Have you ever noticed how the most inspirational quotes you read (or hear) resonate so deeply that they set off bells ringing in your soul? They speak so eloquently that you know you have read something profound meant just for you. And, you know you must share them with others.
Sharing these profound quotes is what this page, and its related pages, is all about.
You may or may not know the enlightened people who have authored (what I consider) the most inspirational quotes on these pages. So, references have been provided, where possible, in case you desire to know more about the authors or their works.
Some of the quotes may resonate for you; some may not. If one doesn’t resonate for you, it’s all good. Come back tomorrow…or next month…or next year. You may find the quote has a whole new meaning for you at that time!

The first on my list of the most inspirational quotes is from the introduction to A Course in Miracles:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
A Course in Miracles, T-in.2:2-3. See Note 1.
How much more eloquently may it be said, and in two brief lines, what our time on Earth is for—to know that we are eternal beings (nothing real can be threatened), who are having an experience in a place we’ve created with our powerful intention (nothing unreal exists)?
Most often, an additional line is added to the above quote:
Herein lies the peace of God.
A Course in Miracles, T-in.2:4. See Note 1.
The intention of this website is to be generally spiritual and not to promote any one religion. Anyone, I believe, may receive inspiration from this line by translating it to: once we know that we are spiritual beings who have created our own Earthly experience, peace of mind awaits us.
Imagine the possibilities that peace of mind might bring to your life!
Quotes are divided into categories for easier reference, with each category having its own page. As a new quote comes my way, it will be added to the category page that seems the most appropriate. Or, it may even spark the creation of a new category page!
Quotes are about being open to wisdom from the Universe. You may see a quote’s wisdom in one way today and in another way next week. So, I invite you to come back often! Who knows where these gems of wisdom may lead you?
