    ~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~


    February 1:
    -It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.
    Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

    -You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
    Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

                        uhm....some of the stuff u saying, dakota, is more funny than motivational.
                        hmmm...Oro?

                        "God did not make people. People made God"~ the computer animated guy from Cowboy Bebop :laugh:....it may not seem like it's motivational, just because it's from an anime, but whateva!

                        "People do not have the right to take the lives of others"~ Rem from Trigun :laugh: yet another movitational quote from an anime

                                        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.

                                                I update my signature quite often with memorable, and often inspirational quotes. *cough*funnygamequotes*cough*

                                                That aside, I have a pretty motivational quote.
                                                "Remember this, and also be reminded of its truth - the future is not in the hands of fate, but in ourselves." - Jules Jusserand

                                                I pretty much live by that. o.o

                                                    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%. :)
