Life

Life is a glass given to us to fill; a busy life is filling it with as much as it can hold; a hurried life has had more poured into it than it can contain.
- Brown, William Adams
Life Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Life

1.
Life is very interesting if you make mistakes.
Carpentier, Georges

2.
Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.
William Shakespeare

3.
He who is not busy being born is busy dying.
Dylan, Bob

4.
In real life, however, you don't react to what someone did; you react only to what you think she did, and the gap between action and perception is bridged by the art of impression management. If life itself is but what you deem it, then why not focus your efforts on persuading others to believe that you are a virtuous and trustworthy cooperator?
Jonathan Haidt

5.
Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
Roosevelt, Eleanor

6.
Life is a long lesson in humility.
James M. Barrie

7.
Life without meaning cannot be borne. We find a mission to which we're sworn

8.
Life is just a journey
Diana, Princess of Wales

9.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
The slightest living thing answers a deeper need than all the works of man because it is transitory. It has an evanescence of life, or growth, or change: it passes, as we do, from one stage to the another, from darkness to darkness, into a distance where we, too, vanish out of sight. A work of art is static; and its value and its weakness lie in being so: but the tuft of grass and the clouds above it belong to our own travelling brotherhood.
Stark, Freya

11.
Life is a little gleam of time between two eternity s.
Carlyle, Thomas

12.
Birth, copulation and death. That's all the facts when you come to the brass tacks.
Eliot, T. S.

13.
Life never becomes a habit to me. It's always a marvel.
Mansfield, Katherine

14.
The person lives twice who lives the first life well.
Herrick, Robert

15.
Life is raw material. We are artisans. We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful, or debase it into ugliness. It's in our hands.
Better, Cathy

16.
Always take hold of things by the smooth handle.
Jefferson, Thomas

17.
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
Curie, Madame Marie

18.
The sad souls of those who lived without blame and without praise.
Dante Alighieri

19.
Anything for the quick life, as the man said when he took the situation at the lighthouse.
Dickens, Charles

20.
Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.
Clark, Frank A.

21.
Life. A spiritual pickle preserving the body from decay.
Bierce, Ambrose

22.
Life is indeed difficult, partly because of the real difficulties we must overcome in order to survive, and partly because of our own innate desire to always do better, to overcome new challenges, to self-actualize. Happiness is experienced largely in striving towards a goal, not in having attained things, because our nature is always to want to go on to the next endeavor.
Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi

23.
Best to live lightly, unthinkingly.
Sophocles

24.
Do not take life too seriously; you will never get out of it alive.
Hubbard, Elbert

25.
The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.
William Shakespeare

26.
Life is too short to learn German.
Porson, R.

27.
What else can you expect from a town that's shut off from the world by the ocean on one side and New Jersey on the other?
Henry, O.

28.
Life is divided up into the horrible and the miserable.
Allen, Woody

29.
He has not lived badly whose birth and death has been unnoticed by the world.
Horace

30.
Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
Hemingway, Ernest

31.
Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the Earth are never alone or weary of life.
Carson, Rachel

32.
It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived --forwards. The more one ponders this, the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible, precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position.
Kierkegaard, S°ren

33.
It's not true that life is one damn thing after another; it is one damn thing over and over.
Edna St. Vincent Millay

34.
It has always been difficult for Man to realize that his life is all an art. It has been more difficult to conceive it so than to act it so. For that is always how he has more or less acted it.
Ellis, Havelock

35.
Man values life as a sacred jewel in such a way that he reveres him most who haughtily scorns it.
Platen

36.
It's better to be an authentic loser than a false success, and to die alive than to live dead.
Markiewicz, William

37.
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

38.
The lessons this life has planted in my heart pertain more to caring than crops, more to Golden Rule than gold, more to the proper choice than to the popular choice.
Kirby Larson

39.
The finest lives in my opinion are the common model, without miracle and without extravagance.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

40.
He lives who dies to win a lasting name.
Drummond, Henry

41.
Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.
Davy, Sir Humphrey

42.
If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love, then the world will indeed become a garden where all kinds of flowers can bloom and grow.
KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth

43.
If God exists and we are made in his image we can have real meaning, and we can have real knowledge through what he has communicated to us.
Schaeffer, Francis

44.
See everything, overlook a great deal, correct a little.
Pope John XXIII

45.
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

46.
Take life as you find it, but don't leave it that way

47.
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower. Drives my green age that blasts the roots of trees is my destroyer.
Thomas, Dylan

48.
We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance.
Boese, Paul

49.
What a life! True life is elsewhere. We are not in the world.
Rimbaud, Arthur

50.
Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others
Keller, Helen
