One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
The greatest pleasure of life is love.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Life is like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters.
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.
It’s not through words but actions that I want to set the luster on my life.
Beware the barrenness of a busy life.
Do every act of your life as though it were the very last act of your life.
Every man, however wise, needs the advice of some sagacious friend in the affairs of life.
Happiness does not consist in amusement. In fact, it would be strange if our end were amusement, and if we were to labor and suffer hardships all our life long merely to amuse ourselves. The happy life is regarded as a life in conformity with virtue. It is a life which involves effort and is not spent in amusement.
