Life is not a continuum of pleasant choices, but of inevitable problems that call for strength, determination, and hard work
If we could do away with death, we wouldn’t object; to do away with capital punishment will be more difficult. Were that to happen, we would reinstate it from time to time.
Capital punishment kills immediately, whereas lifetime imprisonment does so slowly. Which executioner is more humane? The one who kills you in a few minutes, or the one who wrests your life from you in the course of many years?

Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it. Bitterness paralyzes life; love empowers it. Bitterness sours life; love sweetens it. Bitterness sickens life; love heals it. Bitterness blinds life; love anoints its eyes.
All deception in the course of life is indeed nothing else but a lie reduced to practice, and falsehood passing from words into things.
Make your life a mission - not an intermission.
To find your mission in life is to discover the intersection between your heart's deep gladness and the world's deep hunger.
I slept, and dreamed that life was beauty; I woke, and found that life was Duty.
The great aim of human life
It's about food. Itís about your home. Itís about your life. The government is worried about all of the above. All Iím saying is you should be worried theyíre worried. Hereís why: Theyíre telling you that you canít take care of yourself. You canít be trusted with what you put in your mouth or what you sign on the mortgage dotted line. So theyíll tell you what to put in your mouth and theyíll save you from what you signed on that dotted line. Does anyone see a trend here?

For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death.
The variety of life in nature can be compared to a vast library of unread books, and the plundering of nature is comparable to the random discarding of whole volumes without having opened them, and learned from them. Our critical dependence on the great variety of nature for the progress we have already made has been amply documented. Indifference to the loss of species is, in effect, indifference to the future, and therefore a shameful carelessness about our children.
If penicillin can cure those that are ill, Spanish sherry can bring the dead back to life.
Movies are not about the weekend that they are released, and in the grand scheme of things, that is probably the most unimportant time of a film's life.

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.
I define sustainable history as a durable progressive trajectory in which the quality of life on this planet or other planets is premised on the guarantee of human dignity for all at all times and under all circumstances.
The aims of life are the best defense against death.
Your life will be no better than the plans you make and the action you take. You are the architect and builder of your own life, fortune, destiny.
