Life Quotes On A Winter’s Day

I love good quotes and find them very enriching.  Here are a few excellent ones about life.  I hope you find them illuminating.~

“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” ~Jim Carrey

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once. – Ashleigh Brilliant
Life is made up of sobs, sniffles and smiles, with sniffles predominating.
Life is the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for the training of a mere beginner.
Oh for a life of sensations rather than of thoughts.
The Indian Summer of life should be a little sunny and a little sad, like the season, and infinite in wealth and depth of tone – but never hustled.
There are days when it takes all you’ve got just to keep up with the losers.
We live in what is, but we find 1,000 ways not to face it. Great theatre strengthens our faculty to face it.
Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved.
In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life. It goes on.
Life is like playing a violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.
The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt.
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Life begins on the other side of despair.
Sloppy, raggedy-assed old life. I love it. I never want to die.
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
Where there is love there is life.
Life begins on the other side of despair.
The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork.
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts.

    Beth, I love quotes, too, and enjoyed this post. I had never heard the one from Jim Carey or Ashleigh Brilliant before. Loved both. Thanks for sharing and for your lovely photos.
