153 Reason Quotes That Could Point You To Why Things Happen

Reason

Everything happens for a reason. There's always a reason behind every why, when, what, and how. Nothing just happens for the sake of happening. A reason has to be behind it all. Whether something is good or bad, there's always a reason.

You are also motivated by reasons when you do and say things. Maybe you want something to happen as a result, someone to think in a certain way, or someone to do something.

You will love someone because something pulled you to them. You will be kind to someone because you believe in kindness and doing good. You will say something mean to someone because they hurt you too.

Even when some things seem unexplainable on the surface, when you look deep down, you will find the reason why. And when something bad happens to you, don't be so blinded with sadness that you cannot see why it had to happen.

It happened to teach you something. Find the reason, and you'll be able to appreciate it happening to you no matter how bad it hurt you. Even people have their reasons for leaving us.

They could give all sorts of excuses like how it's not you but them. Or how they need to find themselves. But the reason is usually that they are not supposed to be a part of your future.

Find healthy reasons why things happened the way they happened and use them as climbing stones to a better tomorrow. Look at things from a more positive perspective.

Not everything is meant to be, and if you can find a good reason behind it, it will be easier for you to let go and move on. Our 'reason quotes' will give you the wisdom to understand the reasons why to courageously move on. Read on.

You don't know what happened. You couldn't. Because you weren't there to see it. So I don't care what you've heard. Nothing about her is monstrous. Nothing. You... You don't know how scared she was that night. So don't try and tell me she wasn't! Her hands were shaking. Her voice was trembling. Her skin was cold to the touch, and her face pale with fear. Even so, she stood her ground and refused to run away from me! That's right! She was terrified, but she didn't run. She stayed! She held onto me the whole time! She must have known that if she let go... I would never return. If I slipped through her hands, I'd be gone. And no one would be able to bring me back. She didn't erase all my pain or offer to solve all of my problems. She didn't fix everything that was broken. But that's not what I needed anyway. Not really. What mattered most was that... she stayed.

Mom taught me that people’s differences are something to celebrate. When I thought of all the different shapes of human kindness — imagining them as round or square…I got really excited.

I was so tired of her getting upset for no reason. The way she would get sulky and make references to the freaking oppressive nature of tragedy or whatever but then never said what was wrong, never have any goddamned reason to be sad. And I just think you ought to have a reason. My girlfriend dumped me, so I'm sad. I got caught smoking, so I'm pissed off. My head hurts, so I'm cranky. She never had a reason, Pudge. I was just so tired of putting up with her drama. And I just let her go. Christ.

Now I did think, The smoke will drive the bugs away. And, to some degree, it did. I'd be lying, though, if I claimed I became a smoker to ward off insects. I became a smoker because 1. I was on an Adirondack swing by myself, and 2. I had cigarettes, and 3. I figured that if everyone else could smoke a cigarette without coughing, I could damn well, too. In short, I didn't have a very good reason. So yeah, let's just say that 4. it was the bugs. I made it through three drags before I felt nauseuos and dizzy and only semipleasantly buzzed. I got up to leave. As I stood, a voice behind me...

You're trying to find it, aren't you? I'm sure that inside your heart… you’re trying with all you might to find it on your own… the reason you were born. Because… because really… there might not be anyone who was born with a reason. I think that everyone might have to find one on their own. [in her head] A reason for being born… A reason that it’s okay to be alive… A reason to exist. [aloud] I think everyone might have to find it themselves… and decide for themselves. It could be your dreams… your job… or a person. …The reason you’re looking for… might be vague, unclear… and uncertain. [in her head] And you might lose it. [aloud] But as long as you’re alive…you have to keep searching for that reason. I'm searching too. And if I can... If I can, I want to find my reason... In someone else.

We’re searching for a reason of existence. With our own strength, because maybe the truth is that there’s no reason for life from the very beginning. Everyone hopes and tries so hard to find a reason of existence. The reason of birth, of staying with someone, of existence, believing we have to find them all with our own hands. Like finding a place for ourselves in dreams, in jobs, in people. The reasons we conclude may be indefinite and fragile. We may lose it too, but even so, we want a reason. As long as I’m alive, I want it too. If possible, I want to find a reason of existence within a person, within someone.

Too many writers write for the wrong reasons. They want to get famous or they want to get rich or they want to get laid by the girls with bluebells in their hair... When everything works best, it's not because you chose writing, but because writing chose you. It's when you're mad with it. When it's stuffed in your ears, nostrils, under your finger nails. It's when there's no hope but that.

If you’re not seeing God move in your life right now, one of two possibilities must be considered. Either your requests are not God’s best and will probably not be answered the way you’d like or it must not be the right time. If God were to answer that prayer the way you are hoping, it could interfere with his ideal plan for you.

You're never lost. You always know exactly where you are. You're right here. It's just that sometimes you've misplaced your destination. Have you ever wondered how the computer you're using got to the store? How about your medicines, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the furniture, the plants in the garden center? Do they have a railroad right there? Does merchandise magically appear? Only if you grow your own food, make your own clothes, make your own tools, cut your own wood, and make your own furniture, can you get away from trucking. Everything you see, even the nature outside in some places, has been on at least one truck.

I want to get my act together. And I want to stop needing to dress like a woman. But I just don’t have the confidence. So, that’s why I’m hopeless. (internally) My heart aches. It’s not like my parents would want to apologize all the time. I’m sure they wanted to have a child they didn’t have to bow for. A child who would make them proud. I’m sorry. (aloud) Maybe I shouldn’t even exist. I’m sure there’s no good reason that I was born. And yet I’m still alive. I really have some nerve.

Indeed I do [have a girlfriend]. She’s super cute. I’m crazy about her. So I’m not interested in Honda-san in a romantic sense. She’s on my mind for a different reason. But it concerns more than just me, so I’d like to put off telling you for just a little longer. That okay?

I then realized that it wasn’t Mardi Gras or college, it was about me going to school there. I wasn’t mad at the boy because he said his mother said not to play with me because I was a nigger. ‘If my mother said not to play with him because he was another race, I wouldn’t.’

I… There was a time when I stopped talking. Just like you. My reasons were a little bit different, but I think the feelings of being ashamed of myself and hating myself are the same. Here, it says to “like yourself.” What does that mean? Good things - how are you supposed to find them? I only know things that I hate about myself. Because that’s all I know, I hate myself. But even if you force yourself to find good things, it feels so empty. It doesn’t work that way. People like your teacher just don’t get it. I think when you hear someone say they like you, for the first time, then you can begin to like yourself. I think when someone accepts you, for the first time, you feel like you can forgive yourself a little. You can begin to face your fears with courage.
