And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY:
My candle burns at both its ends;
It will not last the night;
But oh, my foes, and oh, my friends --
It gives a lovely light.
I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.:
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
