There comes a time in your life when you have to let go of the life you planned and live the life you were meant to live. 

The effectiveness of a life, like a field, depends not only upon what grows in it but also what is not allowed to grow in it. 

The road of life can only reveal itself as it is traveled; each turn in the road reveals a surprise. Man’s future is hidden. 

If you tell life what it has to be, you limit it; But if you let life show you what it wants to be, it will open doors you never knew existed. 

You do not need all the answers to be successful in life. You only need to be adjustable as you cruise along.

Know where you are going in life. Purpose is what gives life a meaning. A life that has not a definite plan is likely to become driftwood. 

Slow down! Take time to appreciate nature, chat with a friend, or read a chapter from a good book. There is more to life than running non-stop.

Life cannot give us joy and peace; it is up to us to will it. Life gives us time and space; it is up to us to fill it.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and go to bed at night. In between I occupy myself as best I can.

Your life ends when your body stops functioning. However, keeping your body alive alone does not equate to living. 

The ability to handle life is simply the ability to handle one’s own mind. We fail first in thought and only afterward in action. 

He who postpones the hour of living is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses. 

If you have not the strength to impose your own terms upon life, you must accept the terms it offers you. 

‘Uncertainty’ is the key word in our lives. We must live with uncertainty and steer our ship through life’s perilous paths.

Make the best of everything in life. Do not waste life in doubts and fears. When shall we live if not now?

You should not go through life with a catcher’s mitt on each hand. You need to be able to throw something back.

The rhythm of life is intricate but orderly, tenacious but fragile. To keep that in mind is to hold the key to survival.
