Gracious Quotes is a community (created on 12 February 2020) to help you discover mysterious passion and unknown inspiration that you didn’t know were there before.

We aim to collect the world’s wisdom in easy-to-read image format.

We invest heavily in our infrastructure so you can enjoy a blazing-fast experience with minimum lag time when taking a stroll on our site.

How to Use This Community

Gracious Quotes allows you ample time and space to indulge deeper into the quotes so you can have a more profound meditation without feeling like you are in a rush.

We structured our quotes strategically so you can read them from top to bottom like a storybook.

By the time you reach the end of the post, you will feel significantly more inspired… as if you just have a deep conversation with a friend.

Don’t take my word… try out for yourself. Here are our most popular posts if you do not know where to start.

I hope this community will cultivate your inner being and take deep root in your spirit.

Welcome to the world of image quotations…

Why Image Quotes

The Wisdom of the World should not be limited to just text, it should be expendable to images and videos too.

There are countless text quotes on the internet but there are NOT a lot of image and video quotes.

In this digital day and age, having images can help with more accessible sharing (with just a click of the mouse) and is more convenient for digital storage (think Pinterest, Flickr, Google Drive, etc.)

Why Gracious Quotes

  • I want you to learn quickly.
  • I want you to be inspired.
  • I want you to know that you are not alone.

That is my goal with this community.

To share quotes with you so you can:

  • Be motivated and allow the quotes to speak directly to your situation and act as powerful catalysts with life-changing possibilities.
  • Be inspired in times of self-doubt. Sometimes, reading quotes is like having conversations with a friend.
  • Discover mysterious passions that you didn’t know were there before.

I first discovered the power of quotes in 2017 when I was absolutely depressed.

Quotes gave me hope.

Today, I still use quotes daily to motivate myself and to learn.

I hope quotes will cultivate your inner being and take deep root in your spirit as much as they did for me.

Our world has enough negativity going on.

I don’t care if the web has thousands of quotes’ websites, I believe in this community because the world needs more positivity.

I believe in strategically executing quotes with style and simplicity… with elegant image quotes and sleek to-the-point videos.

This is why I did what I do…

About Gracious Quotes

GraciousQuotes.com is about inspiring people through the power of quotes. Quotes are powerful because they have the ability to summarize a life-long lesson in just a few words.

Reading a good quote every day can improve a reader’s life hence we work diligently to curate the best quotes for our readers.

I surround myself with quotes because I believe in the power of words. The right person, reading the right quote, at the right time can be life-altering.

Why We Think Quotes Are Important

Most of us want to learn and gain inspiration quickly.

Quotes matter because not everyone is comfortable reading an entire book just to learn something and definitely not everyone has the time to travel the world to look for inspiration.

Words, in the form of quotes, can help people learn at a much quicker rate. Finding inspiration is also extremely common in the form of quotes so that is why we think Gracious Quotes are crucial.

It is still worth our time and effort to inspire people daily.

People matter and that is why we believe quotes matter.

How We Curate the Best Quotes

We do not just open a couple of quote websites and copy and paste all the quotes from different sources and title it “101 Quotes to Make You Smile.”

Though, the title isn’t too shabby, what we are focusing on is the quality of our content.

We want our readers to resonate with what they are searching and because of that, relevancy is key.

GraciousQuotes.com is structured in a blog format because we believe this can enhance our user experience.

We curate the best content not by focusing on quantity but on the quality of the quotes. We read and study all of our competitors and their quotes and we pick out only the best ones to place into our blog.

It is not a surprise that on some of our posts, we have significantly fewer quotes compared to other websites.

We curate the best quotes by focusing on QUALITY; not quantity.

Why We Love Quotes

Apart from why we think quotes are important…

We love quotes because reading quotes is the easiest way to learn about a person or a topic.

Reading an author’s quotes gives us a better understanding of the author’s personality. If we can resonate with the quotes, chances are, we can resonate with the rest of the book.

We love quotes because they are interesting.

They are like trailers for a movie except they are shown in words rather than in motion.

We love quotes because they affirm what we believe in.

Sometimes, we crave to have that extra security, and reading quotes give us the reassurance that we are in good company.

We are not alone. Someone somewhere is thinking exactly as we are. It makes us feel safe.

To sum it up, quotes summarize everything so we can have a glimpse of what we need to know. It saves us time and money.

What is there not to love about quotes?
