The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned
But now everything will be different. It is nonsense to believe that life will not allow it, that the past will not allow it. I must struggle to live a better life, a far better life.
If I had my life to live over, I would perhaps have more actual troubles but I'd have fewer imaginary ones
If I'd take so many little things on my heartÖI'd live only for dog years..
If I had my life to live over, I would perhaps have more actual troubles but I'd have fewer imaginary ones.
I have learned to live each day as it comes, and not to borrow trouble by dreading tomorrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes cowards of us.
Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!î
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly
Don't worry about your heart, it will last you as long as you live
Promise yourself to live your life as a revolution and not just a process of evolution.
We live in a fast-paced society. Walking slows us down.
Too rarely do most of us focus on our real inner beauty and our inner strengths. Do you recall watching "boy meets girl" movies? As the boy and the girl struggled through thick and thin, you hoped and prayed the whole time that everything would work out. He went to war, she left home, he came back, she was gone, he found her, her brother told him to get lost, she told him to get lost, and all the time you hoped that they would live happily ever after.
One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.
We all live in the protection of certain cowardices which we call our principles.
If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.
It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
We live in a world of transgressions and selfishness, and no pictures that represent us otherwise can be true, though, happily, for human nature, gleamings of that pure spirit in whose likeness man has been fashioned are to be seen, relieving its deformities, and mitigating if not excusing its crimes.
The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
People are always getting ready to live but never living.
Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head.
Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
It is the nature of desire not to be satisfied, and most men live only for the gratification of it.
