These quotes will keep you inspired during retirement!
Since I have retired a few years ago, I have been doing a lot more reading and writing. Of course with all of the time I have, there is more time for reflection. What's interesting is that I was never much of a writer when I was younger. But that could also be because I was not reading much. Since I have started reading a lot more my vocabulary has expanded quite dramatically.
My friend turned me on to some great motivational quotes that I love sharing. Even at my age I am finding that I continue to learn more every day. This is very exciting for me as it makes me feel like a kid.
Here are some of my favorite quotes I am reading right now:
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. Henry David Thoreau
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. Buddha
You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred. Woody Allen
Too many people, when they get old, think that they have to live by the calendar. John Glenn
The older I get, the more I realize what really matters in life.
Never allow your mind to wander untamed like a wild animal that exists on the basis of survival of the fittest. Tame your mind with consistent focus on your goals and desires.” ― Stephen Richards
I find it sad that too many do not understand themselves, or their potential. They don’t even take the time to get to know their unconsciousness. You can truly learn so much, by simply getting to know the “you” that is behind the reality of yourself. ― Lionel Suggs
You don’t need to fit into society or reform in order to make an impact. Be you, spread love, raise your vibrations – that’s what’s important.
Remember to say thank you for being alive, remember to tell people you love them while they’re still alive.
You can’t go back, so don’t look back. Focus on what really matters. What you do from this point forward is what really counts.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. Saint Basil.
