Life quotes page 3

A useless life is an early death.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one
you are capable of living.
Nelson Mandela

The big secret in life is that there is no big secret.
Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.
Oprah Winfrey

The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything.
Frank Sinatra

Life is truly a ride. We're all strapped in and no one can stop it. When the doctor slaps your
behind, he's ripping your ticket and away you go. As you make each passage from youth to
adulthood to maturity, sometimes you put your arms up and scream, sometimes you just hang
on to that bar in front of you. But the ride is the thing. I think the most you can hope for at
the end of life is that your hair's messed, you're out of breath, and you didn't throw up.
Jerry Seinfeld

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
Albert Einstein

Is not life a hundred times too short for us to bore ourselves?
Friedrich Nietzsche

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

My general attitude to life is to enjoy every minute of every day. I never do anything with a
feeling of, "Oh God, I've got to do this today."
Sir Richard Branson

The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure much.
William Hazlitt

What can you do right now to turn your life around? Gratitude.
Rhonda Byrne

Life responds to deserve and not to need. It doesn't say, "If you need, you will reap." It
says, If you plant, you will reap." The guy says, "I really need to reap." Then you really need
to plant.
Jim Rohn

Life's a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!
Lucille Ball

If everyone who had a gun just shot themselves, there wouldn't be a problem.
George Harrison

Life can be wonderful if you're not afraid of it. All it takes is courage, imagination... and a
little dough.
Charlie Chaplin

It's a shallow life that doesn't give a person a few scars.
Garrison Keillor

Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the
risk of doing nothing.
Denis Waitley

Sometimes life's going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that
the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.
Steve Jobs

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
Nelson Mandela

Our obligation is to give meaning to life and in doing so to overcome the passive, indifferent
life.
Elie Wiesel

You don't get in life what you want. You get what you are.
Les Brown

In whatever position you find yourself, determine first your objective.
Ferdinand Foch

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 befriend. The beauty of
life is to give.
William Arthur Ward

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
John F. Kennedy

If you're appropriately engaged with your life, you don't need more time. If you're not, more
time won't won't help.
David Allen

The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure much.
William Hazlitt

Say YES to life. Participate. Move. Act. Write. Read. Sign up. Take a stand. Or do whatever
it takes for you. Get involved in the process. As Rollo May wrote in Man's Search for Himself:
"Every organism has one and only one central need in life, to fulfill its own potentialities."
Susan Jeffers

Total absence of humour renders life impossible.
Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette

I certainly don't have the answers to all life's problems. While physics and mathematics may
tell how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behaviour because
there are far too many equations to solve. I am no better than anyone else at understanding
what makes people tick, particularly women.
Stephen Hawking

To live a great life: Get paid to do your passion. Marry someone amazing. Take great care of
your health. Give back!
Sean Stephenson

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his
attitude.
William James

If man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
Martin Luther King Jr.

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be
loved.
Kurt Vonnegut
