99 Interesting Quotes That Will Open Your Mind
View Gallery

While we can't take all of our wisdom from just a few choice words, or even choice sentences, there's just something about a perfectly phrased quote that can open our minds and our hearts, causing us to think and feel things we may not have even thought possible before.

Interesting quotes like these — especially when they come from luminaries like Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, or Neil DeGrasse Tyson — can actually shape how we see the world. These words can define who we are and who we will become.

Whether these quotes come from the world of science, politics, the arts, and beyond, they are the words that we live by. But, sometimes, the words we live by don't come from such lofty places at all, but instead from the world of pop culture. After all, just because the following was said by Homer Simpson doesn't make it any less poignant: "Sometime, when you least expect it, you'll realize that someone loved you. And that means that someone can love you again! And that'll make you smile."

Then there are the unquestionably brilliant thinkers that you fully expect to blow your mind, and they do. These are people like Noam Chomsky and Bill Nye, who will dazzle you even with straightforward wisdom like: "Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't."

And that's certainly true of the great minds of this list. So, from the bitingly insightful quotes of Mark Twain to the poignant aphorisms of Bruce Lee, enjoy a fresh outlook on life with these interesting quotes that will change how you see the world, in the gallery above.
