21 quotes about what matters most in life

In modern life, it’s easy to forget the things that matter most to us. It’s easy to take our eyes off the ball completely.

These days, there’s a tendency for people to be more obsessed with themselves. Life is all about selfies and social media, or so it seems. However, none of these things matter very much, do they?

It’s true, they may offer a mild diversion from our chores, but they’re also a distraction and a time-waster, surely?

And if people are not obsessed with social media then they’re focused on their careers and/or money in the belief that these things are the most important things in life.

Yes, the importance of careers and money should not be underestimated, of course, but the people in our lives are far more important. Without our loved ones and friends, we’d have nothing at all, surely?

So really, only people matter.

Well, that’s what I think, but what do you think, dear reader? Would you agree with me?

While you’re reflecting on those questions, here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about what matters most in life.

I offer them as some ‘food for thought’.
