Recently, while writing some articles about Naruto and his quotes, I have really been quite impressed. I haven’t seen the anime and I regret it more than anything. Naruto is one of the best series as it teaches you not only about the life lessons but also a fun anime to watch. After I wrote the articles on Bonds, Pain, and humor, I couldn’t resist myself from researching a little more into it. So as I was looking into I found a labyrinth of quotes that were said by Naruto. These quotes are such that cannot be categorized but gives good meaning to your life situation.
I remember when I first started with the Quotes on Pain, I was flabbergasted. You won’t believe but each one of us experiences a situation where you will be able to find the quotes. The quotes are so apt that they reach directly to your mind and soul. While searching the deep lanes of this huge Naruto Universe, I found some gems that are so beautiful that I was compelled to write a dedication piece on it. Here are the few of the quotes that I find best, but it should not stop you from finding and reading more by yourself. If you are not a fan of reading you can also watch the Show. I am watching too.
“A SMILE IS THE BEST WAY TO GET AWAY WITH TROUBLE EVEN IF IT IS A FAKE ONE” this is the best life hack. Nothing in life should stop you. No matter how hard life becomes or how much the stress and depression you might be facing, you should ever stop. Nothing is impossible to achieve. Everything is possible. If life is a bit hard on you today, don’t worry, you will be rewarded much more for it. And even while suffering you should never stop smiling. A smile can take you a long way. So no matter how hard the situations are, try and smile and while doing it you should make sure to look in the mirror. It will give the strength and the positive vibes to never stop dreaming.
“WHEN PEOPLE ARE PROTECTING SOMETHING TRULY SPECIAL TO THEM, THEY BECOME THE STRONGEST” you must have seen how animals protect their cubs when they see it in danger. It is the same way the human behaving. When we find something dear to us in danger we become the strongest for protecting it. So when you dream of something, you should treat it like something very dear and close to you. Only then you will be able to thrive the best and able to achieve it. Hard work is most important but the belief is driving force. Until you believe in it, no matter how much hard work you put into it, you won’t succeed.
“THERE’S NO ADVANTAGE IN HURRYING THROUGH LIFE” the sense of competition has been imbibed into it right from the childhood. We are always taught to be the best. Whereas real teaching should be that we should always try our best. Therefore there is no advantage in going fast in life, you should work best.
“IT’S FOOLISH TO FEAR WHAT YOU’RE YET TO SEE AND HEAR” we as humans learn to fear as soon as we start learning, seeing, hearing or touching things. We fear results, chastisement, failure and the like. We are always in the stress and the pressure on how our future is going to be. What new surprises life may have for us? This fear cripples us from within. No matter how strong-willed a person is, irrespective of the hard work always looks out for unpredictable situations. Therefore, this quote simply makes us aware of the fact that it’s no point in actually fearing the future. Neither can you alter nor avoid the future, so if you cannot do anything about it then what’s the point of fearing it? Isn’t it?
“THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GENIUS AND INSANITY CAN BE MEASURED BY SUCCESS AND FAILURE” No matter what your hard work always gets praised. If you have the genius to work hard it will be reflected in your success. And success doesn’t simply mean by monetary rewards but by the friends and relationship, respect, and recognition. These are the signs of true success.
“IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE HAND THAT FATE’S DEALT YOU, FIND FOR A NEW ONE” life is no cake walk. There may be times when you will be disappointed that things did not turn out right. Also, there may be days when life is as easy as butter. So, whenever you feel life has not treated you well you should change the course of action. It is rightly said that only a fool will expect different results with the same course of action. Whenever you encounter failure, change your method. Only then you will be successful.
“A SOUL NEEDS A PURPOSE TO LIVE” a life without purpose is not worth leaving. The life needs a goal, some aim so as to move forward. If we fail to have an aim, what shall we live for? Thus make sure life is not vain. Have a goal. The goal could be anything but it should be enough to motivate you. It should be something that helps to get up in the morning and give you sleepless nights.
“ALL THINGS THAT HAVE FORM EVENTUALLY DECAY” never have the pride of materialistic things. All your things, your relationships, prized possession come with a life tag. You can never keep these things with you forever. They will eventually decay. But what will stay with you is yourself, your knowledge, your soul, your mind and your feelings. So, never detach yourself of it. Make sure you always learn, cleanse your mind and soul from time to time and educate yourself other than just books.
“THERE IS NO MEANING IN FLOWER UNTIL IT BLOOMS” the flower bud is of no worth. You must have seen nobody even looks the flower buds in the way they do to the flowers full grown. It’s not their fault but just because a full grown is more beautiful to look at. So, if you’re still in the phase where your success is due, wait until you do. Only then you will get the most respect and recognition. Anything you experience before that is just a mirage. This illusion is not a real success. Until you achieve what you really aspire for, you should never settle or think of something else to be as your success.
“LISTEN TO YOURSELF WHINING AND COMPLAINING LIKE SOME SORRY LITTLE VICTIM” this is such a good motivation push. A slight mishappening and we start complaining how life is unfair. That’s the sign of a weak person. As soon as you start complaining about your failures, you fail for real. Life will be unfair, work harder. Never even for a second let your minds believe that you might have failed. Just remember it is because something is missing.
“ONCE YOU QUESTION YOUR BELIEF, IT’S OVER” well if I have interpreted this in my words, I would say, never leave your dreams. Your dreams are the only truth that lives within you. You should never leave them. Leaving them would mean living without a purpose. And we already know that life without purpose is of no use. These ambitions of you are the truth you truly believe in and thus if you left them even for a second, which is really not a true belief. Never doubt yourself, your beliefs otherwise life would be very difficult.
“DON’T UNDERESTIMATE ME. I DON’T QUITE AND I DON’T RUN” THIS should be one of your life mottos. Don’t think less of yourself. There is nothing you cannot do. Nothing is impossible if you know you can do it. So starting before anything you should always be determined about it. And when you are so determined with your beliefs you won’t quit.
“I CARE ABOUT OTHERS THAN MYSELF, AND I WON’T LET ANYONE HURT THEM” I don’t how to appropriately explain this. We all strive for our self. It is rare and difficult to find people who would do something for others. This is what the quote is trying to tell you. You should never ignore the third party presence in your life. No matter how isolated you are internally or physically, you are never alone. You can survive only with the help of others. Man is, after all, a social animal and needs to depend on others. So it is important to care for them, to know their problems and never hurt them. In the quote, I presume ANYONE is actually you.
“DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS, THERE IS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN SUN AND MOON, THEY SHINE WHEN IT’S TIME” well the common problem faced by people these days is aspiring to be someone else. When it is out of inspirations it leads you to success. But when it is out of adulation it leads you unforeseen and unwanted events. The reason why most people are so stressed and unhappy these days because they measure their success with the success of other. But what you fail to notice is the struggle they have had before reaching the zenith. So never compare your success with the success of other people, they haven’t reached there because of sheer luck but because of hard work. If you envy it or desire it, it is because your hard work is still not complete. Always give your best while working, the result shall be outstanding.
“SOME OF OUR GREATEST PAIN BECOMES OUR SOURCE OF STRENGTH.” I have had moments in life when I felt there is no going forward from this point. The first was in my 12th standard when I worked hard for y board exams. I was confident to score above 90% but unfortunately, I got stuck at 89.8%. I was upset and angry but that did not stop me from working hard in the college. I worked with more diligence and believe me I topped my class in all three years. The reason why I worked this hard was that I had the pain of not succeeding that pain made thrive more, work more on my weaknesses and succeed after all. So never stop after your failures, they are not meant to stop you but make you stronger to strike with more blows. Until you have experienced the pain of failure you never enjoy the sweet taste of success.
“TURN YOUR SADNESS INTO KINDNESS AND YOUR UNIQUENESS YOUR STRENGTH” we all are born with something that is unique to just us. The first step to success is to know what that unique quality of yours is. Only then you can polish it and reach the zenith. Always look out for what makes you happy and what you do best. if you are able to recognize that your already 50% successful. Shape your uniqueness towards success. And on this journey always be emphatic. People are going through the same problems that you are going through. If you are not kind to them, what is the point of learning from your own grief?
These are all my interpretation of the quotes and thus it can vary from people and their life stages. My motive was more or less motivate yours with some real-life experiences. And I hope I am successful in doing so.
Here some of the few quotes that you should think about:
- I am strong because I know my weakness, I am beautiful because I know my flaws, I am wise because I learn from my mistakes, I know love because I know hate and I can laugh because I have known sadness.
- APPRECIATE everything near you, before the moments turn into memories.
- The strongest people are not the people who win but the people who don’t give up when they fail.
- A student’s duty is to grow so strong that he is able to shoulder the master.
- A hero is not one that never fails but he who gets up again and again, without losing sight of his dreams.
