We cannot truly face life until we face the fact that it will be taken away from us.
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
We deem those happy who from the experience of life have learned to bear its ills, without being overcome by them.
Sandra Day O'Connor
We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.
We have no choice of what color we're born or who our parents are or whether we're rich or poor. What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we're here.
David Bailey, British Photographer
We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heartthrobs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Sir Winston Churchill
We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.
We will often find compensation if we think more of what life has given us and less about what life has taken away.
Henry David Thoreau
Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
