressed thru history! inadvertant, but be rest assured, the last thing would be to borrow ideas

        1. 100% sure about that! that’s why I asked actually. Ideas have been popping up in minds throughout history and we tend to resonate with someone sooner or later. It’s amazing I think, just imagine someone in 20th century thinking along the lines of someone in 17th! It’s fun and amazing, it’s like minds conversing… What say? and too many people work with borrowed ideas, many find their way through it and some get lost.

          PS> I am glad you didn’t take it personally! One blogger unfollowed me for asking so once! lol

          Have a wonderful Evening ๐Ÿ™‚

          1. hmmm.. also, googled and got this(Work hard to get what you like, otherwise youโ€™ll be forced to like what you get – originator unknown)
            and, of course, I took it personally – that’s why research and all that stuff, but that was a natural human reaction. But the lesson learned is that I must be more careful in future.
            thanx a lot and have a nice day too …ma’am!

  2. Wonderful post! I find such inspiration in others words. I think we’ve been quoting forever. Take the Bible for instance a book which formed thousands of years ago. Or even the riddle of the Sphinx from Greek Mythology. Very cool ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Bible has so many uplifting words. I want to sit quietly someday and read it full. I like religious books for the humanity it teaches us. Thanks for stopping by Mandibelle. ๐Ÿ™‚
