Besides other things, healing is about the way our mind is set. One of the basics of a holistic approach towards health is that if a person wishes to get better, he or she must want it first. That is why it is necessary to have the proper motivation.

We can get internal motivation and the correct mindset from various sources. For me, personally, it was the reading and repeating of quotes. That is why I decided to support your journey to recovery and to pick out the best quotes that will strengthen your convictions and your desire to get better.

Love and Life Quotes

Power of Love

I will probably be right in saying that most of us don’t know the meaning of our lives. And that is actually quite logical, since nobody has objectively told us why we are here and where we come from.

We can look for the meaning of life in many places, and it can’t be said that this is good or this is bad. I used to fix my attention on the world around me. But this led me away from discovering myself and, more or less, also from being able to love. This attitude was definitely one of the causes for my diseases.

The more I started to turn my attention towards my heart, the more I felt that the real sense and essence of life is love. Love can manifest in many ways. Love is the light and source of all energy. It is love that allows us to feel happy. Without love, our lives are bleak and full of emptiness.

We all wish to be loved. But it is necessary to not only accept love, but also to give it. Only by sharing our happiness and love we can achieve real happiness. The feeling of love is therefore very important for our lives.

Let’s take a look now at which quotes capture the essence of our lives and the meaning of love within it in the best way.

    Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness Quotes

Feel Happy

If we want to experience the feeling of happiness in life, we must naturally also experience the opposite feeling. That is what we feel when we are unhappy and without joy.

Why do I think so?

The explanation is quite simple. You will not recognize light without darkness.

So, it is obvious that feelings of joy and happiness can’t be present our entire lives. On the other hand, we can always try to create them and to keep these feelings as long as possible. And how do we stay happy in the long-term?

I wrote a separate article regarding this topic, where I list specific pieces of advice and guides on how to reach this feeling. Another thing that may help you is to read and repeat quotes.

A quote and the words inside it have a power. In only a few moments, these words can often tell us something that the author spent some years realizing.

Let’s look at a quote that will help us to be healthy and happy.

  • “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
    Mahatma Gandhi
  • ​“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.”
    Marcus Aurelius
  • “Happiness depends upon ourselves.”
  • “No medicine cures what happiness cannot.”
    Gabriel García Márquez
  • “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”
  • “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”
    George Sand

Depression Quotes

Feel Depressed

I have experienced strong depression myself and I am not ashamed of it. I know that it is definitely nothing pleasant. I also know that any and all help is good in these states. But this mainly applies to help that aims to move us towards something better, towards realizing and understanding the nature of our depression.

If we understand the nature of our depression, we can work on eliminating it. That way, we won’t view such a bad psychological condition as a simple combination of internal and external influences. We will instead view our psyche as something within our own power and that we can effectively influence ourselves.

One way to influence our psyche is with the help of quotes. How is this possible?

It could be because quotes are words that compose certain thoughts. These words and thoughts together create energy that affects us. What we think and what we say creates our personality and our character. That is, what we sow in our minds is what we shall reap in reality. In this regard, I can recommend a book called The Secret.

That is why it’s important not to deepen our depression in unsuitable and negative ways of thinking. On the contrary, we should try to positively influence depression and to sove as many constructive and positive thoughts as possible. And here is where quotes present a powerful weapon. Quotes that will remind us:

  • that depressive feelings are nothing exceptional,
  • that we are not the only ones who experience depression,
  • and that depression can be effectively managed.

Let’s take a look at the quotes.

  • “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
    Mahatma Gandhi
  • “You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
    Marcus Aurelius
  • “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
    Desmond Tutu
  • “There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.”
    Bernard Williams
  • “When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.”
    Dalai Lama
  • “Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.”
    Robert H. Schuller
  • “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
    Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • “We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.”
    Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • “I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.”
    Dalai Lama
  • “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”
    Roy T. Bennett

Appreciation Quotes

Appreciation quotes are phrases that serve two purposes. The first purpose is to have the possibility to express thoughts of gratitude. In this case, it is possible to use these quotes to express gratitude or to thank another person. The second purpose relates to gratitude itself. The quotes serve as a way to be grateful for the human life.

Express Thoughts of Gratitude

Politeness, gratitude, modesty, and humility. Those are the values that, I think, create beauty and nobility in a person.

The truth is, these values are not very common nowadays in our modern and hurried times. But all the happier I am then when I encounter them in someone.

Therefore, I am sincerely happy that the appreciation quotes interest you. Let´s show someone our gratitude. Let’s thank someone from the bottom of our heart and make him or her happy.

“Thank you so much.”
“What would I do without you?”
“What would I do without you in my life?”
“Someday, I will give back what you have given me.”
“For all you do, and for who you are, I will be forever grateful that you are in my life.”
“Words cannot express my feelings, nor my thanks, for all your help.”

Quotes About Appreciation

If we wish to be really happy, we should not only be grateful towards people that we like. We should also be grateful towards people that we don’t like that much. We are all teachers to one another and forgiveness and gratitude can also be important for our own health.
Last but not least, let’s not forget to be grateful to all of nature and to our mother Earth. Accept her gifts with gratitude and humility.

  • “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
    John F. Kennedy
  • “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
    Anthony Robbins
  • “Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”
  • “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
    William Arthur Ward
  • “Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.”
    Karl Barth
  • “The more grateful we are, the more we practice this in our everyday lives, the more connected we become to the universe around us.”
    Stephen Richards
  • “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
    William Arthur Ward
  • “I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”

  • “I am happy because I’m grateful. I choose to be grateful. That gratitude allows me to be happy.”
    Will Arnett

Food Quotes

Healthy Food

Food is one of the most important parts of our life and our health. We often experience great feelings through food and many of its different tastes, such as feelings of happiness and contentedness. What is better than the feeling after a good meal?
But there is a huge “BUT”.

We can’t just follow our feelings and tastes with food. We can really call today “the poisonous age”. We ingest food which is denatured and processed in many ways, full of chemicals, poisons, and waste products. We should be aware of this, and we should mainly behave accordingly when it comes to eating.

And why am I writing this in relation to food quotes?

Because I believe that it is necessary to ignore information and opinions that could potentially cause us to create poor eating habits. And this applies to ignoring some quotes as well.

Which quotes do I mean?

Let’s take these quotes for instance:

  • “There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.”
    Kevin James
  • “Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate.“
    Jo Brand

Forget about similar statements. I know, it doesn’t sound good. Nevertheless, the statistics regarding (not only) obesity are absolutely dreadful (1). Find more information regarding food and healthy eating here.
But now, let’s take a look at some carefully selected quotes that give the right positive energy and vibe to people in relation to food.

  • “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
    Hippocrates of Kos
  • “You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.”
    Paul Prudhomme
  • “The best meals are those prepared by loving hands.”
    Ken Poirot
  • “A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”
    Benjamin Franklin
  • “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.”
    George Bernard Shaw
  • “Don’t eat anything your great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. There are a great many food-like items in the supermarket your ancestors wouldn’t recognize as food. … stay away from these.”
    Michael Pollan
  • “Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.”

  • “You are what what you eat eats.”
    Michael Pollan
  • “Cooking is great, but the meal that has been prepared for you with love is the best.”
