15 Unusual Quotes that Helped me see Things Differently

Did you ever had something that you never wanted to let go? Do you have a place that you constantly want to return to or do you have something in your mind that you can’t shut off?

Words are powerful and in order to be a writer you have to write. This post is a collection of most of the quotes that helped me remain focused as well as some unusual quotes that helped me see things differently while going on my journey.




  1. “Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about of letting go of everything that isn’t you. All of the expectations, all the beliefs and becoming who you are. “
  2. “And so, there must be in life something like a catastrophic turning point, when the world as we know it ceases to exist. A moment that transforms us into a different person from one heartbeat to the next.
  3. “Remember that every fire will burn itself out, even without your help.”
  4. “The part of us that wants to become, is fearless.”
  5. “I like flaws and feel more comfortable around people who have them. I, myself I am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.”
  6. “When people start acting like they don’t care, believe them!”
  7. You are still beautiful, a little more beautiful than ever.”
  8. “People inspire you or they drain you – pick them wisely.”
  9. “The moment you feel like you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away.
  10. “If the ocean can calm itself, so can I , we are both salt water mixed with air.”
  11. “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and intelligent execution, it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice not change, determines your destiny.”
  12. “There is nothing to prove and nothing to protect. I am who I am and that is enough.”
  13. “Wake up in the morning and find something about yourself to change for the better.”
  14. “Study while others are sleeping. Work while others are loafing. Prepare while others are playing and dream while others are wishing.”

And in the end, the sum things up, I will kindly say that : “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”

  1. Loved this quote list! My favorite ones were #6 and #8. I liked number #6 because it really shows that actions speak louder than words. If someone says something but their body language is showing the opposite, 10/10 their body language is how they actually feel about something. Body language is something we can’t really control lol. It’s like someone saying “yes” but is shaking their head “no”. I also liked #8 because you really do only have 2 times of people in your life. The people that bring you up and the people that bring you down. It’s your choice who you want to keep in your life.


  2. “Try to accept this truth, Maximilien. Most people are lazy, and will take you at your own valuation. Make sure the valuation you put on yourself is high.” Hilary Mantel, A Place of Greater Safety. One of my all-time favourites books. I used to have four pages of quotes from it on my walls.
