One thing life has taught me if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.

Roosevelt, Eleanor

One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.

Eleanor Roosevelt

One whose chief regard is for his own mind, and for the divinity within him and the service of its goodness, will strike no poses, utter no complaints, and crave neither for solitude nor yet for a crowd. Best of all, his life will be free from continual pursuing and avoiding.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations – Book Three

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life That word is love.

Sophocles

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.

Sophocles

One word
Frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is love.

Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus

One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

One's family is the most important thing in life. I look at it this way One of these days I'll be over in a hospital somewhere with four walls around me. And the only people who'll be with me will be my family.

Robert C. Byrd

One's life story cannot be told with complete veracity. A true autobiography would have to be written in states of mind, emotions, heartbeats, smiles and tears not in months and years, or physical events. Life is marked off on the soul by feelings, not by dates.

Helen Keller

One's prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must live it to the full.

Muriel Spark

One's real life is often the life that one does not lead.

Oscar Wilde

Only idiots die for an idea! Life is greater and infinitely more valuable than all the ideas!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Only one endowed with restless vitality is susceptible to pessimism. You become a pessimist --a demonic, elemental, bestial pessimist --only when life has been defeated many times in its fight against depression.

Emil Cioran

Only when man's life comes to its end in prosperity can one call that man happy.

Aeschylus

Ordinary people live wanting, all their life. Successful people are willing to work for all their wants.

Vijay Samuel Benjamin

Oregano is the spice of life.

Henry J. Tillman

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.

Earl Nightingale

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life's star, hath had elsewhere its setting, and comet from afar: not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.

William Wordsworth

Our brains are seventy-year clocks. The Angel of Life winds them up once for all, then closes the case, and gives the key into the hand of the Angel of the Resurrection.

Hfiz

Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves -- to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today.
