Liberty Hyde Bailey: My life...

My life has been a continuous fulfillment of dreams. It appears that everything I saw and did has a new, and perhaps, more significant meaning, every time I see it. The earth is good. It is a privilege to live thereon.
/Liberty Hyde Bailey/

Michel de Montaigne: There is...

There is no man so good, who, were he to submit all his thoughts and actions to the laws, would not deserve hanging 10 times in his life.
/Michel de Montaigne/

George Bernard Shaw: In the...

In the arts of life man invents nothing; but in the arts of death he outdoes Nature herself, and produces by chemistry and machinery all the slaughter of plague, pestilence, and famine.
/George Bernard Shaw/

Lois Wyse: A good...

A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.
/Lois Wyse/

Colette: Total absence...

Total absence of humor renders life impossible.
/Colette/

Abraham Cahan: If it...

If it be true that our people represent a high percentage of mental vigor, the distinction is probably due, in some measure, to the extremely important part which Talmud studies have played in the spiritual life of the race.
/Abraham Cahan/

Minnie Maddern Fiske: Their rebukes...

Their rebukes have never made me angry, because I have always wondered why they did not rebuke me more. They should have. Their friendly praise has been one of the sweetest, most warming things in my life in the theater. I do go on the stage unafraid of them and with love in my heart for them.

Christiaan Barnard: I don't...

I don't believe medical discoveries are doing much to advance human life. As fast as we create ways to extend it we are inventing ways to shorten it.
/Christiaan Barnard/

David Steindl-Rast: Sometimes people...

Sometimes people get the mistaken notion that spirituality is a separate department of life, the penthouse of existence. But rightly understood, it is a vital awareness that pervades all realms of our being.
/David Steindl-Rast/

Penelope Keith: I think...

I think I'm a better actress for having friends and interests outside the theatre. I wouldn't want to live my life surrounded by other actors all the time.

Mason Cooley: The routines...

The routines of tourism are even more monotonous than those of daily life.

Emeril Lagasse: I guess...

I guess I feel that I was following my instincts, and at the same time being guided by the best. I became totally intrigued with Louisiana - the people, the food. It is a part of my life. Everything that has happened for me since moving here has just been icing on the cake.
/Emeril Lagasse/

Nicolas de Chamfort: Contemplation often...

Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.
/Nicolas de Chamfort/

Agnetha Faltskog: When I'm...

When I'm living in the world of luxury and celebrity, which is where I found myself for a large part of my life, it's a walk-on part. Not a vital necessity, like it is for so many people. I enjoy it but I can see right through it!
/Agnetha Faltskog/

Make your life a happy one. That is where success is possible to every man.
