About This Quiz

You've heard them many times before, maybe even to the point where these quotes have lost their meaning to you. However, when you take a moment to look at them with fresh eyes, their brilliance becomes crystal clear. After all, a cliche is simply a saying that is so meaningful to so many people that it has become a nearly unconscious part of the culture.

Maybe you're the kind of person who is drawn to self-improvement and making the world a better place through your personal growth. If that's the case, there's a quote rooted deeply in eastern philosophy that we think is a perfect fit for you.

Perhaps you have struggled with what seems like a never-ending succession of heartache and tragedy, but you always find the courage and strength to pick yourself up and keep going. If that's you, there's a school-of-hard-knocks quote that we think totally fits.

Or you might be the life of the party, someone who loves to dream and live life to the absolute fullest. For you, there's a quote from an artist's perspective that has your name all over it.

You might also be the kind of person who is a realist, someone who knows that there is suffering in life and therefore chooses your path and friendships carefully. For you, we've got a wise philosophy from a musician and iconic figure that should be right up your alley.
