Life Quotes

When a person is born, he can embark on only one of three roads of life: if you go right, the wolves will eat you; if you go left, youll eat the wolves; if you go straight, youll eat yourself.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

It seems to me that all of the evil in life comes from idleness, boredom, and psychic emptiness, but all of that is inevitable when you become accustomed to living at others expense.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.

Sandara Carey

Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It is what you do for others.

Danny Thomas

Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.

Helen Keller

We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one

Jacques Cousteau

I understood when I was just a child that without water, everything dies. I didn't understand until much later that no one "owns" water. It might rise on your property, but it just passes through. You can use it, and abuse it, but it is not yours to own. It is part of the global commons, not "property" but part of our life support system

Marq de Villiers

Keep your private life private. Be open to suggestions from different people. And just be nice. I have heard stories about people who are just plain rude to the press or fans.

Michelle Trachtenberg

The fans have been really incredible everywhere we've been. You want to make sure you put on the best concert of your life to show them how appreciative you are.

Jonathan Davis

The quality of water and the quality of life in all its infinite forms are critical parts of the overall, ongoing health of this planet of ours, not just here in the Amazon, but everywhere... The hardest part of any big project is to begin. We have begun. We are underway. We have a passion. We want to make a difference

Sir Peter Blake

Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.

Nam June Paik

A useless life is only an early death

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It is inevitable that those to whom is vouchsafed a long life of usefulness should outlive the friends of their youth

Cleveland Abbe

Of the gladest moments in human life, methinks is the departure upon a distant journey to unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the Slavery of Home, man feels once more happy. The blood flows with the fast circulation of childhood....afresh dawns the morn of life...

Sir Richard Francis Burton

The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Hollywood is like life, you face it with the sum total of your equipment.

Joan Crawford

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Hunter S. Thompson

Man is immortal; therefore he must die endlessly. For life is a creative idea; it can only find itself in changing forms.

Rabindranath Tagore

Those in authority should take appropriate precautions to protect our citizens. But we will not allow this enemy to win the war by changing our way of life or restricting our freedoms.

George Walker Bush

People repeat in adult life emotions they experience in childhood. Many of the people whom I spent the last 30 or 40 years treating at so much per minute wouldn't have needed any treatment at all if they had had the right care as children

Karl Augustus Menninger

Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.

Edward L. Bernays

In terms of doing work and in terms of learning and evolving as a person, you just grow more when you get more people's perspectives... I really try and live the mission of the company and... keep everything else in my life extremely simple.

Mark Zuckerberg

For mortal men there is but one hell, and that is the folly and wickedness and spite of his fellows; but once his life is over, there's an end to it: his annihilation is final and entire, of him nothing survives.

Marquis De Sade

Yes, hell exists. It is not a fairy tale. One indeed burns there. This hell is not at the end of life. It is here. At the beginning. Hell is what the infant must experience before he gets to us.

Dr. Frederick Leboyer
