BLAISE PASCAL, Pensees
How small a porton of our life it is that we really enjoy. In youth we are looking forward to things that are to come; in old age, we are looking backwards to things that are gone past; in manhood, although we appear indeed to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day, when we have time.
CHARLES CALEB COLTON, Lacon
In the chequered area of human experience the seasons are all mingled as in the golden age: fruit and blossom hang together; in the same moment the sickle is reaping and the seed is sprinkled; one tends the green cluster and another treads the wine-press. Nay, in each of our lives harvest and spring-time are continually one, until Death himself gathers us and sows us anew in his invisible fields. i love you quotes

You should live everyday like it's your birthday.
Life is what you celebrate. All of it. Even its end.
JOANNE HARRIS, Chocolat
There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. Life Quotes and Sayings
JACK LONDON, The Call of the Wild
Life is a dream in the night, a fear among fears,
A naked runner lost in a storm of spears.

To a flock of geese
Waddling about in the snow
Leaving a faint trace of their passage.
