Be alive!

When you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

Live boldly

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Live to the fullest!

See, the problem with doing things to prolong your life is that all the extra years come at the end, when you’re old.

Live your live to the fullest! Enjoy the perks of life now and do not constantly worry about the future. Living long is not worth anything as long as you merely exist. Living is only worth anything as long as you truly live.

Don’t waste your time preparing for growing old securely. Live!

Life is simple.

The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.

Allan Watts

Live now

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

It’s not about money

I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making’ a life.

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
