Readers and Authors Use Famous Quotations as a Source of Inspiration
If after reading a quote you have found yourself saying: “I wish I wrote that!” Or believe someone else said it best, therefore there is no need for you to say it again – we have the article template for you.
Famous quotations, words of wisdom, idioms, and proverbs are a great way to engage the reader and share your personal story that either proves the words of wisdom or disproves them.
Some common expressions and words of wisdom can be “spot on” and teach us life lessons so we don’t have to make the same mistakes others have made in the past.
In other cases, we learn that some words of wisdom may be inaccurate based on our own experience. This is something definitely worth sharing.
Either way, if some personal experience in your niche reminds you of words of wisdom you have heard in the past, you can write an article about that experience.
Let’s get started with the Words of Wisdom Article Template:
- Share the Quote in Your Introduction: Lead the article off with the quote you are going to be discussing and share who said the quote originally. Provide a brief explanation of what it means (or its intended meaning). If it is a fairly uncommon quote, you may want to provide a brief background or context for the reader.
- Tell Your Story: Show readers how you found the words of wisdom to either be true or false, don’t tell (i.e. “I did this and then this happened…”). You can show readers your story by maintaining a conversational tone to keep readers engaged and providing them with important and descriptive details.
- Explain the Lesson: Reiterate what you learned from your experience. If the words of wisdom didn’t really speak to you, explain why.
- Recap Your Thoughts: Conclude your thoughts about the original words of wisdom by outlining the key points of your lesson and whether you felt the quote was accurate or inaccurate. Give your readers one last push by helping them see your story from a different perspective.
Consider this template when you are ready to pass on your own words of wisdom about your niche. Come back here and let us know how it worked for you! Who knows? Maybe someone else will be quoting your articles in the near future!
