We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
Love gives beauty to everything it touches. Not greed and utility; they produce offices, but not dwelling houses. To be able to love material things, to clothe them with tender grace, and yet not be attached to them, this is a great service. Providence expects that we should make this world our own, and not live in it as though it were a rented tenement. We can only make it our own through some service, and that service is to lend it love and beauty from our soul. Your own experience shows you the difference between the beautiful, the tender, the hospitable, and the mechanically neat and monotonously useful.
Rabindranath Tagore quotes
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
Victor Hugo quotes
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Pablo Picasso quotes
Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
Leo F. Buscaglia quotes
It has bothered me all my life that I do not paint like everybody else.
Henri Matisse quotes
During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people, I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if it needs be it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
Nelson Mandela quotes
Life is nothing without friendship.
Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
Thank God, I have my work, but instead of earning money by it, I need money to be able to work; that is the difficulty. I think there are no signs in my work that indicate that I shall fail. And I am not a person who works slowly or tamely. Drawing becomes a passion with me, and I throw myself into it more and more. I do not have great plans for the future; if for a moment I feel rising within me the desire for a life without care, for prosperity, each time I go fondly back to the trouble and the cares, to a life full of hardship, and think: It is better so; I learn more from it, and make progress. This is not the road on which one perishes. I only hope the trouble and the cares will not become unbearable, and I have confidence I shall succeed in earning enough to keep myself, not in luxury, but as one who eats his bread in the sweat of his brow.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
Life is short and so is money.
Bertolt Brecht quotes
