We’re sure that at one point or another, you have heard the voice of Morgan Freeman ringing in your ear, whether you’ve recently watched one of his many films, or are just trying to picture his wisdom guiding your way. Honestly, there is a reason why he was chosen to play the role of God in a couple of films, right? Yes, Morgan Freeman does have one of the most calm and soothing voices that you can come across, but he has also been known to spread some inspirational quotes every now and again that can act as the voice of reason. That’s why we are here. We are going to count down for you the top ten Morgan Freeman quotes that will be your guiding light as you walk through life. With all of that said, let’s begin our count down of the wisdom that is Morgan Freeman.
‘Challenge Yourself. It’s The Only Path Which Leads To Growth.’:
Challenge accepted. We must challenge ourselves in order to grow and prosper with our goals and aspirations.
‘How Do We Change The World? One Random Act of Kindness at a Time.’:
We’re sure you’ve heard this quote one time or another. It is one of the most well known of Morgan Freeman’s quotes that has circulated, and for good reason. It is so important that we remember to embrace kindness, and to spread it like wildfire everywhere we go.
‘I once heard a wise man say there are no perfect men. Only perfect intentions.’:
This is an awesome quote. So often, we try to be perfect in every way, and we overshadow the good intentions that can come through in the smallest and slightest of ways. If we instead focus on those good and perfect intentions rather than appearing ‘perfect’, we become good and ‘perfect’ people.
‘You measure yourself by the people who measure themselves by you.’:
We have never heard a truer statement. It may take a couple of read-throughs of this quote to understand, but in entirety, it is saying that we compare ourselves by those that we surround ourselves with, and they are comparing just the same. We are so quick to make comparisons and try to better ourselves in that form, when we should just be trying to be true to who we are as individuals.
‘Don’t be different just for different’s sake. If you see it differently, function that way. Follow your own muse, always.’:
This quote also seems to go hand in hand with the Morgan Freeman quote that was listed before. It is a beautiful thing to be different, and have different quirks from others that are around us. We must learn as individuals to embrace those unique attributes for what they are, and who they make us, no matter what.
‘The best way to guarantee a loss is to quit.’:
Perseverance is key. Simple as that. We automatically set ourselves up for failure when we get in the mindset of quitting, of not making it to that so called ‘finish line. Work hard, and do your best to achieve your goals no matter how long it takes.
‘You can’t take credit for talent; you can only take credit for using it.’:
Everyone has some sort of talent; In fact, there are many out there who have the same or similar talents. So, rather than taking credit for the talent itself, and for having it, take the time to use your talents to better your life and the lives of others as well.
‘Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen — that stillness becomes a radiance.’:
So often, we get too wrapped up in life. In schedules, jobs, relationships, everything. This Morgan Freeman quote is so inspirational as it tells you directly that we must learn to embrace the stillness, as it can be a true thing of beauty.
‘One of the things you can always depend on — this is one of the truths of the universe, and you heard it first from here — whatever we decide we want to do is what we do.’:
This quote is fantastic; Not just because Morgan Freeman is staking his claim to this ‘truth of the universe’, but because it is so honestly true. We often forget sometimes that we have the ability to do whatever we want, because we tend to fall toward the opinions and feelings of others for their approval. Once we learn to let go of that need for approval, we are able to live out our hopes and dreams, and all of the decisions that come along the way.
‘If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn’t worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality.’:
Show of hands, how many of you have fantasized about what you life will be like. Many people tend to set goals for themselves for five, ten years out even. This, in all honesty, can be a thing of make believe. As Morgan Freeman says, we must do something worthwhile that allows us to challenge our reality, and make it something that we have always dreamed about, rather than just keeping our heads in the clouds.
If we didn’t bring on all of the inspirational feels from these Morgan Freeman quotes, then you may need to up your game a bit. On the other hand, if you did like these quotes from our one of the greatest actors of our time, you can find even more of his quotes online as well.
