    • Kole Koford

      Lets see you come up with something better. Obviously you think of yourself being so “articulate and witty” why not prove yourself?

      • denverover

        Today is the tomorrow we had yesterday.

        • Kole Koford

          I learned what tomorrow meant in grade school, but I will applaud, in regard to your efforts. (Even if that was an already existing quote :P)

          “The flavor of life will strike you as bitter with the first taste, but with acceptance, will become the daily ritual that you will learn to appreciate and respect as it becomes sweeter when you adjust” – Me

          • denverover

            Do not seek knowledge, it is of yesterday, seek wisdom it is of tomorrow.

        • Kole Koford

          I am by no means a teacher. And as for your last quote, it does seem a bit…. Anti-White, concluding that they assumed they were better, only because they figured we are all “extremists”- that take land by force, as well as trick natives into poverty.This is the 21st century; disregarding even that fact, we were seeking refuge away from oppressive living…. So can you blame them?
          There’s a race war going on, that is influenced by media propaganda which is why I don’t take these topics lightly.

          I do, however, enjoy your consciousness and conviction within your words, as you have every right to do so :D you have made a compelling semi-argumentative statement that is insightful, so I bid thee to carry on.

          And as for the moderator, you might as well take my comments down too, if you really are that disgusted with someone’s opinion…..

          • denverover

            You can call it anti-white, if you want, that doesn’t change the fact, that what he said was the truth.
            I’m only here in answer to your reply, KK

  • loved the last one.

  • interesting stuff

  • Nishad

    really inspiring one ………

  • phlangeface

    i hate these.

    • Blaine

      Why? At least indulge us with reasoning. For without reasoning one is wrong to expect anyone to just go along with it.

      • mr7yh

        There is no need for reasoning as hate and negativity are only a cry for help … to be able to see the beauty in the same way as others do and enjoy with their open heart. Patience… true love and happiness will open the gates. Even he who hates has love inside.

  • Nobody is born with prejudice or hate, it is learned over time. This means the problem is solvable if choose to do something about it.

    • denverover

      Live as a little chid.

  • Ching

    They are great when you need to be cheered up! Thanks :)

  • Inspiring

  • Love them all, thanks. I especially like the one that reads “discover consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes”

  • Dbakeca Italia

    I liked all these quotes. Thumbs up ! You just made me a happy day…

  • Cyndi

    Thought provoking and uplifting. Thank you

  • Buzz

    A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor! exactly what I needed to read today.
    thank you

    • Hoodrich

      I feel sorry for you if you need to read an inspirational quote to change your outlook on the day.

      • Travis

        I’m not sure why you would feel sorry for them. Changing one’s outlook based on reading an inspirational quote is no different than taking someone’s advice.

        • Some people often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why I recommend it daily.

          • ijustwantto


          • Mark S. Fitzgerald

            Richard: if you must quote Zig Ziglar, at least have the common courtesy to add his name at the end of the quote. BTW…this was one of Zig’s favorite quotes to use in talking with clients.

      • Tracy Ford

        Yet you’re here reading them.

      • Heaven

        is that not what theyre for?

      • cc

        Go away

        • A.J.

          haha, and everyone just missed the point of these quotes. people online are so quick to insult and get violent cause you’ll probably never meet the person you’re talking to. but that’s pretty dumb reasoning, be nice to people. these quotes are cool and everyone who reads them, regardless of if they needed a boost that day or not, still gets alittle inspiration. that’s what they’re for. just read and enjoy guys, no need to argue

      • Haley G.

        Fuck this guy.

      • I feel sorry for you if you have to unload your own negativity on a page that is designed to cheer you up. You must be so pessimistic if after reading these inspiring quotes you are still in a foul mood and feel it necessary to drag everyone else down into your pit of morbidity.

      • Al Kahuna

        …and what a loathsome,lonely DICK you must be for making such a stupid reply to a decent comment.

      • Trevor

        what a loser

        • Trevor

          you went through that entire list of amazing quotes…then decided that they don’t help you… i don’t think anything helps a person who doesn’t want help

  • drewjthomas

  • heath touchcing quotes

  • Jeff Ginter

    Thank you, This was better way to begin my day.

  • Conley

    Favorite quote of all time… “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” Nothing’s going to hit you harder than life so it’s difficult to forget the past or worry about the future. However, I try my best to live my life the best I can everyday, and that’s what truly matters to myself and to others. Live in the moment and ride the waves of life. Some will be amazing, others will be terrible, but everything will eventually fall into place for a reason. Believe it or not, I got this quote from the movie, Kung Fu Panda!!! He’s one damn wise turtle haha

  • mini

  • Caring Jack

    Wow, these quotes are so inspiring and beautiful, thank you so much for taking the time to gather all of them. Must’ve been some hard, rewarding work. Like you, I believe in words and the power behind them. If you listen closely, they shall enunciate the truth. I recently found an entire book filled with quotes of wisdom, inspiration and motivation. I highly recommend it to all of you. It’s called Words reduced to essence: Wisdom and practical quotes by Ionut Breb. You can find it on Amazon. It did wonders for me. :)
