Hippie sayings are a great way to express your beliefs and ideals. They’re often a reflection of what the Hippie movement was all about – peace, love, and joy. So what do you have to lose by enjoying some of these sayings? Actually, quite a lot. There’s an extended variety of free or cheap resources on the Internet that offer hippie sayings, quotes, and quotations.

Hippie sayings are very popular because they’re so easy to get hold of. I don’t know about you, but I find it much easier to stick to quotes than sayings. And the ones you may quote from, like “Happiness is a trip” or “A mind without a purpose is like a ship without sails,” aren’t exactly words that inspire me. However, I’m sure they bring happiness to others. Maybe that’s why they’re so popular.

Hippie sayings are often used at concerts, conferences, trade shows, school dances, and just about any other place where you might expect to hear hippie music. They’re great for bringing the listener back to a simpler time. When I was growing up, I remember listening to free jazz records and running to the nearest store for a copy. It really brings out the old innocence.

The free sources of hippie sayings are very diverse. If you do a quick search online, you’ll be overwhelmed with the results. In fact, if you really search hard enough, you’ll probably find a bunch of free sayings that you never knew existed.

Many people use the sayings to start a new thought or philosophy of their own. For example, one popular saying is “The sky is the limit.” This says that anyone can do anything they put their mind to. If you put your mind to it, you can make your dreams come true and go anywhere you want to. If you’re willing to take that leap, you can accomplish anything you set out to do.

A Much Ado

Hippie sayings are often quoted by famous individuals. You can find them being said by such notable figures as John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Ava Gardner, Henry Kissinger, and Allen Ginsberg. And don’t think for a second that only people in the “hippie” movement are the ones using them. Anyone can come up with their own silly sayings.

Where can you find these sayings? There are many books devoted to this topic. And even if you don’t want to read one, there are lots of websites dedicated to the topic. Go to one of the search engines and type in “hippie sayings.” You’ll be surprised at the number of results that come up.

So if you’re searching for the perfect way to get in touch with the kids from the era, or just to put some thought into how you’re going to feel in the coming days, try looking for funny sayings. They’re sure to bring a smile to your face. Just don’t overdo it. Too many words can clutter your mind and make you feel dumb. Keep it clean.

If you’re looking for hippie sayings for your next party, try some sayings related to food. “Don’t tell me what you’re doing; show me your food.” Or perhaps, “A party is a party whether you have fun or not.” These sayings can really spice up any party.

A lot of these sayings also reflect a bit of humor. Take, for example, the old saying, “Don’t blame me, blame the cat.” This has a touch of humor. But then again, you can’t take away everything. Don’t fall into the trap of comparing hippies to cats, either.

If you’re looking for sayings that have more meaning, try the ones that refer to certain ideals. For example, one list that I found has sayings such as “All who stand with me will win.” On another list, they say, “Love does not conquer hate.” Both statements are idealistic, positive messages. And that’s just the beginning. If you find the idealism and positive messages in the hippie sayings, you can be sure that those two traits are present in the People’s Republic of China.

Bottom Line

Hippie items are readily available in other areas as well. So if you’re looking for hippie decor, you’ll be able to find many different options. Hippie clothes and posters, handmade t-shirts, music, art, and other items are widely available through craft stores and online stores as well. But, be sure to get a good look at the hippie products before purchasing them.
