Meaningful Thoughts with Explanations for Students

Studies can be stressful at times. Exams, essays, assignments, and due dates can add up to a heavy workload that weighs down a student. 

Hence here are are some meaningful thoughts that might help students on a daily basis as a source of motivation:

  • “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” by Malcolm X 

Meaning of this quote: What you learn in college today readies you for making your own way on the job market in the near future. You won’t be able to apply everything you’ve learned, but you’ll have a solid foundation to work from. Don’t underestimate the importance of developing soft skills like teamwork, time management, and critical thinking as you work through group projects and deadlines.

  • “A little progress each day adds up to big results.” by Satya Nani

Meaning of the quote: Don’t expect to be able to absorb everything you need to study quickly and effortlessly. Allow yourself time to take small steps and break large topics down into smaller chunks. Every day, you’ll learn something new, which means you’re making progress.

  • “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” by  Walt Disney

Meaning of this quote: Too often, we get stuck in a rut of talking about or fantasising about starting a project rather than actually getting started. It’s the fear of failing that makes us come up with excuses but it’s okay to make mistakes. You will never grow unless you begin and make mistakes along the way.
