You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.

E. B. White

George Carlin, You Are All Diseased

You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realize that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all, just as an intelligence without the possibility of expression is not really an intelligence. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing.

Luis Buñuel

You laugh, and the world laughs with you. You cry, and you cry alone. You sing, and the mountains would echo you. You sigh, and it's lost in air. You rejoice, and the world will seek you. You grieve, and the world will walk away. You can be in sync with the world, its people and nature around you. You are the origin, and you are the center of your happiness and well being. So be thankful and enjoy life, each and every day as it comes to you. Cheer up, my friend!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Lest you forget, Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong minded and spiritually advanced folks. Also, without fotgiveness, you cannot move on in life at right pace. How can you with so much unnecessary baggage of grudges sitting on your back? With your power to forgive, your life stream will begin to flow once again, in sync with present and embracing future. Drop that baggage right away, break away from unpleasant memories and situations, make a wish, take a chance, and move on upwards and onwards. Let the life flow, and the journey continues once again, smoothly and seamlessly.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you've been waiting for to fall into place.

Tony Robbins

Henry David Thoreau

You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.

Emeasoba George

You say I'm worthless yet you waste your time on me. You say i can't do anything right but you still waste your breath on me. You tell me I'm stupid yet you still try to teach me. You tell me to live my life yet you give me no life to live?

Latasha Mae frericks

You say that my way of thinking cannot be tolerated? What of it? The man who alters his way of thinking to suit others is a fool. My way of thinking is the result of my reflections. It is part of my inner being, the way I am made. I do not contradict them, and would not even if I wished to. For my system, which you disapprove of, is also my greatest comfort in life, the source of all my happiness --- it means more to me than my life itself.

Marquis de Sade
