Plenty of people quote the famous. That's reasonable, considering they're famous. (Unless you quote the Kardashians, Paris Hilton, etc.... then you really need to reevaluate your life.)

I really want to hear quotes that are personal... from people you've actually had experience with. This does not mean that they are not common, or at least similar to others... It only means that they have personal value to you, because you know the person, and saw it in practice.

Let me start:

My grandfather always said: Listen to everyone's advice, but make your own decision.

The best leader I ever had said: Inspect what you expect.



Feel free to share anything you like. I'm looking for serious quotes...but there is absolutely nothing wrong with a little humor, if that is what you have to offer.

I can't think of anything quotable that was said to me that actually had any sort of impact on me. I learned more from seeing and experiencing than being told something.

That being said, my father always liked to say "welcome to the real world". I never agreed with it though.

"The Universe is in us as much as we are in It." - Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Oh non famous

I used to volunteer at a Community Center and when asked why she married the man that she did the supervisor answered "There's always going to be someone better. What really matters is who you're willing to put up with."

This inspired you to do what?

Not judging, I'm just wondering how this helped you to be a better person.

"Simply by living, we are resisting and fighting the people who hate us."

Or something along those lines... A friend from another forum I get on said it. Even when I am in one of my worse moods and see no reason to bother living, that generally encourages me to tough it out. I'm not alone, and other people face what I face... Leaving them would only stand to make things harder for them, I think...

A good friend of mine: "Fear not for what you are, but for what you are going to be."
It's a little ambiguous but I like it
