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. - Eileen Caddy

… truly known only to those who suffer, lose, endure adversity and stumble from defeat to defeat. - Anais Nin 

… like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will. - Jawaharlal Nehru

… good when we think it’s good. Life is bad when we don’t think. - Doug Horton

… not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways. - Stephen Benet

… the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises. - Samuel Butler

… a wave, which in no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles. - John Tyndall

…like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters. - Seneca

… neither good nor evil; it is simply the place where good and evil exist. - Seneca

… fortified by many friendships. - Sydney Smith

… a stranger’s sojourn, a night at an inn. - Marcus Aurelius

… a big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can. - Danny Kaye 

… God’s novel. Let him write it. - Isaac Singer

… Paradise for those who love many things with a passion. - Leo Buscaglia

… meant to be enjoyed, not endured. - Anthony D'Angelo

… really simple, but men insist on making it complicated. - Confucius

… a compromise of what your ego wants to do, experience tells you to do, and what your nerves let you do.

… a school. Those who learn to love and help others graduate with honours.

… what we make it, always has been, always will be. To get more out of life, give more of yourself. 

… not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!

… ever active – never inert. If it were otherwise, it would be non-existent.

… not dated merely by years. Events are sometimes the best calendars. 

… a battle in which we fall from wounds we receive in running away.

… difficult; once you accept that, it gets easier. 

… an adventure to be lived, not a problem to be solved.
