I’m not sure if these quotes qualify as truly famous quotes but what they do qualify as are quotes that truly capture the essence of the Libra personality.
Keep in mind that there are many different aspects to Libra traits and characteristics. There are many types of Libras.
These quotes all point to the unrefined or unpolished Libra. As you can already probably tell, reading the rest of this blog, as different signs of the horoscope mature, different aspects of their personality come out.
Life Quotes and Libra Signs
A lot of this is due to different life situations, circumstances and things often out of their control. Still, there is a lot of choice involved. You can turn into the person that you choose to turn into.
It is all about choice. As much as your astrological sign tends to point you or drive you towards a certain direction, that does not necessarily mean that that is your only destiny.
You can choose the final destination or the final shape of your personality. Keep this in mind when going through the five famous Libra quotes and sayings below.
Go along to get along
If there is any one personality trait to describe typical Libras, it would be getting along. Libras can definitely get along in any type of social situation. They are very fluid, they are very adaptable, and it is not uncommon for Libras to do well in all types of social situations and social gatherings.
This should come as no surprise because Libras have a personality configuration where they can look at many different sides of people and many different sides of a particular situation.
They, of course, tend to gravitate towards the path of least resistance.
This is why Libras are very fluid in any type of social situation.
They can easily become the life of the party, they can easily become the sidekick of the life of the party, they are very versatile in many types of social situations and they tend to stay on the surface.
What you see is what you get
Usually, when people look at different personalities, people are usually looking for depth. People are usually looking for some sort of deep meaningful truth in the lives of people that they come across. This is, after all, what makes life worth living. This is what makes life so rich and so interesting. Well, with the Libra, what you see is what you get.
In other words, the person in front of you, the personality type, the mind-set, the attitude, it is pretty much all there. This can be a good thing, but for people who are looking to take things to the next level to go deeper, this might be quite troubling.
This might seem like the person in front of you is very superficial and shallow. It is not uncommon for Libras to judge people primarily just by what they can see. They do not really give much credit to truly knowing people or to truly understanding people. All they need is a few key points of information, and they have enough to make a judgment. Which kind of goes against the typical Libra tendency to weigh things heavily.
In fact, it is not uncommon for them to get stuck in a decision process called analysis paralysis. However, they can get quite superficial and shallow, and most disturbingly, stay there.
Often times, you can judge a book by its cover
In keeping with the second quote, this quote usually refers to how Libras think, as much as they like to pride themselves into being deliberate and deep thinkers, if you really judge them by how they act, they tend to focus on a few details at the surface and stay there. They might look at certain things the person that they are analysing has done in the past, and then that is all they need to make a decision. There is a certain emotional and intellectual laziness that goes with this territory, and unfortunately, it is very hard for Libras to get past the surface.
This is why they can make all sorts of judgment, all sorts of conclusions, all sorts of associations just by looking at the cover. This can be annoying to many people, however, this can also be quite useful when making a snap decision. Unfortunately, Libras can only make a decision up to a certain point and cannot get past that point. They are very famous for being almost unable to make a decision.
Be careful if you dig too far, there might not be anything there
One of the biggest challenges of the Libra is to break their tendency to get stuck at certain shallow levels of analysis. Call it intellectual laziness, call it a force of habit, whatever you call it, they get stuck at the surface.
This is why they would like to think, in terms of this quote, that if you dig too far there might not be anything there. In other words, trying to know a person in a truly spiritual and deep philosophical level, is not worth the bother because either they are too lazy or it just involves many other factors that they would rather not deal with.
Measure twice, cut once
This quote really cuts to the core of what hold many Libras back. Libras, contrary to popular belief, are not truly lazy. A truly lazy person runs away from physical effort.
A truly lazy person is really driven by fear. Libras are lazy in the sense that they get stuck in this analytical feedback loop, and they do not know when to stop. It is one thing to weigh both sides of an issue, it is one thing to look at different sides of the picture, but at a certain point in time you have to get off the fence. At a certain point in time you have to pull the trigger. Libras can never bring themselves to do that. That is why they go through this loop again and again and again.
They would like to say that this is all about measuring twice and cutting once. Well, this traditional saying is actually a very good saying, it is very prudent, and it is very wise. However, the way it is employed by many Libras really does not lead anywhere and usually is used as an excuse for intellectual laziness. It is also used as an excuse for never taking any action. Closely related to that, it is not uncommon for Libras to quickly blame other people for their inability to make a decision and to take positive action in their lives.
