Any woman who has a career and a family automatically develops something in the way of two personalities, like two sides of a dollar bill, each different in design. ... Her problem is to keep one from draining the life from the other.

Ivy Baker Priest

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.

M. Cartmill

As the light changed from red to green to yellow and back to red again, I sat there thinking about life. Was it nothing more than a bunch of honking and yelling Sometimes it seemed that way.

Jack Handey Deep Thoughts

At the close of life the question will be not how much have you got, but how much have you given nor how much have you won, but how much have you done not how much have you saved, but how much have you sacrificed how much have you loved and served, not how much were you honored.

Nathan C. Schaeffer

Be still sad heart and cease repining;
Behind the clouds the sun is shining,
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Longfellow

Bear in mind that you should conduct yourself in life as at a feast.

Epictetus

Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Blame someone else and get on with your life.

Alan Woods

Boyhood, like measles, is one of those complaints which a man should catch young and have done with, for when it comes in middle life it is apt to be serious.

P. G. Wodehouse

Can anyone really calm the Storm? It's not even worth trying, but surely one can calm oneself. And the Storm will pass. The same applies to various challenging and life-changing phases that one encounters unexpectedly. The reality is that nothing is forever, except those "Forever" postage stamps. Everything shall pass away, the good, the bad and the ugly too. All one can do is to stay calm and ride the storm, with complete and strong faith in God. It's true that sometimes, God brings the greatest rains with a storm; and likewise, God also brings the greatest blessings to you, with your difficulty.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Challenges are what make life interesting overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Joshua J. Marine

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Change is the law of life; and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.

John F. Kennedy

Character is the most important and differentiating aspect of human life. In my view, when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. You can judge the Character of a woman/man by how she/he treats fellow people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people and animals who can't fight back. Character is the biggest asset, so don't lose it for any price.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Chester Pullman is simply one of the most generous human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting in my life. To me, he is an American treasure!

Contessa Bianca Bertolli

Commit yourself to a dream... Nobody who tries to do something great but fails is a total failure. Why Because he can always rest assured that he succeeded in life's most important battle--he defeated the fear of trying.

Dr. Robert Schuller

Compromise, if not the spice of life, is its solidity. It is what makes nations great and marriages happy.

Phyllis McGinley

Cosmos is God, who whispered the syllable of life.

Dejan Stojanovic

Courage is often misconstrued as the absence of fear, which it is not. Courage is rather a total mastery of fear. It's the Courage that takes away the fear to make mistakes and deepest fear to fail. Courage is never a roaring beast as pictured many a times - but in my view, it's a wonderful, quiet and tiny singing bird that whispers softly and gently in your ears: "You'll do it again tomorrow! You'll make it happen!" during the darkest moments of life, when you are all alone. Never lose that beautiful and precious singing bird.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things Knows not the livid loneliness of fear.

Amelia Earhart

Creation and cultivation of Beauty doesn’t happen without tremendous Endurance. True Beauty is often emerged out of Chaos and Turbulence. Look at the eruptions of Volcanoes and shaking of Earth that give birth to beautiful mountains and scenic lakes. Think of those amazingly attractive Stalactites formed only after continuous erosion by slow dripping water. Something far superior, magnificent, better and beautiful always appears out of otherwise ordinary - only after enduring the colossal Chaos, frightening Fury, traumatizing Turbulence and disturbing Disorder within the stagnant Status Quo. That’s the reality of life! So, accept and endure the changes, no matter how chaotic, stormy and irrational they may seem to you today. You are chosen by Supreme Powers to Create and Cultivate the Beauty, something that never existed before – only through your exceptional Endurance. And I am sure that you will, my friend, pass this test with flying colors. You’ve done it before, and you’ll do it again. Go on, and break a leg!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Creativity and Innovation emerge out of one's love for life. You must be in love with life in order to be creative and innovative, so that you can enhance the beauty, elegance and grace of life.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

D'you call life a bad job Never We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.

W. Somerset Maugham

Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life, it is life itself.

Henry Havelock Ellis

Death ends a life, not a relationship.

Morrie Schwartz, Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
