To regret one's own experiences is to arrest one's own development. To deny one's own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one's life. It is no less than a denial of the soul
Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Experiencing life through a book can help you learn without all the pain of going through the experiences first hand.
The experience of democracy is like the experience of life itself-always changing, infinite in its variety, sometimes turbulent and all the more valuable for having been tested by adversity.
Common sense is the measure of the possible; it is composed of experience and prevision; it is calculation applied to life
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.
Leadership is applicable to all facets of life: a competency that you can learn to expand your perspective, set the context of a goal, understand the dynamics of human behavior and take the initiative to get to where you want to be.
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
I will not surrender responsibility for my life and my actions.
It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
Those who have compared our life to a dream were right... We sleeping wake, and waking sleep.
It wasn't a matter of courage or dreams, but something a whole lot simpler. A pilot would call it ground orientation. I'd spent a long time circling above the clouds, looking for life, while Hallie was living it.
Our dreams are firsthand creations, rather than residues of waking life. We have the capacity for infinite creativity; at least while dreaming, we partake of the power of the Spirit, the infinite Godhead that creates the cosmos.
Dreams are, by definition, cursed with short life spans
In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.
Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
We are such stuff as dreams are made of, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.
I was not looking for my dreams to interpret my life, but rather for my life to interpret my dreams
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.
When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing -- then we truly live life.
You must have an aim, a vision, a goal. For the man sailing through life with no destination or "port-of- call', every wind is the wrong wind.
Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life.
Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved -- loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
