Inspirational Quotes on Being Alive

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Inspirational Quotes on Being Alive help me get through some of the bad times. Sometimes when I’m contracted, I forget Agatha’s inspirational quote ‘just to be alive is a grand thing.’ So here are some luscious inspirational quotes to help you remember. Sarah Ban Breathnach had a ceiling tile fall on her head in a restaurant. She lost sight, taste, hearing, balance, and her ability to speak well, or understand language for a time. Even wearing clothes hurt. As she began to regain these lost senses, she was touched by the wonder of the ordinary. Our life is precious. Being alive counts. Read these inspirational quotes to remember how sweet it is being alive. Savor these inspirational quotes when you want to celebrate. Contemplate these inspirational quotes to remember what a treasure you are.

      It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth-and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up-that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
      -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

      Approach the day as if it were an adagio-a melody played in an easy, graceful manner. Listen to music that soothes and uplifts your spirit. And while you listen, pause to consider how all the individual notes come together harmoniously to give expression to the entire score.
      -Sarah Ban Breathnach

      So it shall be with your world. With harmony as your guide, trust that your everyday moments will soon begin to resonate in a rhapsody of fulfillment.
      -Sarah Ban Breathnach

      I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

      -Agatha Christie

      Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
      -Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

      And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so?
      I did.
      And what did you want?
      To call myself beloved, to
      feel myself
      Beloved on the earth.
      -Raymond Carver – “Late Fragment”

      I have passionately fallen in love with Life—despite all of its complexities, compromises, and contradictions–and Life has passionately revealed how much I’m loved, in spite of mine. Believe me, you will never find a lover who will adore, desire, caress, embrace, and delight you more than Life.

      -Sarah Ban Breathnach –

Leadership Inspirational Quotes

Thursday, February 05th, 2009

Leadership of all kinds is needed and Inspirational Quotes about Leadership follow. Today’s inspirational quotes brought smiles. See Staubauch’s inspirational quote about leaders being like tea bags. I smiled thinking ‘the water’s hot enough’ as I read these inspirational quotes. I’m reading Life is Sweet. She ended it with an inspirational quote that seems especially fit for our inspirational quotes topic on Leadership. Leadership of this kind is vital. Show leadership today. Light up the lives around you suggested in this first inspirational quote.

      The single most important action you can take when it comes to happiness is spreading it around. Happiness never decreases by being shared; in fact it often increases exponentially as it travels from one person to another. If you can light up the lives of everyone you meet, think of how many thousands of candles that will be. Think of how much lighter the world will be.
      -Addie Johnson – Life is Sweet

      Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them

      -J. Philip Everson

      Do a little more than you’re paid to. Give a little more than you have to. Try a little harder than you want to. Aim a little higher than you think possible, and give a lot of thanks to God for health, family, and friends.
      -Art Linkletter

      Leadership is the ability to persuade others to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.

      -Dwight D. Eisenhower

      The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the two the leader must become a servant and a debtor. That sums up the progress of an artful leader.

      -Max Depree

      Leadership implies movement toward something and convictions provide that direction.
      -Don Shula

      It’s not what you know or whom you know. It’s what you are that finally counts.

      Zig Ziglar

      Without integrity no one listens. Without trust no one follows.

      Zig Ziglar

      It’s not your position in life-it’s the disposition you have which will change your position.
      -Dr. David McKinley

      Team-builders are the tea bags of life. They perform when the water is hot.
      -Roger Staubach

      Do not follow in the footsteps of the old masters, but seek what they sought.

Choice Inspirational Quotes

Monday, February 02nd, 2009

Choice Inspirational Quotes go for the jugular. Our choices are what create our future. Many people are on autopilot. Choice inspirational quotes remind us to treasure this function of choice, to reach for its power. Choice inspirational quotes tell us to tend the fires of our dreams by making choices lit by our vision and heart.

      One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words. It is expressed in the choices one makes. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

      -Eleanor Roosevelt

      What you do with your time, what you do with information, and what you do with your body and your focus relative to your priorities-these are the real options to which you must allocate your limited resources.
      -David Allen

      Choice-not chance-determines human destiny

      -Zig Ziglar

      Take what is given and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with what is going on. Not against, with.

      -Robert Frost

      If you choose not to decide-you still have made a choice!
      -Neil Peart

      We have to believe in free will. We’ve got no choice.
      -Isaac Bashevis Singer

      Hell is to drift. Heaven is to steer.

      George Bernard Shaw

      In any given moment we are guided by one of two maps: a vision map, which is a deliberate plan for our future, or a default map, which is made up of our past. Choices made from our default map-our repetitive, automatic programming-do not nourish our flames, nor do they move us closer to our dreams.
      Debbie Ford

      Every time we make a choice that is inconsistent with our heart’s desires, we are not only moving away from what we say we want in life but actually dampening our life force-that unique inner power that keeps us alive spiritually and physically.
      Debbie Ford

      Choice might just be our most precious gift.
      Debbie Ford

Other inspirational quotes you might enjoy are Dreams. Life inspirational quotes remind us of the raw Mystery which flames our lives. Strength inspirational quotes call to choose Character.

Let these inspirational quotes help us remember we are co-creators stoking our own fires, often fueled by the fires of others and the universe.
