I absolutely love quotes, I look at them on Pinterest as often as I can to be honest. There’s quite a few quotes that I try to “live by”, each for different reasons. Below are a few of those quotes and the reasons why I try and live by them!
We are what we pretend to be so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
– Kurt Vonnegut
As the years go by we are using the internet more and more frequently I believe this quote becomes more and more relevant. On the internet you can be whoever/whatever you want to be, but be careful because who you pretend to be is who you become.
You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
I strongly agree with this quote. If you keep looking back at the past you’re never going to see the good that can come from the future.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
– George Eliot
This quote is pretty self explanatory. If you want to do something in your life remember that it’s never too late to do so. There’s always time for you to become what you’ve always wanted.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
– Milton Berie
If you want something, go and get it. Chase it. Don’t wait for it to come to you, you might be waiting your whole life for something you could have gone and got in seconds.
Life is not measured by the amount of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.
– Micalea Smeltzer
To me this is a more in depth version of “life’s about the journey not the destination”.
Is there a quote you try to live by?
