“Sometimes our grandiose plans to do great things at some later time interfere with our chances to do little things right now.” ~ Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.” ~ Alfred D’Souza
“Study everything, but study yourself first.” ~ Ralph Smart, infinitewaters.net
“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” ~ Mother Teresa
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~ Lao Tzu
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.” ~ Abigail Adams
“In the pursuit of knowledge, something is added every day. In the pursuit of enlightenment, something is dropped every day.” ~ Lao-Tzu
“Rather than admit a mistake, nations have gone to war, families have separated, and good people have sacrificed everything dear to them. Admitting that you were wrong is just another way of saying that you are wiser today than yesterday.” ~ Don Ward
“Where you stand depends on where you sit.” ~ Nelson Mandela
“Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight.” ~ Helen Keller
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.” ~ Helen Keller
“If you seek reality you must set yourself free of all backgrounds, of all cultures, of all patterns of thinking and feeling. Even the idea of being man or woman, or even human, should be discarded. The ocean of life contains all, not only humans. So, first of all abandon all self-identification, stop thinking of yourself as such-and-such, so-and-so, this or that. Abandon all self-concern, worry not about your welfare, material or spiritual, abandon every desire, gross or subtle, stop thinking of achievement of any kind. You are complete here and now, you need absolutely nothing. It does not mean that you must be brainless and foolhardy, improvident or indifferent; only the basic anxiety for oneself must go. You need some food, clothing and shelter for you and yours, but this will not create problems as long as greed is not taken for a need. Live in tune with things as they are and not as they are imagined.” ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
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 so much!
