If you have been reading Enhance Life for a while, you would have noticed by now that I am a quotes fanatic! From the response I received for inspirational quotes that get me through the toughest of days, I realize that I am not the only one!

What may be less evident to you is exactly how you can use them to improve your daily life. The next time you read a great quotation, do more than just think it is it very good. Decide to use one of the seven ideas below, to help the wisdom of the quotation benefit you and those around you.

Using Quotes To Make Yourself Memorable

1. The making of a remarkable gift
bracelet with quoteDid I mention that December 2nd was my birthday! I got a fabulous gift (let’s not go into details.. ahem..). The gift itself was both expensive and useful; I was more touched by the note that came along with the gift! Needless to say it had a great quote, that made my day!
So yes, quotes are a great way to express gratitude, love , admiration, or respect for a person. Believe me, quotes have a way of adding an essence of magic, even to a extra special gift!

2. Add to the email signature
Most people generally include their name, contact information etc at the bottom of every email. Consider using a quote that is thought provoking, funny or one that expresses a belief or value.
By doing so, you are giving others a glimpse of your personality, something to think about and at the same time you are differentiating yourself from the crowd.

3. Using quotes in presentations, documents

I noticed that songs also often contain good quotes - I do sing those parts of such songs in the morning under the shower for instance to get them into mind.

I have a few specific quotes that I use when I experience certain "negative" emotions. I think of the quote as soon as I feel the emotion arising and it has the effect of cutting it off.
