Living A Wonderful Life
We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.
- Jean Houston
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Life will always be to a large extent what we ourselves make it.
Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn one's back on life.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
- Henry Drummond
We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.
- Les(ter Louis) Brown
Life is not a ‘brief candle'. It is a splendid torch that I want to make burn as brightly as possible before handing on to future generations.
Seize the day. Make your life extraordinary.
- Robin Williams in Dead Poet's Society (movie)
To know how to live is my trade and my art.
If you let yourself be absorbed completely, if you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Nothing is more powerful than an individual acting out of his conscience, thus helping to bring the collective conscience to life.
- Norman Cousins
You have not had thirty years of experience. You have had one year's of experience 30 times
Many people's tombstones should read "Died at 30. Buried at 60".
For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his [or her] happiness on major events like a great job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
- Andy Rooney
It is better to wear out than rust out.
If you do not know what you want to achieve with your life, you may not achieve much.
"What will my future be, I wonder?
It could be so exciting, to be out in the world, to be free ...
I've always longed for adventure, to do the things I've never dared
I must dream of the things I am seeking ..."
- song lyrics quoted from The Sound of Music (movie)
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it.
- Margaret Thatcher
Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last effort of genius.
- George Sand
And that was it. Right there. Right there. That was the moment. I suddenly realized that unless something changed soon ...And so I made a major decision ... I decided to take control of my life.
- Bridget Jones's Diary (movie)
Never in my life did I think I would end up in such a beautiful place ...doing so many incredible things. So, I'm sorry if I was a little too honest with you. But I wasted too much of my life being quiet. I was afraid, I guess. You know how it is. You keep your head down and you hustle and hustle. Then you look up one day and wonder, “How did I even get here?” Huh, bro? See some of the things we care about a lot are pretty worthless.
- Last Holiday (movie quote)
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy sh@* we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
- Fight Club (movie quote ...Tyler Durden)
What would your life be like if you found out you had 3 weeks left? And you know that you had not begun to live? And you had all these dreams and all these possibilities. And all these things you wanted to do and things you wanted to say and now time's up?
- Queen Latifah, Last Holiday Commentary quote
Everything doesn't always lay itself out the way you would like it to. (A.men ... if you count the K9) And in these times you have to be ready to embrace life as an adventure and just take the ride. You know just go 4 it. “Okay, yeah. So your dress didn't fit quite the way you wanted it. Well, wrap this around it, tie it like that,and make a whole new outfit.” You know what I mean? So, you know .. I think the message has been:”Say what you want, be who you want.” Life is too short to be anything else but yourself.
- Queen Latifah, Last Holiday Commentary quote
