The race of ambitions: Since the dawn of humanity there has been a competition for survival, and by survival I mean all sorts of emotional physical and spiritual sustenance. First this race for survival was on a smaller scale, where the fight was over the land nearer to the water or the ownership of the tree laden with the most fruit or where an ape man would stab another over the beauty of a woman. But as things started magnifying, people started spreading over the globe and the overcrowding started happening in every other aspect too along with the population bloom, everything else also got zoomed and the race for survival got heavier and harsher. With lust, love, money and power involved every new born and the near death soul wanted to climb to the top of the human pyramid all along ready to even walk over someone else, if needed. From individuals to communities to nations, the war became of food, oil, drugs, armament and financial influx. Dreams got bigger and bigger, ambitions got higher and higher and passions started exceeding the optimum, but the process of achieving them got harsher and tougher. Requirement of a time tested approach: The game then turned from the one of hard work to one of of ‘smart work’. And learning from the experience of others and saving yourself the grace of ending up where some other foolish soul had ended up before you, became a part and parcel of this smart work. At the time of a smaller population the competition of rising up, was easier and name and fame were just the shot of an amateur uniqueness where as now, in the world of fast pace, uniqueness is abundant and genius is on the road. So, now what matters and what makes one stand out in his time is a time tested approach towards his goal.
These Quotes Portray Your Heroes!
The want and desire woven in human skeleton is what makes us humans. You might not know where life will take you, but you always have it in some part of you, that that place must be more beautiful and closer to your ambition than your present state. I know this, because I’m also human. As cynical as this truth may sound it is fortunately or unfortunately, transfixed in our very existence and has since always stimulated the race of human mind’s achievements and has made up for their social system. Ambition is natural and hence the absolute want for life to change from ditches to palaces and from ordinary to extraordinary is a part and parcel of being homo sapiens. Moments of absolute failure sparked up by the shadows of a hopefully better future are not a rare happening. A convenient Guide: Money, ownership, power, success and fame are as natural to be wanted as the transience of life and hence a pathway to climb higher is very much in demand these days. But owing to the narrowness of time and space one of the easiest ways to seek guidance in a condensed and easy to absorb form is to listen to the sayings of people whose life’s are exemplified and whose names have gone down in the pages of human legacy.
It is human to want to relate and seek guidance but what better way is there to do so than seeking It from someone whose ways are talked of, taught of and exemplified. Extraordinary people, extraordinary words: Glory and fame do not come to all, there has to be some extraordinary reason, some stand out factor, some out of the way step, that catches the eye of human history and makes the heads of historians and writers turn. All have had the bitter soup of life down their throats, but while some gagged it out some others swallowed it and made the best of it and such are the people whose tongues uttered wiser philosophy than millions of weaklings. These people are known widely for their extraordinary actions and their words are jotted down in journals and kept in archives all around the world for people to take inspiration from and learn. And learning happens best when you can relate. The feeling of being at home: It always happens in the ascending order. Now famous were once unknown too and hence a common man can easily relate his state of affairs and get inspired. Reading relatable quotes lifts the burden of solitude from ones heart. It is because it is human nature to want to believe that they can do something against the odds and inspirational quotes uttered from the tongues of people who did exactly that, are a necessary reassurance and tend to strengthen a person’s insides and provide him with self-confidence.
They are Timeless
Initially perhaps these quotes uttered in odd circumstances and rostrum speeches might not mean much to you and you might think of them as fairytales and tales of valour from another time and another era altogether. You might look at them as words outdated and not applicable but one concrete truth is, that trials and tribulations have been bringing the same challenges to people as they used to do from day one and hence allow each and every person to relate and even hold ideals in another soul that they think has faced these trials in better ways than them. So this proves that it is evident that all sayings quoted by extraordinary men are a legacy of human history. A source of motivation: The motivation and clarity of mind and soul at finding your direction out via someone else’s experience and not having to go through it yourself and having to face the entire trial and error process is definitely a comfort, allowing the words based on solid experiences and uttered from the tongues of a famous being to act as a positive stimulus. The words of famous personalities aim to teach, motivate, relate and encourage other people, providing them with self-confidence and self-awareness that they lack, because the people who have uttered them are not ordinary in any sense. Everyone at some difficult time in their lives has to go through trials and tribulations and get dragged along with the fast moving pace of human marathon. In these moments of puzzlement and confusion a few words of encouragement that have stood universal tests can seriously help to lift at least a little burden.
