Living Quotes

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day's work like a happy child at play.

Albert Einstein

Those who have packed far up into grizzly country know that the presences of even one grizzly on the land elevates the mountains, deepens the canyons, chills the winds, brightens the stars, darkens the forest, and quickens the pulse of all who enter it. They know that when a bear dies, something sacred in every living thing interconnected with that realm... also dies.

John Murray

I . . . am always glad to touch the living rock again and dip my hand in the high mountain air.

John Muir

There can be no greater moral obligation in the environmental field than to ease out the living space and replace dereliction by beauty.

Frank Fraser Darling†

The forest stretched no living man knew how far. That was the dead, sealed world of the vegetable kingdom, and uncharted continent with interlocking trees, living, dead, half-dead, their roots in bogs and swamps, strangling each other in a slow agony that had lasted for centuries. The forest was suffocation, annihilation.

Willa Cather†

Do not feed children on a maudlin sentimentalism or dogmatic religion; give them nature. Let their souls drink in all that is pure and sweet. Rear them, if possible, amid pleasant surroundings ... Let nature teach them the lessons of good and proper living, combined with an abundance of well-balanced nourishment. Those children will grow to be the best men and women. Put the best in them by contact with the best outside. They will absorb it as a plant absorbs the sunshine and the dew.

Luther Burbank

Three things differentiate living from the soul versus living from ego only. They are: the ability to sense and learn new ways, the tenacity to ride a rough road, and the patience to learn deep love over time... So, it is not from the ever changing ego that we love one another but rather from the wild soul

Clarissa Pinkola Estés

The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the living tissue of the city ... Gas-filled, noisy and hazardous, our streets have become the most inhumane landscape in the world.

James M. Fitch

The generations of living things pass in a short time, and like runners hand on the torch of life.

Lucretius

A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself

Laura Gilpin

Childhood lasts all through life. It returns to animate broad sections of adult life. . . . Poets will help us to find this living childhood within us, this permanent, durable immobile world

Gaston Bachelard

The stone unhewn and cold Becomes a living mould, The more the marble wastes The more the statue grows.

Michelangelo Buonarotti

Living things have been doing just that for a long, long time. Through every kind of disaster and setback and catastrophe. We are survivors.

Robert Fulghum

Get busy living, or get busy dying.

Stephen King

Love is not getting, but giving. Not a wild dream of pleasure and a madness of desire, oh, no, love is not that! It is goodness and honour and peace and pure living Yes, love is that and it is the best thing in the world and the thing that lives the longest.

Henry Van Dyke

Avoid fragmentation: Find your focus and seek simplicity. Purposeful living calls for elegant efficiency and economy of effort—expanding the minimum time and energy necessary to achieve desired goals.

Dan Millman

Sometimes it seems like we're living in a prison & the crime is how much we hate ourselves.

Unknown

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.

James A. Michener

In every living thing there is the desire for love.

D.H. Lawrence

The dedicated life is the life worth living. You must give with your whole heart

Anne Dillard

Being on the tightrope is living; everything else is waiting.

Karl Wallenda

Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.

Barbara De Angelis

When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.

Ernest Hemingway

Morality becomes hypocrisy if it means accepting mothers suffering or dying in connection with unwanted pregnancies and illegal abortions - and unwanted children living in misery.
