When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen
If your problems are dragging you down, think of a bow and arrow. the Bow is your problems and the arrow is your life. The bow is dragging you further and further back, but the further back it pulls you, the higher the arrow will fly. So the further you are being dragged back by your problems, the higher you’ll reach in your life when the problems are over and let go.
They can also add a little levity to a more serious occasion. Who doesn’t like a little laugh during a wedding toast? Instead of being all serious, boring guests to tears, you can be the life of the party by offering up funny quotes from the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor, who certainly knows a thing or two about marriage: “A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished.”
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

“I have to.” One major obstacle that creates a mental resistance is the feeling of being forced to do something. It doesn’t matter whether someone else is forcing you to do it, or you yourself are using pressure to get yourself going. Telling yourself that you have to do this and do that will keep you from going the necessary extra mile, in the long run. Luckily, you are able to overcome this resistance by making it clear that you choose to do this task in order to accomplish an important goal. Reframing it as, “I chose to,” will help you to realize that success is a choice.

BFF, BBF, pal, buddy, my partner in crime – no matter how you call your best friend, he or she is the only person you can trust your secrets, tell the stupidest jokes, share your fears with and a bunch of other stuff you can do only with this person. And it’s GREAT, because that’s what makes your friendship so special. So, don’t be afraid to say ‘thank you’ to your bestie, especially when you have some great BFF quotes to choose from for this purpose.
All too often we stop pursuing a goal as soon as we encounter difficulties. These challenges are not only placing a great burden upon our shoulders, but they also make it a real struggle to move forward. Fighting day in and day out for your mission can be really tiring. However, we must not allow mental and physical tiredness to stop us from pursuing our dreams.
In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm! -Sean Morey
There is nothing more contagious in this world than a grin on the face. You don’t need a reason to show off your teeth. All you have to do is to have a positive attitude and show folks that you’re happy. The feeling is frequently contagious, and it can help make the world a better place. An outward sign of happiness makes the world seem friendlier. This simple act carries so many different meanings and emotions – from showing love to telling folks that you can trust me.
There’s a wonderful sense of well-being that begins to circulate… up and down your spine. And you feel something that makes you almost want to smile. So what’s it like to be me? Ask yourself, ‘What’s it like to be me?’ The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is. Bill Murray
So here is my challenge: If you are annoyed at work at least try to grab one of these quotes about positivity at work and think about it once a day. Treat it as a habit, a positive thought for the day at work. When you finish with the above section of quotes why not try some of these work quotes or these achievement quotes, both of which will hopefully give you a tiny bit more inspiration to accomplish great things in your career. And if your career is at a dead end, they may give you the inspiration to follow your passion and get a job you love, not hate.
Many seem to overlook the profound wisdom that can be found within this quote. But what exactly does Jimmy Dean want to tell us with this statement? Dean points out that we cannot change the external circumstances of our lives. There are simply so many variables that we cannot influence. However, we always have the choice to make the best out of the situation, no matter what happens.

The greatest challenge we need to overcome is the sluggishness that keeps us from starting what needs to be done. Even the greatest journey starts with a small step in the right direction. However, we need to be willing to make this initial effort. But once we have started walking towards our dreams it is important to never stop, no matter what happens. Only with great care and determination will we be able to realize our visions. In fact, our focus on our dreams needs to be laser-sharp. Only if we are willing to make a great effort we will be rewarded with the most astonishing and exciting gratifications.
“A woman or man of value doesn’t love you because of what he or she wants you to be or do for them. He or she loves you because your combined souls understand one another, complements each other, and make sense above any other person in this world. You each share a part of their soul's mirror and see each other’s light reflected in it clearly. You can easily speak from the heart and feel safe doing so. Both of you have been traveling a parallel road your entire life. Without each other's presence, you feel like an old friend or family member was lost. It bothers you, not because you have given it too much meaning, but because God did. This is the type of person you don't have to fight for because you can't get rid of them and your heart doesn't want them to leave anyways.”
Your willingness not to give up no matter what will bring you one step closer towards the accomplishment of your dreams. Often times, people start enthusiastically with a new task, but they soon allow challenges and setbacks to decrease their motivation. In the end, they will give up and find new goals to pursue halfhearted, which they will eventually fail as well. That is until they finally find goals that are unimportant but relatively easy to accomplish. What a way to ruin one’s potential.
“Morning drew on apace. The air became sharper and piercing, as its first dull hue: the death of night, rather than the birth of day: glimmered faintly in the sky. The objects which had looked dim and terrible in the darkness grew more and more defined, and gradually resolved into their familiar shapes. The rain came down, thick and fast; and pattered, noisily, among the leafless bushes.“
Help your old neighbor, give your seat in the subway to someone who needs it, buy a coffee for a homeless man that you see, bring flowers for your colleagues without a reason. Make someone smile, even for a brief second, and you will see how your day will change instantly for the best.

Amazing collaboration of quotes, steve mueller, I send the quotes to about 30 people in my phone and it brings them joy. The quotes are wonderful because their message is strength and the promise is hope. One day at a time is all anyone can ask for and with these quotes and explanations, you have made me overcome pitfalls in my own life. I was in active addiction and found myself being miserable and isolated because all hope was lost for me. After i began to find treatment and understood the main cause of my addiction was psychological, i began to search for things that can uplift me in the day, whether it is in the morning afternoon or at night.

It has helped plenty of people and they thank me for the wonderful quotes. So I thank you for your time and effort in putting this togethor and you have a wonderful day!!

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author unknown
