Bits of Wisdom

I have been fortunate enough to have people around me, who always say those typical philosophical and deep things. Some of them have stuck with me.

1. “If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, it never was and it’s not meant to be.”

2. “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called ‘present’.”

3. “Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” – G.K. Chesterton

4. “It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from, or how much money you’ve got in your pocket. You have your own destiny and your own life ahead of you.” – Lady Gaga

5. “What we perceive as a failure may simply be our inner being’s way of telling us that we are ready to move to a new level of growth.” – Anne Wilson Schaef

6. “There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing; light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light.” – Jodi Picoult

7. “You have to accept things in order to be happy. One of the biggest things you have to accept is that if you’re not happy, it doesn’t have to be that way… but you, and only you, have the power to change your life for the better.” – Doe Zantamata

8. “Think of life as a gigantic ice cream parlor with infinite flavors to taste. Tell yourself the goal of life is to taste as many flavors of experiences as you can. Admittedly, you won’t like every flavor. But hey, you don’t need to go near that flavor ever again. Instead, indulge in flavors you know you’re passionate about! And don’t be afraid to taste something that might look funny — you never know!” – Karen Salmansohn

9. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe.

10. “Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.” – Josh Billings

11. “Always remember, I’m not everything you asked for. But I’m something you’d die for.” – Sakshi Rohida

12. “When life hands you lemons, sell ’em. Lemons fetch a good price at the market these days. No one ought to complain about free lemons. Make something good out of every bad situation.” – Doe Zantamata

13. “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” – Paul Brandt

14. “Defeat doesn’t finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he’s defeated. He’s finished when he quits.” – Richard M. Nixon

15. “Winners take imperfect action while losers are still perfecting the plan.” – Tony Robbins

16. “Don’t let the worst people get the best of you. Save it for the best people instead.” – Doe Zantamata

17. “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison

18. “There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” – Johnny Depp

19. “If you had started doing anything two weeks ago, by today you would have been two weeks better at it.” – John Mayer

20. “An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.” – Anatole France
