Life is …

More thoughts and views on life … 

… made up of small pleasures, and tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don’t collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don’t really mean anything. - Norman Lear

… a dynamic process. It welcomes anyone who takes up the invitation to be an active part of it. What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to live life. - Leo Buscaglia

… an error-making and an error-correcting process, and nature in marking man’s papers will grade him for wisdom as measured both by survival and by the quality of life of those who survive. - Jonas Salk

… divided into three terms – that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present to live better in the future. - William Wordsworth

… the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for training. - Lewis Mumford

… without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning. - Joseph Campbell 

… ambiguous; there are many right answers – all depending on what you are looking for. But if you think there is only one right answer, then you’ll stop looking as soon as you find one. - Roger von Oech

… short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh, be swift to love, make haste to be kind. - Henri Frederic Amiel

… made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort. - Humphrey Davy 

… a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. - Anais Nin 

… a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it. - Sai Baba

… all about timing … the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable becomes available, the unattainable becomes attainable. Have the patience, wait it out. - Stacey Charter

… a just and impartial employer that will give you what you ask for – just as long as you are willing to bear the labour for the fortune you are receiving. 

… full of pain, but without it you will never be motivated enough to change for the better. Take pain as your guiding light to move towards perfection.
