21 thought-provoking quotes about moving on

Every ending is a new beginning. When one chapter ends, we turn the page and there’s a whole new chapter to explore.

Life is just a series of chapters and not everyone or everything has a place in every chapter. Your story will have many twists and turns before it reaches its conclusion.

It’s easy to feel attached emotionally to the past but we can’t live life through the rear view mirror. We must be positive and embrace the future.

It may move us out of our comfort zone but it’s in that space we’ll grow.

A sentimental longing for people, places and things is quite natural. However life is for living. And if we’re to live life to the full we must look ahead and keep moving forward.

So here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about moving on to inspire you.

Having the courage to draw a line under an event or a relationship, or any other life-changing experiences, is essential if we are to become all we could be.

When things end, life doesn’t end. Life goes on and what’s gone is in the past. So leave it there and look forward to the future.

And you can always keep in mind some of these quotes about moving on.

15 Quotes to inspire you to Think Bigger

Quotes to inspire you to think biggerIf you’re thinking anyway then you might as well think big, or so the saying goes.

Far too many people underestimate their ability; what they can do; and what they can achieve.

If you want to make your mark on this world then you’ll need to think big. You’ll need to make a difference. You’ll need to stand out head and shoulders above the crowd.

That can be a lonely place to be, of course. However the rewards can be extraordinary.

Rewards can be in terms of recognition but they can also be financial too. And let’s not forget that such rewards have the potential to include your place in history.

Does that sound a little too dramatic?

Well other people leave their mark on history, so why not you?

Too many people fear trying in case they fail. However there is no such thing as failure, just opportunities to learn, to hone your skills and then have another go with a better understanding of what will and won’t work.

You must believe in yourself dear reader. Self-belief is an essential ingredient for success. Others don’t need to believe in you but you must feel you have whatever it takes to do it, whatever it is.

You’re as good as anyone and, if you dig deep, you’ve got what it takes.

Here are 15 quotes to inspire you to Think Bigger.

21 thought-provoking quotes about fathers

In life it’s all too easy to prioritise things like work, career and socialising over those things that truly matter most.

I’m not suggesting that work’s not important, it is. After all by earning a living we can put bread on the table and a roof over our heads and those of our loved ones.

Socialising is also important because through it we can relax and alleviate stress.

However the role of parent is more important than any of these because children are the future. And children need a father as well as a mother.

As a father you’re not just a sperm donor. You should be a provider of course, to ensure that your children get the best possible start in life.

You should offer support to their mother too, as that too will help your children.

However more than any of that, to your sons you’re a role model and to your daughters you are an example of how men treat women.

You should also be an authority figure, as it’s important that children are brought up within a moral framework and they should know where the boundaries are and what the penalties will be should there be any transgression.

Well-adjusted, well-behaved and well-educated young people are the future of any civilisation and fathers have an important role to play in making that happen.

So today I offer you 21 thought-provoking quotes about fathers to highlight the importance of why I think men have really been placed upon this earth.

Quotes about fathers:

  1. My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. ~Jim Valvano
  2. The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. ~Theodore Hesburgh
  3. A father is a man who expects his son to be as good a man as he meant to be. ~Frank A. Clark
  4. My father was my teacher. But most importantly he was a great dad. ~Beau Bridges
  5. To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter. ~Euripides
  6. I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection. ~Sigmund Freud
  7. The most important influence in my childhood was my father. ~DeForest Kelley
  8. A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and contentment in life than simply being a good husband and father. ~Frank Abagnale
  9. Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that’s why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right. ~Wade Boggs
  10. Becoming a father increases your capacity for love and your level of patience. It opens up another door in a person – a door which you may not even have known was there. That’s what I feel with my son. There’s suddenly another level of love that expands. My son is my greatest joy, out of everything in my life. ~Kyle MacLachlan
  11. I hope I can be as good of a father to my son as my dad was to me. ~Calvin Johnson
  12. One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters. ~George Herbert
  13. My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass. He showed us how to be resilient, how to deal with challenges, and how to strive for excellence in all that we do. He taught us that there’s nothing that we cannot accomplish if we marry vision and passion with an enduring work ethic. ~Ivanka Trump
  14. I am blessed to be a proud father of a daughter. ~Adnan Sami
  15. It is a wise father that knows his own child. ~William Shakespeare
  16. Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist, because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table. That’s how she found out what happened on the day my father died. She went looking for him because that morning, there was no rose. ~Mitt Romney
  17. Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person. ~Naveen Jain
  18. Every son’s first superhero is his father, and it was the same for me. For me, he was Superman and Batman combined. ~Tiger Shroff
  19. It was my father who taught me to value myself. He told me that I was uncommonly beautiful and that I was the most precious thing in his life. ~Dawn French
  20. I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much. ~Hedy Lamarr
  21. In my career, there’s many things I’ve won and many things I’ve achieved, but for me, my greatest achievement is my children and my family. It’s about being a good father, a good husband, just being connected to family as much as possible. ~David Beckham

21 thought-provoking quotes about mothers

Being a mother is probably the most challenging and daunting job on earth, particularly if you have to do it alone.

However nothing’s more important than motherhood because without mothers there would not be a next generation or indeed future generations. Without mothers the human race would disappear.

A mother’s love nurtures the people of tomorrow. And for that we all owe mothers the greatest debt of gratitude.

There could not be a more important job than being a mother, surely? That’s why mothers have such a special place in our hearts. Working careers are all very well but motherhood matters more, or at least it should do.

Fathers matter too of course, but mothers are truly very special.

So today I offer you 21 thought-provoking quotes about mothers to underline my point.

Ladies, if you’re a mother then remember this; the world owes you its gratitude. For without your love and hard work bringing up well-adjusted young people, the human race would cease to exist.
