Who does not love the great Dalai Lama? I think out of all the inspirational and encouraging quotes I read on the internet, his stand out the most. They are so deep and powerful, thought-provoking and enlightening! I’m also a huge fan of Rumi and his quotes. Though I’m not a huge fan of poems, Rumi’s poems move me in ways that I’ve never been moved before!
Do you ever find that when you’re scrolling through Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook, the very best and the most encouraging quotes show up just when you need to read them? Coincidence? Nope. That’s all serendipity and divine timing.
I read so many of these inspirational posters every day. It’s almost part of my job. Find the best quotes on life for you guys and share them out. The following blog posts are actually pretty popular on Pinterest right now. I have to admit, they’re kinda my favourites too!

But I still gotta say, the Dalai Lama probably is in the top 3 of the most encouraging quotes about life. Let me share my top 10 with you now. I hope you like them.
Encouraging Quotes by Dalai Lama
At the top of the list is this one for good reason, it’s such a powerful and deep quote. Kindness is a religion. It doesn’t have to be all about your God or my God. Kindness is universal. How beautiful!
- My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness
Next on the list is this one. This has the most uplifting message. I love it.
- If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
This one is kind of funny but makes you think, that’s for sure.
- If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.
This is one the most inspirational quotes ever in my books. This one is short, sweet and drives a powerful message home.
- Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
I love this one. We can’t control others, not even with our love and we shouldn’t try. Love people freely and let them feel free as well.
- Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.
This one is a powerful and uplifting quote. It certainly will make you stop and think about life and peace.
- We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves
Here’s a good one. Sometimes it’s better to just be quiet rather than argue. Peace is always better than being right.
- Silence is sometimes the best answer
Oh this is a good one!! Rules are there to be broken. Well some of them are anyway. This is one of my favourite encouraging quotes by Dalai Lama. He knows what he’s talking about, right?
- Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.
Yes yes yes and so much yes on this uplifting and inspirational quote!!
- Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.
And the final one for this amazing round up of the best quotes on life from the great Dalai Lama is this one
- Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day.
Every day is precious and we need to remember to be grateful for the day and all the amazing things in our life. Though it might not be perfect right now, remember there are people praying to have the things you have now.
Uplifting and inspiring quotes are there to help us
If you take a few moments to really let the inspirational message of each encouraging quote you read, whether it be a love quote or self love quote, a happy one or a gratitude one, you can really feel the power of the meaning.
Sometimes life is hard, really hard. Trust me I get it. I’ve been there, way down on rock bottom and it’s not pretty. When I was there it was inspirational and motivational quotes that got me through some of my darkest moments.
I held on to those quotes and read them every chance I could.
I wrote them out on post it notes and taped them all over my apartment.
I would read them aloud as often as I could.
I felt each and every one and let their powerful message and meaning sink in deep. It’s all I had and I desperately needed the words of encouragement.
