Famous people are famous for many reasons and one of the biggest reasons is the things they say. Some of these quotes are capable of leaving a mark on us as these famous personalities have learned and speak with their experiences. And it takes a lot to reach the level they have reached so we can tell that they are saying what they are saying with all seriousness.

Unfortunately, not everyone understands all the time what most of these personalities mean by their quotes. Some of them might seem simple but they have a really deep meaning. You need a clear mind to understand such quotes. This is very hard to do nowadays because of the busy lifestyle.

Well, I’m here to help you with not only understanding the quotes but also selecting the best and most inspiring ones. Listed below are quotes by some famous personalities that can teach us a lot about life.

“I refuse to accept other people’s ideas of happiness for me. As if there’s a one size fits all standard for happiness”

Kanye West

This is one of my favorite quotes by Yeezy because it makes you understand the meaning of happiness. Ye wants to tell us that nobody can decide what makes another person happy. The only definition of happiness is the one described by you for yourself in reference to you.

In simple words, you and only you can decide what makes you happy and no one else has the right to do it for you. The only way to be happy is to do something for yourself that you know will make you feel happy.

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing”


The great Aristotle wants to say that criticism is a part of life. If you don’t like criticism, you must take it in a positive way and try to improve yourself. The harsh truth is that people are going to criticize you and your work no matter what because that’s how people are.

Even if you are extremely good at what you do, there will be some people who will try to criticize your work because everyone’s way of looking at things is different. So, you just need to focus on your goal without worrying about criticism as somehow it also helps us in improving ourselves if taken in a positive way.

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go”

T.S. Eliot

I’m a huge fan of poems and poets and this quote from one of the most amazing poets says a lot while saying so less. The quote reflects the immensely creative mind of Eliot and meaning is just life-changing.

T.S. Eliot wants to say that taking the risk of exceeding your limits will build the potential of growing your limits. And the person who will exceed these limits will be able to define the maximum limit of performing a task.

This quote inspires us to always go the distance in order to achieve excellence. I would recommend checking out more of this amazing poet’s quotes and poems.

“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs”

Dhirubhai Ambani

It’s no surprise that one of the richest Indian businessmen in history was such a visionary. Late Mr. Ambani wanted to pass a message with the help of this quote. This quote implies that anyone can be a billionaire. You just need the right goal and the right path to reach that goal.

And if you won’t choose a goal for yourself, you might just end up working for someone who has a goal in life. So, it’s better to have a goal for yourself rather than helping someone else in reaching theirs.

“Saying it is impossible to live without failing at something is impossible. Unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default”

J.K. Rowling
JK Rowling Harry Potter

God bless Rowling for creating one of the most lovable series ever (of course, I’m talking about ‘Harry Potter’). It’s clear by her writing that she’s an extremely creative person and an amazing writer. Hence, it’s no surprise that she has a lot of inspiring quotes.

Here, she wants to say that failure is a part of life and a person learns from his/her failures. And if you will be extra careful about not taking risks as a result of your fear for failures, it’s possible that you might have failed at exploring life.

“Behind every successful person lies a pack of haters”


An amazing quote by one of the most gifted artists ever. The reason why Eminem is called the G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time) is clear by this quote. These kinds of quotes don’t just come to your mind, you have to experience some challenging things in life. And that was exactly the case for this man.

Eminem wants to say that haters play an important role in the journey to success. This implies that if you have haters, you are going on the right track because either they are jealous of you or you took a stand for something that isn’t right according to them. You’ll have to think about this one. It’s astonishing how Eminem can say so less but mean so much.


There are many quotes that can inspire and motivate us, however, these are the ones that I love. These quotes can have a really positive effect on your mind and ultimately on your life. I’m sharing them in the good hope of helping people with the ultimate power of inspiration.
