10 Life Lessons in Quotes

I read somewhere that just as we feed our bodies with good food, we should feed our minds with good quotes. Following is a list of 10 quotes that I believe can be life lessons and my take on them…

    • You are stronger than your difficulties
  2. Seek respect, not attention. It lasts longer.
    • Stop pleasing people. Do your thing & you’ll earn the respect

  4. Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you, and if you are alive they crave your company. – Β Imam Ali
    • Be a listening ear, a reason for someone’s smile, a shoulder to cry on…
  5. Be somebody who makes everybody feels like a somebody.
