    What a wonderful idea for a website. Someplace to go and get inspired and motivated. I really like that you created a weekly inspirational theme to the quotes. And I really like the fact you collected these quotes across many cultures and walks of life. It gives me a valuable perspective and insight to how people inspired and motivated themselves during certain periods of history, or in certain geographic locale. The common theme among the quotes is our need to connect with others to find our solace and center. Although we are from various walks of life and cultural influences, we all have one thing in common; the need to love ourselves.

    No matter how it will be hide, truth will always prevail.

    These are such good quotes. One of my favorite is, “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” by Soren Kierkegaard

    I see truths in some quotes and opinion on others. Overall, whatever is our opinion or perspective, the truth of consequence lies await.

    Hi, I went through your article on weekly positive quotes. I can see that most of them are about the truth – one important aspect of life that most of us avoid. even though there’s also a saying that the thru shall set you free, other truths are not good at all. I liked the other quote that says ” I’m for truth, no matter who tells it, I’m for justice, no matter who is for, or against it… ” Thanks for sharing, and I will be following your posts to learn more about these positive quotes.

    Thanks for these beautiful quotes from world-renowned people. These people were true, people of great minds. Our world today seemed to be going through the same turmoil that evoked the quotes. These people, at their times on this earth, were fighting injustices. One is tempted to ask why no change in human relationships. Were these quotes mere words that fell on deaf ears? I think I have the answer to those questions. One answer is humans don’t know their Maker or why they were put here on earth. Many of them think that life is about eating and drinking, care little about others, own all the world, and don’t care about other creations of the Creator. Though humans hardly recognize it, the Creator is constant and has established His rules to guide all living things. Unfortunately, some humans believe they can change the will of the Creator. This is the reason behind the state of the earth. Thanks for sharing.

    The problem with truth is that it can be different in everyone’s eyes. Because we are wired differently. And this is why it is important to aim for a balance perspective which is not even easy to do at all times.

      I agree, truth is often subjective and is a matter of perspective! Thanks for the interesting comment!
