I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Insignificance from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.

And never, never, to forget.
