25 powerful quotes to help you reflect on life and its meaning

powerful quotes to help you reflect on life and its meaningLife is for living and we live it just once. If we put off until someday those things on our bucket list then we’ll never experience them at all because someday never comes. Sadly, that’s a fact.

In your old age, your memories will not revolve around the size of your house or the model of the car you had. Your memories will be of the people you knew and the experiences you had and how they all made you feel.

Family and friends matter more than material possessions and no experience is worth foregoing for the sake of an extra couple of years in a care home at the end of our lives.

Always remember that nothing matters more to you than your loved ones and friends. Jobs and careers won’t look after you when you’re ill, infirm or old. So, get your priorities right.

Work hard of course and pursue your dreams too. However, don’t trade money and material possessions for a life well-lived. That would be a poor trade and one you’ll regret.

Here are 25 powerful quotes to help you reflect on life and its meaning.
