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.
– Oliver GoldsmithRate it:
Life bears an astonishingly closer resemblance to the boxing game IMHO. You see, in a boxing game, the boxer is declared defeated not when he has fallen but when he has refused to get up. That's why in life it doesn't matter how many times you fall; yet what matters in reality is how often you get up and rise. Good luck, my friend!

Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.
– Paul GauguinRate it:
Life can be compared to a Rainbow that requires both the Sun and the Rain in order to create its Bright and Beautiful Colors.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.
– Thich Nhat HanhRate it:
Life can be full of so many unexpected twists and turns that you'll never find in any Hollywood movie plots or Broadway plays. No wonder! After all, those movies and plays are written by professional story writers, while your life story is written by Supreme Power, and neither Hollywood scriptwriters nor Broadway playwrights can ever match Her creativity.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.

Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I've had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh.

Life can't ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer's lover until death--fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous constant.
– Edna FerberRate it:
Life can/will sometimes knock you down. It's up to you to either bounce back up or remain where you are knocked down. But, I urge you as ever, don't/never get stuck on where you've fallen. Rather, strive by all means to get back up to your feet. Because, you will hardly make headway until you resolve to get up from your ashes of downfall/failure.
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Life cannot be measured by summary statistics, such as the money accumulated in the banks, or the shares acquired in the stock market, or the number of real estates owned etc. In my view, the only valuable metric that would quantify your life most accurately is the number of lives you were able to help selflessly, and influence most positively. The true purpose of human life is very noble IMHO....always above and beyond mere metrics of materialistic matters.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Life cannot find reasons to sustain it, cannot be a source of decent natural regard, unless each of us resolves to breathe such qualities into it.
– Frank Herbert, Chenoeh: "Coversations with Leto II"Rate it:
