On Life


Life is short. Live it while you are still healthy and has your faculities intact. Leave the past behind and stop worrying about the future. The past is past. The future has yet to arrive, and we know not what will happen. All we have is now – the present moment. Make the most of it. Live!


So it is with all life. A tedium that includes the expectation of nothing but more tedium; a regret, right now, for the regret I’ll have tomorrow for having felt regret today. - Fernando Pessoa

We cross the stream of life at different places. Some wade through the shallows in a drought, others have to swim across deep waters in a storm. - Charles Edward Jerningham

The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. - Don Williams

Sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down, so you can learn how to live the right side up. - Unknown

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. - Jawaharlal Nehru

What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things. - Zelda Fitzgerald

The quality of a man’s life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavour. - Sherman Alexie

We must value life and treasure each breath we take. We must value each person and how he or she touches our lives every day. - Shadonna Richards

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. - Isaac Asimov

The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. - Jiddu Krishnamurti

There are three modes of bearing the ills of life, by indifference, by philosophy, and by religion. - Charles Colton

Great selection! I love the Asimov quote. It's sad but true.


It is isn't it. 😊

A nice collection. I especially appreciated your introduction. I'm going to try to practice that today.


Yes, not a moment to lose. 😊 👍

Life, as long and as consciously as possible :D


Yes, that is Zen living. 😊

Howdy sir Vincent! some of these are so good.

That saying was by Zelda Fitzgerald. And it is very true. If only people learn to love people and use things, instead of the other way round.


Never heard of her. Then why does it say "unknown?"


It's an oversight. 😊


oh I see, mr. perfect made a mistake! lol.
