25 Simple Yet Profound Thoughts That Will Change The Way You Think Forever

First of all, these aren’t quotes. They could be, and certainly somebody articulated each of the following thoughts before the rest of us. But that is not the point of this list. The point here is to consider the profundity of each statement. Each statement will give you reason to reflect on your own motivations and actions. We know, this isn’t exactly a relaxing read right? Well, it can be. Maybe it will motivate you to change something or to move forward in a more positive direction. Who said these lists couldn’t touch on serious topics? Either way, you’ve probably already heard many of these. Maybe it will only be a small reminder. Or maybe it will be the first time. Maybe you will think of someone who needs to read this list. Words of wisdom never get old. Just as your father, pastor, teacher, or other authority figure left an impression on you with their words, you can never underestimate the power of a simple phrase to shape the rest of your life. Words are powerful. They build up and then tear down far more subversively than any weapon of violence can. These are 25 simple yet profound thoughts that will change the way you think forever.
