Greatness is reached for by so few of us. Yet we were born to be great, every one of us. We have become culturally hypnotized to think we are small, insignificant, unimportant, unloveable, and undeserving. Wake up, take a look around at the sky, and the earth around your. See your friends and family. Look for their greatness. There is greatness in every single human being, and we spend very little time looking for it.

As you look for it in others, you may begin to find a little of it in yourself. Greatness is not about being arrogant, or egotistical. Greatness is about reaching into the heart and soul of yourself and letting the realness of your love shine from your heart to others.

Dostoevski said “If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things.
Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.”

You are great when you love. Enjoy and let yourself relax a little into your greatness with the following inspirational quotes.

      Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambition.
      Small people always do that, but the really great
      make you feel that you, too, can become great.
      –Mark Twain

      Laud not what you are, but what you may become.

      No great man lives in vain. The history of the world
      Is but a biography of great men.
      –Thomas Carlyle

      Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
      –Ralph Waldo Emerson

      No one ever became great by imitation.
      –Samuel Johnson

      Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
      –Samuel Johnson

      People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
      –Andrew Carnegie

      To be great is to be misunderstood.
      –Ralph Waldo Emerson

      The greatest piece of real estate you own is the 6” between your ears.

      In great attempts, it is glorious even to fall.

      Great men are meteors designed to burn so that the earth may be enlightened.
      –Napoleon Bonaparte

      Love all God’s creation, the whole and every grain of
      sand in it. Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light. Love
      the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love
      everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things.
      Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better
      every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world
      with an all-embracing love.
      Feodor Dostoevski
