~Think everything is just against you, and nothing is working out for you? Perhaps a little word of advice from all people from the past and present will help you find whatever you are looking for, and it is never a harm to read a few short sentences once everyday in order to give you the motivation to live a good life~

~This thread shall be updated daily with new quote(s) everyday. It is up to you readers to decide what all of these means to you, or how it applies to you~

*have no clue what the 2nd phrase within the sentence mean... possibly too much spelling mistake or something? Either way... that quote... it's not the best in the world as that can easily be used as a motivational quote, an insult towards all forms of religion, or an insult to whose who believes fate is in their hands... highly maulable to whatever meaning you wish =( *

I am afraid i have no idea what your talking about. I happen to be a ammature magican, and this quote helps me to keep going, no matter how many times a goof up. It is saying "For those who belive (in magic), no exsplination is nessisary (for magic because they belive), For those who do not (belive in magic [weather it be card or one of the heart]), none (that is to say, an exsplination) will suffice. I am not sure how this leads to fate or religon, but of this offends you, i appologise.

*doesn't offend me... as all aspects of the quotes are quite easily found... just have to imagine what is magic a bit... but just to inform you so you won't throw that quote everywhere any moment*

That aside, I have a pretty motivational quote.

There's this theory that states that humans created the concept of a higher power in order to explain things, or to have hope in life. I mean, way back then, the really poor and downtrodden wanted to have a source of hope in life, and that after death, they would enjoy happiness and stuff.

Oh yeah, and just because I explained it doesn't mean I believe in it 100%. :)

*let's leave that out of the thread... in terms of motivation, that quote is trying to say that "your future is shaped only by you and only you"... however it's up to the reader to decide if that's true or not then... try to stay away from debatable quotes like that one if possible... idea of fate and destiny ties in with religious beliefs too easily*
