On Life

“Welcome to Planet Earth. There is nothing that you cannot be, or do, or have. You are a magnificent creator.” – Abraham Hicks

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

“All that happens means something; nothing you do is ever insignificant.” – Aldous Huxley

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig.  Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. No rhetoric, no tremolos, no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, completely unencumbered.” – Aldous Huxley, Island

“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” – Anthony Robbin

“I’m beginning to recognise that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.” – Beau Taplin

„Life is not a race – but indeed a journey. Be Honest. Work Hard. Be Choosy. Say ‘thank you’, and ‘great job’ to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you’ve been given, it is not accidental – search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you inspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself – plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you’ve been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment.“ – Bonnie Mohr

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.“ – Charlie Chaplin

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” – Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People

“Think BIG! You are going to be thinking anyway, so think BIG!” – Donald Trump

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” – Eckhart Tolle

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.“ – Helena Bonham Carter

„The eyes of the dead are closed gently; we also have to open gently the eyes of the living.” – Jean Cocteau

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” – John Lennon

“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.” – Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

“In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” – Leo Tolstoy

“Where there is love there is life.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“After all, tomorrow is another day!” – Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

“I can choose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It’s all a question of how I view my life.” – Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes

“I believe when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade… And try to find someone whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.” – Ron White

“More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.” – Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“Remember: whatever you put your attention on expands and grows in your life.” – Susan Smith Jones

“What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?” – Vincent Van Gogh
