About Gracious Quotes & Jeremiah Say

Jeremiah Say

I want you to learn quickly.

I want you to be inspired.

I want you to know that you are not alone.

We have a tendency to want to fit in. Reading quotes can motivate and help us feel like we are not alone.

That is my goal with Gracious Quotes.

To inspire you so you can feel better about yourself.

Here is the thing, a quote at the right time has the potential to change your life (or even save your life).

Quotes are not just words, quotes are life lessons and wisdom that are packed into a sentence or two.

Now, a little Secret…

I was hit with a financial crisis and left with a debt of 6 figures before my 30s.

Then, I discovered quotes and they gave me hope. You could say that quotes literally saved my life too because I wanted to end my life on numerous occasions back then.

To this day, I still use quotes daily to garner inspiration, motivate myself, and to learn.

I hope quotes will do the same for you as they did for me.

I want nothing but the best for you.

Why We Think Quotes Are Important

Most of us want to learn and garner 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 is crucial.

Yes, quote in itself is definitely not be-all-end-all but 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 Instantly.”

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 to a movie except they are shown in words rather than in motions.

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.
