Life is like riding a bicycle. You don't fall off unless you stop peddling.
I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand Life is good today.
Zac Brown Band
The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and I could say, 'I used everything that you gave me.'
Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find "tomorrow" on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, If I had my life to live over again. Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
There are four things you cannot recover in life: The stone after it's thrown. The word after it's said. The occasion after it's missed. The time after it's gone.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. We must come to see that no individual can live alone. We must all live together; we must all be concerned about each other.
Martin Luther King Jr., commencement address at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania
The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to be friend. The beauty of life is to give.
William Arthur Ward
Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rules.
J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, spoken by Mr. Spencer
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.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth, 5.5
