“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship.” Little Women – Louisa May Alcott

This is one that I think many of us can resonate with. Not being afraid of hard times and navigating those life hiccups as best we can. We all need to have those moments where we realise that a lot of the tough times we go through will pass, just like a storm does. 

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same” Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte

Wuthering Heights is such a classic, and there are so many iconic lines that come from this epic tale of love, lust, and the moors. But this one that I have mentioned just resonates the most with people I think. When you find that person, your souls become intertwined and you often feel like the same person. 

“Not all those who wander are lost” – Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the ring – J.R.R Tolkein

The Lord Of The Rings books are incredible and iconic classics, so there are some incredible lines from the books that will resonate in today’s world. But I wanted to share this quote. The truth is, sometimes you wander through life, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you have lost your way. Often we just wait and work through what life throws at us.

“Enthusiasm makes up for a host of differences” – A promised land – Barrack Obama 

This is such a good quote and one that could be said to children as well as adults. Enthusiasm for anything can make up for so much. You don’t always have to be the best, but enthusiasm makes up for such a big part. 

“All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us” Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the ring – J.R.R Tolkein 

I know there has already been a quote mentioned from Lord of the Rings, but this one is also something that I think all of us can resonate with. Time is so important, but the truth is, we need to decide what to do with the time, and it is important we do what we can to enjoy the time we do have. 

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting” The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho

We all have goals and things we want to achieve, and often the belief of that dream coming true makes your time, life, and efforts more interesting. It proves that dreams and goals can make life interesting.

“A true soul mate is a mirror, the person that is holding you back, the person that brings you to your own attention so you can change your life” Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

The one thing that we can often forget when it comes to our lives and how we feel is that we need to focus on self-love. Not all of us are fully on board with how we feel. But if we spent time focusing on self-love and feeling good on the inside then the rest will follow. After all, we are the ones in charge of how we live our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. So it is time to focus on how we feel and love ourselves. 

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” To Kill A Mocking Bird – Harper Lee

When it comes to other people, we never know how they feel, what they are going through, unless we get the chance to walk in their shoes. Everyone has their own stories and often we have no idea what someone is going through. It is a lesson to always be kind. It is also a good lesson to listen to. The more we listen, the more we get the chance to learn how other people think and feel. 

“When you make loving others the story of your life, there’s never a final chapter, because the legacy continues. You lend your light to one person, and he or she shines it on another, and another, and another.” What I Know For Sure – Oprah Winfrey

We must focus on ourselves, of course, but it is also a good idea to ensure that love others as well. Loving and showing kindness are two important factors in daily life, and what Oprah Winfrey shares in her book is true. If you make loving others your priority, not only do you make them feel good, but the power of love and positivity moves forward. A great quote to think about when you are struggling to feel good about yourself, as you can start to feel good about spreading love and positivity.

“Wherever you fly, you will be the best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except, when you don’t. Because sometimes you won’t” – Oh, the places you’ll go – Dr. Seuss

This is another great quote and words to consider and a nice option to give children a reminder that they can do what they want in life, but they also need to accept that sometimes things won’t always go to plan. But that’s ok. Often life doesn’t go the way we intend, but it can make us stronger or lead us down a different and perhaps better path. 

Hopefully, these quotes to come out of books have given you something to think about when it comes to words to live by.
