Short as life is, we make it still shorter by the careless waste of time.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes
Fortune cannot aid those who do nothing.
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
Life can be wonderful if you're not afraid of it. All it takes is courage, imagination ... and a little dough
Middle age has been defined as what happens when a person's broad mind and narrow waist change places.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
All my life through, the new sights of nature made me rejoice like a child.
The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.
Anybody can dig a hole and plant a tree. But make sure it survives. You have to nurture it, you have to water it, you have to keep at it until it becomes rooted so it can take care or itself. There are so many enemies of trees.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is life itself, it is an insane way to live.
In their innocence, very young children know themselves to be light and love. If we will allow them, they can teach us to see ourselves the same way.
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
Everything passes. Nobody gets anything for keeps. And that's how we've got to live.
Live your life and forget your age.
Hard work, disciplined habits, modesty in living, contentment and cheerfulness.
Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.
