  At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that 'news' is not something that happens to other people. He might learn how his ancestors lived and that he himself is no different - in the crunch his life depends on his agility, alertness, and personal resourcefulness.  
 -  Robert A. Heinlein
  

  The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

  Life is a mirror. You get what you see. If you project anger into the mirror, that is what you get back. If you project joy into the mirror, it reflects joy right back to you. Failure for failure. Success for success. What you project is what is reflected back to you.  
 -  Robert G. Allen
  

  Life was a lot simpler when what we honored was father and mother rather than all major credit cards.

  Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.  
 -  Soren Kierkegaard
  

  I certainly don't have the answers to all life's problems. While physics and mathematics may tell how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behaviour because there are far too many equations to solve. I am no better than anyone else at understanding what makes people tick, particularly women.  
 -  Stephen Hawking
  

  Sometimes life's going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.

  Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.  
 -  Steve McQueen
  

  Say YES to life. Participate. Move. Act. Write. Read. Sign up. Take a stand. Or do whatever it takes for you. Get involved in the process. As Rollo May wrote in Man's Search for Himself: Every organism has one and only one central need in life, to fulfill its own potentialities.  
 -  Susan Jeffers
  

  The art of living consists in knowing which impulses to obey and which must be made to obey.

  What life have you, if you have not life together?  
 -  T. S. Eliot
  

  People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.  
 -  Thich Nhat Hanh
  

  My main purpose in life is to make enough money to create ever more inventions. The dove is my emblem. I want to save and advance human life, not destroy it. I am proud of the fact that I have never invented weapons to kill.

 -  Thomas Carlyle
  

  A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.  
 -  Thomas Merton
  

  The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

  Missing someone is a part of life, but just because you miss them doesn't mean you need them! Move on with your life, you obviously deserve better if they walked out of your life in the first place!

 -  Unknown
  

  I'm only me. That is all I can be. No more, no less, dont second guess. I love, I live, I laugh, I cry. Some days I'm funny, others I'm not, sometimes I'm in overdrive and I can't stop. You may not like me, but that's okay because this is me and how I'll stay.

  The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.
