Like ads, I’ll never miss a day without seeing one. Quotes are presented in every platform of social networking, in movies, or in occasional text messages. They may appear as simple as a text, sometimes in fancy colored fonts or planted in a photo; and there are people who spend time in spreading them.
Don’t necessarily believe them just because somebody shared a statement. Among the most famous quotations was from the poet William Wordsworth, “The good die first”. Many good guys have to die before the demise of a villain is true in stories; but it’s not always true in reality. Everybody can share a quote that is not containing any value or is not applicable in the context of our personal lives.
What I like about certain quotations is that I look at the authors and they know success in their lives – Aristotle, Mahatma Gandhi, The Bible, Albert Einstein and John Lennon (..and Brad Pitt). I follow them because I wanted to be successful too. I wanted my mind to be fed with encouragement from these people. Isn’t it magical that people from thousands and hundreds of years can still influence us? That’s immortality.
Hopefully, I’ll learn enough and experience enough so people would replicate whatever insightful sentence I would say.
Among my favorite authors was Dr. Seuss. It’s great that he is successful and people, especially the young, admire his bright words. My favorite is this:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
