Because my mother had a stroke last week, and she is, so to speak, scripting her final chapter, which is currently overflowing with love, laughter and song, I can’t help but to think about life. And as I do, as I reflect on the meaning of life, a life well-lived, a happy life, a balanced life, I realize that within each of us is the desire to move forward in life; a drive to search for the truth of that which we are, to unearth our essence, to know why we are here. We have a need to become whole, holy healed, to find meaning and purpose; to live our life to the fullest.
Here are 10 quotes that speak to the mystery of life, complete with laughter as well as splinters.
Life is not always fair. Sometimes you get a splinter even sliding down a rainbow. ~ Terri Guillemets
My life has a superb cast but I can’t figure out the plot. ~ Ashleigh Brilliant
Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while. ~ Author Unknown
Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: “I am with you kid. Let’s go.” ~Maya Angelou
Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh. ~George Bernard Shaw
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. ~Havelock Ellis
Life is like a ten-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use. ~Charles Schulz
People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
Life is the sum of all your choices. ~Albert Camus
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. ~Audrey Hepburn
