Stai fencing delle beautiful phrases about life? In this article I have collected for you 100 aphorisms of some of the brightest minds in history, aphorisms that will accompany and inspire you on your path of personal improvement.


There are those who collect stamps, there are those who collect coins, I collect ... passwords.

For almost 20 years now I have been in the habit of collecting and jealously guarding the most beautiful phrases I find in my readings (books of personal growth, philosophy, literature, poetry, science).

I have now collected hundreds and every time I need inspiration I browse mine archive of beautiful phrases.

Doing so is good for the soul.

In this GetPersonalGrowth article I have collected for you 100 unpublished quotes from my collection.

In short, not the usual Perugina acchiappa like kissing phrases, but profound reflections written by sages, artists, poets, warriors and statesmen; phrases that explore human nature and talk about:

  • Self Consciousness.
  • Courage.
  • Inspiration.
  • Action.
  • Rebellion.

I warn you: some of them are not immediate, and will require you some moments of reflection. But their value is also in this. I deliberately avoided accompanying them with an interpretation of them, precisely because I want these words to decant in your mind.

Sometimes one of these phrases will strike you on a visceral level, even if you don't quite know why. When that happens, give yourself some time. Absorb these words and if you will be intrigued, explore their meaning in your research.

When a sentence hits you, it will never be by accident, and its exploration will give you important clues about it what you need in this moment of your life.

Having said that, in some cases I have allowed myself to link you to GetPersonalGrowth articles that can give you a first interpretation :)

I sincerely hope these phrases brighten your days as they have enlightened me for years.

Let's begin.
