Here is a wonderful motivational quote by Anisha Shenai, Salutatorian of Danvers High School in Massachusetts.

"We contradict ourselves and it is wonderful. It is wonderful, because I know that it is this paradoxical state that will guide us. It will ground us in the realities of the present, but still never allow us to cease forging onwards and upwards, forever in pursuit of that glimmer that separates the plain from the remarkable."

Wonderful Words of Wisdom

Well said, Anisha Shenai. I find your positive thoughts really motivational and demystifying. In real world, the art, knowledge and power, all could be paradoxical. As Lao Tzu said "The words of truth are always paradoxical". Your inspiring advice provides the clarity and confidence boost on our path to achieve personal goals. Thanks.

Fountain of Motivation for Aspiring Artists

Anisha Shenai, I like your super-motivating quote. It gives a great guidance for talented artists who continually struggle in real world with their self-created demons of dichotomy. You give them the supreme knowledge in so few words and so directly....true, sometimes one has to dance with the demons so as to conquer them and become the leader extraordinaire! Keep up the good work.

Great philosophy, Anisha Shenai
by: Angela McGuire

I like your thoughtful advice on progressing in life while dealing with contradictions effectively. I am not sure who said this, but a contradiction can sometimes get confused as the signal of defeat, but it's a wrong interpretation. On the path to evolution of real knowledge it always marks the first step in progress towards a victory. This philosophy and thoughts of wisdom by Anisha are really inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

Motivating and Thought Stimulating Quote
by: Jocelyn Fitzpatrick

I agree with Anisha Shenai about how paramount can the paradoxical states be while guiding our path to perfection in life. Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of contradictions or catch 22 situations that clearly defy logic and our intuition.

We find those surprising, perplexing and sometimes ironic, but we learn a lot from them and come out lot stronger than before. This quote really made me step back and re-think on life in many ways than I usually could have. Thank you for this enlightening experience.

Great Motivating Quote On Life
by: Maureen Harding

This is one amazing motivational quote that highlights the importance of dichotomies in life while following our dreams. The two non-overlapping sides of our actions may seem contradicting, but they are often complementing each other and are mutually exclusive. This quote explained to me, clearly and precisely, how this paradoxical state actually guides us and helps in achieving our extraordinary goals.

Wonderful wisdom and a fascinating inspirational quote on Christmas Day! God Bless You!
