Life …

Life ...

… doesn’t cheat. It doesn’t pay in counterfeit coin. It doesn’t lock up shop and go home when pay-day comes. It pays every man exactly what he has earned. The age-old law that a man gets what he earns hasn’t been suspended. When we take that truth home and believe it, we’ve turned a big corner on the high road that runs straight through to success. - Basil S. Walsh 

… can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to face many a danger, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle. - Annie Besant

… has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness. In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience. 

…will give you what you attract with your thoughts. Think, act and talk negatively, and your world will be negative. Think, act and talk with enthusiasm and you will attract positive results. - Michael LeBeuf 

… isn’t like a book. Life isn’t logical or sensible or orderly. Life is a mess most of the time. And theology must be lived in the midst of that mess. - Charles Colton 

… has a self-correcting mechanism – things that we once thought were terrible have a way of becoming stepping stones for new discoveries. - Raymond Soh

… does not consist either of wallowing in the past or of peering anxiously at the future. Life is now. Whatever it offers, little or much, life is now – this day – this hour. - Charles Macomb Flandrau

… satisfaction occurs most often when people are engaged in absorbing activities that cause them to forget themselves, lose track of time and stop worrying. 

… that is free of attachment lives in the moment and makes no demand that the moment last. Life’s concern is not with the future but with the present.
