50 Quotes That Will Free Your Mind

50 Quotes That Will Free Your Mind

We are our thoughts. We cannot change anything
if we cannot change our thinking.

You have a train of thought on which you ride when you are alone and quietly thinking.  The self-worth you feel, as well as the happiness your life brings, depends upon the direction in which this train is moving, the baggage it carries and the emotional space through which it travels.  Between life’s stimulus and your reaction is where this space exists; within it is your power to choose how you react, and in your reaction lies your growth, freedom and happiness.

If you truly want to change your life, you must first change your mind.  You must free it from the restrictive thinking that holds you back.

Here are 50 thought-provoking quotes gathered from our sister site, Everyday Life Lessons, and from our blog archive that will help tweak your thinking and set your mind free.

  5. Ultimately, it’s not what you do every once in a while; it’s what you dedicate yourself to on a regular basis that makes the difference.

  12. Control your own destiny or someone else will try for you.
  13. Sometimes standing up to your friends can be just as difficult as standing up to your enemies.
  14. The unhappiest people in this world are the people who care the most about what everyone else thinks.
  15. When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom, or criticize you, remember, they’re telling you their story, not yours.
  16. There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.
  17. No one in the world was ever you before, with your particular gifts and abilities and possibilities.
  18. Your greatest task isn’t to find love, but to discover and destroy all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

  20. Worry gives small things a big shadow.
  21. Focus your conscious mind on things you desire not things you fear.  Doing so brings dreams to life.
  22. It’s not the mistakes and failures you have to worry about, it’s the opportunities you miss when you don’t even try that hurt the most.

  • When people show you who they are, believe them. -Maya Angelou

  • “‘I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.’” -Louis C.K.

  • When I was growing up, I was raised Catholic. As a Catholic, one confesses sins. There was this priest who always saw the good in people. I’d go into the booth, confess my sins, and he’d go through the church ritual of absolving me. What mattered was how he ended the confession. He said, “Keep up the Good Work!”

    I know some people laughed at that. He meant it. Those words today help keep me on a good track. He was a good man, a kind man.

  • I have this tacked to my work bulletin board:

    It’s your attitude at the beginning of a task that determines success or failure.

  • Thank you… that’s all I can say :-)

  • You dont have to be perfect to be happy…

  • You have brains in your head
    You have feet in your shoes
    You can steer yourself
    any direction you choose.
    - Dr. Seuss

  • Excellent insights Marc and Angel. Quotes are powerful motivators for action. I would like to add one more quote by Aristotle, reads:

    “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

    Thank you for sharing.

  • I’ve always been a fan of Covey’s “Begin with the end in mind.”

  • What you visualize will materialize.

    Prevention is better than rememedy.


    Thank you , have the best day ever!

  • Everyday above ground is a great day.

    Every adversity has a benefit.

  • A great attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great LIFE.

    Thank you so much for all of your posts! They really are life changing.

  • “Life is change. To have lived is to have changed often”. (Goethe)

  • I often say/think I don’t regret anything I’ve done. Of course I’ve done plenty of mistakes, but when I did, it was the the best I could do at that moment. The idea always was: “If I’m going to regret something, it’s going to be something I’ve done, not something I haven’t done”. Which is another version of “It’s not the mistakes and failures you have to worry about, it’s the opportunities you miss when you don’t even try that hurt the most.” It gives me incredible peace of mind.

    And by the way, thank you so very much, again, the “When you have two good options, always go with the one that scares you the most, because that’s the one that’s going to help you grow” just lightened something I’ve been wondering about.

    “Coming here” in the morning makes me feel like I’m meeting a dear, caring, insightful and wise friend for breakfast, you (readers and their comments included) lighten up my day. Thank you.

    “Everything is created by the mind alone”
    by the Venerable Master Hua

    “Don’t take it serious, it’s only an experience”
    by R.D.Laing

    Thanks to all for the inspirational quotations!

  • A thought that helped me find some peace and comfort was this:

    ‘It’s not my fault, but it is my problem.’

    It occurred to me when I was going through a hard time at university. At that time, I felt burdened by misplaced feelings of guilt and was fighting a sense of blame and persecution that wasn’t founded on anything tangible, but was nevertheless quite tenacious.

    The words might not sound very positive or inspiring at first, but for me they were empowering: whatever situation we find ourselves in, we have to accept it in order to work on it and eventually change it. But if we’re spending all our energy defending ourselves against imaginary criticism and shadow-boxing our dark side, then there’s no space or energy left to move towards the light.

    This one sentence helped to give me the space inside myself to begin sizing my situation up objectively by taking blame out of the equation; once blame is gone what is left is responsibility. To me, it means the acceptance of the unfairness of life and the willingness to live it anyway.

    I hope this means something to someone else, too.

  • Hope is not a method.

  • An important violin teacher of mine, Broadus Erle, said:

    “We don’t have time for shortcuts.”

    That thought often gave me just enough time to reconsider an action or impulse!

  • It’s not important how you start,
    what counts is how you finish.

  • I love the quotes but also wonder what the sources are.

  • @Argenta: Seems to me like most of these quotes are not necessarily famous quotes. They are small lines from Marc and Angel’s older blog posts and from user submitted quotes and thoughts from the sister website mentioned.

    My favorite quote/thought that frees my mind is a line my mother always repeated to me: Letting go doesn’t mean quitting, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot and should not be.

  • “They can because they think they can”

    “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight”

  • Great thought provoking quotes. I liked the quote

    24. To get something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done.

    It just explains most of the thoughts you have described here.

    Thanks for compiling these nice quotes and sayings.

  • You can not change or affect, how people act or react… you only have control over your own thoughts and actions. Understanding this, is a lifelong journey and a process… something that living for 63 years has taught and continues to teach me. Tolerant patience…

  • This Dr Seuss Quote is one of my favourites:

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those that matter don’t mind and those that mind don’t matter.

    Thanks for the ongoing inspiration guys x

    Live life AS IS not WHAT IF.

  • Lead yourself. A true leader is NOT the one carried on shoulders after victory, he is the first one off his knees in defeat.

    “Fortune favors the bold” Pliny the Elder

    You cannot complain your way to happiness.

    When you hit rock bottom, the shovel is no longer your friend.

  • Thanks for another tasty dose of motivation!

    I have two favorite quotes that I keep close to me in some form in multiple locations (on my bulletin board in my office at home, framed above my desk at work, on slips of paper in my wallet, etc.).

    The first is from Samuel Beckett: “Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

    The second from Emily Dickinson: “Dwell in Possibility.”

  • Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience. ~ Victoria Holt

    Our firmest convictions are apt to be the most suspect, they mark our limitations and our bounds. Life is a petty thing unless it is moved by the indomitable urge to extend its boundaries ~ Jose Ortega Y Gasset

    For any student of history, change is the law of life. Any attempt to contain it guarantees an explosion down the road; the more rigid the adherence to the status quo, the more violent the ultimate outcome will be. ~ From “Years of Renewal” by Henry Kissinger

  • Hello Marc and Angel,

    I’ve been reading your blog for about a year and I am a big fan of yours. I would like to share with you and all readers my favourite strategies which help me to go over the hardest times.

    1. One of my favorite motivational strategies is called “The power of “as if”: if you feel really sad, try to change your mood as if you were happy. Try to live as if you had the best family, the best job, the best friends, the best day… It’s like a game you’re playing with yourself. At the end of the day we have only one choice in life: to be or not to be happy, and what we have to do is just to choose! Not to be happy is simple - I don’t know why (there must be a scientific explanation for it), but our brain tends to stick to negative thoughts and to remember bad things rather than good ones. To be happy requires for many people some effort. For me it is really difficult, I have to learn it like a foreign language. I don’t always believe in myself, I judge myself and doubt my choices and constantly put effort to stop doing all these things. At the most difficult moments I apply “as if”- strategy: I act as if everything was great instead of making a drama, and you know, it brings me back to life somehow.
    “As if”-Strategy originates from a story about one psychologist, who was very unhappy - so one day he decided to end his life. As he was about to commit suicide, he thought: “Before I go, I want to spend one more nice day of my life. I will not think about my problems, I will just live as if I were happy”. An he did. He lived 1 day, 2 days and a long, happy life afterwords. Because he liked living as if he were happy. And - I am deeply convinced of it - this is the only way to live. If you are here, on this planet, enjoy it, make the best out of it! There will be no second today! Every day is a great day, because every day you have air to breathe, light to see, food to it, and may be even someone to kiss, to tell how you love them, to cook a meal for.

    2. My second favorite motivational strategy is “If you don’t know what to do, just do something.” I use this strategy when I do not know what to start with, because my tasks seem endless or I cant even define the tasks. Then I decide just to do something, even if it is not the most important thing. To get something small done helps me to begin with more difficult things, I don’t get “stuck”.

    3. The most difficult state to deal with I call “The end of the world”. I think that everything is bad, the world is terrible, I am an awful person, I can’t reach my goals, my job is terrible, it will never be better. Nothing helps, nothing motivates, the first 2 strategies are of no use. Then the only way out of it is to accept this mood. OK, it is really the end of the world, everything is bad and probably there is nothing I can do, so I will do something I would do if it actually was the end of the world and I only had one last day to live: call my people and say I love them, watch my favorite movie, cook something special, read a good book, write a letter, take a bath or just go to bed early - in one word, I would just take time to do the things I love. Just do it, and the next day you’ll wake up and see the sun shining, and you’ll understand that the end of the world was a false forecast. But this false forecast was very helpful - you finally had some wonderful time with yourself and did things you usually do not have time for.

    I hope you all don’t have too many moments when you can make use my strategies!, but hopefully they are helpful.

    Have a nice weekend!

  • I always tell myself this:

    It is my attitude at the beginning of any project that ultimately determines my success or failure.

  • Positive thinking and do to people what you would like them to do to you.

    Thank you so much for the insightful quotes…

  • Develop an attitude of gratitude - it will change your life.

  • What you fear you draw near.

    What you resist persists.

    We see things not as they are but as we are.

    Great quotes Angel. Thank you!

  • If you don’t ask, the answer is always “no”. When you have the courage to seek, the next “yes” you receive could be the biggest game changer of your life. So, ask questions. Seek answers. Learn, grow, and succeed because of what YOU sought out to ask.

  • I would love to share some of these individual quotes via tweets and on my Facebook Page, but I want to add proper accreditation. To whom should I give credit for them?

  • @Elizabeth Cottrell: As QT points out, these sayings and quotes are simply snippets from our older articles, tweets, and FB posts. Several of them also came from our sister site as mentioned above – and those were either a set of the same (snippets from our older articles) or user submitted. In any case, please just reference our @marcandangel Twitter handle or our web address when you mention them.

    @Kseniia: Such wise strategies. Your second strategy is spot on in my book. If you don’t know exactly what to do, make an educated guess and do something – take a step and then adjust as you move forward if necessary. It’s all about momentum.

    @All: The inspiring sayings and quotes you have shared thus far are incredible. Thank you. Please keep them coming. I can’t wait to check back later and read more. =)

  • FANTASTIC!!!! :) I am grateful for your wisdom with each post that I read! You both are extremely skilled in your writing, delivery, clarity, producing concise, poignant, and relevant information each and every time! A true gift, thank you for sharing with us!

  • Just a thank you.
    Have a great weekend.

  • “Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.” -Walt Whitman

  • Thank you Marc and Angel for these great quotes. They are useful for my soul growth. My soul shall grow from strength to strength.

  • What the mind can perceive and believe it can achieve!

  • Thank you. I shall try one more day….

  • “Sometimes the wrong choices, bring us to the right places.”

  • “Not all who wander are lost.” J.R.R. Tolkien.

    Every time I read the quote I get the shivers!

  • There is more than one that really inspires me, but if I was to choose just one, it would be: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” by Anaïs Nin

  • “You are what you do today, not what you say you’ll do tomorrow.” This quote has freed my mind…. we have lots to read and learn every day yet I don’t understand that the money I’m spending easily comes from the hard work of my father. There are millions of people who don’t get to eat even one meal per day, yet I’m enjoying my meal three times a day. I have many good things in my life which has been gifted by god, yet I never use. There is ultimately a battle is going on within me… I’m am so determined that one day I’ll make my life worth something good.

    Marc and Angel you guys are doing really a great job… love you guys.

  • I tell my students: The great, great majority of your limitations, your shortcomings, your inadequacies … are self-imposed … and undeserved!

  • These were each great! It’s pretty challenging to pick which would be a favorite or either, the best one. Each one was full of the most sincerest truth. I will say this though, 20, 31, and 46 was nothing but the capital “T” in truth! Thanks for these gems, mates! They were filled with awesomeness! ;) Well done!

  • When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. Maya Angelou

  • “It’s just a bad day, not a bad life!”
    on days when it’s hard to hold my head up and not just break down into tears I repeat this over and over in my head.
    My second favorite is from a small blue fish…..JUST KEEP SWIMMING! ~Dori Finding Nemo
    when all else fails this quote and visualizing that little fish at least make me smile :)

    Your posts have helped me so much since I started following y’all about a year ago. There have been days that I was ready to give in and up and by some coincidence in the universe one of your emails will appear in my inbox and lighten my soul.

    I sincerely thank you both Mark and Angel!
    Keep it up and be proud b/c you make a difference to many.
    ~ Anastasia

  • Rebellion is the only thing that keeps you alive meaning think for yourself and don’t conform.

  • Thanks all @ simply amazing inspiring quotes.
    Here is my 2pence worth (less serious ones) -

    1) The whole world is a team. Remember there is no ‘I’ in team….but without ‘me’ the team is ‘ta’.

    2) Why worry? Why be afraid? This is life. At the end of it no one has ever come out alive. So leave worrying for after you die, but for now - live. Enjoy. Relish and love. Give every moment your best shot. Failure is just an experience. Fight hard. Fall fast, rise faster. Its not about how many times you fell, its about how fast you got back. Let the past be glorious(= cherish the happiness and sweetness of the past). Forgive yourself and others. Blame only ignorance, nothing else. Postpone any suicidal/negative thoughts till after you are 99.364!! Make a worry box and write down your worries in a paper and put it in the box every week. Open to read it only after 10 years, usually makes for a fun/silly evening!!

  • Thank you Marc, Angel and commenters! I agree with Deone that every one of these quotes are truth with a capital T, especially this one for me right now:

    I was so moved when I read your quote, “It’s not my fault but it is my problem” that I couldn’t finish the rest.

    There is something to be learned from every difficult issue we’re confronted with even if we did nothing to cause or provoke it. We can blame and complain, we can react rather than respond, we can perpetuate the problem with revenge rather than solution. I have some difficult issues at my job that I did not cause but have not always responded to in a constructive, problem solving way and I have been working on my attitude about it. This quote nails it. Thank you so much.

  • Excellent quotes..

  • These were all so amazing! Two of my favorites…

    “To be is to do.” - Immanuel Kant
    “When one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear.”

  • There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel

  • “Worrying is not an activity and it accomplishes nothing.” ~Me
