The importance of positive quotes in a society is that they inspire people to have positive thoughts and do good things. Positive quotes motivate people to do things they thought were impossible, such as getting an education, overcoming discrimination, and emotional, mental and physical issues. Positive quotes in a society move people to achieve success and overcome failure and can change the direction of someone's life. Sometimes, an inspirational quote can spark a societal shift for the better.

Religious and political leaders, artists, philosophers and authors have written numerous positive quotes about society. Many positive quotes come from people who have faced discrimination, overcame great obstacles and done great things, such as Maya Angelou, Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad Ali and Martin Luther King Jr.

Maya Angelou said, “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope." Abraham Lincoln said, "When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion."

Muhammad Ali said, " I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was." Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." These quotes have inspired entire movements and individuals.
