Top 135 Movement Quotes To Get You Going

Movement

Movement refers to the act of moving or motion. It can mean a change, development, or a group working towards this change. Movement always makes a difference, no matter how small, and that's why movement is important in our lives.

Spending a lot of time at the same spot leads to stagnation and lack of growth, career-wise, physically, spiritually, or mentally. Nothing happens unless we move.

If we park a car on the side of the road and never bother to start it again, it will remain there for decades. The same applies to our dreams, relationships, jobs, bodies, etc. If we stay where we are, we are bound to remain there for the rest of our lives.

Your health will not improve until you move. Your toxic relationship will remain harmful to you unless you move. Your dreams will remain just dreams until you decide to bring them to life.

Movement is very valuable, and you should embrace it. No matter how scared you are of moving from point A to point B, you will never know what is in point B until you make that move.

We agree that movement can be exciting, frustrating, scary, stressful, risky, and fun. Moving is not an easy decision to make because you are unsure of what the next point has in store for you.

However, moving from where things are now is much better than remaining there doing nothing. It could potentially open doors to more life, love, laughter, opportunities, and growth.

So go ahead and begin doing those exercises, ask for that promotion, move to that new city, start that animal rights movement in your town, wake up earlier to work on your dreams, whatever it is, keep moving!

We hope this collection of movement quotes will push you in the right direction.

I began to swim, an armless silver mermaid, using only my hips to generate motion, until finally my ass scraped against the lake's mucky bottom. I turned then and used my hips and waist to roll three times, until I came ashore near a ratty green towel. They'd left me a towel. How thoughtful.

What does a lighthouse do? I ask myself. It never moves. It cannot hike up its rocky skirt and dash into the ocean to rescue the foundering ship. It cannot calm the waters or clear the shoals. It can only cast light into the darkness. It can only point the way. Yet, through one lighthouse, you guide many ships. Show this old lighthouse the way.
