You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.
Best Quotes about Life
The person who does not know how to live while they are making a living is a poorer person after their wealth is won than when they started.
Holland, Josiah Gilbert
Life has taught me to think, but thinking has not taught me to live.
The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.
Shinn, Florence Scovel
If you believed more in life you would fling yourself less to the moment.
Life is a state of mind.
Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith.
One of the most appalling comments on our present way of life is that half of all the beds in our hospitals are reserved for patients with nervous and mental troubles, patients who have collapsed under the crushing burden of accumulated yesterdays and fearful tomorrows. Yet a vast majority of those people would be walking the streets today, leading happy, useful lives, if they had only heeded the words of Jesus: Have no anxiety about the morrow; or the words of Sir William Osler; Live in day-tight compartments.
America is a nation with no truly national city, no Paris, no Rome, no London, no city which is at once the social center, the political capital, and the financial hub.
Mills, C. Wright
Man spends his life in reasoning on the past, in complaining of the present, in fearing future.
He that embarks on the voyage of life will always wish to advance rather by the impulse of the wind than the strokes of the oar; and many fold in their passage; while they lie waiting for the gale.
Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you.
One should not confuse the craving for life with endorsement of it.
Life at the greatest and best is but a froward child, that must be humored and coaxed a little till it falls asleep, and then all the care is over.
In Washington, the first thing people tell you is what their job is. In Los Angeles you learn their star sign. In Houston you're told how rich they are. And in New York they tell you what their rent is.
When I consider life, it is all a cheat. Yet fooled with hope, people favor this deceit.
After reading all that has been written, and after thinking all that can be thought, on the topics of God and the soul, the man who has a right to say that he thinks at all, will find himself face to face with the conclusion that, on these topics, the most profound thought is that which can be the least easily distinguished from the most superficial sentiment.
Poe, Edgar Allan
Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really merely commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the planning, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chain of events, working through generations and leading to the most outer results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.
Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan
There is no shortcut to life. To the end of our days, life is a lesson imperfectly learned.
She fights and vanquishes in me, and I live and breathe in her, and I have life and being.
Cervantes, Miguel De
The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.
Wright, Frank Lloyd
Living in cities is an art, and we need the vocabulary of art, of style, to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living. The city as we imagine it, then, soft city of illusion, myth, aspiration, and nightmare, is as real, maybe more real, than the hard city one can locate on maps in statistics, in monographs on urban sociology and demography and architecture.
Life -- how curious is that habit that makes us think it is not here, but elsewhere.
Pritchett, V. S.
Accept life, take it as it is? Stupid. The means of doing otherwise? Far from our having to take it, it is life that possesses us and on occasion shuts our mouths.
Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.
Life never becomes a habit to me. It's always a marvel.
This tattered life is my only robe; the wind my only refuge.
Is this not the true romantic feeling; not to desire to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping you.
Life is a fatal complaint, and an eminently contagious one.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Life is at its best when it's shaken and stirred.
Facult, F. Paul
There are nine requisites for contented living: HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure; WEALTH enough to support your needs; STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them; GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them; PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished; CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor; LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others; FAITH enough to make real the things of God; HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
No city should be too large for a man to walk out of in a morning.
Life is something you do when you can't get to sleep.
We dribble away our life, little by little, in small packages -- we don't throw it away all at once.
Cook, Robert A.
I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.
You really haven't changed, you've just become more of yourself. That is really what were all trying to do: become more of ourselves.
New York is an exciting town where something is happening all the time, most unsolved.
A large city cannot be experientially known; its life is too manifold for any individual to be able to participate in it.
Prepare for death, if here at night you roam, and sign your will before you sup from home.
Life is divided up into the horrible and the miserable.
Life is an uphill business for the guy who's not on the level.
Life is a long lesson in humility.
James M. Barrie
Through this broad street, restless ever, ebbs and flows a human tide, wave on wave a living river; wealth and fashion side by side; Toiler, idler, slave and master, in the same quick current glide.
Whittier, John Greenleaf
I have done my fiddling so long under Vesuvius that I have almost forgotten to play, and can only wait for the eruption and think it long of coming. Literally no man has more wholly outlived life than I. And still it's good fun.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when. You can decide how you're going to live now.
I once spent a year in Philadelphia, I think it was on a Sunday.
Fields, W. C.
Cities, like cats, will reveal themselves at night.
The cities of America are inexpressibly tedious. The Bostonians take their learning too sadly; culture with them is an accomplishment rather than an atmosphere; their Hub, as they call it, is the paradise of prigs. Chicago is a sort of monster-shop, full of bustles and bores. Political life at Washington is like political life in a suburban vestry. Baltimore is amusing for a week, but Philadelphia is dreadfully provincial; and though one can dine in New York one could not dwell there.
Paris is the caf? of Europe.
We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from it.
Osler, Sir William
What is a city, but the people; true the people are the city.
