inspirNational Quotes III

Standard

One of my favorite Christmas presents this year was Change Your Life! A Little Book of Big Ideas, by Allen Klein. I am reading the book from cover to cover, but love that it is divided into sections in case I need a quote for a particular situation, such as “be grateful,” “alter your attitude,” and “dream the impossible dream.”

Below are some of my favorite inspirNational quotes from the book, divided into sections and adding to my previous inspirNational quotes posts (I and II):

Actions speak louder than words. Alter your attitude:

“The most powerful thing you can do to change the world, is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, people, reality, to something more positive.” -Shakti Gawain

“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” -William James

“Most people are searching for happiness. They’re looking for it. They’re trying to find it in someone or something outside of themselves. That’s a fundamental mistake. Happiness is something that you are, and it comes from the way you think.” -Wayne Dyer

Be grateful. Believe in miracles:

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you”? -William Arthur Ward

“Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold.” -Maurice Setter

“If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.” -Robert Quillen

Cultivate kindness and compassion:

“No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” -Don Swartz

“Kindess is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” -Mark Twain

“Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping them up.” -Jesse Jackson

Dream the impossible dream:

“A dream is in the mind of the believer and in the hands of the doer. You are not given a dream without being given the power to make it come true.” -Anonymous

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

“All our dreams can come true – if you have the courage to pursue them.” -Walt Disney
