Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
E. B. White
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.
Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?
The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.
George Washington Carver
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life define yourself.
George Bernard Shaw
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
Sai Baba of Shirdi
Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.
