21 thought-provoking quotes about mothers

quotes about mothersBeing 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 in my opinion because without mothers there would not be a next generation or indeed any future generations.

Without mothers, the human race would disappear.

Yes, fathers matter too of course. However, it’s a mother’s love that truly nurtures the generation of tomorrow.

So for that, we all owe mothers the greatest debt of gratitude.

There couldn’t be a more important job than being a mother, surely?

That’s why our mothers have such a special place in our hearts. Working careers are all very well and they’re important of course, but motherhood matters more, or at least it should do.

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. Without your love and hard work bringing up well-adjusted young people, the human race would cease to exist.

That’s why I believe that no job is more important than the role of a mother. Your children are your legacy and your gift to the future.

21 thought-provoking quotes about fathers

QUOTES ABOUT FATHERSIn life, it’s all too easy to prioritise things like work, career and socialising over those things that really matter most.

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

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

However, the role of a 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 and protector, 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 is 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 are 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

23 quotes to inspire you to think bigger

23 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 23 quotes to inspire you to think bigger.

  6. That’s precisely the question everyone should be asking, why the hell not? Why not you? Why not now? ~Timothy Ferriss
  7. The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavour. ~Vince Lombardi
  8. It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are. ~E. Cummings

  12. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. ~David Joseph Schwartz

33 Quotes by Robin Williams: No 12 really made me smile

QUOTES BY ROBIN WILLIAMSHe was such an exceptional talent that I thought it would be interesting to take a look back at some quotes by Robin Williams.

The late Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian, as I’m sure you’ll know, dear reader.

He was probably best known for his improvisational skills and the wide variety of characters he created on the spur of the moment and portrayed on film, in dramas and comedies alike.

For me, Robin Williams is probably one of the best comic talents of all time and his passing was the most tremendous loss to the entertainment industry.

So here are 33 great quotes by Robin Williams and number 12 definitely made me smile.

Enjoy them all and then please feel free to pass them on.

Quotes by Robin Williams (1-15):

  1. Reality: What a concept!
  2. Comedy is acting out optimism.
  3. I love kids, but they’re a tough audience.
  4. Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’
  5. I’m sorry if you were right, I’d agree with you.
  6. Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?
  7. Sometimes you have to make a movie to make money.
  8. What’s right is what’s left if you do everything else wrong.

  10. You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
  11. I was only a leading man for a minute; now I’m a character actor.
  12. Never pick a fight with an ugly person. They’ve got nothing to lose.
  13. No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
  14. People say satire is dead. It’s not dead; it’s alive and living in the White House.
  15. The Second Amendment says we have the right to bear arms, not to bear artillery.

Quotes by Robin Williams (16-25):

  1. We had gay burglars the other night. They broke in and rearranged the furniture.
  2. Being in the same room with people and creating something together is a good thing.
  3. You have this idea that you’d better keep working otherwise people will forget. And that was dangerous.
  4. I do believe in love; it’s wonderful, especially love the third time around, it’s even more precious; it’s kind of amazing.
  5. Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes. Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah.
  6. I’ve never been asked to appear on ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!‘ so I guess I mustn’t be on the professional skids just yet.
  7. I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.
  8. It’s hard when you read an article saying bad things about you. It is as if someone is sticking a knife in your heart. But I am the harshest critic of my work.
  9. Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money,’ but they changed it to ‘alimony.’ It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet.
  10. I only ever play Vegas one night at a time. It’s a hideous, gaudy place; it may not be the end of the world per se, but you can certainly see it from there.

Quotes by Robin Williams (26-30):

  1. Quotes-by-Robin-WilliamsA woman would never make a nuclear bomb. They would never make a weapon that kills – no, no. They’d make a weapon that makes you feel bad for a while.
  2. I write on big yellow legal pads – ideas in outline form when I’m doing stand-up and stuff. It’s vivid that way. I can’t type it into an iPad – I think that would put a filter into the process.
  3. I left school and couldn’t find acting work, so I started going to clubs where you could do stand-up. I’ve always improvised, and stand-up was this great release. All of a sudden, it was just me and the audience.
  4. Sometimes over things that I did – movies that didn’t turn out very well – you go, ‘Why did you do that?’ But in the end, I can’t regret them because I met amazing people. There was always something that was worth it.
  5. The essential truth is that sometimes you’re worried that they’ll find out it’s a fluke, that you don’t really have it. You’ve lost the muse or – the worst dread – you never had it at all. I went through all that madness early on.

Quotes by Robin Williams (31-33)

  1. I started doing comedy because that was the only stage that I could find. It was the pure idea of being on stage. That was the only thing that interested me, along with learning the craft and working, and just being in productions with people.
  2. The bad thing about being a famous comedian is that every now and then someone approaches me to tell an old joke. Don’t tell me jokes – I have that. People also say the weirdest things, sometimes sarcastic things, and even evil things. They like to provoke to get a reaction.
  3. I basically started performing for my mother, going, ‘Love me!’ What drives you to perform is the need for that primal connection. When I was little, my mother was funny with me, and I started to be charming and funny for her, and I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.

21 quotes about moving on that will inspire you

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