Meaningful Quote

“If you live to be 100. I want to live to be 100 minus 1 day so I would never have to live a day without you.”- A.A Milne  (Winnie The Pooh)

This quote means a lot to me in many ways. It represents the loneliness of those who have a single person to live for but also the joy and love of those who want to continue with that special someone forever. I once asked a friend if they wanted to be immortal and they said that they would never want to live forever and have to deal with life. If I had the choice though, I would have never experienced and will never experience immortality I would take up the offer if I had the chance. I think that it would mean a lot to people just so that they would never have to live a day without me if I mean something to them. I have been told multiple times that I care about others more than I do about myself( I still do care about myself) and that I take too much on myself. They’re probably right, but just living with people, no matter how hard it is, makes me happy. I probably don’t look like I care most the time but I really do. I think that even if it would infringe on my own happiness and enjoyment I am glad as long as others remain happy. This quote means a lot to me because in times of others hardships I used to always send Winnie the Pooh quotes to people because they were so simple and brought happiness but so meaningful at the same time. These quotes helped me to discover who my true friends are and the ones I want for a lifetime even if it would be impossible.


An Inspirational Quote

I never dream about success i worked for it!

-Estee Lauder


In This world there is no free lunch, you need to work in order to get somewhere in life. I really connect with quote because , I work with my dad all the time and you just cant do nothing and out of expect something out of it. I have learned that the hard way. You see all these kids in your school with great marks and your stuck with 70’s, the thing is that they worked hard and studied, they put there time and effort to achieve that grade. You think that the CEO’s of companies just lay in a chair and do nothing but actually they have one of the most stressful jobs in the world, money is not what makes them happy, its when they are able to go home and spend quality time with their family. Life is full of obstacles and its your job to push through them and live a life worth living, don’t let other people live it for you.


A Quote That Inspires Me

“I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection.”- Drake

Making a mistake is human and everyone does it. You shouldn’t spend your life trying to be something you’re not. We all have things that make us who we are and we all differ from each other. Life is too short you can’t waste your time pretending to be someone else because time is precious. You may believe that perfection is achievable but everyone has their own opinion and you can’t please everyone so just make sure you are happy. People who are fake don’t impress anyone but rather annoy them with how much they try to run away from themselves. Continue to be unique because that is where you will find the most success. At the end of the day you are who human and make mistakes but you shouldn’t try to chase something that isn’t there but rather embrace who you are.



“Go Big or Go Home” – Paul Walker

This quote by Paul means to me that if you aren’t going to give something your best shot you shouldn’t waste your time after it. This quote is also motivational to me, because then you get motivated by thinking about it, because no one wants to be known as the person who just left or didn’t try. This quote relates to me because I have wanted to leave a lot of times but I didn’t and since then this has been my favorite quote.


A Quote that Inspires Me

“Change your mind and it will change your life. If nothing around you changes, change the things that are around you.”               ~ Tyrese Gibson

This quote by Tyrese teaches me a key idea about how I should live my life and what I should do to be successful. In my life, personally, I have encountered several situations in which the people, things, and ideas made me feel almost foreign, like I did not belong there. This made me have negative feelings towards my life, my passions or interests, and even just myself as a person. As says in this quote, I decided to change the things around me; like the kind of people, my actions, and my thinking. After I did this, I, and people close to me could clearly see the change in my emotions and my attitude. I became more motivated to achieve my short-term and long-term goals, discarding other peoples opinion’s and views of my actions. I also realized that I had a more positive attitude toward thing I wanted to do in life and became more active in activities I enjoy. The most significant change I saw in myself was that I became more “put together” per say, and had a clearer mind when doing things. This quote represents the change I made to my life and how it helped me grow as a person and the experience I gained as well as a healthier mind set.




What makes a hero?

“All the best heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.” – Gerard Way

This quotes gives me hope by telling me that I have the power to be anything I dream, and that one does not have to be born great, they just need the internal strength and motivation to prosper. As humans we often focus on the negative comments and people who tell us that we can not, these people’s opinions often limit our growth and do not allow us to become the people we want to be. Instead we need to live in the correct environment that accepts we are all ordinary people that make mistakes, but these mistakes will not block us from becoming a hero, however one interprets the word. For me a hero may be someone who speaks out for those who have no voice, but the word may also mean someone who is strong, or helps others with internal and external conflicts; normal people can be all of these definitions. This quote relates to me because I am a regular person who aspires to be extraordinary, I want to do something that shapes the world and creates a better place. Heroes are created by the actions one takes, not how one is born.


Quote Explanation and Reflection

“Everything starts from a dot”

  • Wassily Kandinsky

This quote is a reference towards the world and the way that ideas are formed. The quote is an indication that all events that have occurred in the past were just ideas to begin with. I imagine that Kandinsky meant that all ingenious inventions, pieces of art, etc. started out as nothing more than a dot on a piece of paper. That a single dot can lead to the beginning of something new. The quote to me, is a large indicator that people need to get up and go explore. Although the quote is presented through the voice of an artist, I think that there is a bigger picture to the quote. You’re meant for so much more in this world than just the stereotypical roles society places on men and women. To me, the quote is meant to inspire everybody. I think that because the quote is so vague, it’s meant to have a different meaning to everyone. I think that the reader of the quote is supposed to choose what the quote means to them.


A quote that inspires me

“Kick logic to the curb and do the impossible.”

              I chose this quote because it inspires me to block out the negative things people say to me so i can truly be myself and peruse my dreams and goals. How this relates to me is that I want to be a lawyer when I grow up and every time I tell my friends or family, they keep telling me all the hard work that is needed and how you have to really smart and how much time and effort is needed and they keep telling me to find another career. But I’m still determined to become a lawyer and i just push away the negative comments and I will become a lawyer and do the impossible!


Walter bagehot quote

” the greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do”.

i really like this quote because a lot of people say that boys are better than girls and they can do so much more but a lot of girls  have proven them wrong. were we have proven that we can be equally stronger faster and smarter.and that we are all equal we shouldn’t be saying that one gender is better than the other because we both can do the same things.



” Your love makes me strong. Your hate makes me unstoppable.” ~ Cristiano Ronaldo

This quote gives me the confidence and courage to fight against even the biggest obstacles in my life, because just as the quote exclaims “Your love makes me strong”, I feel that it relates to me because I know that the love and support of my family always gives me the confidence to get back up in any situation whether it is obstacles that are personal and obstacles that are physical. I feel this quote relates to me in my every day life. For example when someone undergoes so much trouble to put me down and make me feel like I am worth nothing, this quote reminds me to persevere against all the negative comments and obstacles. Another example during my sports related obstacles; when someone in football takes me down and the crowd is screaming at me, I remember “Your hate makes me unstoppable” so this motivates me to go out of my boundaries and to get up and to prove them wrong. I believe this quote can help and assist anyone that is feeling that they have been put down and that they do not have the power to break through there barriers. I feel the people that are reading this should always remember that, the more hateful comments you receive and the more barriers that come through your path, it will just make you STRONGER.
