And did you get what you wanted in this life even so? I did And what is it you wanted? To call myself beloved To feel myself beloved on the earth.

Everett McKinley Dirksen
Parents learn a lot from their children about coping with life.
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
Rainer Maria Rilke
True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness
Biography is the only true history.
Every life has a story.
If you don't know [your family's] history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree.
Life is just one damned thing after another.
Just as a tree without roots is dead, a people without history or cultur also becomes a dead people.

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Desire is half of life, indifference is half of death.
You should always learn, with life comes wisdom and with wisdom comes the courage to live your life selflessly. The more you learn about yourself and the experiences surrounding your life the more opportunities you have to make your life better and more fulfilling.
Read no history: nothing but biography, for that is life without theory.
Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
We are the hero of our own story.
There are three ingredients to the good life; learning, earning, and yearning.
Life in abundance comes only through great love.
Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.
Life is what happens to you while you're working for your future.
Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow.
Life is pain, princess. . . anyone who says differently is selling something
Wesley The Princess Bride

Sir Winston Churchill
Love absolutely everything that ever happens in your life
Many of life's circumstances are created by three basic choices: the disciplines you choose to keep, the people you choose to be with; and, the laws you choose to obey.
You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.
There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Ars Longa, Vita Brevis - Art (is) Long, Life (is) Short
How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become -- to be at last, and to die in the fullness of his being.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The notion of looking on at life has always been hateful to me. What am I if I am not a participant? In order to be, I must participate.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possibly be - in baseball and in life.
