37 Ultimate Dr Wayne Dyer Quotes

My beloved guru Dr Wayne Dyer died on the 30th August 2015, leaving behind a legacy that will continue to enlighten and inspire for many years to come.

My love of this great man began when I was given a CD of his beautiful ‘Everyday Wisdom’ by my sister a few years ago. Since then I have read a number of his books, including the story of his exceptional life ‘I Can See Clearly Now’, and I was due to hear him speak in a conference in London October 2015 – just 1 month from now.

I have listened to his enlightening, eloquent words often and wish to share a few of my favourite Wayne Dyer quotes with you now. I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired me. 

1. “Each time you send love in response to hate, you diffuse the hate.”

I am realistic - I expect miracles - Wayne Dyer

Miracles are waiting for you!

2. “Circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him.”

3. “Nothing you imagine in your mind is impossible”.

4. “Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.”

5. “Upon awakening, let the words Thank You flow from your lips, for this will remind you to begin your day with gratitude and compassion.”

6. “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”

7. “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself - Wayne Dyer

How will you define yourself?

8. “You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”

9. “When you have the choice between being right and being kind just choose kind.”

10. “A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe. “

11. “Practice being the kind of person you wish to attract.”

love what you do, do what you love - wayne dyer

What are you waiting for?

12. “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.”

13. “The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.”

14. “You are not a human being having a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being having a human experience.”

15. “Love empowers you to higher levels.”

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you are alone with - Wayne Dyer

How do you feel when you are alone?

16. “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”

17. “There is no such thing as a nervous breakdown. People choose to break down.”

18. “We can only give away to others what we have inside ourselves. If you have love inside of you, love for yourself, then that is what you will give away. If you have contempt for yourself, then that is what you will give away.”

Go for it now. The future is promised to no one. Wayne dyer

What are you waiting for?

19. “Be willing to let anything happen.”

20. “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”

21. “Forgiveness if an act of self-love. No one has ever died from a snake bite. They die from the venom which continues to pour through the system long after the bite took place. You can’t be ‘unbitten’ but you can choose not to have the venom flowing through you. When you rid yourself of the venom and forgive, you are truly acting as a loving being.”

22. “This is a ‘uni-verse’. Uni = One. Verse = Song. One Song.”

You will see it when you believe it - Wayne Dyer

Are you ready to BELIEVE it?

23. “Believe it and you will see it.”

24. “Anything you must have, owns you. Ironically, when you release it, you get more of it.”

25. “Whatever the question, love is the answer.”

26. “If you are to change a habit, you must be the treatment. The treatment isn’t something that happens to you, it is something that you are.”

27. “No one can create anger or stress within you, only you can do that by virtue of how you process the world.”

28. “Blame is a neat little device that you can use to avoid all responsibility for something in your life. Use it, and you will avoid all risks and impede your own growth.”

29. “I will fill myself with love and I will send that out into the world. How others treat me is their path. How I react is mine.”

Life is not a rehearsal. The future is not guaranteed. Wayne Dyer

Is it finally time for you to start living NOW?

30. “Every obstacle is an opportunity. Every obstacle is a test. Keep in mind that life gives exams.”

31. “Each place along the way is somewhere you had to be in order to be here now.”

32. “Emotions are choices.”

33.  “See the light in others and treat them as if that is all you see.”

See the light in others and treat them as if that is all you see - Wayne Dyer

Can you see the light waiting for you in others?

34. “Learn to find a blessing in pain. Practice observing the pain rather than owning it.”

35. “All the abundance is already here. You simply have to tune in.”

36. “Realise the journey and the goal are always the same.”

37. “I will fill myself with love and send that out into the world. How others treat me is their path. How I react is mine.”

You can listen to this Everyday Wisdom quotes on YouTube if you prefer – it is beautiful to hear the wisdom in his soothing voice.


To an incredibly special soul and to a great teacher:- may you journey onwards in joy and love. I am infinitely grateful for the light you have shone in the world and in my life.

    Great collection of Wayne Dyer thoughts.

    I have been a follower of Dr. Wayne Dyer for many years now. The first time I discovered him, I was in a very pivotal and rough part of my life. With his teachings, I was able to shift myself out of that ‘rut and manfest great things.

    He will be missed, but won’t be forgotten.

    I discovered Wayne Dyer in 2013, when a dear friend introduced me to his philosophy with the “Power of Intention”.
    Since then, he has been my inspiration, my mentor, the reason I’m becoming a better person every single day.
    I still have a long way but I feel so happy that he helped me see things differently. I was hoping that I will meet him some day, in this life, guess this will have to wait now 🙂
    Thank you for sharing his quotes, I always listen to him on Youtube and meditate. I also feel connected to anyone that has the same love for Wayne and I hope that with people like him, like you, we will find a way to change this troubled world. Bless you!

    1. Jess Post author

      Absolutely! I feel the same way when I meet another person who loves Wayne Dyer! He is such a special soul and he lives on in us. We are a spark of him and the divine <3 With love, Jess

    I am a bit late in commenting to this post. Sorry.

    Like another commenter wrote, I too discovered Dr. Wayne Dyer in 2013, during one of the lowest points of my life. The fact that I stumbled upon Dr. Dyer, during that difficult time, (I feel), is no coincidence. Our Higher Power always sends us what we need, when we need it. I own several of Dr. Dyer’s books, which I keep on my nightstand. His books are my “Bible”, if you will. I am a Buddhist and Dr. Dyer’s wisdom/teachings align beautifully with Buddhism. Through his teachings I have learned to let go of so much.

    I will never forget what Dr. Dyer said during his 2013 seminar. He said, “How people treat you is their karma, how you respond is yours.” He also gave sage advice if someone is being rude to you. Rather than respond by giving rudeness back, he advised to ask the person how their day is going and if everything is ok, as this will show you care that they are having a bad day. I’ve tried that method since and in most cases it works like a charm. Dr. Dyer is correct, sometimes people just need to know someone cares.

    Additionally, through his teachings, I learned that if someone says or does something hurtful, I do not have to own it, because what that person said/did is on them — not me.

    Anyway. Thanks to Dr. Dyer, I try to live as authentically as I can.

    It’s all any of us can do, right? 🙂

    Dr. Dyer is sorely missed.

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
