Quotes And Sayings About Life

Human wisdom has been recorded through history in many quotes and sayings about life. These are some of those ways that humanity has treasured our collective wisdom for our own benefit and pleasure. Quotes and sayings are spontaneous, timeless and wise expressions that apply anywhere in the world. They inspire us. They unveil situations that were in front of us all the time. That’s why quotes and sayings enrich our lives and expand our understanding. They make us think, laugh or cry, but we won’t remain indifferent to them. The following quotes and sayings about life will provide you with some moments of contentment.

  1. “The healthiest response to life is joy.” Deepak Chopra, Indian Medical Doctor, (1946 – Present) How many times do we react with anger, frustration or envy to something or someone when we had the choice to respond positively? The worst part is that when this happened, we did it in front of someone, exposing our limitations unnecessarily. Responding with joy to life in every situation is not easy, but it can definitely be practiced and done. Deepak Chopra is right. We must challenge life with our best face.

  2. "Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French writer (1900-1944) Physical attraction is one of the main factors that encourage couples to initiate a first conversation. The unrealistic media coverage showing altered, idealistic images of famous people has a big effect on society’s choices to think they can decide who is “handsome” and who is not. The problem begins when couples discover that they are not compatible.The physical impression distorted their first sight, preventing each one from knowing who the person they fell in love with really is. A relationship where both partners look at the same direction will make them stay and grow together. 

  3. "It is not length of life, but depth of life." Ralph Waldo Emerson, American writer, philosopher, and poet (1803-1882) A short life lived with intensity enriches not only the person who lived it, it benefits all those around them, compared with a superficial, but long life. 

  4. "May you live all the days of your life." Jonathan Swift, Irish writer, (1667-1745) How many people have the ability to enjoy their lives at their fullest? Jonathan Swift’s message states that every moment counts. We control our reactions toward positive or negative experiences, no matter what. We choose to be happy, happier, or miserable. No one else can do it for us.

  5. "My life is every moment of my life. It is not a culmination of the past." Hugh Leonard, Irish dramatist and television writer, (1926-2009) Many people live the present afraid or worried for the future, or as a victim of the past, not realizing that living a good quality present is the base for a joyful future.
