I have always thought we can learn so much from quotations. People who have lived their life and have then passed on their observations, their thoughts and their wisdom. It’s wise to question reality and open our minds to new idea’s and concepts from people who have experienced life. Here are some quotations I have found today that have made me stop and consider…


The trouble with the world is that the stupid are so confident while the intelligent are full of doubt.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.

There is nothing better than the encouragement of a good friend.

If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them.

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realise that you control your own destiny.

It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognising that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.

People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.

  1. >Beautiful…like the 2nd last one a lot. Our own issue's are often projected towards others. Very true.
