FAMOUS QUOTES: Uplifting messages

Updated: Aug 10, 2018

Throughout my life I've always been drawn to reading inspirational quotes to boost my mood when I'm going through tough times. No one has an easy road, we all have things we need to deal with whether it be loss, illnesses or unfulfilled goals, all which cause setbacks and heart ache. The way I've always dealt with my pain is reading and watching videos on talks about life. Searching for quotes that I feel I can relate to which stimulates greater meaning for me to then reflect on. Life is about our experiences and the most important thing is our wellbeing. Take the time for yourself and do things you enjoy. I hope these quotes make you feel enlightened.

There is only one courage and that is the courage to go on dying to the past, not to collect it, not to accumulate it, not to cling to it. We all cling to the past, and because we cling to the past we become unavailable to the present.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Walking in Zen, Sitting in Zen.

When you feel that you have reach the end and that you cannot go, one step further, when life seems to be drained of all purpose: what a wonderful opportunity to start all over again, to turn over a new page.

Eileen Caddy

Footprints on the Path

Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgement will be surer; since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgement. Go some distance away become the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and a lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Don’t try to force anything. Let life be a deep let-go. See God opening millions of flowers every day without forcing the buds.

Bhagwan Shree Ranjneesh

Dying for Enlightenment

Stop sitting there with your hands folded looking on, doing nothing; Get into action and live this full and glorious life. No you have to do it.

Eileen Caddy

The Dawn of Change

Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear you conquer failure, Thoughts crystalize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstance.

Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is the letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misconceptions.

Gerald G. Jampolsky

Love is Letting Go of Fear

If you attack apparent negativity with negativity, you will merely feed and inflame the source. It’s always best to take the positive in any conflict. If you genuinely love or at least send kind thoughts to a thing, it will change before your eyes.

John and Lyn St. Clair Thomas Eyes of the Beholder

You must begin to trust yourself. If you do not then you will forever be looking to others to prove your own merit to you, and you will never be satisfied. You will always be asking others what to do, and at the same time resenting those from who you seek such aid.

Jane Roberts

The Nature of Personal Reality

Come to the edge, he said.

They said: We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said. They came.

He pushed them… and they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire

Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.

For every one that asketh, reseiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be goened.

Mattew 7:7,8

Expect the best; Convert problems into opportunities; be dissatisfied with the status quo; Focus on where you want to go, instead of where you’re coming from; and most importantly, decide to be happy, knowing it’s an attitude, a habit gained from daily practice, and not a result or pay off.

Denis Waitley

The Winner’s Edge

It is in self-limitation that a master first shows himself.

J.W. Von Goethe

Rest satisfied with doing well, and leave others to talk of you as they will.


Success is a journey not a destination. Half the fun is getting there.

Gita Bellin

Realise that you cannot help a soul unless that soul really wants help and is ready to be helped. I tell you to send that soul nothing but love and more love. Be still and wait, but be there when that soul turns for help.

Eileen Caddy

God Spoke to Me.

We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.

Samuel Smiles

If you depend on someone for your happiness you are becoming a slave, you are becoming dependent, you are creating a bondage. And you depend on so many people; they all become subtle masters, they all exploit you in turn.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

The Book of the Books Vol. IV

To be upset over what you don’t have… is to waste what you do have.

Ken Keyes, JR

Handbook to Higher Consciousness

No Soul that aspires can ever fail to rise; no heart that loves can ever be abandoned. Difficulties exist only that in overcoming them we may grow strong, and they who have suffered are able to save.

Annie Besant

Some Difficulties of the Inner Life

To hate another is to hate yourself. We all live within the one universal mind. What we think about another, we think about ourselves. If you have an enemy, forgive them now, let all bitterness and resentment dissolve. You owe your fellow beings love; show them love not hate. Show charity and goodwill towards others and it will return to enhance your own life in many wonderful ways.

Brian Adams

How to Succeed

Giving means extending ones love with no conditions, no expectations and no boundaries. Peace of mind occurs, therefore when we put all our attention into giving and have no desire to get anything from, or to change, another person. The giving motivation lead to a sense of inner peace and hoy that is unrelated to time.

Gerald G. Jampolsky

Love is Letting Go of Fear

Like attracts like. Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes the subconscious identically creates.
