Oscar Wilde was a famous Irish poet and playwright of his time. He has contributed to inspiring the world by his quotes
“The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future”
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all”
“I can resist everything except temptation”
“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world”
These were some of the best motivating quotes by this famous Irish poet. We all struggle and face challenges in our day to day and need to overcome them to live happily and freely. At that time motivation works like a miracle to the suffering and we feel energetic to perform our 100% in any task. Here, we are highlighting such a motivational thought by Oscar Wilde that is definitely going to hit you hard and helps in inspiring.
“We are all in the Gutter but some of us are looking at the stars”
This is one of the greatest quotes of all time by Oscar Wilde but did you know its meaning?
Here “we are all in the gutter” is used for the struggles, hard times, and problems which we are facing in our lives and “some of us looking at the stars” stand for those rare ones who have decided to remain positive and focused on their dreams despite having challenges. Wilde considers these humans as rare ones and these are those who will ultimately be successful in finding their dreams.
This is the fact whether one accepts this or not that everyone in this world is facing their challenges and problems. Challenges are a part of our life and it comes to teach us, to furnish us so that we can shine to our brightest. It’s the perception that makes all the difference. You can face it with positivity and will rise to the top or can easily accept the defeat and lose your dream. Some choose to remain at the “gutter”- to easily give up and accept the loss. These people can’t achieve what they have desired.
A world is full of diversity, on the other hand, there are other people too who have taken their challenges as a hammer hitting the coal to become a diamond. These people are rare and often achieve what they have desired. Remember only that one can be successful who knows how to rise up after being fallen or knows how to take problems as fuel to fire. The challenges help in remembering the goal of our life and we work even harder to achieve it at only cost. The only difference between a loser and an achiever is the perception by which he looks at the difficult situation that changes the entire game.
CONCLUSION – By this inspiring quote of Oscar Wilde hopefully you got motivated to look for the stars rather than being in the gutter. Face the challenges with positivity and shine like a diamond when you are being hit by the struggles as a hammer. Remember it is the hammer and its hit that transforms the coal into a diamond just like that it is the struggles and challenges that will shine you up and help you in achieving your dream.
