We attribute some of the greatest quotes and work to their authors. Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Plath, they've all got a place in the hall-of-fame of profundity. Here are the quotes you see or hear that don't have an author...or the author doesn't want to have the credit. There's something beautiful in that.
Artists who don't sign their work, writers who don't attribute their quotes and people who just don't care for the limelight are still capable of amazing work. Take it from these quotes below.
There are so many "Yolo" quotes, but this one from an unknown author is a bit more vivid. It doesn't matter what hits us, we have to be able to continue, like a fire that won't go out.
People experience pain on a daily basis, and that's why I think this quote is so profound. Even if life is painful, we can still make the best of it. It's the suffering that we have control over, pain is just a part of the ether.
The quotes that really resonate are the ones that succinctly say what we're thinking, and this one is no different. There are two sides to every story and love is like flipping a coin...sometimes you're on the winning end and others the losing one.
This one blew my mind. Knowledge, or the pursuit of it is often what people care about the most. Wisdom is like a back-burner thing for old people. But this quote flips that to what life really should be about. As we grow older we learn that we shouldn't sweat the small stuff. It's a constant struggle to finding out what actually matters, and wisdom takes care of that.
This speaks volumes. Ever been in a situation where the people you love don't stick up for you? It can tear you apart. When your friends take someone else's side we shouldn't blame the other side...we should blame our friends. When people don't take action it's worse than those who wrong us. I wonder who contributed this to the world?
I guess that's the curse of dealing with unknown authors...we can't thank them.
