How Words of Wisdom Can Help

TalkShop words of wisdomWords of wisdom can come from the Bible, from generations, historical and literary figures, even from loved ones. Their lessons gleaned from rich experiences still resonate life’s ups and downs. Words of wisdom are food for thought that can guide, motivate, inspire, and strengthen the race we call life. TalkShop shares some favorite quotes:

1. Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do. – Goethe

2. A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction. – Rita Mae Brown

3. There’s nothing really difficult if you only begin – some people contemplate a task until it looms so big, it seems impossible, but I just begin and it gets done somehow. There would be no coral islands if the first bug sat down and began to wonder how the job was to be done. – John Shaw Billings (1838-1913)

4. If I’d never have picked up the first person, I’d never have picked up the 42,000 in Calcutta. – Mother Teresa

5. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain

6. The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper. – Aristotle

7. In despair there are the most intense enjoyments, especially when one is very acutely conscious of the hopelessness of his position. – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

8. Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many – not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. – Charles Dickens

9. The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials. – Chinese proverb

10. If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

11. If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

12. One cannot do right in one area of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong in another; Life is one indivisible whole. – Gandhi

A daily dose of words of wisdom can make one smile or laugh, strive harder or relax better. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises, “Words of wisdom are good seeds that are nurtured by positive thoughts – “I can do this,” “I am well, safe, and happy,” “I am a beautiful person.” Continue enriching your life by planting good seed in rich soil.
