My dream is to inspire and energize you for life through good sayings.

Your dreams will inspire you and create the energy to pursue your goals with a passion and determination.

The inspiration to achieve your dreams will put the fuel into your tank and energize you into action. Burn the vision of your dreams into your thoughts until that vision becomes crystal clear of what you want to accomplish. From that vision create a plan of action that will keep you moving in the direction of your goals and objectives.

Your dreams will inspire and energize you . . . . to make your goals a reality. Believe it; work at it, stay the course and your dreams will be within your grasp.

I must bear these in my mind all time because when people bring out the very worst in me, you have no idea what I am capable of. Everyone has a devil inside but you will never know until it comes out. When it does, you have lost to your own devil. I rarely hate people but when I do, you have no idea how much I hate that people. Why am I that extreme? The worst thing that could happen to my life is like at the end of some South Korean action movies line “Why we have to end up like this?”

I am a quotes man and quotes is one of my best friends, quotes talk to me when I feel down! 🙂 When I fail or disappointed in somethings these sayings come to my mind “Remember that failure and disappointment are a part of life.” ”When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.” I am a believer in life-long learning. Love of learning is the guide of life. People are born with blindness so we need good books and teachers to guide our way. Learning and considering can help human become true human. This topic will help you better understand quotes and how to apply them in your life.

When I read Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s quote about “Knowing is not enough. We must apply.” I am not bragging or anything, his quote is really match up with what I used to say “knowing 1000 good sayings is not the point, the point is keep that in mind and apply them in your life!”

I am a good many things, but a businessman I am not I mean I am not good at making money. It’s like a pain in the ass. The highest views of my blog is about 400 views per day and I want to make my money from my blog and I don’t know how! The people around me have everything, my brother and some of my friends make a lot money. How about me? I just save up my money every day to take my monthly trip. When I thought about it, this idea came to my mind “You can win life by all means..Yes..
If you simply avoid two things…
1. Comparing – with others
2. Expecting – from other! I felt much better after this quote talked to me! 🙂 

Words to live by: Be tough with the tough and gentle with the gentle.

That’s my motto.

I leaned this sentence in 2010 “Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! ” it is like wake me up from a nightmare, makes me enjoy my old life! 

I was a broken heart man who needs mending.  Recently I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends. These things made me started to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain.

let's inspire

Do you like to be inspired? How about sharing what has inspired you with others?

In this article, I am going to introduce to you some powerful ideas which help you understand quotes. In my topic here you will see many quotations. You can say I am crazy about them or you can say it is boring here to see too many quotes and sayings. But I’ll tell you what; I think I can have a happy life because of these words. Many people have a difficult time understanding some quotes. How can I learn and understand the meaning of quotes better? “Quotations help us remember the simple yet profound truths that give life perspective and meaning. When it comes to life’s most important lessons, we can all use gentle reminders.” This is a gentle and heartfelt guide to the fundamentals of living a life rich in joy and contribution. The question is how we can relate it on our daily life? I want you to just relax. Feel the quotes.


One of my greatest enthusiasms is quotations.

I wish to talk to you about this because it has been an important part of my life, and it helped make me the person today. Collecting stamp is a famous hobby as well as an easy activity. Some people are considering the habit of collecting stamps but for me, collecting quotations have been my hobby since I was in high school. I am always amazed and impress by the wit of the writers and speakers who are able to express with clarity in words the truth about the different aspects of life. This is probably the most important rule in the world: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”  So let’s obey the Golden Rule, and give unto others what we would have others give unto us, How? When? Where? The answer is: All the time, everywhere.

My favorite flower is lilac! In spring, the lilac reaches full bloom.  

Who can tell me what the lilac signifies?

 Memories of youth.  My favorite quote about youth: Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I mean make memorable achievements and at the same time make a meaningful contributions to the world.  My favorite quote from my western friend “Living the inspired life involves appreciating the little things in life, like stopping what you were doing to smell a pretty flower or noticing the beautiful blue sky. It’s taking time to show the people in your life that you love them. It’s choosing to take risks and moving forward without fear. It’s the way to live – full of freedom and joy.”

My quote  “I don’t care about other people business as long as they keep to themselves and don’t spit on my life or step on my family’s shoe. If they do, it gonna be my business I have to take care of.” Dy Dara 25.08.2011 How to understand good sayings and apply them in your life?Do you have favorite quotes that you depend upon in a crisis, special quotes that motivate you to move forward, quotes that you are teaching your children? When I encounter difficulties in my life I always think of this special phrase “No matter how hard it is that time will pass.” In others words, it is not the end of the world. “Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” I need to be reminded daily to guard my heart because I’m so easily distracted by people, places and things so this message really speaks to me. Sometimes I have a bad temper, do you want to know “How can I hold it?” Thanks to quotes “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow” I always think of my parents and I don’t want to cause them any grief, so it makes me have the courage to walk away from unnecessary conflict. ”When anger rises think of the consequences.” We need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.  Be patient and tough; some day this pain will be useful to you.Be patient. Because one moment of impatience can ruin a whole life.

I don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone! When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Positive thinking and forgiveness are the most important ingredient in the formula of happiness.

I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of the rest of your life more than anything else. The more mercy you have, the less hatred you have. When you’ve done something wrong you can forgive yourself, why you can’t forgive others? You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go. It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction. You must break free. Mahatma Gandhi “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” Don’t let your today’s decision become your tomorrow’s regret!

I have learned a lot wise words in my life. These words are really useful for me. I think I can have a happy life and true contentment in life because of these words. If you can apply them in your life, it will be very useful for you, too.
Some people saw my words and said to me, “You are a wise man!” No I am not! “Wise men may not be learned; learned men may not be wise”. Wise man is a person who uses the mind creatively and he makes the right decision. I think I’ve earned myself a nickname for my personality “Fool-Wise Man” the half fool and the half wise man. Hahaha, it’s actually kind of funny and contradictory what they mean. Because of that way I can get through everything.

A wise man doesn’t make the mistake at all Why? Because the wise man knows how to observe. Wise people think first before they act while there are some smart people are really dumb, it’s because they know about something but just can’t put it to proper use. For example, you are in a trouble A smart man knows how to resolve and escape on that problem, while the wise man will not get into that trouble in the first place, because a wise man knows how to be not involve in that kind of problem.

Too much of something is bad. Hence, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Like most things, moderation is the key. Finding the balance is very important for me. I must bear this in mind at all times because I have an addictive personality.
If I came across anything in my reading that I wished to remember I would write it down on paper, in my phone, or on my laptop.

Philosophy has always been regarded as a means of discovering the secret of happiness. Sometimes people just don’t understand… How to understand quotes? “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Albert Einstein “Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ~ Confucius The difference makes the world beautiful.” What do you understand by that?  It means that everyone is unique in his/her own way and don’t look down on someone who is different from you. Personality is the traits that make you an individual. Character is an universal attribute. Like honesty or respect. You are born with personality but develop character. Let’s try another quote: “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Helen Keller A note of inspiration and encouragement to help some people keep striving towards their goals, hopes and dreams. Basically it means that when something good in your life finishes you spend so long regretting its loss that you ignore other chances for happiness. It means do not waste time on negatives, because you might miss positives while you are sad. Everyone cannot succeed in everything they do, but just keep trying. Failing does not mean the end of everything. You should keep yourself-belief, find out your weak point and improve it. Failing to achieve is not a failure, but losing your hope and motivation is a true failure. https://dydara.wordpress.com/2011/05/09/when-one-door-of-happiness-closes-another-opens/  Read it carefully and visualized the situation. Read it again and again and try to figure out what the writers want to say. And use a dictionary if you need it, because some words these days mean different in the past days. Look at the quote and study it and think about it. Be understanding person Being understanding means listening to other people problems and taking in all of the information and think of how you would feel in their situation and also trying to help them if they want help. It Depend on our attitude, our way of understanding things and people and the way we react to them. An understanding person is someone who understands others and doesn’t judge them in any way, gives a person time alone when he or she needs it, doesn’t insult someone who’s just been hurt or stepped on, comforts others while giving them good advice that’s an understanding person to me. Put yourself in their situation and ask yourself a question, “if I were them, would I like that?” Then you will understand… Be open minded personOpen your heart to it. Let it in. Don’t hold strong opinions about things you don’t understand. Having an open mind consists of having patience and acceptance of all views no matter how dissimilar to your own that they may be. To understand negative thinking person, I have to think from the negative thinking person perspective.

I’ve learned to be self-aware, and that changed a lot of perceptions about myself, other people and life. I spent many long years of my life trying to understand how to become aware. I used to react with reflection, wonder why people act the way they Do? and rationalizing my every action.

If it’s just perception then why does it matter? Perception is how we personally view things; it’s our version of reality. When we don’t know someone personally, our perception is based on the signals we pick up from their words, body language, expressions, eye contact, etc. We also sense their degree of self-confidence and it influences our perception. Have you ever said: “I don’t know why, but I just don’t trust that person”? See, your mind didn’t have a logical reason for your lack of trust, but you still didn’t trust them. It’s because your perception was being influenced on a subconscious level. Perception may not be absolute reality, but it is your reality and that’s all that matters in a situation like this. You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.  ~Clay P. Bedford The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think—rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men. “No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it.” Ignorance is a bliss” But sometimes we have to think about their criticism. One good sentence cannot apply to all situations, but most of them do. If you can understand what I mean here and keep that in mind you will become a happy person. It works wonders for me. Hope it helps you like it has helped me. 😉 I want you to be as happy as I am.

No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it. I just realized what this sentence mean. When we haven’t been in the situation, we don’t know what this sentence is all about. I understand this when my parents and loved one’s words can hurt my feeling because I attach too much important to their words and I love them with all my heart. I allow them to hurt my feeling and I deserve that.

Experience all that life has to offer! 🙂 😦

Life is a great teacher. Something you only learn by experience in life and no book can teach you that. “Life happens when you’re busy making other plans” I came across this in my reading and I wrote it down in my book maybe about 4 years ago, a few months ago I read it again and I just understood it!

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Confucius

I am not bragging or anything, some ideas I used to think of, very similar to what D.H Lawrence said about 100 year ago.

“But better die than live mechanically a life that is a repetition of repetitions.”

                                                                                 I live an alternative lifestyle.

Quotes can be easily figured out if the concept behind their origin is understood.

I think someone said this when he or she was having a broken heart “Love is like heaven but hurts like hell.” I had the most incredible time with my loved one. I really had. So I can understand this saying. Every time I am with my lover, in that moment it was as if we became one person. A great relationship is when you feel completely at home with another person. You can talk to them about anything and you don’t need to always be kissing them to feel happy. They bring out the best in you, and make you a better person. If you have never been in true love, you wouldn’t understand “Love is like heaven.” If you don’t have the experience of a broken heart, you wouldn’t understand this sentence “hurts like hell.”

My all time favorite quotes!

 I have many good sayings that I keep in my mind this is one of them. “Good things happen to a good person. So you guys should start do something good for your people around you. To do good deeds for people around me is my real ♥pleasure! 😉 “If you’re looking for friends when you need them…it’s too late.” — Mark Twain I think this quote refers to someone must have good connection with people first before you ask any favors from them.

Just let bygones be bygones used to tell someone they should forget about unpleasant things that happened in the past, and especially to forgive and forget something bad that someone has done to them: Forget about the argument you had, just let bygones be bygones and be friends again.

“When you are happy, you live a day. When you are not, you still live one day. Why don’t we make that day a happy day!” You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful.  “In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.”

“Time heals all pain.”

 A great man once said “life is hard. It’s even harder…if you’re stupid”. So it’s important indeed to keep your head chill buddy, you’re not that stupid.

Great minds talk about ideas; small minds talk about people, once said Eleanor Roosevelt I am a happy man in a happy world. Everything is depending on the way you think of it, If I think I am the one of the happiest men on earth, I am. I know it’s hard to have people think like we do. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way, you just go with the flow! 😀 Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. Although I am a happy man I still have some problems. I think everybody has a 100 problems. I don’t know that, like you are not supposed to solve them all, because the simple truth of it, it is not a problem if you think it is a problem it makes you have a problem.  

I spent almost half year to work in poor communities. I was so humbled to be a driver and put my all into it but what I got was very disappointed at my old job. I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy who views everything as a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot from my western friends at that place. I’ve spent almost 4 years to share good sayings and provided entertainment on Facebook, I want to sh

ow people the beauty of life and I want to cherish my good memories. I got so disappointed because some people think that I am show off and annoying on Facebook. One side of me wants to stop sharing funny pictures and good sayings. But another side says “Why should I give a damn about that low life people think.” I cannot please the world, in other words, I cannot satisfy everyone.

Do you understand everything you read?

Treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different from them. My Motivation Quotes & Sayings “Dare to dream” Motivation is the driving force by which humans achieve their goals. Motivation is said to be intrinsic or extrinsic. “It’s easy to stand with the crowd. It takes courage to stand alone.” “The people may be made to follow a course of action, but they may not be made to understand it.”

One sweet phrase can keep people warm for the whole winter. 🙂

Thoughtless words can wound as deeply as a sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.

time decides 
“The best revenge is success.”

My new way of making good sayings! 😀

My new way of making good sayings! 😀

Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow. But not share sorrow all the time. I never see anybody have a perfect life. Don’t make life difficult. Keep it simple. All these are for reading then it will make sense when it practically comes to life.

My favorite Khmer sayings: រឹង សូមអោយ រឹងប៉ឹង មិនមែន រឹងរូស បើ ទន់ សូមអោយ ទន់ភ្លន់ មិនមែន ទន់ជ្រាយ។ អស់កម្លាំងចិត្ដ នាំអោយអស់សង្ឃឹម នាំអោយអស់ភាពតស៊ូ!!!

Accept, forgive, and forget. I just discovered these three words are really important to solve most problems and very good lesson for life. For example: If the unpleasant people did something to upset you, you have to accept that “That kind of people are just like that.” And walk away from them. You should forgive the bad things that they did to you and forget about that things. “Let bygones be b

ygones”I don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone!. When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of the rest of your life more than anything else.”You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go. It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction. You must break free.”

‘I really like my life. I’ve arranged my life so that I can do what I want.’ ‘Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.’ I’m just here and I’m doing the best I can. If you don’t understand that, then what can I do? Paul Prudhomme quotes In my experience, it helps. It really does. I hope it helps you like it has helped me. Let good sayings, be our guide. Sometimes I make a decision by looking at the quotes. I share everything I know about how to understand quotes. If you have any ideas regarding this topic, or good sayings, please leave a comment, thank you !

I was a sad man for a few years because of one thing. No matter what I did, I was not happy. And when I’ve started to enjoy my old life I feel I am happier than before. I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends.These things made me started to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain. If you get only happiness then you don’t feel its value, do you? It’s applicable to the word money as well.
Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I don’t want to look back on my life and think, “I wish I did that.” Or “My precious youth is gone I’m all old.”
“If you have a dream, don’t wait. Act. One of life’s little rules. Got it memorized?”
– Axel (Kingdom Hearts II)
Thanks for being there with me!!! :)
