Inspirational Quotes and Icons

Updated on February 24, 2013

Be Inspired Today!

I have always liked reading short stories or quotes that are just SO right to the point! Quotes have become very popular and everyone seems to be really into them. :D I don't blame them because quotes are great. Quotes comes from famous people, inventors, poets, celebrities and people that go through every day life experiences. Quotes to me are like reminders, free advice, reflection time, and life lessons. I love quotes, but I especially love quotes that can inspire people.

Here I have gathered a large amount of inspiring quotes & icons, but still adding more to it as long as the internet exists. :P I only add quotes that aren't very known or read by people. I like to read quotes that I have never read before and I'm sure you do too. I hope you enjoy reading these quotes as much as I had. Feel free to take them with you and also be sure to spread them. Check back often because I do update. Thank you & have a great day. Also remember to always SMILE! :) :D ;] ^__^

You're too young to be in love.

No you're too old to remember what love is.

Be Yourself

No matter how loud their opinions are, others cannot choose who you are. The question should not be, "Why don't they like me when I'm being me?" It should be, "Why am I wasting my time worrying what they think of me?" If you are not hurting anyone with your actions, keep moving forward with your life. Be happy. Be yourself. If others don't like it, then let them be. Life isn't about pleasing everybody. -Mark & Angel

Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again. -unknown

The real measure of your wealth is how much you are worth when you have lost all your money. –Lezzet

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. -E.E. Cummings

Nobody is perfect until you fall in love with them.

Lesson Of Time - Karma

When a bird is alive, it eats ants.

When the bird is dead, ants eat the bird.

Time and circumstances can change at any time.

Don't devalue or hurt anyone in life.

You may be powerful today, but remember:

Time is more powerful than you!

One tree makes a million match sticks,

Only one match stick needed to burn a million trees

So be good and do good.

Dalai Lama

"The planet does not need more

successful people. The planet

desperately needs more peacemakers,

healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of all kinds."

A List of GREAT Quotes

& Still Adding More :)

1.) Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.

2.) It's not your job to change people, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda.There's always a part of you that believes you can change someone, but the reality is... you can't. You can only change yourself. Don't carry someone elses burdens, it will be to heavy on your heart and be like a pebble in your shoe.

3.) You don't have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that just shows how shaky your own position is.

4.) The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything. -Theodore Roosevelt

5.) The more you extend kindness yourself, the more it will become your automatic response to others. -Wayne Dyer

6.) You can still stand up for yourself without stomping another to the ground. We all must learn to make our point without making an enemy.

7.) Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. -Dr.Seus

8.) What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.) When we complain, we remain. When we whine, we stay behind. When we praise, we raise. -Jim Bakker

10.) Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting. -Elizabeth Bibesco

11.) The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. -Leo Buscaglia

12.) Why do we hurt the ones who love us most? Because we think they will always forgive us. But one day they wont, so each day lets try alittle harder to be alittle kinder, to understand more and criticize less.

13.) When angry, count to ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred. -Thomas Jefferson

14.) Life is short, but there is always enough time for courtesy. If you couldn't/wouldn't say it to their face -- then dont do it via your keyboard.

15.) The poor, the unsuccessful, the unhappy, the unhealthy are the ones who use the word 'tomorrow' the most. -Robert Kiyosaki

16.) Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

17.) Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life.

18.) The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of all kinds. -Dalai Lama

Success is the best revenge.
