Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there
One word frees us
of all the weight and pain of life;
That word is love.
A marriage...makes of two fractional
lives a whole;
it gives to two purposeless lives
a work, and doubles the strength
of each to perform it;
it gives to two
a reason for living,
and something to live for;
it will give a new gladness
to the sunshine,
a new fragrance to the flowers,
a new beauty to the earth,
and a new mystery to life.
Everything that looks to the future elevates human nature. Never is life so low or so little as when occupied with the present.
Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.
Let me give you a definition of ethics: It is good to maintain and further life it is bad to damage and destroy life.
In civilized life, law floats in a sea of ethics.
A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.
Let me give you the definition of ethics: it is good to maintain life and to further life. It is bad to damage and destroy life. And this ethic, profound and universal, has the significance of a religion. It is religion.
A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives.
Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.
You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.
The trouble with us in America isn't that the poetry of life has turned to prose, but that it has turned to advertising copy.
Life shouldn't be printed on dollar bills.
Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'thank you,' that would suffice
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is 'thank you', it will be enough.
If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.
The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.
The rule of my life is to make business a pleasure, and pleasure my business.
In business or in life, don't follow the wagon tracks too closely.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.
Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life
