“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.” ~ George Washington Carver
“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” ~ Ray Bradbury
“Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and its spectacular.” ~ Joseph Campbell
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time. A schedule is a mock-up of reason and order—willed, faked, and so brought into being; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living. Each day is the same, so you remember the series afterward as a blurred and powerful pattern.” ~ Annie Dillard, The Writing Life
“I discovered that people are not really afraid of dying; they’re afraid of not ever having lived, not ever having deeply considered their life’s higher purpose, and not ever having stepped into that purpose and at least tried to make a difference in this world.” ~ Joseph Jaworski, Synchronicity
“The only way I can experience my life as meaningless is to work as hard as I possibly can to tell myself it has no meaning. At a deeper level of reality, my life can’t help but have meaning, because everything is continually unfolding, and I am connected into that unfolding in ways that I can’t even imagine.” ~ Joseph Jaworski, Synchronicity
Hi, I'm Matt!...The guy behind the scenes. I started MoveMe Quotes in October of 2010 with the intention of creating a beautiful, ad-free website where the motivation had the priority - not the ads. Today, MoveMe Quotes welcomes well over 100,000 visitors/ month and I remain true to my original intentions by keeping MMQ an ad-free site so that you may experience the power of words in a distraction-free environment. If you find inspiration here or find yourself moved by our resources, please consider making a donation to help keep MMQ alive and beautiful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
