What is life?

What is life?

How do you define it?

How do you live it?

This world is filled with so much life, so many moments, experiences and memories of life.

All of us have a life, and we are living it.

How are you using your moment?

Are you savoring them or saving them for later?

Are you spending them or using them wisely?

Here are some thoughts about what life is.

“Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.”
― Allen Saunders

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost

“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.”
― J.K. Rowling

“Who are you to judge the life I live?
I know I'm not perfect
-and I don't live to be-
but before you start pointing fingers...
make sure your hands are clean!”
― Bob Marley

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw

“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.”
Elie Wiesel

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”
― Gilda Radner

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
― Albert Einstein
