Life quotes page 4

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
Paulo Coelho

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"
Martin Luther King Jr.

We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.
Marilyn Monroe

Life does not consist in thinking, it consists in acting.
Woodrow Wilson

If you live your life like most people do, you will get what most people get. You will settle for
what most people settle for. Here's a taste of "most people." Forty-nine percent of marriages
now end in divorce. Eighty percent of people working today would rather be in another line of
work. More than fifty percent of Americans are overweight. One out of three will get cancer
while two out of five will suffer from heart disease. More than sixty percent of Americans,
living in the richest, most abundant civilization in history, will retire with little or no savings,
dependent on so-called "entitlements" for survival. If you want to lead an extraordinary life,
find out what the ordinary do and don't do it. That is a simple but true formula. Remember, no
one plans to become mediocre. Mediocrity is the result of no plan at all.
Tommy Newberry

Life is never fair. And perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not.
Oscar Wilde

While there's life, there's hope.
Cicero

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead!
Charles Bukowski

Life must be kept up at a great rate in order to absorb any considerable amount of learning.
Robert Frost

Unexpected intrusions of beauty. That is what life is.
Saul Bellow

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy
each step along the way.
Wayne Dyer

To grow and still to grow, that is the law of life. What other law can there be?
H. G. Wells

I know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and the impossible.
Friedrich Nietzsche

I adore life. What do all the fools matter and all the stupidity? They do matter but somehow
for me they cannot touch the body of life. Life is marvellous. I want to be deeply rooted in it
- to live - to expand - to breathe in it - to rejoice - to share it. To give and to be asked for
love.
Katherine Mansfield

Every human life contains a potential, if that potential is not fulfilled, then that life was
wasted.
Carl Jung

Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
Horace

People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do
is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it – walk!
Ayn Rand

In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
Anthony Robbins

Many people die with their music still in them. Too often it is because they are always getting
ready to live. Before they know it time runs out.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width
and depth.
H. L. Mencken

That's the trouble with life - crap dialogue and bad lighting.
Elizabeth Taylor

What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled
world a better place to live in after we are gone?
Sir Winston Churchill

Life is about enjoying yourself and having a good time.
Cher

I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
Rita Mae Brown

God, or Life, is no respecter of persons. Life plays no favorites. Life, or God, seems to favor
you when you align yourself with the principle of harmony, health, joy, and peace.
Joseph Murphy

One of the mistakes many of us make is that we feel sorry for ourselves, or for others,
thinking that life should be fair, or that someday it will be. It's not and it won't.
Richard Carlson

Life is pure adventure and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life
as art.
Maya Angelou

Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.
Samuel Butler

The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it's
real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round
and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun,
for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question:
"Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back
to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride." And we
kill those people.
Bill Hicks

The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh
or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache.
Marjorie Pay Hinckley
