Nothing is more beautiful than the love that has weathered the storms of life. The love of the young for the young, that is the beginning of life. But the love of the old for the old, that is the beginning of things longer.

Jerome K. Jerome

Nothing of importance is ever achieved without discipline. I feel myself sometimes not wholly in sympathy with some modern educational theorists, because I think that they underestimate the part that discipline plays. But the discipline you have in your life should be one determined by your own desires and your own needs, not put upon you by society or authority.

Bertrand Russell

Nothing should bother you in life not even adversity or poverty. For, nothing lasts forever. Yes of course, every matter or issue of life has a limit or breaking point including adversity and poverty. Now, are you undergoing adversity presently or are you currently experiencing poverty? If Yes, then listen up, it's just for a while i.e. you will sooner or later outlive it or rather you will overcome it eventually. I mean, you won't remain poor forever or rather you won't keep on undergoing adversity or poverty forever. Furthermore, nothing should make you to become orgulous, proud, haughty, disdainful or arrogant in life. Not even your own child or children, nor your certificates, nor your qualifications, nor your political status, nor your social status, nor your job, nor your money, nor your properties, nor your knowledge, nor your wisdom, nor your insights, nor your power, nor your riches or stuffs like that. Because, you can't and won't live forever. Oh! Yes, you heard me right as usual, you will definitely leave everything you've acquired behind someday. Apart from that, God resists the proud or the arrogant (James 4 : 6). But guess what? He (God) gives more grace to the humble. Besides, whenever you are proud of whatever you have, you are unknowingly disregarding God and taking his grace upon your life for granted. In other words, whoever that is proud of anything he or she has acquired at any given period of time has failed to acknowledge almighty God as the giver of whatever he or she claims to possess. And God is never happy with such person(s). Thus, desist from pride and arrogance.

Emeasoba George

Novels are longer than life.

Natalie Clifford Barney

Now the alternative to despair is courage. And human life can be viewed as a continuous struggle between these two options. Courage is the capacity to affirm one's life in spite of the elements which threaten it. The fact that courage usually predominates over despair in itself tells us something important about life. It tells you that the forces that affirm life are stronger than those that negate it.

Paul E. Pfuetze

Number is the Word but is not utterance it is wave and light, though no one sees it it is rhythm and music, though no one hears it. Its variations are limitless and yet it is immutable. Each form of life is a particular reverberation of Number.

Maurice Druon

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console to be understood as to understand to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive it is in pardoning that we are pardoned and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Saint Francis of Assisi

O for a life of Sensations rather than of Thoughts.

John Keats, Letter to Benjamin Bailey, Nov 1817

O Time and change! -- with hair as gray as was my sire's that winter day, how strange it seems, with so much gone of life and love, to still live on!

John Greenleaf Whittier

Observe the life like a wise tree by the side of a calm lake! Do not move; just sit and observe! Observe the Sun, observe the storms; observe the wisdom, observe the stupidities!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Obstacles in life are similar to speed bumps on roads. They are both in place for a reason. So, slow down, be observant and make it to the end of the road successfully.

Jay Abiona

Odds life! must one swear to the truth of a song?

Of all the possessions of this life fame is the noblest; when the body has sunk into the dust the great name still lives.
