A Dozen Short Quotes to Live By

If you have a Facebook page, go check out the profile of some of your friends. Many of them will have some quotes listed on their info page. Of course, there’s actually a section called “favorite quotes” so even if they’re not into reading quotes, they’ll probably have a few there anyways. It’s actually quite interesting to see what quotes your friends decide to place on their profile. Many times, the quote that they choose can tell you a little bit about how they see life in general. This brings me to the type of quotes that I find quite useful which are quotes to live by. These sayings are sort of tidbits of rules or guidelines to remember while going through the experience of life. Some are can be thousands of years old yet still be relevant in today’s time. Whether or not the quote will have any meaning to you depends on where you are in life as well as your values, beliefs, and current focus. Anyway, I hope you find the ones listed below interesting or useful.
