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

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

Norman Cousins

Develop interest in life as you see it in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.

Henry Miller

Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement. There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for planning. No time for future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future, and so they spent more time thinking about it. About the future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future --you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.

John Green

Difficulties in life are opportunities to better things; they are stepping stones to greater experience. Perhaps someday you will be thankful for some temporary failure in a particular direction, When one door closes, another always opens

The Omani Shed

Do not assume that she who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Do not compare yourself to other people, for you are a unique and wonderful creation. Make your own beautiful mark in life.

Sana Dabbas

Do not pursue what is illusory - property and position all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade and can be confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life - don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness it is after all, all the same the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Don't forget to take life one day at a time because if you miss a day or two it's called being in a coma.

Tom Zegan

Dream your life and live your dream!

Gordana Biernat

During my childhood in India, I was brought up to believe that if you are gifted with talents, those talents are not yours - because they come to you straight from God. It's not a chance or an accident that you have the special gifts and talents. You should leverage those God-gifted talents for the purpose of advancing society and mankind, and importanly, for helping others who are in dire need. Life is a give-and-take process. The more you will give back to society, the more you shall receive from God. This upbringing and philosophy of life have kept my feet firmly on the ground. I am truly grateful to my parents and teachers who guided me with such wonderful lessons of life and humanity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

During my childhood, we were tought by our parents and teachers to treat all older women as mothers and younger women as sisters. We were tought to believe that women, just like men, are created in the image of God, and hence must be treated with love, dignity and respect they rightfully deserve. Those life lessons from childhood still remain close to my heart, regardless of time, place or society that I live in. I do hope that we will continue to teach the same precious lessons to our children even today, so that they will always see and treat every woman with respect and dignity, throughout their lives - as their own mother or sister or daughter, as God's divine image, and not as an object of desire to be ogled and fantasized about. In my view, real men treat women with dignity and respect - always!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Dwell as near as possible to the channel in which your life flows.

Henry David Thoreau

Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.

Douglas Pagels, A Wonderful Resolution For The New Year!

Education is the power to think clearly, the power to act well in the world's work, and the power to appreciate life.

Brigham Young

Engrave in Marble all the good things that happen to you, and write in Sand all the bad things from the past. Let go the past, and never look back unless you plan to go that path. Life is within you Today right at this moment, and you will create Tomorrow.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead.

Anonymous

Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another.

Marquis de Condorcet

Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that's been our unifying cry, More light. Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlight. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier's field. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we're supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.

Andrew Schneider

Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment--this day--is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day--each moment of this day--a heaven on earth. This is my day of opportunity.

Dan Custer

Every thought about death takes a moment of life away.

Dejan Stojanovic

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.

Dr. Viktor E Frankl

Everything in life changes you in some way. Even the smallest things. If you do not accept these changes you do not accept yourself. For through these changes brings new and greater things to you, making you wiser, as time progresses. To avoid these changes is a loss. You only live your life once. Do not waste a minute of it avoiding things. Let them come to you, and learn from them. There is always tomorrow.
