The Value Of Quotes

Let us value and appreciate the quotes that are sent to you in whatever manner it may be. A lot of people disregarded them and consider them as a mere quote, just like that. If only we realize that a mere quote can be so much more. Here are a few observations, from my point of view:

  1. Quotes are created by authors because something touched him/her and would love the same effect be felt by you.

  2. Quotes can summarize a lesson learned. We don't live a lifetime to learn all the lessons, let others lessons be ours as well.

  3. Words have power. A powerful quote/lines can make a difference, change a life, lift your spirit and perk you up with positivity.

  4. A quote is also a form of reminder that the sender values you and loves you and is concerned about you.

  5. It's not a just a quote per se. If you'll read between the lines and try to decipher it, word for word, you'll realize the brilliance the message is trying to convey.

  6. A quote can define an experience felt by others, whether a sad or jovial experience, moments of grief, moments of remembering your spirit.
These are just a few reasons and am sure there are a lot more. So, the next time you receive a quote, find time to read, reflect, and embrace its wisdom. For sooner or later, that quote will be of use somehow, someway, and it can build a better person in YOU.
