Life Quotes

My biggest fear is that I will become too comfortable with the idea of being lonely for the rest of my life.

Unknown

I read because I love the experience, because it is a powerful teacher of life, because it transforms me.

Leo Babauta

The death clock is ticking slowly in our breast, and each drop of blood measures its time, and our life is a lingering fever.

Karl Georg Bchner

Some material things make my life more enjoyable; many, however, would not. I like having an expensive private plane, but owning a half-dozen homes would be a burden. Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends. My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest. Both my children and I won what I call the ovarian lottery. (For starters, the odds against my 1930 birth taking place in the U.S. were at least 30 to 1. My being male and white also removed huge obstacles that a majority of Americans then faced.) My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that sometimes produces distorted results, though overall it serves our country well. Ive worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions. In short, fates distribution of long straws is wildly capricious. The reaction of my family and me to our extraordinary good fortune is not guilt, but rather gratitude. Were we to use more than 1% of my claim checks on ourselves, neither our happiness nor our well-being would be enhanced. In contrast, that remaining 99% can have a huge effect on the health and welfare of others. That reality sets an obvious course for me and my family: Keep all we can conceivably need and distribute the rest to society, for its needs. My pledge starts us down that course.

Warren Edward Buffett

Each blade of grass has its spot on earth whence it draws its life, its strength; and so is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life.

Joseph Conrad

Property is intended to serve life, and no matter how much we surround it with rights and respect, it has no personal being. It is part of the earth man walks on. It is not man.

Martin Luther King Jr

Love is energy of life.

Robert Browning

Audacity succeeds as often as it fails; in life it has an even chance.

Napolon Bonaparte

Life is great if properly viewed in any aspect; it is mainly great when viewed in connection with the world to come.

Albert Barnes

The goal of human life is not death but resurrection.

Karl Barth

Culture includes - way of thinking, way of life and way of worship.

Pandurang Shastri Vaijnath Athavale

Marriage, to women as to men, must be a luxury, not a necessity; an incident of life, not all of it. And the only possible way to accomplish this great change is to accord to women equal power in the making, shaping and controlling of the circumstances of life.

Susan Brownell Anthony Jacob

Young men go to war. Sometimes because they are have to, sometimes because they want to. Always, they feel they are supposed to. This comes from the sad, layered stories of life, which over the centuries have seen courage confused with picking up arms, and cowardice confused with laying them down.

Albom, Mitch

The law of life is the law of belief.

Joseph Murphy

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

Susan Polis Schutz

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

W. M. Lewis

The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives.

Albert Schweitzer

Each instant of life is a step toward death.

Pierre Corneille

There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were.
