Happy Face

Young people in particular these days often find themselves under a lot of stress. Many people seem to find that there are too many things to try and compete against in the world today.

Jobs are becoming more scarce, and there is constant stress when it comes to school and loans. As a result, it can be quite easy for people to get down on themselves when it comes to stress, work and school. As a result, having the right quote now and then can help to cheer a person up and give them a little bit of insight when it comes to life. These quotes are designed to help people see the brighter side of their lives and perhaps inspire them to do something new and different with their lives, if necessary. Take a look at these inspirational quotes.

“Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.” – Democritus

Happiness comes and goes, but this quote is particularly insightful because it shows us that true happiness cannot be found in possessions. At the end of the day, you are going to have only yourself. Democritus helps us to find inner happiness and allows us to realize that we do not need possessions in order to feel good.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

This is a great quote for those who are interested in doing something for themselves. A lot of people these days are stuck in jobs (even work at home jobs) that they do not like, living lives that they can no longer stand. As Thoreau put it, it is up to you to create the life that you have always wanted.

“Go back a little to leap further.” – John Clarke

In this quote, Clarke states that sometimes we need to retrace our steps in order to find out how we can further progress. This may seem like the opposite of what you want to do, but you will be surprised at how much you can learn by backtracking and going over what you have done before.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

Helen Keller’s wise words offer a great level of inspiration for those who may be too afraid to try new things from time to time. There are simply two possibilities in life: the possibility that you will just sit around doing nothing and living a humdrum existence, or the possibility that you will actually go out there and make a difference to the world. This is often enough to scare many people into doing what they have always wanted to do.

“It is best to learn wisdom by the experience of others.”

This Latin proverb is something that few young people will follow, but it is always good to remember. Taking the advice of others can help you to avoid making certain mistakes.

  1. Bloody great quotes

  2. Susan Cooper says:

    Love these quotes. Young people really need to know there are bigger and better things out there. Some can be so wrapped up in what they are experiencing right now that it is hard to look beyond the day. 🙂

    • Yes, we all got to look for the future and plan for it. Living in the moment is nice but that won’t sustain you for long.
