Explore. Dream. Discover!

motivational picture quote
"Twenty years from now; you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER."

Ships were not made to remain in the safe harbor; they were made to sail, to cross the wide, vast seas and oceans.

Imagine if ships didn't leave their safe zone because they were afraid to sink, or because they didn't want to bother and cross the oceans.
The world will not be the same, trade will be dead, and a lot more damage will be done.

It might sound from the above as if ships were a living creatures, they're not, and yet still they have to leave the safety of the harbor in order to function, and to contribute to the world.

Same goes to you, you need to get out of your comfort zone, you need to apply Nike's motto "just do it!" , try and learn new things, build stuff, explore, discover, dream and make your dreams come true, work hard and smart.
You get the idea!

George Bernard Shaw: The Love Of Food

George Bernard Shaw Quote There is no love sincerer than the love of food

"There is no sincerer love than the love of food"

So true, there is no love sincerer or stronger than the love of food.
God bless the foodies, and God bless food lovers; we all love them.

There is so much love in food, everyone has their "favorite dish", everyone loves the taste of good delicious food, everyone loves the feeling of being full after being hungry, everyone, probably most people, love the gatherings around food.

So practically, you love food, and food kind of loves you!

Speaking of which:

We found this t-shirt that is designed for food lovers, but we think that it's kind of cute, with this cute drooling alien on it.
It's available in multiple colors and sizes.

Treat life like a Video Game

I'm not exactly a "heavy gamer", but I do like to play games, and further more; I like to watch heavy gamers play video games!

This popped into my mind while watching a heavy gamer actually, while playing a video game at an esports event, on TV. 

I then heard someone say: "We gamers, we just keep moving on", and that inspired me to come up with this quote and the words to follow.

In a video game you start at stage 1 with a score that equals zero, yet you progress, you keep moving on forward, you collect score, you explore more from the game, you take power ups, you face enemies! you make mistakes, and you have fun!

Of course, that's not how it is for the whole game; you loose sometimes, and you have to pick up from where you left.

You might loose all the lives (chances) you've been given, and you see a "GAME OVER" sign, yet you start all over again, you learn from your mistakes, and you keep going on no matter what! 

You want to reach your goal, you want to finish the game, you want to win the game you're playing!
You even get addicted!

Treat life the same way, be addicted to life; no matter what happens keep moving forward, make mistakes, that's inevitable, but learn from them and don't repeat them, take whatever chances or opportunities (power ups) you find in your life, move on, move forward, never be afraid to start all over from scratch! Aim only to reach your goals!

Of course, it's ok to hit the "PAUSE" button when you really have to.

If you like the above quote then please share it everywhere (there are buttons here for every social network and platform).

You can follow us on our Facebook page for more inspiration and motivation.
Make sure you also pass on our "STORE" page, you'll find links to our stores where you'll find awesome, high quality, products with awesome quotes and designs on them.

Products with the above quote is available in our store, such as this shirt:

You can find this shirt, and other products, in multiple sizes and colors here.

President Ronald Reagan Inspiring Quotes

Don't you just love President Reagan?

His era expanded all over the 1980's; it was a remarkable era for America. Mr. Reagan himself was a remarkable man himself.

Following are a collection of his best quotes that are far from politics and closer to Ronald Reagan as a human being.

We picked inspiring quotes by Ronald Reagan just for you.
So here they are:

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Trust, but verify.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we've ever known.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They're just braver five minutes longer.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

One picture is worth 1,000 denials.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

While I take inspiration from the past, like most Americans, I live for the future.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Don't be afraid to see what you see.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life.

President Ronald Reagan Quote

Mr. Reagan loves Mrs. Reagan!

And he's not too shy to admit it! here are two quotes by Mr. Reagan where he declares his love to the world:
"You are Mrs. Reagan because Mr. Reagan loves you with all his heart."
"Mad or glad, Mr. Reagan is head over heels in love with Mrs. Reagan and can't even imagine a world without her - He loves her."

President Ronald Reagan Quote about love

Finally: something funny:

Well, you can't deny that President Reagan was funny sometimes. But I'm not going to mention one of his many funny quotes; instead, I'll share this is a funny quote inspired by Mr. Reagan's campaign, specifically the "Morning in America" part.

In the "Back to the future" movie, when Michael J. Fox enters a cafe called "the 80's"; the first thing he spots is the virtual waiters; each customer has a monitor in front of them with a character from the 80's serving as a waiter (one customer had Michael Jackson as his virtual waiter).

When Michael J. Fox sits on a table, a small monitor pops up from the table with President Ronald Reagan as his virtual waiter. He starts by greeting him by saying: "Welcome to the 80's where it's always morning in America ... even in the afternoon!" and president Reagan laughs at it ... lol.

I found this quote (on a shirt) that is inspired by the above scene from Back to the future:

Ronald Reagan funny quote from back to the future

The Quote says: "I miss the 80's where it was always morning in America, even in the afternoon"!

I found another parody of this shirt that starts with "I was born in the 80's" instead of "I miss the 80's":

My Favorite Muhammad Ali Quotes - Part 5

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark."

Well there's nothing wrong in including a funny quote!
Muhammad Ali has a lot of those.
I know that our posts are focused on inspiration, motivation, encouragement, famous sayings, and uplifting.
But a smile can be uplifting as well.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain WRONG."

Again, well said!
Muhammad Ali left nothing to be said here.
Except probably that hatred isn't attached to color alone any more.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"My principles are more important than the money or my title."

As I said before; A strong man, is the man who abides by his principles no matter what.
And Muhammad Ali was one of the strongest men ever.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"My way of joking is to tell the truth. That's the funniest joke in the world."

Sadly. People just tend to hate the truth. At the same time they despise liars!

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths."

Well said again and again!
especially in our times, where people blame religions instead of blaming the followers of religions for their bad deeds.
You can't blame humanity because of a few rotten apples.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"All of us are so mixed. My great-grandfather was white."

This quote reminds me of a video that showed a group of people who were interviewed and asked about their race and ethnic roots.
And if there was any ethnic group that they hated.
A DNA test for each one of them showed a lot about their roots that they never imagined to be true.

I'd like to have such a DNA test one day.

My Favorite Muhammad Ali Quotes - Part 4

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Old age is just a record of one's whole life."

We already mentioned "age" in a previous post.
What do you think of this quote?
Did Muhammad Ali mean that we should make the best of our years so that we'll have a better life record?
Or did he just mean that age is just a number?
I'll leave that to you to figure out (you may share your thought with us).

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Friendship ... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

Well, I hear a lot that "friends can sometimes be closer than siblings".
But do you agree? 
Does true friendship still exist?

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even."

Your thoughts?

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"The man who has no imagination has no wings."

I would say; a man without imagination is like a bird without wings.
Imagination is a blessing from God. I mean, what else fuels our creativity as human beings.
By "Man" I believe he meant here a "Human".

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change."

Well said!
You can't imagine how much our societies will change (to the better of course) if we can eradicate poverty.

My Favorite Muhammad Ali Quotes - Part 3

More tribute to the soul of Muhammad Ali (a continuation of parts 1 and 2).

Muhammad Ali photo quote

 "It's the lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself."

So by faith, he meant faith in yourself ... which you should never lose no mater what!

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you."

In short; ships aren't made to anchor in a safe harbor, they're meant to sail.
so go on in your path and stop worrying about what might or might not happen.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"What keeps me going is goals."

Not having goals in life is like shooting in the dark.
You do the effort but gain nothing, or even lose.
Setting goals and achieving them can be extremely fun! You'll have that sense of achievement and fulfillment. 

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer."

Reminds me of an old saying: "If talking is worth silver, then silence is worth gold."
of course that doesn't mean that you should not express your mind; it rather means that you should say something useful or hold your tongue. 
Too much blabbering can be harmful and annoying.

Muhammad Ali photo quote

"I never thought of losing, but now that it's happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life."

And defeats should not hold us back; If you fall off your horse back, get yourself together and ride back on it.
