Seven English quotes

Today I’d like to talk about English quotes. You know life is really hard, especially when we fail in our duties, work and relationships with others. It seems that failure tends to be more public than success. We fret about it at times, for me, most of the time. However, we’ve already known that no great success was ever achieved without failure. Therefore, I’d like to share seven quotes that inspire me to try new challenge without hesitating to fail.

1. “If there is a will, there is a way.”

“If there is a will, there is a way.”

– Proverb –

First is “If there is a will, there is a way.”

It’s one of the most famous proverbs. So I think you guys already know this one. In my understanding, it means when we decided to achieve something, we would succeed. No matter how steep a mountain is, we could create a road.

2. “I am not concerned that you have fallen. I am concerned that you arise.”

“I am not concerned that you have fallen. I am concerned that you arise.”

– Abraham Lincoln –

Second is here, “I am not concerned that you have fallen. I am concerned that you arise.”

Actually, this is my most liked words and one of the quotes from Abraham Lincoln. He is well-known as one of the greatest presidents in the US. When I got to know this, I had had fallen. Despite of spending over three years, 1,500 hours for studying English, my skill still hadn’t improved at all. Thanks to this quote, I could arise and advance again.

3. “Love the life you live. Live the life you love.”

Love the life you live. Live the life you love.”

– Bob Marley –

The third one is “Love the life you live, Live the life you love.” from Bob Marley who is the most famous reggae musician.

It’s simple, but it’s really meaningful. In spite of being exposed risks to be killed by his hostile, he achieved the nation’s peace in his country, Jamaica through music.

We should live the way we want with efforts by ourselves. Bob tells us how important it is.

4. “Failure is only the opportunity more intelligently to begin again. There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail.”

“Failure is only the opportunity more intelligently to begin again. There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail.”

– Henry Ford –

Next is somewhat long. “Failure is only the opportunity more intelligently to begin again. There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail.” from Henry Ford who is known as a “foster of cars”.

Generally the Japanese tend to be afraid to fail too much. We feel ashamed when we fail. But he tells me not to be afraid, if you did your best, you can try again and again until you succeed.

5. ”Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.

Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.

– Coco Chanel –

The fifth is “Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” from Coco Chanel, one of the most famous designers in the world.

I guess ladies are familiar with her brand. She changed old practice like “women can not do as men”. I guess in the process of this fight, she struggled and failed many times. However, she learned from failure as a process of success. So it’s quite persuasive. That’s why, she is still a symbol of independent women I think. Indeed, we, I mean men, can learn how to behave after we fail.

6. ”Never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. Never give up.”

”Never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. Never give up.”

– Arthur Boorman –

The sixth is “Never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. Never give up.”

Actually I’m a Yogi. When I surfed Youtube videos related to Yoga, I found this one. It’s a quote from an American guy who was once a paratrooper in the Gulf war and he was injured by too many jumps. He became disabled and he accepted that as a fact. He gave up to walk by himself again. But it did not hold true for long. Since he started Yoga, he began doing his best. He failed down countless times, but he arose each time. He never gave up this time. Eventually he accomplished. 

I know this may not happen to everyone. But we may be one of them with making efforts. He proved how important it is not to give up. It’s so impressive for me.

7. “When you face adversity, your true nature is tested.”

“When you face adversity, your true nature is tested.”

– English seeker –

Lastly, “When you face adversity, your nature is tested.”

Can you guess whose quote it is? To tell the truth, it’s mine. Most likely, you already know it is true. If we were beaten by reality and then we stopped struggling, we couldn’t advance anymore. Of course, I’m an ordinary person. That’s why I should keep on trying even if I would fail many times. That’s life, isn’t it?

“Rainy days never stay.”

Anyway, I know we have our individual powerful phrases. I will mention it again, life is really hard. However, we also know ”Rainy days never stay.”

It’s up to me how feel when I see a rainbow. I know I would fail many times from now on. But I swear to you guys, I will continue to make efforts. I will do what I can do.

Learning English is a long journey. Sometimes I get really exhausted. But I’ve already known how interesting it is.

That’s why, I am learning English.
