On Life

in esteem •  13 days ago

Life is so much simpler when you stop explaining yourself to people and just do what works for you. If you do the best you can with what you know and what you have, it would be all right. No one can ask for more of you.


Rest not! Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

As a well-spent day affords happy sleep, so does a life profitably employed afford a happy death. - Leonardo da Vinci

Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for. - David Starr Jordan

Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay. - Simone de Beauvoir

Every time you subtract Negative from your life, you make room for more Positive! - Unknown

I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable … but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. - Agatha Christie

One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure. - William Feather

If life be wretched, it is hard to bear it; if it be happy, it is horrible to lose it; both come to the same thing. - Jean de La Bruyere

The greatest way to live with honour in this world is to be what we pretend to be. - Socrates

It is a brief period of life that is granted us by nature, but the memory of a well-spent life never dies. - Cicero

Let us all so live as we shall wish we had lived when we come to die; for that only is well, that ends well. - Benjamin Whichcote

The ability to handle life is simply the ability to handle one’s own mind. We fail first in thought and only afterwards in action. - Unknown
