Meaningful Quotes

Welcome to these Meaningful quotes and sayings. What is a "meaningful" quote? While there is no definition of a "meaningful quote," philosophical quotes and sayings about serious subjects that inspire thought are often termed "meaningful quotes." Generally, the full depth of a "meaningful quote" is not immediately obvious, and one is required to contemplate the true meaning, or deeper meaning, of the quote or saying. I hope you enjoy and find value in these Meaningful Quotes about Life.
