8 Most Meaningful Proverbs Everyone Should Live by

Many of us have heard over and over again those proverbs everyone should live by that are really inspiring. From each culture and religion, there are plenty of essential proverbs that speak to the depths of you as a human being and affect how you think. Sometimes proverbs can be so inspiring that they even change who you are and how you live your life. If you want to feel refreshed and inspired, take a look at some great and incredibly meaningful proverbs everyone should live by!

1. “The purpose of life is a life of purpose” – Robert Byrne

Perhaps, this is my favorite proverb, because there was a time when I didn’t understand what the purpose of my life was. I think at some point every one of us comes to that difficult question of what the purpose of life is. The answer is actually different for everybody and some people may not know it yet and that’s not bad. The basic point of this great proverb is to live your life with purpose in all your thoughts and actions, which is actually everybody’s calling, regardless of passions and talents. I have this wonderful and meaningful proverb on my wall and it really helps me through difficult times!

2. “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold” – Eph. 4:26-27

I always think of this proverb when I’m in a fight with a family member, partner or friend. While being angry is normal and even healthy, we should not be consumed by anger and it must not still be there the next day. If you are consumed by anger over a disagreement or fight, you can easily say or do something you will regret later. So calm yourself by taking a few deep breaths and try to resolve the issues without fighting. Remember you and only you are responsible for your actions so do your part to stay cool, calm and collected!

3. “A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing” – Oscar Wilde

Though I try not to be a cynic person, with all the selfishness abounding in our world it’s extremely difficult not to be cynical. I believe that there are many selfless and kind people who really make our world a better place to live in! It’s an amazing goal to see the value in those things that are not fleeting in life, such as love, faith, family, and friends!

4. “Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it ” – Confucius

Have you ever heard the saying ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’? I absolutely agree with Confucius. Beauty is everywhere we just don’t notice it at times. Every day try to see those little things, which are very beautiful. It can be lunch with your friends and interesting conversation. Sure, it’s the little thing, but it’s so beautiful!

5. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Often it’s extremely difficult to ignore negative words, especially when they are from someone you love. If it happens, the best thing to do is to tell the person that it’s a great pity that they have such opinion, and that you are going to think otherwise. Never dwell on negative words, I know it’s easier said than done, but you should try to do it!

6. “Kindness is the sunshine in which virtue grows” – Anonymous

I like this proverb because unkind people can’t have virtuous traits. Kindness comes from love, and without love, all virtuous characteristics are worthless. I believe this is a beautiful and meaningful proverb everyone should live by!

7. “Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark” – James 3:5

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. The entire verse compares the tongue to a big fire and how our words are powerful and destructive. Every time I read this proverb I always think of gossips and how they spread like a fire, consuming people who turn their ears to listen. Gossips can ruin lives, so we must avoid spreading rumors about other people, even if they’re true. It’s just unkind.

8. “The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step” – Chinese Proverb

I love this proverb because it’s really motivational in all areas of life. I think about my fitness goal and how the most difficult part about getting into exercise is just beginning and taking that first step! The first step is always the most difficult since it’s the mental battle you should overcome.

These are all of my favorite proverbs I live by. I feel really inspired and refreshed when I read them. I hope you like these beautiful proverbs and you will take them to heart! What proverbs do you live by? Please comment below and thanks for reading!
