If you are an avid quote collector, as many continuous learners are, check out my collection of Life Quotes.

I grouped the life quotes into key categories for easy browsing.  I used the following categories for my life quotes:

  • Challenges
  • Choices and Plans
  • Day to Day
  • Fun
  • Joy and Passion
  • How To Live
  • Learning and Growth
  • Life Is …
  • Mistakes and Regrets
  • Purpose and the Meaning of Life
  • The Good Life
  • The Value of Life

I selected quotes from a variety of sources including Charles Shulz, Confucius, Emerson, Oprah, Tony Robbins, and more.  I’ll need to make another pass and find some life quotes from folks like Bruce Lee. 

While there is always the idea of work and life, and the idea of work-life balance, I think that life is pervasive, and it permeates who we are and how we show up at work.  The line is a blur and I find the happiest people are those that can express their values on the job, and drive from their life style.  The opposite is also true.

I rounded up the life quotes in a way that I think you will find to be very easy to scan and choose your favorites.  I do recommend first reading the the top 10, but then hopping around to find three that light your fire or wrinkle your brain in some way.  The best quotes hit a problem like a nail on the head.  The real beauty of life quotes though is that they take on meaning based on the meaning you give them.  It’s like when three people hear the same song, all have a different take away.  Quotes are like that.

So please stop by, check out my Life Quotes collection, and share with me your favorite life quotes.  I’m always looking to fill my toolkit for life, and life really is better with the right words.
