We all live in suspense from day to day; in other words, you are the hero of your own story.

Some people seem to go through life standing at the complaint counter.
Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are the richest.
Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
There is a very fine line between loving life and being greedy for it.
Don't worry about your life; what you shall eat, or drink, or the clothing for your body. [Matthew 6:31]
For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. [James 4:14]
Life is short, but it's long enough to ruin any man who wants to be ruined.
On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.
Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.
Life is full and overflowing with the new. But it is necessary to empty out the old to make room for the new to enter.
What is life? A frenzy. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a fiction. And the greatest good is trivial; for all life is a dream and all dreams are dreams.
Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor life on a single hope.
You are a little soul carrying around a corpse.
We are born crying, live complaining, and die disappointed.
The best things in life are never rationed. Friendship, loyalty, and love. They do not require coupons.
It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived --forwards. The more one ponders this, the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible, precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position.
Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept 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.
If life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.
Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live; Not where I love, but where I am, I die.
There is only one way to get ready for immortality, and that is to love this life and live it as bravely and faithfully and cheerfully as we can.
The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.
I am a part of all that I have met.
Life is mostly froth and bubble, Two things stand like stone, Kindness in another's trouble, Courage in your own.
Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.
And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every act of thy life as if it were the last.
Deep down, no one really believes they have a right to live. But this death sentence generally stays tucked away, hidden beneath the difficulty of living. If that difficulty is removed from time to time, death is suddenly there, unintelligibly.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.
Don't be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.
Life is a glass given to us to fill; a busy life is filling it with as much as it can hold; a hurried life has had more poured into it than it can contain.
Life is uncharted territory. It reveals its story one moment at a time.
It is very certain that the desire of life prolongs it.
We get into the habit of living before acquiring the habit of thinking. In that race which daily hastens us towards death, the body maintains its irreparable lead.
Life is very interesting if you make mistakes.
