Words of Wisdom // Inspiring Words from Those Who’ve Lived
Words of wisdom are insights and encouragement from people and their experiences about life. They offer us knowledge, life lessons and the consequences of our life choices. Upon reflection, words of wisdom can guide you in the right direction, simplify everyday life and/or provide motivation.
It’s common to believe we get wiser with age. We encourage you to take time and ask your favorite elderly loved ones or aging parents if they have any words of wisdom they’d like to share. This is a great way to spend time together. Who knows; they might be a fountain of wisdom or have some additional secrets to living a longer, happier, healthier life!
Until then, here are a few of our favorite words of wisdom from those who have lived and learned. We hope they inspire you.
- Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
- Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace of mind.
- Get outside and travel. Miracles are around every corner!
- Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will. Stay in touch.
- You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
- Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
- However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
- Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
- Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
- When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
- Over prepare, then go with the flow.
- Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
- Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

- Actions speak louder than words. Don’t just say you’ll do something; actually follow through.
- It takes energy, diligence & generosity to be unfailingly lighthearted.
- Have a pet. Life gets lonely sometimes. Pets are reminders of how we’re all living things.
- Happiness & a positive attitude are contagious
- “If you don’t like something, CHANGE IT. If you can’t change it, CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE. Don’t complain” Maya Angelou
- You must evolve. Everything in the universe progresses and changes with time, and anything which remains stagnant dies out.
