    Just bookmarked this on Stumbleupon. Will definitely get back to this post each week to tweet some remarks that I’ve found to be really inspiring :) Great job putting up this list Tia.

    • says

      Ta, Jason! I’m new to the world of stumbles so really appreciate that as well as your dedication to sharing this post every week :) You rock!

  2. says

    Oh…Em…Gee. Brilliant! I am so keeping this post on tap for great inspiration! THANK YOU, Tia for such great wisdom nicely wrapped up in such a thorough post! Being visual, the pics totally add so much and really spoke to me. I was really struck by the photo of the hand with the saying about letting go… Has been a major theme for me this past week. Thanks again!

    • says

      Thanks Amy! The intention was to do a 75 quote picture post but it was hard work finding the right images to complement the quotes so I decided to go with good enough :) It’s my fave post ever that I’ve created (feels wrong to say written, ha!). I reckon we all could do with the letting go reminder, huh. Huge appreciation for you!

  3. says

    (just correcting an error in my above thought)

    After 70 tough years of good living, I still seek not a life my way nor your way not their way, but the best way, which is the way that harrms none.

  4. says

    (so sorry, I still erred in both of my above thoughts)

    After 70 tough years of good living, I still seek not a life my way, nor your way, nor their way, but the best way, which is the way that harrms none.

    (my point for making the errors above was to show how easy it is to mistate your comple thoghts to others)

    • says

      Hey Bobby .. do you mean to say you left 3 comments on purpose?

      Still not sure what point you’re making – are you saying that your preference is to live life the best way or are you telling me that there’s a problem with people wanting to live their lives their way, or something else entirely?

      I suppose that depends on what living your life your way means to you – to me, and to many others here, it means living authentically according to our values, living our best lives ever, owning our magnificence and stepping into our highest potential.

      Thanks for dropping by!

      • says

        To me, the best life-the one I’ve always sought to live, but failed-is one lived by harming none and helping many. Any other life-even where one claims a life of being their very best self-is less than the best life.

        • says

          We’re saying the same thing in different ways, it seems :) My best life assumes kindness and oneness – helping but not harming others is but a part of it. Thanks for clarifying, have an awesome Sunday!.

  5. says

    No intent for seeming to argue you point, but in my view, kindness, oneness, and other such good acts toward others is but a tiny part of helping without harming.

    you may be kind to, and one with me, even love me; but at same time and act, harm another.

    I have been steadly selling everything i own for the past 10 years, and i still am for the sole purpose of helping to end poverty everywhere evermore for everyone, because i earned what i own with personal hard work and i’m selling it all at bargain prices, i harming none but helping many in my effort to help end poverty. to top it off i’ve personally lived in poverty for the past 8 years, an income of only $755.00 per month. see http://bobpippin.ning.com and http://cutterswholesale.com for just 2 examples of what i’m saying.

    i only tell you all this trying to make my original point as clear as possible, because at 70 years old, i still think i’m failing my idea of not living my way, nor your way, not their way but the best way.

    Thanks for tolerating this old man.

  6. says

    For quite a few their inner thoughts are so obvious it makes no sense to hide it from their boyfriend or husband. Love discovers depiction in various ways apart from the direct way by making use of love quotes.

    • says

      Actions are more important than words, and yet, words have power. Power we give them, no doubt. Kindness & love are shown in many ways – senses, words, actions..

  7. says

    To me, True Love best expresses itself clearly in thoughtful actions; and, thus, verbal expressions, such as love quotes, make good poetry, but are never really needed to depict True Love.

    Let no one doubt, I honestly enjoyed every last word expressed in the “75 Most Inspirational Kickass Quotes on Life, Love, Happiness, Change & Growth.”

    I think such poetry is truely useful in making the otherwise busy mind stop and think about the miraculous beauty of the Devine Gift of life, as well as inspiring so needed worthwhile caring action.

  8. says

    This is such a terrific list. I keep coming back to this page. Foreseeing I’m going to keep this open on a desktop window for a while. Thanks for sharing!

  9. says

    Hi Tia,

    Awesome list!

    The amazingly cool thing about this list is you could spend life-time dwelling on each quote. So much inspiration, joy-filled, high energy stuff here. Inspiring quotes have been a real catalyst for me. I used to be a pessimist. After intense personal development – including feasting on inspirational quotes – I’ve penned over 1000 inspirational quotes myself.

    Feed on the stuff, and it rubs off on you….then you become influenced by these ideas….then you begin to embody the quotes themselves. Awesome, how it works.

    Thanks for sharing the list with us Tia!

    # 68 comes from a poem called How did you Die by Edmund Vance Cooke

    He writes “the harder you’re thrown, the higher you’ll bounce,” but I’ve also seen it like you have it, “The harder you fall the higher you’ll bounce.” But it’s the former that’s correct.

  56. almira says

    dont wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love and how muh you care.because when they’re gone ,no matter how loud you shout and cry they cant hera you anymore.

      • Agent47 says

        There will come a time when we will have to give up someone we love so much, a time when we will have to shove our feelings aside and let our minds and not our hearts decide for us. don’t be afraid to lose love. When you do, it is simply not meant for you. If there was a time when you cried because you found love and lost it, there will also be a time when you can smile again. If you give yourself a chance to be happy you will experience that glowing feeling again and find the love that you can keep in your heart forever.

        • princejham says

          can relate with this one…
          you’re right…

          • patrick hlongwa says

            hi amanda, truly you are blessed ,do not let go,find another way of solving the prblem.it’s either you both sit down and talk and tell him what will you do and not do if he still doing the same thing….but truly women and men are both the same when it comes to honesty in relationship yet you may be good for your husband or the husband might be good to you…its difficult to find the person who loves ,respect ,honest and care about you the same way you do to him

            • Katy says

              You are certainly not giving good this woman advice!!! GET OUT OF ABUSIVE SITUATIONS! If a person is worth it, they will get help and come back for you after youhave time to recover from the damage they caused. MANY WOMEN DIE AT THE HANDS OF AN ABUSER HOPING IT WILL GET BETTER EVERY DAY!!!

              • S G says

                I was in a verbally abusive relationship. He never hit me but the awful things he used to call me or say too me were just to much to bear any longer. He told me to leave one to many times. I always thought things would get better but they never did. I left and never looked back.

                • Josie says

                  S G… I too was in a verbally abusive relationship. It leaves a mark in your hear and soul. I never thought (nor did he), that I would ever have the strength to leave him. But after 19yrs.. and 3 kids later.. I did. I am so much happier now. His head is still spinning. He said no one would ever want me.

            Amanda, time to realise your worth, let him off with or without the car, karma will catch up with him. It will bite him after you have moved on to more fulfilling things. We reap what we sow and so will you. I’ve gained great strength from the above, I was once in your position and I finally woke up and valued myself. Life is great. I wish you a great life. C

    I’v been in a heart breaking relationship for two years.A relationship with a girl thats of a very bad attitude,talks shit to me knowing it was tough for me to leave,always finding herself each in the company of men,some of which she confessed during one of her helpless states that she kissed when we had problems.Things never get better any day.There are times i see for myself the rumors of she having fan with grown men at the swimming pool,riding in their cars etc.Trust me,their were much more heart breaking staffs but its always been had to break up. Even when i’m so confident to break up she comes begging and i let go.My worry is we are both in the same institution and i dont get much of her attention during vacations and we dont even get to meet,which i wanna believe she would let go of me soon as we complete school 2013 june.What do u guys think please?

    I love him so much…and he does not at all…….but he likes me a lot ……I am not knowing how to keep full stop at the liking phase itself…..

    After knowing also that he does not loves me I am waiting for a magic lamp to light the lamp in his hearth…

    But I am seriously missing him and not understanding how to continue my future with out him

  69. Sspr says

    I am in love wit a gal who is working wit me in my office. She is an European and I’m an Indian. She is the one who approached me first and started talking to me. In our chatting, she was the one who pulled my toungue to say that I’m in love wit her. Now everything got changed and she said that we can be Frds. I didn’t accept that I said I’m still in love wit her. So she stopped chatting and looking at me and now making fun of me with her colleagues for the messages and emails that I have sent during her absence.
    I don’t know what I need to do as I feel very disgusting when others laugh at me for loving or chasing her. But..one I know is that I love her Soo much. Even though she hurt me badly I’m still praying for her goodness and happiness..!! I don’t know whether there will be any miracles but I feel like there is no LOVE in this world. Still can’t understand why she had done this to me..? But..as I said to her, I’m leaving my family, Frds and everyone to wait for her to come back. If she didn’t then just one more life get wasted..!! But I feel like there is something good or great in loving someone blindly and keep on waiting for her..!!

    Strange thing is we all know the reason to avoid sadness but we don’t even try it on ourselves…???? All are wise enough to know Bad and Good in life but still we don’t change ourselves…???? Need to think what is blocking our mind to make a prompt action…..to get results…in life…thinking….

    Chivalry is not dead ladies and gentleman. Honesty is what makes people great, and Charity is a selfless act that one does without the expectation of something in return, but done only to help our fellow man or woman improve his/her quality of life.

  78. Tori Lee says

    People will hate you, rate you, shake you, and break you. Pick every flaw you have just to make THEM feel better. They might think of how annoying, ugly, and stupid you are. But why care what they think! Self-worth doesn’t comes from what others think – its from thinking that you are worthy. So don’t worry of what others think. Just be happy XD Be your self.

  79. says

    my life was down to death seeing my friends upgraded to next class and i feel so lonely and uncomfortable. Every single day i live i feel myself no reason to live. But the day i go through this pages the extravagance in the words makes me relax from embarrassment i live with. There is nothin in this world that would make me down again. So thank you so much and long live inpirational quote

  80. says

    46 & 50 are kinda funny, but it’s truth.

    Don’t worry, be happy; Happiness is a choice. Choose happy.

    We have a choice in life, and we decide to be in where we are, what we are.

    If unhappy, that’s because we choose to; if worry, that’s also what we choose it to be.

    Live life, choose a wonderful one. :)
