The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.
Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
Expert on the mind-body connection
It is not death that a man should fear,
but he should fear never beginning to live.
Marcus Aurelius (121-180)
Don't part company with your future. It is an
anchor in the storm. A purposeless life is an
early death. What you believe about your mission
in life is the force that determines what you
will accomplish or fail to accomplish in life.
You are what your deep driving desire is;
As your deep driving desire is, so is your will;
As your will is so is your deed;
As your deed is so is your destiny.
Worry looks around, sorry looks back, faith looks up.
Look and you will find it -
what is unsought will go undetected.
Greek tragedian playwright
The purpose of life is to live a life of purpose.
Motivational speaker, author
Great minds have purposes,
little minds have wishes
Washington Irving (1783-1859)
Develop an interest in life as you see it;
the people, things, literature, music -
the world is so rich, simply throbbing
with rich treasures, beautiful souls and
interesting people. Forget yourself.
Henry Miller (1891-1980)
American writer and painter
I don't know what your destiny will be,
but one thing I do know: the only ones among you
who will be really happy are those who have
sought and found how to serve.
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
Theologian, musician, philosopher, physician
That is happiness: to be dissolved into
something complete and great.
Willa Cather (1874-1947)
When you were born, you cried and the
world rejoiced; live your life so that
when you die, the world cries
and you rejoice.
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn
a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't
learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we
got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
Spiritual teacher, founder of Buddhism
And now, the Last Word:
Alice said to Cheshire Cat, "Would you tell me please which way I ought to go from here?" Cheshire Cat said, "That depends where you want to get to." Alice responded, "I don't much care where." Cheshire Cat then replied, "Then it doesn't matter which way you go."
From "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,"
by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)
Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.
T. S. Elliot
