10 shocking quotes guaranteed to make you think

Shocking QuotesThere are many categories of quotes. One category I’ve not explored until now is shocking quotes. That is quotes where the authors refer to something which to them is shocking.

Well, today I offer you 10 shocking quotes guaranteed to make you think.

These are 10 great quotes and I hope you find them all interesting and thought-provoking.

Shocking Quotes:

  1. The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own. ~Aldous Huxley
  2. The writer of originality, unless dead, is always shocking and scandalous; novelty disturbs and repels. ~Simone de Beauvoir
  3. A shocking crime was committed on the unscrupulous initiative of few individuals, with the blessing of more and amid the passive acquiescence of all. ~Tacitus
  4. To me, the most shocking thing about grit is how little we know, how little science knows, about building it. Every day, parents and teachers ask me, ‘How do I build grit in kids? What do I do to teach kids a solid work ethic? How do I keep them motivated for the long run?’ The honest answer is, I don’t know. ~Angela Duckworth
  5. The way we allow children to be advertised to is shocking. Eating is a learned behaviour, and we’ve made these kids sitting ducks for all the bad messages about industrialized food. The fact that we allow that to go on is horrifying. ~Ruth Reichl
  6. The poverty one still sees in America today is more shocking to me than anything I have seen in Ethiopia or Calcutta or Manila, and has made me, as someone living in a society of great wealth and someone who’s never had to worry about the next meal, think seriously about what universal responsibility really means. ~Pico Iyer
  7. It’s very shocking, I think, for people caring for the dying to realise how unsaintly they feel, how much anger is mixed up with their grief. In fact, often I think the anger that they feel is a form of grief; it’s a kind of raging against what’s happening. ~Helen Garner
  8. It’s shocking to me that it’s easier to buy a gun at Wal-Mart than it is to buy my record. ~Marilyn Manson
  9. I’d rather get a good clean laugh with good material, than an easy laugh by swearing or shocking. That’s not clever or comedic, anybody can get a laugh that way, it’s too easy. ~Jim Dale
  10. I think it is shocking that 15- and 16-year-olds leave school unable to add up and with the reading ability of a four-year-old. ~Joan Collins

7 inspirational quotes about success

Inspirational quotes about successIf you’re looking for inspirational quotes about success then first think about what success really means to you. Your definition of success will not necessarily be the same as someone else’s.

Success to you might be nothing more than being happy and content.

That’s admirable of course, and there’s nothing wrong with having that as your goal. However, someone else might be looking for a lot more from life.

For them, success might be an Olympic gold medal or winning the Super Bowl.

So, before you pursue success, you would do well to reflect on what it means to you and why you want it. Knowing your why is half the battle, when it comes to achieving success.

Success is something that is desired by many people but which only the few truly achieve.

To be successful, you have to want it so bad that it hurts. That’s why it’s important to know your why. If you know your ‘why?’ you will be able to bear any ‘how’.

You must be focused on your goals; you must be disciplined; you must be determined; you must be prepared to make sacrifices; you must be prepared to work very, very hard; and you must possess self-belief too.

Remember; nothing worth having ever comes easy.

If you want success then you must be prepared to pay the price in blood, sweat and tears. And that price must always be paid first.

You’ll get nothing before you’ve paid the price. You’ll find that even people who are an ‘overnight success’ have spent years honing their skills before favourable circumstances provided them with an opportunity to shine like a star.

Nothing happens overnight. You’ve got to work at and keep working at it.

And remember this too; you will experience failure from time to time and you will question whether you’re good enough over and over again.

The temptation to quit will be overwhelming at times. You’ll be constantly tempted to settle for an easier life. Don’t!

Success can be achieved if you stick at it and just keep going. Focus on the prize.

In the words of the late, great Muhammad Ali, I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

Success can be yours if you work hard and hang on in there until you achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve. Just go for it!

And remember also; it’s better to try and fail than never having tried at all. At least you won’t spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.

Here are seven interesting and inspirational quotes about success.

Inspirational quotes about success:

  1. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy. ~Norman Vincent Peale
  2. Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not? ~LeBron James
  3. Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. ~Jack Canfield
  4. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. ~Vince Lombardi
  5. At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ~Erin Cummings
  6. Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. ~Paul Ryan
  7. Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success. ~Thomas J. Watson

7 inspirational quotes about trust

Quotes about trustToday I offer you some quotes about trust, dear reader.

Trust underpins any relationship, if it’s to have any longevity. Strong relationships are built on trust. However, trust is something that can take years to establish and only seconds to destroy.

One thoughtless act is all it takes; one moment of weakness. And once destroyed, trust is almost impossible to win back, certainly to anything like the same degree as before, because people can never quite see you in the same way again.

To secure someone’s trust is a privileged position to be in because it means you’re held in the highest regard. To them you’re someone with integrity and you’ve won their respect.

So trust is a very a special thing and, once established, it should never be abused. Not if you value a relationship and/or your reputation, at least.

If you’re in a relationship and for you it’s not all you would like it to be, then it’s perfectly reasonable to be honest with someone, explain the situation and move on. They may be upset by your actions but they’ll appreciate your honesty, in time.

However when you truly value a relationship and you’ve won a person’s trust then think long and hard before you consider doing anything that might destroy that trust. To do otherwise would mean, almost certainly, you’ll regret it.

And remember this; everything you do, however small, honest or dishonest, says something to the world about your character. So how do you want to be judged; trustworthy or otherwise?

In my opinion, it’s better to be known as someone who’s honest and trustworthy, rather than someone people feel they cannot trust.

No amount of personal gain will compensate for having a poor reputation. I don’t think so anyway.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about trust to help you reflect on its significance in relation to your reputation.

Quotes about trust:

  1. Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships. ~Stephen Covey
  2. To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved. ~George MacDonald
  3. Trust is hard to come by. That’s why my circle is small and tight. I’m kind of funny about making new friends. ~Eminem
  4. Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. ~Albert Einstein
  5. A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults. ~Charles Kingsley
  6. I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself. ~Robert E Lee
  7. Most good relationships are built on mutual trust and respect. ~Mona Sutphen

7 inspirational quotes about travel

Quotes about travel

Today I offer you some quotes about travel.

Travel can be an education and certainly, it broadens the mind, wouldn’t you agree dear reader?

I have had the privilege of travelling to more than 70 countries. In fact, I’ve been fortunate enough to live and work in some of them. And I can say this; I’m not the same person I was once quite simply because of those experiences.

I see the world differently now. I know from real experience that people are the same wherever you go.

There may be superficial cultural differences of course but deep down people are all just people. We eat; we sleep; we laugh; we cry; we’re happy; we’re sad; we all have dreams; we all have fears; we love our families, even when they drive us mad, and we want the best for our children. And of course we all share feelings of vulnerability at times too.

There are good people in this world and there are not so good people too but most people are honest and decent and they’re just trying to get through life as best they can. Treat them with respect and they’ll reciprocate, or at least that has been my experience.

So travel as often as you can but remember this; there’s a difference between travel and tourism.

Tourism is simply taking in the sights and a little sunshine perhaps.

Travel is a much more enlightening experience. It goes beyond the superficial and it’s about trying to understand people and the reality of life as it is for them.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about travel to get you thinking.

Quotes About Travel:

  1. To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries. ~Aldous Huxley
  2. One travels more usefully when alone, because he [or she] reflects more. ~Thomas Jefferson
  3. A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving. ~Lao Tzu
  4. Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. ~Mary Ritter Beard
  5. People who don’t travel cannot have a global view. All they see is what’s in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live. ~Martin Yan
  6. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. ~Maya Angelou
  7. The traveller sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see. ~Gilbert K. Chesterton

7 inspirational quotes about money

Quotes about moneyPeople may tell you that money’s not important but, after oxygen, few things are more important to sustaining life in the modern age. So it’s essential that we take good care of our money and use it wisely.

That’s not to say we should be mean or stingy. Quite the contrary; being generous when it’s appropriate is very important.

However, we should not waste money or fritter it away on things we don’t need and/or will never use.

Enjoy your money when you have it but always put a little away for a rainy day because one day it will rain, of that you can be absolutely sure, dear reader.

Build capital over time and that capital can then generate an income stream for you.

Money can make your life easier of course but on its own it will not make you happy. Never make the mistake of assuming that it will.

Happiness comes from within and if you’re not happy without money then having some money is unlikely to improve that situation.

Quotes about moneyNever chase money for its own sake. The personal cost of being overly acquisitive is likely to be very high indeed.

Make sure you have some balance in your life; then do what you love; do it well and the money will follow.

And never forget this; money is important but the people in your life are far more important. You can have all the money in the world but without people in your life, you have nothing.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about money to help you reflect on what it really means.

Inspirational quotes about money:

  1. Anybody who thinks money will make you happy hasn’t got money. ~David Geffen
  2. When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is. ~Oscar Wilde
  3. A wise man should have money in his head but not in his heart. ~Jonathan Swift
  4. Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish but it will not replace you as the driver. ~Ayn Rand
  5. Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. ~Steve Jobs
  6. There are people who have money and people who are rich. ~Coco Chanel
  7. Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail. ~Kinky Friedman

7 quotes about war and why it’s mad

Does a war ever solve anything? That’s a debatable point, to say the least.

There have been so many wars in my lifetime and yet what have they solved, really? It seems to me that war never actually resolves anything at all.

War causes bitterness and hatred between people and these feelings can fester for generations.

For me, war is best summed up by Bertrand Russell’s observation that, “War doesn’t decide who’s right, only who’s left.

As far as I can see, war creates more problems than it solves. Often it creates a vacuum which is then filled by people with truly evil intent.

Ultimately differences between people require compromise and a political solution. We have to learn to live together and meet others halfway.

Yes, there will be times when we have to be resolute and tough but fighting should be avoided whenever possible and it should always be possible.

If I have learned one thing it is this; if politicians had to go to war and do the fighting, and take their own sons and daughters with them, there would be no wars.

The problem we have today is that none of our politicians now have any first-hand experience of the reality of war. None have experienced the horrors of battle. If they had, they would take a very different approach, of that I am sure.

However let me say this; whether war can be justified or otherwise, we must always respect the warriors.

For the warriors do what they do in good faith and at great personal risk to themselves. They act without question and with the intent of protecting us. They do the bidding of politicians. So if anyone is to blame, it’s always the politicians. Let us never forget.

Here are seven quotes about war to underline today’s message.

Quotes  about war:

  1. Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind. ~John F. Kennedy
  2. The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his. ~George S. Patton
  3. I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
  4. Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed. ~Mao Zedong
  5. I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell. ~William Tecumseh Sherman
  6. What a cruel thing war is; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors. ~Robert E. Lee
  7. You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake. ~Jeannette Rankin

5 quotes about communication that will make you think

Quotes about communicationIn the field of human relations, effective communication is very important. Yet communication or lack of it is so often the cause of so many of our problems. After all, it’s not what we say, it’s what we mean. In this post, there are 5 quotes about communication to help you consider this point.

We may think we’ve said something clearly but did the other person understand the meaning of our words in the way they were intended? Did we use the right words to convey our underlying message?

All too often we fail to get our message across clearly. Then we can find ourselves arguing with someone due to a miscommunication when in fact both parties have no underlying disagreement at all.

If you’re the communicator then it is your responsibility to ensure that the receiver of your communication understands its meaning clearly. It is not the receiver’s job to work out what you really meant. And of course it’s not only what you say, it’s the way that you say it.

I can use exactly the same words with a different tone and convey a totally different meaning. For instance, if you walk into a room and I say your name warmly and with a smile then it suggests I’m pleased to see you and you will respond accordingly.

Alternatively, if I scream your name as you enter that same room then you will conclude that I am not happy with you at all and you will become very defensive.

So think carefully before you speak. If you’re in any role where you are a leader of people then good communication skills are vital if you are to execute your duties successfully.

So learn the art of good communication and remember that your tone is as important as your words.

Treat people with respect and they will respond well. Put them at ease when speaking with them and make sure they clearly understand your message as it was intended. Good communication is essential for effective leadership.

Here are those five quotes about communication:-

Quotes about communication:

  1. To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others. ~Tony Robbins
  2. Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people. ~Jim Rohn
  3. Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. ~Buddha
  4. Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble. ~Yehuda Berg
  5. The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said. ~Peter Drucker

7 inspirational quotes about life and success

If you want to be successful, observe successful people and do what they do. If it worked for them then it will probably work for you.

In life, if you’re determined and you’re prepared to work hard you can achieve almost anything. However success means different things to different people. What does it mean for you?

Perhaps you’d be happy with a steady job and a decent wage?

Alternatively success to you might be becoming a Hollywood movie star?

Well it doesn’t really matter how you define success. Just decide what it is you want and then go for it.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about life and success to help you reflect on what it all means to you.

Quotes about life and success:

  1. I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature. ~John D. Rockefeller
  2. Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine. ~Chris Hadfield
  3. Like success, failure is many things to many people. With Positive Mental Attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order and prepare to try again. ~W. Clement Stone
  4. We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean… and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect. ~Michelle Obama
  5. Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality. ~Travis Bradberry
  6. At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ~Erin Cummings
  7. Before success comes in any man’s life, he’s sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That’s exactly what the majority of men do. ~Napoleon Hill

7 quotes about technology and why we must control it

Technology is a wonderful thing, wouldn’t you agree? It can make our lives easier in so many ways, doesn’t it? Well, yes. However, it’s worth reflecting on some thoughtful quotes about technology.

I must say, I love gadgets and I’m a big fan of technology generally.

However, if we’re not careful, technology intended to make our lives more efficient can have the opposite effect.

Dear reader, how often are you about to do something but you then think, “Oh, before I do that I’ll just check Facebook?

Half an hour later and you’ve forgotten what it was you were about to do in the first place. Now be honest, can you relate to that experience?

Harness technology by all means and use all the benefits it offers.

However, we shouldn’t let it control our lives. We shouldn’t allow it to be a substitute for real-life either.

And of course, the use of technology can never replace intelligent thought.

Technology can help us achieve our aims but it can also prevent us from achieving our aims too, if we’re not careful. So my underlying message to you today dear reader is, enjoy technology in all its forms but stay in control.

Here are seven quotes about technology and why we must control it.

Quotes about technology:

  1. The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before and so in a sense, it is all about potential. ~Steve Ballmer
  2. Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, allowing us to do things more quickly and efficiently but too often it seems to make things harder, leaving us with fifty-button remote controls, digital cameras with hundreds of mysterious features and book-length manuals, and cars with dashboard systems worthy of the space shuttle. ~James Surowiecki
  3. Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important. ~Bill Gates
  4. The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency. ~Bill Gates
  5. The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men [and women] do. ~BF Skinner
  6. Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone. ~Steven Spielberg
  7. Technology is so much fun but we can drown in our technology. The fog of information can drive out knowledge. ~Daniel J Boorstin

15 Quotes by Helen Keller

Helen Adams Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was an inspiration to us all. So, surely it’s worth considering some quotes by Helen Keller?

Helen Keller was in fact, the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.

With the help of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, Helen Keller broke through the isolation imposed on her by a near-complete lack of language, allowing her to blossom as she learned to communicate.

Keller proved to the world that deaf people could learn to communicate and that they could survive in the hearing world.

Helen Keller is a prime example of someone who despite considerable disadvantages was able to realise her full potential, through determination, hard work and a refusal to be defined by her disadvantages.

She’s a role model not only for deaf people but for everyone who struggles to deal with the disadvantages life has bestowed upon them.

So, today let us reflect on 15 excellent quotes by Helen Keller which I hope will inspire you, dear reader.

Whenever you feel that life is being unfair to you I recommend that you think of Helen Keller and people like her and remember that anything is possible if you just keep focused on your objectives.

  1. What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me. ~Helen Keller

  4. The highest result of education is tolerance. ~Helen Keller
  5. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched; they must be felt with the heart. ~Helen Keller

  10. Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others. ~Helen Keller
  11. Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. ~Helen Keller

  13. Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. ~Helen Keller
  14. We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world. ~Helen Keller
  15. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ~Helen Keller
