There are many types of quotes in the Internet but have you ever thought that what makes a quote best? The answer is simple: it depends on what is going on your life and experiences in that moment. For example, you can like a quote now but you will probably not much like it tomorrow. However, a best quote should slap you in the face all the time and it should not push you to become someone else. It has to encourage you to be who you already are.
If we look at the examples of some best quotes, Ralph Waldo Emerson says: “Imitation is suicide”. This quotation clearly promotes to be original or be yourself in your whole life. Otherwise, you will imitate someone else’s life. Also, there is a similar quote from Virginia Satir and she looks to being original in another way. She says, “We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us”. In this quote, she mentions that we all humans have a reflection on the other people’s eye but our whole identity is not limited with this perception and we are much more than our appearance or sensation on the other’s mind. Kurt Cobain also says “Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are” and he signifies the importance of being yourself.
In the life, many people want to become another person and emulate another person’s life or skills. However, they ignore the effect of being oneself because if you try to imitate someone, who seems wonderful to you, you will not be satisfied. Even you push yourself to have success, as like that person, you will fail to notice your own skills and abilities.
When you check the best quotes in the Internet, you can see most of the quotes are related with being who you are because people are fed up with imitating something desirable. They want to stop this situation but people needs some triggers for their purpose. Thus, they need some quotes that will encourage them. Otherwise, they cannot take an action and they will maintain to hide their own personality.
