100 quotes to live by

100 quotes to live by
I was looking through quotes online in order to find something inspiring that I could share in this article, and I found it surprising how a lot of websites seem to have lists of quotes where they believe if you follow them, it is something you can live by in life. I intended to pick out some quotes which I felt would match the idea of 'living by these quotes' and things that covered all aspects of life but when I was reading them I realized that a lot of them link together, and they seem to complement each other in the way they pick up on different aspects of life - love, success, greatness, challenge, achievement. I thought it was better to share them all with you.

Part of the reason I thought it would be good to share was to find out if you think people can live by a set of quotations? Maybe some are more important to people than others, and maybe people can live by one quotation rather than a set of 100 that seem to give some 'overview' on life.

The idea that quotations are inspiring and give advice is something I have spoken about since I started writing for the quotations site; however, what I have begun to realize recently that quotes are very individualistic and the reason that here they have a list of 100 quotes is because this way, they will be able to be applicable to everyone, and everyone will be able to find a quote that inspires them.
