Finding Motivation In A Difficult World

Finding Motivation In A Difficult WorldBy now you have probably read enough self-help articles to write your own book on the subject. New Age writers are highly popular and there are so many people who claim to have all the solutions we need to create a perfect world.

Have you ever wondered why modern philosophy never seems to provide any real answers? Perhaps it is because there are simply no new questions and the so-called experts refuse to examine the events of the past. When we study the experiences of those who came before us, we may gain the knowledge we need to build a better future.

With that goal in mind, we have gathered the best motivational quotes we could find to guide you on your journey. Read them carefully and learn from the collective wisdom of our predecessors. As George Santayana wrote in The Life Of Reason, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

1. “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.

2. “The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”

Arthur C. Clarke was a British science fiction writer, popularizer of space travel, futurist, and inventor. He is famous for being co-writer of the screenplay for the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the most influential films of all time.

3. “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down happy.  They told me I didnít understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

John Lennon was an English musician, singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a founding member of the Beatles, the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed band in the history of popular music.

4. “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece. He was also a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

5. “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
