Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.

William James 1842

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

Rachel Carson

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.

George Bernard Shaw

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.n

Helen Keller

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Alfred Adler

Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

We have committed the Golden Rule to memory; let us now commit it to life.

Edwin Markham

Look to this day! For it is life, the very life of life. For yesterday is but a dream And tomorrow is only a vision But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness And omorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day! Such is the salutation of the dawn.

Kalidasa

Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would be realize it, than to ccept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

Henry Miller

Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

Langston Hughes

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it! Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! (American Revolutionary War)

Patrick Henry

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau

I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau

The most solid comfort one can fall back upon is the thought that the business of one's life is to help in some small way to reduce the sum of ignorance, degradation and misery on the face of this beautiful earth.

George Eliot

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.

Aristotle 384BC

As you make your way through life, let this ever be your goal, keep your eye upon the dougnut and not upon the hole.

Anon x

Real, constructive mental power lies in the creative thought that shapes your destiny, and your hour-by-hour mental counduct produces power for change in your life. Develop a train of thought on which to ride. The nobility of your life as well as your happiness depends upon the direction in which that train of thought is going.

Laurence J. Peter

If we are to survive, we must have ideas, vision, and courage. These things are rarely produced by committees. Everything that matters in our intellectual and moral life begins with an individual confronting his own mind and conscience in a room by himself.

Arthur Schlesinger

There is one purpose to life and one only: to bear witness to and understand as much as possible of the complexity of the world - its beauty, its mysteries, its riddles. The more you understand, the more you look, the greater is your enjoyment of life and your sense of peace. That's all there is to it. If an activity is not grounded in 'to love' or 'to learn,' it does not have value.

Anne Rice

One summer night, out on a flat headland, all but surrounded by the waters of the bay, the horizons were remote and distant rims on the edge of space. Millions of stars blazed in darkness, and on the far shore a few lights burned in cottages. Otherwise there was no reminder of human life. My companion and I were alone with the stars: the misty river of the Milky Way flowing across the sky, the patterns of the constellations standing out bright and clear, a blazing planet low on the horizon. It occurred to me that if this were a sight that could be seen only once in a century, this little headland would be thronged with spectators. But it can be see many scores of nights in any year, and so the lights burned in the cottages and the inhabitants probably gave not a thought to the beauty overhead; and because they could see it almost any night, perhaps they never will.
