7 inspirational quotes about health


Our health is something of which we can all be neglectful at times and yet it is so important. Think about that next time you’re putting a stressful situation at work first. You only get one you and once damaged it is difficult, if not impossible, to repair.

If your aim is to enjoy your life and be happy then it all starts with good health. So you have to take good care of yourself.

No amount of money will compensate for being in a poor state of health. So eat a well-balanced diet, exercise regularly and get a good night’s sleep.

Obviously you can’t wrap yourself in cotton wool and there is always a balance to be struck.

Challenge yourself occasionally and make sure you have some fun along the way. Bad food and your tipple of choice can be enjoyed occasionally and burning the candle at both ends won’t do too much harm as long as you don’t make a habit of it.

Life would be very dull without the odd guilty pleasure but never lose sight of the need to maintain good health.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about health to help you reflect on this all too important subject.

Quotes About Health:

  1. It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. ~Mahatma Gandhi
  2. Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. ~Benjamin Franklin
  3. Health is not valued till sickness comes. ~Thomas Fuller
  4. There’s nothing more important than our good health. That’s our principal capital asset. ~Arlen Specter
  5. I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you. ~Joyce Meyer
  6. Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health. ~Dalai Lama
  7. I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself. ~Johnny Carson

7 inspirational quotes about moving on

How often do we form an emotional attachment to the bad things that happen to us when what we should be doing is drawing a line under it and moving on?

Bad things happen to us all and of course they can be a bitter pill to swallow. However you can’t change what’s happened; only how you choose to look at what’s happened.

You can allow these things to define you; to constrain you; and to prevent you from enjoying the happiness you deserve.

Alternatively you can say, “Pity me not. Stuff may happen but I’m a tough nut to crack. I will not let anything prevent me from enjoying my life as best I can. I value my self-esteem and my personal happiness more than I will allow unfortunate circumstances to throw me off course.”

The past serves only for the lessons it teaches us; it has no other bearing on the future. However bad the past may have been, that doesn’t mean the future can’t be better.

So never be constrained by anything that has happened to you. Just take it on the chin and move on.

Learn the lessons of course, as they will make you wiser and stronger. Otherwise focus on the future, don’t worry and above all be happy.

Nothing matters much and few things really matter at all.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about moving on to reinforce today’s underlying message.

Quotes About Moving On:

  1. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself. ~Walter Anderson
  2. You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. ~Johnny Cash
  3. To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on. ~Dave Pelzer
  4. Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future. ~Lewis B Smedes
  5. Every day is a new day and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on. ~Carrie Underwood
  6. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. ~Seneca
  7. As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison. ~Nelson Mandela

7 inspirational quotes about experience

Education is a fine thing but nothing beats experience. There is nothing anyone can tell you that will be more valuable to you than doing it for yourself, getting your fingers burned and learning from the experience.

You’ll forget many things you were taught in a classroom but you won’t forget your mistakes and the experience you got from them.

So don’t worry about making mistakes for mistakes are pure gold, providing you don’t repeat them too often. From mistakes you get experience and experience is a valuable commodity.

As a hiring manager I value people with experience. The more experience you have the less likely you are to make mistakes whilst you’re on my payroll. So it’s good business to hire for experience I think.

However let me add, education is important too dear reader. Learning is an investment in you and it pays great dividends. The higher your level of education, the more you can earn potentially. Learning is a lifelong process, so keep your knowledge current.

And if you have both experience and knowledge then you can go as far as your ambition will take you.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about experience to reinforce today’s messasge.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. The only source of knowledge is experience. ~Albert Einstein
  2. Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes. ~Oscar Wilde
  3. Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience. ~Paulo Coelho
  4. People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
  5. Experience is the teacher of all things. ~Julius Caesar
  6. If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience. ~Mao Zedong
  7. Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Helen Keller

15 Quotes by Muhammad Ali

Many people imagine they’re famous but few experience genuine fame and the universal recognition that it brings with it.

One such person is the legendary, three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Born Cassius Clay he rose above his humble beginnings to become one of the most recognisable and respected faces on the planet. He was also an inspiration to us all.

As well as being a respected sportsman he was also a respected thinker. Consequently the many memorable and thought-provoking quotes he left us continue to offer an insight into the personal philosophy that drove Muhammad Ali to become such a great champion.

I believe the 15 quotes by Muhammad Ali included here today prove my point.

Muhammad Ali was driven to become a champion and if his philosophy worked for him, then it can work for you too.

So here are 15 of the very best quotes by Muhammad Ali:-

  1. I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was. ~Muhammad Ali

  3. He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. ~Muhammad Ali
  4. Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~Muhammad Ali
  5. Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. ~Muhammad Ali
  6. Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. ~Muhammad Ali
  7. It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. ~Muhammad Ali
  8. I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~Muhammad Ali

  10. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. ~Muhammad Ali
  11. Don’t count the days; make the days count. ~Muhammad Ali
  12. It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am. ~Muhammad Ali
  13. If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize. ~Muhammad Ali

7 inspirational quotes about religion

Faith can be a source of great comfort for people but it can also be a source of tension between people too. And yet look at the underlying principles of all the major world religions and it seems to me that essentially they are all the same.

Think about it. The major world religions provide people with a moral framework and a philosophy by which they can live decent and productive lives. In that sense I think religion is an essential part of civilization, surely? Without a moral framework to which people adhere, all there would be is barbarism.

However each religion underpins the culture of its adherents. By definition culture is simply the way things are done around here. That implies difference between groups of people and of course human beings often struggle to accept difference.

One of the most basic human needs is the need to feel secure. Unfortunately difference tends to makes people feel insecure, which creates a tension. Coupled with the emotional bond people feel towards their own religion this can create significant problems between groups of people, as we have seen all too often throughout the ages.

Yet we are all much more alike than we might imagine. If only we could focus more on those things we all have in common, perhaps the world would be a much better place. Well I think it would anyway.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about religion for you to consider today.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. ~Khalil Gibran
  2. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich. ~Napoleon Bonaparte
  3. I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. ~Galileo Galilei
  4. It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. ~Helen Keller
  5. Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays. ~Soren Kierkegaard
  6. My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. ~Dalai Lama
  7. Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. ~Buddha

7 inspirational quotes about fame

Does the idea of being famous appeal to you dear reader? If it does then you’re not alone. However before you chase fame it would be worth reflecting on today’s inspirational quotes about fame.

A lot of people crave fame and many strive constantly to be famous, giving little thought to the price they will pay should they achieve any significant degree of fame.

Real fame implies universal recognition; being recognised wherever you go, anywhere in the world. Muhammad Ali, Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Nelson Mandela were all examples of people who were truly famous and would be recognised anywhere.

To people with no experience of real fame, it might seem like a nice idea to think that wherever you go everyone will know you. However the novelty will wear off soon enough, once you realise the impact it has on your privacy and your ability to go about your daily life in ways that others take for granted.

Allow me to offer an example. A few years ago I had the privilege of having Jimmy Page sit opposite me in a crowded London coffee shop. He was minding his own business trying to do the things we all do; relax with his beverage of choice and so on. However being in the presence of a Rock music legend and icon is not something that was going to happen to me every day, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to invade his privacy with a few inane questions.

To his credit, his response was good-natured and very polite. However it must have been irritating for him nevertheless. Privately he was probably thinking, “Oh please, give me a break! I’m off duty and I just came in here for a quiet cup of coffee like everyone else.” For him, and many like him, that’s the price he continues to pay for his fame.

So if you’re chasing fame be prepared for the personal cost that will inevitably come with it. Fame might lead to riches for you but never forget that chains of gold are still chains.

You can do whatever you want but there is always a price to be paid.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about fame to reinforce today’s underlying message.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous, ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job. ~Bill Murray
  2. The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You’re in a conversation and everybody’s agreeing with what you’re saying – even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don’t want to hear. ~Al Pacino
  3. The strangest part about being famous is you don’t get to give first impressions anymore. Everyone already has an impression of you before you meet them. ~Kristen Stewart
  4. A celebrity is a person who works hard all of their life to become well known, and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized. ~Fred Allen
  5. We all want to be famous people and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free. Jiddu Krishnamurti
  6. Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate. ~Emily Dickinson
  7. I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing. ~Angelina Jolie

7 inspirational quotes about parenting

Can there be any activity in life more important than parenting? Yet it is often undervalued in the modern age, or so it seems. Children are the future, so surely they should be our priority?

It seems to me that far too many people regard parenting almost as an inconvenience, to be fitted in around careers, lifestyle and a burning desire for personal fulfilment.

It is increasingly common now to see very young children accompanying adults on crowded commuter trains far too early in the morning, as parents rush to deposit them at a nursery or with a child-minder before the working day begins.

These little people will be the next generation. They are the people who will carry the baton forward to build a better tomorrow. So how they’re brought up really does matter in my opinion, particularly in those all-important pre-school years, which are critical to their development.

Is it really such a good idea to leave them with someone who couldn’t possibly have their best interests at heart in the way that parents should? You can decide for yourself dear reader but I must say I doubt it.

It is my opinion that children, once we have them, should be our priority. Their best interests should always take precedence over everything else, surely? Easier said than done I know and inevitably there has to be some balance and compromise.

However there is no more important job than being a parent and there is no greater satisfaction than seeing that little bundle of joy turn into a decent, civilised and well-adjusted adult.

I have had many fine experiences in my life but being a parent has been the best of them all. It hasn’t been easy of course and certainly I’ve made mistakes along the way. However the rewards have been well worth any sacrifices. And let us not forget, our children are the real legacy we give to the world.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about parenting to help you reflect on its importance.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. When you hold your baby in your arms the first time and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity. ~Rose Kennedy
  2. To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favour of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior himself. ~James E. Faust
  3. Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don’t realize what messages they are sending. ~Virginia Satir
  4. There are times as a parent when you realize that your job is not to be the parent you always imagined you’d be, the parent you always wished you had. Your job is to be the parent your child needs, given the particulars of his or her own life and nature. ~Ayelet Waldman
  5. At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. ~Jane D. Hull
  6. Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. ~Robert Fulghum
  7. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. ~Frederick Douglass
