What torture, this life in society! Often someone is obliging enough to offer me a light, and in order to oblige him I have to fish a cigarette out of my pocket.

Karl Kraus

What we all hope in reaching for a book, is to meet a man of our own heart, to experience tragedies and delights which we ourselves lack the courage to invite, to dream dreams which will render life more hallucinating, perhaps also to discover a philosophy of life which will make us more adequate in meeting the trials and ordeals which beset us. To merely add to our store of knowledge or improve our culture, whatever that may mean, seems worthless to me.

Henry Miller

What we call education and culture is for the most part nothing but the substitution of reading for experience, of literature for life, of the obsolete fictitious for the contemporary real.

What we call life is only talk of nature.

What's really important in life Sitting on a beach Looking a television eight hours a day I think we have to appreciate that we're alive for only a limited period of time, and we'll spend most of our lives working.

Victor Kiam

What's the big deal if you're different? It's perfectly okay to be different, because at least you're genuine and not a shallow imitation. The truth is that you're yourself, and that's why you're different. Celebrate your differentness with joy. Always be yourself, and don't try to keep on changing, because eventually some you'll run out of new things to become. Be yourself, and don't waste time to be what 'they' like you to be; because you'll never win them all. Be yourself, because all others, especially the good ones, are already taken. Be yourself, and you'll be happy. Always Keep It Simple & Straightforward (KISS), and you'll enjoy life. Cheers!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. We did not weave the web of life We are merely a strand in it. What we do with the web, we do to ourselves...

Chief Seattle

The big-city Grandpa has gone big time. ... He is the life of every party, and out to prove he is just as young as he ever was. A grandchild who makes the mistake of calling him 'Gramps' is lucky if he isn't rewarded by a quick kick in the stomach.

Hal

Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.

Charles Dickens

Whatever that happens to you in life has a spiritual significance. I mean, it could be a lesson, test, trial, redirection or something to strengthen your faith/courage in God i.e. there is a reason behind every issue/matter of life. Besides, the lessons of life that you are meant to learn out of every issue/matter are as well stepping stones of faith to take you to a higher plains of belief/faith in God. So, you've got to acknowledge all that in order not to be bothered by any issue/matter.

Emeasoba George

Whatever we are today has emerged from our thoughts, actions and choices of yesterday; and likewise, our present choices will build our life tomorrow. Thus, our life is constructed by our own hands, and our future is the creation of our mind. We are truly the master of our Destiny.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Emeasoba George

Whatever your objective in life may be, never use violence to get it! Violence belongs to the Land of Evil; once you enter there, your face and your heart is forever sealed with the devilish ugliness of the violence!

Mehmet Murat ildan

When a man comes to die, no matter what his talents and influence, and genius, if he dies unloved his life must be a failure to him and dying a cold horror. It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world.

When God asks me "What have you done with the life I gave to you?", I don't want my answer to be "I spent it all chasing Silver and Gold."

Feneau Demesmin

When humans participate in ceremony, they enter a sacred space. Everything outside of that space shrivels in importance. Time takes on a different dimension. Emotions flow more freely. The bodies of participants become filled with the energy of life, and this energy reaches out and blesses the creation around them. All is made new everything becomes sacred.
