A. Powell Davies:
Life is just a chance to grow a soul.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
Life is rather like a tin of sardines - we're all looking for the key.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for?
Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
People living deeply have no fear of death.
The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
A good life is a main argument.
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of.
Now there is one outstandingly important fact regarding Spaceship Earth, and that is that no instruction book came with it.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.
When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
