Some great quotes here Stephen.

I know you didn’t ask, but I’m going to anyway .. my all time favourite is a Gandhi quote. He was asked by a journalist:

Journalist “What do you think of Western Civilisation?”
Gandhi “I think it would be a good idea.”

This is my favorite one.
“The question is not, Is there life after death? The question is, Is there life before death?” — Alan Cohen

This is very deep and cleverly spoken.

Hi Gordie, Alan Cohen writes with such wisdom, I sometimes feel like I can just grab every sentence and turn it into a stand alone quote.

Self Improvement Guy February 2, 2010 at 10:53 am

I agree with Gordie – that quote struck me immediately ….

Excellent work here, Stephen – I will definitely tweet this out. I come across many of these types of lists, but this one has so many I hadn’t heard before. Thanks for the excellent content.

Best to you,
Scott

Robin Easton February 2, 2010 at 12:28 pm

Wow! What a wild mix. I laughed and aaah-ed over them and related to many here. BTW. Hi dear Stephen. LOL!!! 🙂

The quote that really gripped me (aside from women changing men 🙂 LOL!) was this one: ““When you invest your time and energy in stuff that drags you down, you die a little bit every day.” – Alan Cohen” That is a powerful message. It invites us to look at what in our lives feels like it’s dragging us down. Then to consider why we are doing it, but more importantly do we NEED to do it. In most cases we don’t, maybe in all.

I too LOVE this one: ““The question is not, Is there life after death? The question is, Is there life before death?” — Alan Cohen” And I can honestly say that I know WITHOUT doubt that there IS life before death. I make dang sure of that every single day. Thank you for sharing these, Stephen. It was a fun post and read. 🙂 Hugs, Robin

I love quotes too Stephen and you managed to find some really great, light-hearted ones that I haven’t heard before. I have to mention one that gave me a big laugh and prompted me to say Amen, “The only time a woman succeeds in changing a man is when he’s a baby.” — Natalie Wood

Now that’s a quote for ya! Thanks so much for adding a much-needed ray of sunshine at the end of my busy day.

Yes Stephen, I do love quotes and you chose some good ones. They can say so much in so few words. One of my favorites is by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”

Hi Jonathan, that’s a great thought by Emerson. You are right, they say so much in so few words.

These are comprehensive list you have provided here. I particularly like Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote “We are always getting ready to live, but never living.” Most of us live like zombies, we never truly live in the moment. 🙂
