430 Great Quotes About Life to Ponder and Share (Page 2 of 3)


Longer Version:

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.'

















































Longer Version:

We are always getting ready to live, but never living... The wave moves onward but the particles of which it is composed do not... It cannot be but that at intervals throughout society there are real men intermixed . . . as the carpenter puts one iron bar in his bannister for every five or six wooden ones.





Longer Version:

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.


















Longer Version:

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can."
Keynote Address, University of the Arts, 134th Commencement (Philadelphia, PA, May 17, 2012).

















Longer Version:

If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.




Longer Version:

Our life is what our thoughts make it. Do every act of your life as if it were your last. In a word, your life is short. You must make the most of the present with the aid of reason and justice. Since it is possible that you may be quitting life this very moment, govern every act and thought accordingly.






Longer Version:

The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing, in so far as it stands ready against the accidental and the unforeseen, and is not apt to fall.




Longer Version:

There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.
