To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.
We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.
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.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau
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!
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.
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.
