I love using quotes

I love using quotes for a variety of reasons. First, quotes can be very inspirational, motivational, emotional, etc. to fit into whatever “feeling” you are going for.

For example, your friend has gone through a tough time emotionally and has shut off the world to keep from getting hurt again. Jim Rohn’s quote, “The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy.” Might get them to shift their thinking.

Quotes can be used to lend credibility to your argument. For example, you’re in a discussion regarding our current welfare society, you might quote Ben Franklin’s, “I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.” Now it’s not your point, it’s Ben Franklin’s point. And who could argue with Ben Franklin?…

Which is another reason I so love using quotes. If I tell you something, you may brush it aside. Who am I to be giving you direction? But if it comes from Socrates or Thoreau or Patton, it has weight behind it and is worth consideration.

Finally, I love quotes because they bring things into perspective. Life can be pretty trecherous at times, but no matter what life throws at us, and no matter how exasperated we may become trying to cope with the details of life, we can bring it all into perspective with a simple quote from the Bible, “This too shall pass.”
