Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
May you live all the days of your life.
I have a very good life - I'm lucky enough not to be deprived.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.

So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
Life is what happens to you while you're planning on doing something else.
The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies.
Choose a career you love and you will never have to go to work.
I know you think my life is good 'cause my diamond piece,
But my life been good since I started finding peace.
