QuotesThe correct term for a quotation reads: "A quote is a repetition of said or written opinion." In other words, a quote is a repetition of something that already exists; this could be a movie, play, book, etc. We use quotes because it has some significance for us. It affects us in a certain way and gives meaning to life, love and so on.

Quotes and understanding them


Quote by Soeren KierkegaardQuotes like much else can have different meanings. A simple quote can mean something completely different than what you first assumed. How to interpret the quote depends on the person himself, most of them are thankfully straightforward and understandable for all. The slightly more "cryptic" of quotations can create some headaches, one can get several different meanings out of a quote. Let us take one that may well create some confusion. As an example, I will use one of Søren Kierkeggards quotes which reads: "Life must be understood backwards but must be lived forwards" Picture of Søren Kierkeggard

Let’s boil it down so everyone can follow. This quotes means that you have to live your life as it happens and not plan it in advance. In other famous words Carpe Diem (seize the moment). Live your life one day at a time, live it great and do not miss any opportunities or you will regret it later.

Many people read several quotes every day; they do it for a reason, because they want to improve their lives. Many quotes are incredible inspiring when it comes to how to live, how to act and treat others. Various studies show that people who read a minimum one quote every day, feel better and it has an effect of minimizing stress. I urge all to read quotes once in a while.
