Inspirational Quotes

Updated on September 4, 2011

Words can change lives.

Inspiration is something we really need today, don't we? There are just too many problems in our lives. Wether it's financial, personal, educational or any other problems doesn't matter, they just exist. And we're always trying to make our way out. And while this effort goes on many of us give up completely. We don't seem to bother about our problems, because we know, no matter how hard we try, we're never getting rid of them. Is it like that really?

Then who were those people who, in times of crises protected their countries and fought wars for the safety of their people. Who were Abrahan Lincoln and Mother Teresa? These and many more personalities had no one behind them, all they had is courage and the will to bring difference to the world. So, this lens is about wonderful inspirational quotes that I wrote down in my diary. Most of them are anonymous because i don't actually know by whom they were written. I've also written my own quotes which i hope will be an inspiration to somebody out there. And most importantly, this lens is dedicated to one of my best friends "Alishan Khowaja", who has been a great support and inspiration to me for years. You're a great pal :).

Bill Gates

"If you're born poor, it's not your mistake...

But if you die poor, it's your mistake".


"The greatest test of courage on Earth is to bear defeat without losing heart".


"Success lies not in the result but in all the efforts. Being best is not at all important, doing the best is all that matters".


"Silence and Smile are two powerful weapons. A smile can solve many problems and silence can avoid many".

William Wordsworth

"The little unremembered acts of kindness are the best part of a person's life".


"No one in this world is rich enough to buy his own "PAST". So enjoy each moment before it gets beyond your reach".


"Victory is not the property of brilliants. It is the crown for those who bow themselves in front of hard work and confidence".


"Life is a unique combination of "how to" and "want to" and success merely falls to those who give equal attention to both".


Forget your own happiness by trying to create a little happiness for others. Remember, when you're good to others you're best to yourself".

Alenxander's beautiful last words. - Alexander the great.

"Bury my body, don't built my monument, keep my hand outside, so the world knows who won the world has nothing in hand when died".

Some more beautiful quotes.

"I'm thankful to all those who said "NO" to me. It's because of them i did it myself".

"Insecurity of losing love makes us mistakenly find the friend in them, Insecurity of losing the friend makes us fall in love with them".

"If you trust someone, trust till the end. Whatever the results may be, in the end either you'll have a very good friend or a very good lesson".

"One will find hundreds of people having abilities but very few having character. It's character that leads to success not ability. Ability will get you to the top and character will retain you at the top. So have a sound character".

A few words by me.

Below are quotes that i have written. They're just a glimpse of my experiences in life.

"Time and fate wait for none".

"Life brings challenges. Some may break you apart and some may put you back together".

"Success is not hereditary. It only comes to those who actually want it".

"Lack of understanding is as bad as lack of common sense".

My love for Style

Coco Chanel Said

Coco Chanel
