G. K. Chesterton quotes
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
Ah, Hope! What would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of today, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.
François de la Rochefoucauld quotes

Albert Schweitzer quotes
None meet life honestly and few heroically.
Clarence S. Darrow quotes
Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honours depend upon heaven.
He lives most life whoever breathes most air.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning quotes
A free life cannot acquire many possessions, because this is not easy to do without servility to mobs or monarchs...
Everything is changeable, everything appears and disappears; there is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death.
There is no meaning to life except the meaning man gives his life by unfolding of his powers.
Erich Fromm quotes
