Russell Brand is a talented actor, author and activist known to follow his passions and live a little less than ordinary life.
He has sparked much controversy surrounding his lifestyle, his transparency about his drug abuse struggles, and his lectures on politics and activism!
Today we are looking at some of Brand’s most inspiring quotes about life, love, happiness and finding meaning, and we hope they will lift your spirits as much as they did ours!
Russell Brand on living in the moment
“Every moment is a fresh new beginning, a wonderful inauguration of the great cosmic journey through the universe. We can do whatever we want. We can change reality at any moment.”
No matter what happened yesterday, today is always a new day. What that means is an opportunity for new beginnings. Every moment brings the option of doing the same thing as yesterday or trying something new; the choice is yours. So no matter what you did yesterday or what happened, it doesn’t have to be that way today. Make today new, fresh and let it be the beginning of something extraordinary!
Russell Brand on Contentment
“My Modus Operandi is that I’ll be content with anything as long as I know it’s the best possible.”
For some people, the grass is always greener on the other side.
You get a job and earn your place—but you’re not making much. You know you’ll be happy once you make more money. Then you get a raise, and everything seems to be going well until you realise that you’re lonely—and if that perfect guy or special lady would come along, you’d finally be happy. But you never are.
Contentment gets a bad rap in our world today. A lot of people think of it as laziness or apathy. But that’s not contentment.
Our world is addicted to a mentality of “bigger is better” and “what’s next?” So the idea of just slowing down and enjoying what you have right before you before moving on to the next thing might seem foreign to some people, but it is the key to happiness.

Russell Brand on Forgiveness
“You have to forgive everyone for everything. You can’t cling on to any blame that you may be using to make sense of the story of your life.”
Forgiveness means different things to different people. Generally, however, it involves letting go of resentment and thoughts of revenge. The act that hurt or offended you might always be with you, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help free you from the control of the person who harmed you. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.
Our entire body-mind suffers when we hold onto resentment, grievance, shame, guilt, or pain from the past. Ultimately forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves. We can benefit from forgiving even if the person we forgive isn’t aware of our feelings or is no longer alive.
To forgive someone is the highest, most beautiful form of love. You might just find that you get a sense of peace and happiness in return.
… and on believing in your dreams
“See all these buildings, Russell? All these buildings were once a drawing on a piece of paper, and before that, they were an idea in someone’s head. Any idea that you have, you can make manifest.”
Many people have trouble seeing the potential of their dreams; they give up on them because they don’t know how they will ever come true. They just can’t see how taking the time to discover and plan will impact the dreams coming true. Have patience! Although your vision may not have come to pass, it can still be realised. You can still make your dreams a reality. This is how MY NU WAYS! It came to life! It is a fulfilment of our dreams! And yes, it needed patience! You also can manifest what you want, and if you’re ready to start this journey, click here!
