Life is ...

Different thoughts and views on life ...

… a creative process, not a journey of discovery or a school of learning. You’re not discovering yourself, but recreating yourself. So don’t try and figure out who you are, but establish who you want to be. You create your reality every minute, probably without realizing it. You can be, do, and have whatever you can imagine. - Neale Donald Walsch

… not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. - Marie Curie

… like a game of cards. Reliability is the ace, industry the king, politeness the queen, thrift the jack. Common sense is playing to best advantage the cards you draw. And every day, as the game proceeds, you will find the ace, king, queen, jack in your hand and opportunity to use them. - Ed Howe

… a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward. - Henry Ford

… a competition not with others, but with ourselves. We should seek each day to live stronger, better, truer lives; each day to master some weakness of yesterday; each day to repair a mistake; each day to surpass ourselves. - David B. Haight

… so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by the covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power. - Giovanni Giocondo

… a game with many rules but no referee. One learns how to play it more by watching it than by consulting any book, including the holy book. Small wonder, then, that so many play dirty, that so few win, that so many lose. - Joseph Brodsky

… either a daring adventure, or nothing. Security does not exist in nature. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. - Helen Keller

… too short for us to spend great chunks of our time doing things we’d rather not be doing. We should be less fearful of saying no. - Leo Buscaglia

… easier to take than you think; all that is necessary is to accept the impossible, do without the indispensable and bear the intolerable. - Kathleen Norris

… about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. - Gilda Radner

… like walking across a suspended tightrope. If one does not concentrate on looking ahead, but keeps looking back instead, one will surely fall. - Unknown
