Albert Einstein once said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” It means that everyone is a genius in his or her way. Everyone cannot be intelligent in the same field. Hence, if a person is going to be a singer, he can never become a successful cricketer because he is simply not cut out for it. Moreover, a person should be a man of his abilities and talents.

But if you are at peace, you are living in the present.” Lao Tzu, a Chinese philosopher and writer, gave this quote to the world.

As opposed to that, if you keep worrying for the future to come, you will always be full of anxiety as you cannot change either past or future.

Eventually, they started buying things that were not necessary to change people they did not approve of. It shows the fickle nature of the human mind.

14. Success Quote Wallpaper:

15. Walt Disney Wallpaper:

Inspirational Quotes - Dreams

Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” It means that if we are willing to do everything it takes to make our dreams come true, they are bound to come true, and success is inevitable. Walt Disney was an American writer and animator who put all his efforts into his animations. He had dyslexia and was not able to read and write like ordinary people around him.

Tim Notke Wallpaper

Tim Notke has been a high school basketball coach who said, “Hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard.” It means that it takes talent and hard work to be successful. And if a talented person does not work hard and thinks that he can succeed merely based on his ability, then he is proven wrong. A hardworking person can have more success than a talented person because he works hard. Hence, success follows the one who works hard, and not the talented one. Talent can bring you success only if you put hard work along with the expertise.

18. Ann Landers Quote Wallpaper:

Inspirational Wallpaper - Opportunity

Ann Landers was a pen name of Chicago Sun-Times advice columnist, Ruth Crowley. She wrote this quote “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.” It means that if you work hard, you will have many opportunities, and new avenues open up to you. Hard work will take you places and will make you a successful person. But, because people are afraid or lazy of being a hard worker, they often fail to identify an opportunity that looks like a lot of hard work.

19. Be Better Wallpaper:

Be Better Wallpaper

A quote from an unknown person goes like this- “Don’t be the same, be better.” It means that you always have to evolve and to change to a better version of yourself. You can’t afford to remain the same person over the years. You have to adapt the change and turn yourself into a better human being. According to Shrimad Bhagwad Gita, Lord Krishna says that the only permanent thing is, change. Hence, the change should not be feared. It should be welcome with open hands, wholeheartedly.

Change is the nature of evolution. And the more you evolve, the more you become a better version of yourself. If you are adaptable to change, nothing can defeat you. A tree gets uprooted when a cyclone hits the forest. But the grass remains rooted in the ground. The reason is that the tree fails to change according to the changing weather and stands stiffly and proudly. The grass never gets uprooted because it surrenders to the changing climate and grows back once the cyclone has passed away.


We covered a lot of inspirational and motivational wallpapers in this blog. The only thing about these wallpapers is, they are useful only if they motivate you. If you fail to work hard, these wallpapers are of no use. Hence, you should keep yourself motivated, inspired, and hardworking even in times of adversity and failures. That’s the only way to survive.
