Motivational quotes for Students   

If we are to pick one target group that benefits most from motivational quotes it definitely has to be: students. As a student you are living through a phase that shapes your future. You are still tied up in a mixture of energy, positivity and perhaps a little bit of stress. During that awesome student life, you are working towards your future and there are a lot of expectations on you. You need to be successful, get a good job, a nice partner, look good on social media, etc. So, you will definitely need these educational quotes for students. Think of a day when you are soaked in self-doubt after a failure and you come across these words – “Your limitation—it’s only your imagination”. They would get rid of all the negative emotions and take the challenge head on. Mark Twain’s quote “The man who does not read books has no advantage over the one who cannot read them” is for those students who often take life for granted. Keep going tiger, wake up (at 10am as a student) with these Instagram quotes.

Inspirational Quotes for Work  

During our pre-Covid times, a time not too long ago, most organizations had inspirational quotes framed on their corporate walls. These, meant to inspire employees every day. Abraham Lincoln’s quote “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” is a good example. It is a lesson for all those who like waiting for success to knock their doors and do not chase it. Martin Luther King, Jr beautifully put it about people who are apprehensive about taking the first step when he said “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

That achieving success is all in the mind and should not depend on external factors has been beautifully summarized by Henry Ford who said “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” Chasing success at the cost of comprising your ideals and values is dangerous and the best quote on this doesn’t come from a philosopher but a man of science. Albert Einstein said “Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.”   

Inspirational Quotes for Women

Human society is patriarchal and while we have come a long way and women are increasingly getting into roles once reserved for men only, they still face discrimination or sexism. Education had been denied to women for centuries and continues to be so in certain parts of the world. Brigham Young, the American religious leader beautifully summarized society’s gain in educating women when he said “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”

Yulia Tymoshenko, who went on to become the first woman to be appointed Prime Minister of Ukraine said “Whenever you see a successful woman, look out for three men who are going out of their way to try to block her.” Women in the corporate world or world of politics can probably immediately relate to this and also take inspiration from this. If she could do it? Why can’t you! Go get m!

Inspirational Quotes for Kids  

You can’t start early enough. There are times when kids are down in their spirits and sharing inspirational quotes helps them break out of this. Expectations on children, in a much more competitive world, are higher than ever. The Japanese saying “Fall seven times, stand up eight” can inspire them to never give up in life when they come across failure. Similarly, when they make mistakes and have regret over it Wolfgang Riebe’s quote: “No one is perfect – that’s why pencils have erasers” is a great motivator. Kids often try and imitate others to gather self-esteem and lose their own self and this is where Judy Garland quotes “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else”. I hope this inspires them to take pride in who they are as they really should!
