Where life is possible at all, a right life is possible; life in a palace is possible; therefore even in a palace a right life is possible.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, "Meditations", book 5.

Where one person shapes their life by precept and example, there are a thousand who have shaped it by impulse and circumstances.

James Russell Lowell

Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment. The response to the challenges of life -- purpose -- is the healing balm that enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.

Denis Watley

Where there is love there is life.

Mahatma Gandhi

Where wise actions are the fruit of life, wise discourse is the pollination.

Bryant McGill

Where you end up isn't the most important thing. It's the road you take to get you there. The road you take is what you'll look back on And call your life. Not reaching success isn't the end of the world. Not trying to reach it is.

Tim Wiley

Whether life is worth living depends on whether there is love in life.

Ronald David Laing

Whether they ever find life there or not, I think Jupiter should be considered an enemy planet.

Jack Handey Deep Thoughts

While I was shooting for Kahaani …I got a call from the director of Coffee House – Gurbir Singh. He asked me whether I was ready to take up a role in his film. Not many people are aware that Gurbirji was the person who offered me my first role in television – for a show called Dastoor. Those days I was a greenhorn, but still he had faith in my capabilities and offered me the role. Since the offer of Coffee House came from him, I definitely had to give it a good thought. Plus, many times it has happened in my life – and perhaps in everyone's life – while talking to someone about a project, an instinct tells you that it is something good for you. There may apparently be no rhyme or reason, but you do sense an inner voice telling you that it will be good. I got the same feeling with this film. Plus my saying yes also meant me saying thank you to him for restoring his faith in me.

While my interest in natural history has added very little to my sum of achievement, it has added immeasurably to my sum of enjoyment in life.

Theodore Roosevelt

While sleeping in a hammock, with the touch of a warm wind we remember why we are in love with the life!

Mehmet Murat ildan

While the fates permit, live happily life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned.

Seneca

While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned.

Seneca

While there's life, there's hope.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

While we are postponing, life speeds by.

Seneca

While we have the gift of life, it seems to me that only tragedy is to allow part of us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness.

Gilda Radner

While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

Angela Schwindt

While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve spirits of the dead...While you do not know life, how can you know about death

Confucius

While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve spirits [of the dead]?...While you do not know life, how can you know about death?

Confucius, The Confucian Analects, bk. 11:11

Whilom, ere youth?s conceit had waned, methought Answers to all life?s problems I had wrought; But now, grown old and wise, too late I see My life is spent, and all my lore is nought.

Omar Khayyam

Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it's the answer to everything. To Why am I here? To uselessness. It's the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it's a cactus.

Enid Bagnold

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love, or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies

Erich Fromm

Who would venture upon the journey of life, if compelled to begin it at the end?

Madame de Maintenon

Whoever destroys a single life is as guilty as though he had destroyed the entire world and whoever resues a single life earns as much merit as though he had rescued the entire world.

The Talmud
