In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it is worth it.

I’m going to identify with Whitman the most in that set of quotes. Life’s too short to worry about pleasing everyone in equal measure.

A lot of great quotes, thanks for these reminders.

Right now, I’d say the Einstein quote in your post resonates with me the most. I’ve been trying to learn and do some new things, and have been making mistakes along the way. I need to remind myself that making mistakes is normal and part of the process. I can’t let my mistakes convince me to give up because it’s only from making those mistakes that I can learn and improve.

Thank you for this wonderful list. I think my favorite quote would be the Anais Nin one. I shared it on Pinterest : D. It is so true that life shrinks or expands in relation to our courage. If we don’t have the courage to live our lives then the world collapses.

Btw I am now writing under my actual name rather than my pen name of Sebastian Aiden Daniels : D.

Welcome again, then, Michael! Yay! for being yourself! Thank you for your constant support and spreading the love!

That quote is one of my favorites, too, because it simply endorses that it is all in our hands!

Love all the quotes, Vidya. They are so inspiring about life. I love this one a lot, What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
This one is also fab:
Put blinders on to those things that conspire to hold you back, especially the ones in your own head.

Plus wrong choices sometimes bring us to the right place.
