There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Mahatma Gandhi

Life is a mirror. You get what you see. If you project anger into the mirror, that is what you
get back. If you project joy into the mirror, it reflects joy right back to you. Failure for
failure. Success for success. What you project is what is reflected back to you.
Robert G. Allen

The tragedy of life is not so much what men suffer, but rather what they miss.
Thomas Carlyle

The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
Marcus Aurelius

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and
gone. The future is not guaranteed.

Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in
car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: Some die, some get hurt, some go
on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you.
Muhammad Ali

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.

Coco Chanel

We are what we are, because of the vibrations of thought which we pick up and register,
through the stimuli of our daily environment.

credit cards.
Robert Orben

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
Robert Byrne

Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.
Danny Kaye

There are two ways you can live: you can devote your life to staying in your comfort zone,
or you can work on your freedom.
Michael A. Singer

Everything in life is a lesson. Refusing to learn the lesson means that it will be repeated until
the lesson is learned.
Larry Winget

The purpose of life is to find out "Who am I?", "Why am I here?" and "Where am I going?"
George Harrison

At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not
come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that "news" is not
something that happens to other people. He might learn how his ancestors lived and that he
himself is no different - in the crunch his life depends on his agility, alertness, and personal
resourcefulness.
Robert A. Heinlein

Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.
Steve McQueen

One can live magnificently in this world if one knows how to work and how to love.

Every day, life will send you little windows of opportunity. Your destiny will ultimately be
defined by how you respond to these windows of opportunity.

The life of every individual is really always a tragedy, but gone through in detail, it has the
character of a comedy.
Arthur Schopenhauer

Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.
Henry David Thoreau

Life is at its best when love, money, and creativity are growing in harmony.
Gay Hendricks
