More Than Just Words...


"Colors fade, temples crumble, empires fall, but wise words endure." ~Edward Thorndike

I love quotes...I collect them in fact. Whenever I come across a thought provoking, inspirational, or uplifting quote, I save it. To me, a powerful quote is more than just words. In fact, history is filled with inspirational words that created defining moments for human civilization.

I like to use these quotes to center myself. I feel that we can almost always attribute any given quote to at least one aspect of our lives or to a particular emotion that we have been feeling. Gandhi, Martin Luther King JR., Socrates, Mother Theresa, Robert Frost, and Hellen Keller are but a few of the sources of the most thought-provoking quotes known to man.

For a little over a year, I've been sending out an inspirational quote via my "thought of the day" email. These quotes come from the collection of various quotes that I have collected over the years. I know some of my blogger friends already receive these from me, but for those who do not, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to ask you if you would like to be added to this list.

If so, please email me at keith_wynn@hotmail.com and let me know if you would like to be added to my recipient list! You can also follow me on Twitter here. I look forward to connecting!

Do you find inspiration in quotes? Is there a quote that you find particularly inspiring?

  2. I love quotes too!! I take pics of them on my phone when I am out and about so I don't forget them ... I pin them to my Pinterest boards -- just LOVE them!!!!

    Here is my all time fave one --

    Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will...
    From the movie....Hope Floats

  3. nice....quotes are cool...they contain inspiration or just thoughts that you have to mine for wisdom as well...one of the quotes that have stuck with me over the years comes from a 1999 movie called Big Kahuna...

    "It doesn't matter whether you're selling Jesus or Buddha or civil rights or 'How to Make Money in Real Estate With No Money Down.' That doesn't make you a human being; it makes you a marketing rep. If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore; it's a pitch. And you're not a human being; you're a marketing rep. "

  6. I have a book/journal of quotes I've collected for years, I just love them! I think my favorite one is Maya Angelou - I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
    I've found it to ring very true!

  13. I like quotes. Sometimes I find one that seems to sum up what I've been feeling and couldn't express. That is always helpful.

  18. I also feel deep meaning in quotes, they are like threads that connect us through time and across distance: powerful bonds.

  19. I love quotes, too. I used them often on my own blog. Sometimes a single quote can summarize what I want to say.

  20. I always find inspiration in quotes and I used to collect them long ago. Unfortunately most of my books and manuscripts are still packed away due to several moves I've made in the past few years.

  21. There is a lot of inspiration in quotes, and I did use to collect them actually. Then I began inspiring myself, and not needing the words of others. I do hope though that one day, people latch on to my words, as I latched on to others.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ah yes, I enjoy quotes too...whether it is a tidbit of truth, or inspiration or some levity for the moment or for life.

    One of my fav quotes is ironically, one of mine:

  26. I collected quotes at school, on the covers of my school books and folders - they were mostly music quotes, but very deep for a 17 year old!

  27. Hi Keith,

    Although I reflect upon well known quotes as positive reinforcement, I actually prefer to see quotes from my friends in the blogging world. I hardly ever use quotes on my blog. I prefer to find quotes to inspire from my 'inner child' and hopefully others will see them. You be well and thanks for the offer.

    A positive environment starts from within and transcends to the outside world....

  34. Oh quotes are so inspiring indeed!! I keep a word doc of my fav quotes and add to it if I come across something new that I liked. And there's also a separate doc. with all of the gratitude quotes I come across lol I've been posting those thankful ones on Facebook every Monday for almost 2 years now and I have never once repeated myself yet, can you imagine!

  35. Quotes definitely are inspiring. Here's an interesting thought though -- Perhaps one day, far past our own passing, those who have come after us will use our words, and find inspiration in them. Cool huh?

    ReplyDelete
  36. My feelings on quotes are mixed. I have many friends that post quotes from various sources. Sometimes it can really bless me other times it makes me wonder just what these quotes mean to the one posting them. One thing is sure quotes are everywhere around us but whether they effect us or not is up to us.

  37. I am another person who finds much of value in quotes. I first stumbled on Goodreads (which is a website largely devoted to books) b/c of their extensive quote library.

  43. I love quotes as well, and I have a book I actually write them down in so I don't forget about them. 3 of my favorites:

    Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after a step forward is not a disaster - it's a cha-cha. - Robert Brault

    Happiness is a form of courage - Holbrook Jackson

    Ring the bells that still can ring;

  44. I too love quotes. I worked for BellSouth for many years and they had a corporate library chocked full of books on tape. I've listen to Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, Stephen Covey and and many more.
    I held on to a lot of the words I learned in these books through the years, but I still have my radar up for good quotes I've never heard, or have heard and forgotten.

  45. Hi Keith! I enjoy quotes too, although I have never collected them formally. I hope that you are having a great weekend!

  46. I love inspirational quotes. I have a number of them on my bulletin board at work to read when I need to be lifted up. I don't have it in front of me, so the words might not be exact, but one of my favorite is from Albert Schweitzer: "Until he has compassion for every living thing, man himself shall not find peace."

  47. I don't know who originally said it; but when I was a child I had an uncle who said this again and again and again & laughed each time after he said it:

    "The trouble with doing nothing is you never know when you're done!"

    This uncle is long ago deceased; but his memory (and his quote) live on!

  48. Quotes? I love them and have collected them since childhood.

    My three personal favourites:

    1. The worst thing you can do to another is to need them without wanting them. - My Dad

    3. There is no most excellent beauty without some strangeness in the proportion. - Sir Francis Bacon

  50. Facebook friend request coming your way....

    Quotes can be inspiring or slightly annoying if sent via Facebook on a twee little background with birds and angels and sickly guff about friends.

    Then again, this is coming from someone who can never remember a joke, or a quote or even which direction to turn the key in order to unlock her front door. The only thing remotely connected to a quote that has emerged since typing this comment is this pearler:
    Nothing succeeds like a budgie without teeth.

  51. Thanks for stopping by my blog. One of my favorites I got from a card one of my sisters sent to me. "You know it was a good day if you didn't hit or bite anyone." Nathanial, age 4.

  53. quotes are simply the best. that is what my blog is filled with...i mix them with my photography...and it is uncanny that when i sit down to blog that my photo and quote add up to just what i am feeling. love your blog!!


    “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

  55. At different points in my life, I have found quotes particularly inspiring. My favorite of all time is from Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman":


    "It's not what you say, it's how you say it. Because personality always wins the day."

  56. Pinterest has been so great for collecting quotes and wonderful words. My favorite is the Mary Oliver quote on my blog - "Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with this one wild and precious life?". Constantly reminds me to stretch further, dig deeper, and truly feel & be everything that happens during this life.

  66. Some quotes I like to keep close so that I can read them every day.

  94. My favourite quotes are the ones by ordinary people. I will always remember one by my late grandma. When something went wrong she used to "Mas se perdio en la guerra" (We lost more in the war). I always thought that she was referring to a particular conflict. I once asked her which war she was talking about and she replied: "All wars. They're all the same. You always end up losing more than you win". Wise woman, she was, my grandmother.

  101. Hi Keith, I'm not on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. I think a lot of these social sites are distracting and can become addictive. I enjoy blogging because it's a creative outlet, and the arts, like poetry and photography enrich my life experience. I really can do without all the social mindless chatter on those other sites. Yes, words are important but they must have meaning, and above all, words must be carried through with actions. There is no point in having dreams if nothing is actually done to achieve those dreams. I would rather focus on "real life" than constantly updating a silly FB status. I want to use my time wisely. Quotes are great if we can live up to them :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I, too, have been collecting beautiful quotes for years, and one of my blogs is solely for quotes.. :)

    Have a splendid day, Keith...

  103. I love quotes to! My favorites are:

    Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. - Pablo Picasso


    Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. - Ralph Waldo Emmerson

    I should mention that my sister was looking for an E name when she was prego with her last child. She knew her E baby would possibly not make it. I said, "He has to be Emmerson." I knew that there were plenty of quotes that I could post to her to help her through whatever happened. Well in June he'll be 2 years old. He's undergone a lot, but he's here. He has Trisomy 18, which is too much of the 18th chromosome.

    Lastly: I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling. - Frida Kahlo

  113. More than just words... I wrote a poem with that title! (You can check it out here if you want: http://figment.com/books/548324-More-than-words). I also wrote a song called 'Just Words' that is about words that sometimes people say but don't really mean.

    I always find inspiration in quotes, but especially in your blog. Keep writing :)

  114. I hope you have read "The Traveler's Gift" by Andy Andrews. I feel like you would take a lot of inspiration from it. I know I did!

  117. I collect quotes as well, and LOVE your idea of sending out a daily quote to your friends and readers! I have thought of doing that via FB, but don't know why I didn't think to do so through email. I like it. Way to be! :) PS. Here is a quote to add to your list (or read again if the case may be):

    "Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other."

    Elder Marvin J. Ashton

    Have an awesome day, Keith!
    Corine :D
