Inspirational quotes are everywhere to be found on the Internet and one can claim we are sort of over saturated with them, as all are sharing their words of wisdom, while few tell us how to really act in a crisis situation or how practically find inspiration and motivation when everything seems to crumble and fall around us. Still, there are and were great humans out there who managed to move entire communities of people with their words, who changed history and who left us not only with famous quotes, but with real examples to follow. So let’s see together ten of some inspirational pearls of wisdom, and who knows, some of them might come in handy at some point in our lives.

1. Steve Jobs


“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

2. H. Jackson Brown Jr.


“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

3. Helen Keller


“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”

4. Albert Einstein


“I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me. Its because of them I’m doing it myself.”

5. Bill Cosby


“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”

6. Italo Calvino


“The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.”

7. Lao Tzu


“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”

8. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”

9. Henry Miller


“Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.”

10. Orson Scott Card


“If you try and lose then it isn’t your fault. But if you don’t try and we lose, then it’s all your fault.”
