60 quotes that will change the way you think

everything sucks

Life can be shitty at times, but that’s just how it is. Things won’t always turn out the way we want it to be; that being said, I hope we still do look at the brighter side of life. (I hope!) But if your mind is already clouded with too much bitterness and incertitude, then I think the things you’ll read below might be really useful to you.

So I came across this article online that contains quotes and sayings about life– that everyone must live through. I find some of it really inspirational and I thought I must share this with you all; just so you know, this could help you in some way if you are either struggling with “life” or dealing with issues and problems about some stuff. I know, we all go through those paano-nang-gagawin-ko phase/s all the time at some point and sometimes all we need is some words of wisdom to fire ourselves with enthusiasm. As it says in the title “60 quotes that will change the way you think”– true enough, I believe. I hope you take the time to read each one of them and maybe learn from it. Free your mind from negativity and brush aside the uncertainty!
(Psh wish I could do the same.. the irony, right?) 

  1. You cannot change what you refuse to confront.
  2. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
  3. Don’t think of cost.  Think of value.
  4. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.
  5. Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t know.  Read Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
  6. No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.
  7. If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so.  Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay.
  8. Making one person smile can change the world – maybe not the whole world, but their world.
  9. Saying someone is ugly doesn’t make you any prettier.
  10. The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well.
  11. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.
  12. The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
  13. It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.
  14. As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.
  15. Making a hundred friends is not a miracle.  The miracle is to make a single friend who will stand by your side even when hundreds are against you.
  16. Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go and move on.
  17. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, etc…
  18. If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.
  19. Don’t choose the one who is beautiful to the world; choose the one who makes your world beautiful.
  20. Falling in love is not a choice.  To stay in love is.
  21. True love isn’t about being inseparable; it’s about two people being true to each other even when they are separated.
  22. While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy.
  23. Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset.
  24. You can learn great things from your mistakes when you aren’t busy denying them.  Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  25. In life, if you don’t risk anything, you risk everything.
  26. When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.
  27. Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
  28. There isn’t anything noble about being superior to another person.  True nobility is in being superior to the person you once were.
  29. Trying to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
  30. You will never become who you want to be if you keep blaming everyone else for who you are now.
  31. People are more what they hide than what they show.
  32. Sometimes people don’t notice the things others do for them until they stop doing them.
  33. Don’t listen to what people say, watch what they do.
  34. Being alone does not mean you are lonely, and being lonely does not mean you are alone.
  35. Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off.  It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.
  36. Anyone can come into your life and say how much they love you.  It takes someone really special to stay in your life and show how much they love you.
  37. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.  Don’t save it for a special occasion; today is special.
  38. Love and appreciate your parents. We are often so busy growing up, we forget they are also growing old.
  39. When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.
  40. Learn to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.
  41. When someone tells you, “You’ve changed,” it might simply be because you’ve stopped living your life their way.
  42. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.
  43. Be happy.  Be yourself.  If others don’t like it, then let them be. Happiness is a choice. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody.
  44. When you’re up, your friends know who you are. When you’re down, you know who your friends are.
  45. Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems; look for someone who will face them with you.
  46. If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him.
  47. No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.
  48. The smallest acts of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
  49. Many people are so poor because the only thing they have is money.
  50. Learn to appreciate the things you have before time forces you appreciate the things you once had.
  51. When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself.
  52. You don’t drown by falling in the water.  You drown by staying there.
  53. It’s better to know and be disappointed than to never know and always wonder.
  54. There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
  55. Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you, but rather what’s happening inside you.  Most people depend on others to gain happiness, but the truth is, it always comes from within.
  56. If you tell the truth, it becomes a part of your past.  If you lie, it becomes a part of your future.
  57. What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.  Read The Power of Habit.
  58. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.
  59. Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
  60. If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

 

Never underestimate the power of the human mind.

      Hi Dear,

      I am amazed at seeing this other side of you. I do sometimes feel what you feel…being pessimistic at times when I experience rough times and hardships…and feeling optimistic at times when all the positive things are happening to me. Though I know… it should be the other way around….I feel this at times when my hormones are corrupting me…=(… Your blogs are inspiration I might say and hope I can read more coming from you….Just keep up where you are good at…Giving positive vibes to people like us.

      God bless dear….=)

    Hi, ate Maine. I’m an avid fan of yours. Quite an introvert as well. I just started reading at you’re blog site/page/etc. right now (I’ve had read some of you blogs on fb before.), and they are all awesome and inspirational. I find it silly, what I’m doing right now-“commenting”- though, I want to express my appreciation and admiration to you.

    Having read your blogs makes me even more wonder how you lived your life. At age 20, you have a lot to say about life and feelings. I love how you make me realize things about my personality and take on life given that I am older than you. I cannot help my self but be amazed and think that you have gone thru life much fuller than i have. I am always on the safe side and afraid to try new things unless it is imposed on me (pag wala ng choice). I envy you for being true and brave enough to realize things at an early age even if you might feel that it is already late, but believe me it is just at the right time or even early. You have a very creative mind. I hope you continue to have peace of mind because as I assess you have this tendency to absorb all and think about things/suffer all by yourself. Now that you are in a world where everything you do matters to someone (can be good or bad), it will become really difficult to move as you please. BE strong and always prepare yourself for the worst. Its always better prepared than caught off guard, but i guess that’s one of your magic, being able to react accordingly especially if caught off guard.:-) God bless you always! Enjoy yourself whenever..

    Hi Maine! I just love your blogs. Not even half done reading all your blogs yet (hope it will not take me a lifetime -OA ko nman pero sana dumami pa ang “tamang panahon” ko na makapagbabad sa net). No. 39 is one of my fave oh well everything naman. Too bad I was already on my way to pick up my daughter from school when your location here in Mataas na Kahoy was revealed or else pupuntahan talaga kita just to see you. My daughter kept telling to go straight to your location after I picked her up but EB was already finished so I said let’s just be content on looking at your new billboard here in Lipa City. In due time (TP) makikita ka rin naming in person. God bless you more Maine. Marami kaming supporters mo and also Alden here. Sa pemily pa lang namen e ang dami na namin. Thanks for the fun and kilig that you, Alden and Jowapao and the whole cast of EB brings to us viewers.

  56. hi ate maine sana mapansin moko kahit hi o smiley lang haha please 😀 always Godbless you 🙂

  57. Hi Maine! I was really inspired by how you started as an ordinary girl and then became a phenomenal celebrity. I might have got related to your blog posts because I too, was a girl who is afraid on taking chances, afraid on what will people say. But when you came out that camera and showed them what you’re made of, I realized that hiding your true self will not make any of your dreams come true. I really admired your courage and bravery, your way of disregarding fear and showing everyone else that no matter what they say, no one will stop you from doing things that makes you happy. You unintentionally became my inspiration and I thank you for that. I hope I can meet you in person. Good bless!

    Hi Maine one of your avid fan here. I keep on reading your blog and what can I say is you’re amazing! Sana ma push mo na maging writer and makapag release ng book and I’ll make sure sold out yun (talaga bibili ako!). I really admire u for being true to yourself despite the fact na andami bashers and negative comments na nababasa mo sa social media but u just ignore them, you continue doing things that makes u happy (Kebs lang sabi mo nga) which is true nmn. Thank you so much sa EB fam sa non stop kilig,saya,inspirasyon at aral na binibigay nyo sa amin. Sabi nga sa tagline or song “isang libo’t isang tuwa buong bansa” EatBulaga! Basta always take good care of yourself and anjan nmn si better half Alden, more power, more success sa inyo dalawa. God bless you and your family. We love you Maine.

    This is truly wonderful. I never knew I needed to read these quotes until today. Hopefully things would turn out great from now on. You may be unaware of it, but you make me happy. Very happy. Thank you so much for doing the things you love and doing the things that make you happy, because it makes me happy knowing that you are happy as well(I used “happy” way too much). I wish you the best!

  60. I came back here since I was feeling a bit down, and needed some inspiration.By the way, congratulations Maine on winning the KCAs!
