Sometimes in our short lifetime, it is wise to stop and take a deep breath; to check out something deeper, to gain perspective, to allow deep and meaningful thoughts and sayings to enter our subconscious. What matters in life is not shallow thinking but what reveals hidden truths, or those that calm you, or those that provide intellectual stimulation.
Within each of us is that inner strength to conquer challenges, or to overcome adversity. All of these deep short quotes on life, challenges, obstacles, and concerns provide just that stimuli that you might need to go further into exploring your own life and its new paths.
We hope that these short, broad, meaningful and profound quotations will become your daily morning mind challenging and motivational launch for an inspired day. Any day can be productive by making a personal choice and by using a stimulating saying to ignite the mind. We invite you to come back every morning to get your "short deep quote" nourishment for the day.

The concept of change does not rest external to the being but is predicated on the inner self recognizing the need to act. Rory R. Cuphist

Values are the building blocks of civilization given to shame and destroy the follies of foolish humans. Freddy J. W. Parkes
In order for a civilization to move forward, indeed, even to survive, means that a solid core of beneficial and trustworthy values must exist amidst the evil that is inherent in all of mankind. Make no mistake, societies will fall and eventually fade away completely without solid and honest and moral values just as did the Roman empire in the ancient world.

Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth. Ludwig Börne
If a man who cannot count finds a four-leaf clover, is he lucky? Stanislaw J. Lec
We are all but recent leaves on the same old tree of life and if this life has adapted itself to new functions and conditions, it uses the same old basic principles over and over again. There is no real difference between the grass and the man who mows it. Albert Szent-Györgyi
