|Life is wasted on the living.
There are three great events in our lives: birth, life and death.
Of birth we have no conscience; with death, we suffer; and,
concerning life, we forget to live it.
Jean de La Bruyère
When life gives you lemons, cut them in half and squirt life
in the eye!
In three words I can sum up what I've learned about life: it
All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
In spite of the cost of living, it's still popular.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about
learning to dance in the rain.
We dont live as we wish, but as we can.
Life isnt tied with a bow, but its still a gift.
Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.
How many lives we live in one,
And how much less than one, in all.
You can only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt,
dance like nobody's watching. and live like it's heaven on earth.
Born to be wild - live to outgrow it.
However many ways there may be of being alive, it is certain
that there are vastly more ways of being dead, or rather not
To me, if life boils down to one thing, it's movement. To live
is to keep moving.
Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time and
sometimes you weep.
Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly
and forgive quickly.
That it will never come again Is what makes life so sweet.
A beautiful flower begins its life in the dirt.
About all you can do in life is be who you are.
Rita Mae Brown
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives
fully is prepared to die at any time.
A mans dying is more a survivors affair than his
Death is to stop sinning suddenly.
The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for
there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.
We should always have our boots on, and be ready to leave.
There is no cure for birth and death unless to enjoy the interval.
People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the
huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at
the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the
stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.
I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling
catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living
to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen
my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose
to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as
seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me
as blossom, goes on as fruit.
Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes
you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world
needs is people who have come alive.
I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark
should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled
by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of
me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall
not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than
luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not
respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes
and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is
to be my symphony.
William Ellery Channing
O, with what freshness,
what solemnity and beauty,
is each new day born;
as if to say to insensate man,
thou hast one more chance!
Strive for immortal glory!'
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete.
If you're alive, it isn't.
