Words of wisdom nourish the soul and help inspire you to reach for all your dreams, no matter what they are. They remind you that you can do anything; that the possibilities are truly limitless.


Many of my past articles have focused on inspirational tips on ways you can and are achieving all your dreams. And, when I need an extra boost of confidence or energy (”inner chi”), I often turn to the great minds of this world. Their words of wisdom are truly food for thought and priceless nourishment to the soul.

In my experience, I have found that even one quote can so profoundly affect me that it actually changes my entire outlook on life. I am certain these quotes will help to keep you headed confidently toward the field of dreams in your imagination.

Always remember: It’s there, it’s attainable, anything you can dream of you can achieve. Anything you can fathom is a picture waiting to be developed. Any thought is a miracle about to be created! Never let anyone, including yourself tell you differently!

So, look toward every great achievement you have experienced for inspiration and strength. Remember the challenges in life like necessary exercise to ensure that you have the endurance to persevere through anything in life. When you think you have fallen down or failed, see these moments as times when you may have simply needed someone to pick you up and remind you that you are loved or cared for; this is natural and something everyone goes through.

Do not see it as a weakness. Can a flower grow without proper sunlight, soil and water? Is the flower a failure because it cannot always water itself or it grew in a place where the sun didn’t shine as brightly?

Soak in the knowledge and wisdom of all you come upon, for such things are the greatest forms of love.

Below is a collection of some inspirational quotes that are sure to lift the spirit!



“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
Alan Kay (1940 – )
Computer scientist

“I’m here to build something for the long term. Anything else is a distraction.”
Mark Zuckerberg (1984 – )
Founder and CEO, Facebook

“What we must decide is how we are valuable rather than how valuable we are.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)
American novelist

    Awesome, brilliant and more. I think we should keep this always in our minds, as alot of us just need a litte vote of confidence. When one feels down a inspirational thought makes a huge difference. Great article Liane, well written and well put together.

    God Bless and take care

    Great article. I see you put a lot of time and research into it. Here is another one that had a great influence on American people: my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country(JFK).

    Inspired by inspiration declared, I do declare. Sound redundant? It is because that which is of worth, bears repeating, I once heard. I am saving this page with my “favorites” since it is not something you can take in all at once and, I need to read it again and again, for reinforcement is a good thing, like the Bible, oh, how many times I’ve read the Good Book and always, something new, something perceived that just wasn’t there before, or was it? It probably was, I just didn’t get it the first time and even if I did, I maybe didn’t make it mine. In any case, it doesn’t hurt to look again for, just like love, you need to renew constantly as opposed to “I told her I love her once, it’s in my pocket now, no more need to say it again, right?
    Wrong, wrong for the soul needs renewing and reaffirmation like love is a flower that must be watered every day or it will wilt and eventually die from neglect so is the heart and spirit in need of daily renewal. Good stuff Liane. It is always about working towards that “if you are going to do it, it is worth doing well or not at all” kind of philosophy. Put another way, “All the way in or all the way out, don’t sit on the fence wondering what’s it all about” Annnnd I’m done.
