There is nothing quite like good, powerful quotes. In fact, quotes will probably stay with your more than you think. They have definitely been known to change lives. Words are powerful, just ask any child. It seems that the earlier you hear something, the more defining that phrase will be in your life. But it’s never too late for a quote to change things. Like they say, the pen is more powerful than the sword. It’s a quote about quotes! It’s a meta-quote! Enough of the silliness. These quotes are some of the greatest lines ever uttered (okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration).
They were spoken by soldiers, generals, politicians, teachers, and just average workers. They are quotes that carry so many layers of profundity and meaning that you’ll probably have to re-read them several times just to get the full meaning. But don’t worry, the best quotes do that. They stick with you and make you think about things. They change you, hopefully in a good way. It used to be that learning and remembering quotes was one of the few ways for people to be educated. These days, we have the internet…for better or for worse. These are 25 powerful quotes that will send chills down your spine!
