The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
The difference between sex and death is that with death you can do it alone and no one is going to make fun of you.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
In every life we have some trouble. But when you worry you make it double.
Don't worry, be happy
There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.
The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, and forgiveness.
