Just a little off topic perhaps, but, I’m frequently asked why would anyone need to use life quotes. I mean, how important can such quotes be? After all, insprational quotes are only words.

Well typically, you might use life quotes for a variety of good reasons. Using a string of influential quotes in any media will present you as an extremely well educated, clever, intellectual and authoritative figure. Dropping some life quotes makes you look like some kind of super guru. Life quotes gives any written report a powerful air of trustworthiness or authority. Whether in a college essay, a school thesis, a captivating post, or even a business report, carefully selected lifes quotes are certain to add that bit of class.

Then, if you’re called upon to deliver a speech, or an oration of any kind, commencing with motivational quotes will grab attention, or amuse, or otherwise captivate your audience like almost nothing else can. Everyone from high school debating teams to country presidents use life quotes. Therefore, should you fail to use quotations, you miss out big-time. The very best of British luck to you. Thank you for allowing me to share this rant.

Appreciate the presentation of your weblog, incidentally. In the infamous words of our beloved Arnold S, “I’ll be back” (if you’ll have me) 🙂
