Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Don't be concerned others not appreciating you. Be concerned about your not appreciating others.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.
Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people, then I go home alone.
But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes
Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.
I have always regarded myself as the pillar of my life.
I have no idea what's awaiting me, or what will happen when this all ends. For the moment I know this: there are sick people and they need curing.
Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one.
For life in general, there is but one decree: youth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regret.
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.
Don't cry for a man who's left you - the next one may fall for your smile.
To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.
Life is a journey, not a destination.
