8 Powerful Introvert Quotes

Take a look at these quotes and the brief lessons attached to each.

“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

Stephen Hawking.

This quote, made famous by Stephen Hawking, best explains that if you’re a quiet person, don’t let it be a disadvantage. You may have a loud mind and just need to find the right way to express it!

“I think a lot, but I don’t say much.”

Anne Frank, 1952.

This quote from Anne Frank reminds us that we don’t have to be loud to be heard. We all have a voice, but we don’t have to use it all the time. In fact, sometimes waiting can make our words even more powerful!

“There is a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog.”

Drew Barrymore.

Drew Barrymore once said this: we can’t help but think that we can enjoy our own company and that there is no shame in doing so! Sometimes being alone is what you need to recharge your batteries and feel good about yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you differently!

“If you like to do things in a slow and steady way, don’t let others make you feel as if you have to race. If you enjoy depth, don’t force yourself to seek breadth.”

Susan Cain, ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, 2012.

This quote from Susan Cain is meant to remind us that we all have our own pace and that it’s important not to be rushed by other people’s expectations of how quickly we should move through life. There’s no such sample of too fast or too slow. You just need to figure out your own rhythm and run with it.

“Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, which is not afraid of their own company, which are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse them with, and something to judge.”

Paulo Coelho, ‘Manuscript Found in Accra,’ 2012.

Paulo Coelho wants to teach us that when you are alone, you can have the time to reflect on your life and make decisions that are best for you. The people who choose to spend more time alone tend to be happier because they don’t feel pressured by the expectations of others; instead, they can focus on themselves and their own needs.

“Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.”

Pablo Picasso.

The famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso aims to tell us that sometimes you have to spend time alone, doing nothing but thinking and dreaming, to be able to create something truly special. When you’re by yourself, you can focus on the things that matter, the stuff that goes on in your head when you’re not distracted by other people or things.

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

Abraham Lincoln

The lesson behind this quote from Abraham Lincoln is that sometimes it’s better to listen and learn than it is to speak up and be wrong.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t speak up when you feel like something just isn’t right. You should! But if you’re not sure about something, or if there are two sides to an argument, then it can be better for everyone involved if you keep quiet and watch how things play out.

“Writing is something you do alone. It’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don’t want to make eye contact while doing it.”

John Green, ‘Thoughts from Places: The Tour,’ 2012.

The famous writer John Green took us into the world of writers, saying that writing is a solitary activity. When we’re writing, we don’t need to be distracted by other people or things. We can focus on our work and keep going until we’ve reached our goal.

It also emphasizes how important it is, to be honest and genuine when you write, not just because it will make your writing more interesting but also because honesty is powerful.
