Since it is not granted to us to live long, let us transmit to posterity some memorial that we have at least lived.
E. Joseph Cossman
For years I had lived in my body half-consciously, ignoring it mostly, dismissing its agendas wherever I could, and forever pressing it into the service of mental conceptions that resulted, almost as a by-product, sometimes in its pleasuring and sometimes in its abuse.
It was R.E.M. who showed other Eighties bands how to get away with ignoring the rules - they lived in some weird town nobody never heard of, they didn't play power chords, they probably couldn't even spell 'spandex.' All they had was songs.
I talked to women who lived there, to get their speech patterns and outlook on life - and how narrow that is.
Growing up, I lived a moderate lifestyle with my family.
Even the holy men who lived before the coming of Christ understood that God had in mind plans of peace for the human race.
I would find myself getting deeply distressed if I lived in hindsight all the time.
I don't write anything that I haven't lived. In terms of integrity, you have to write what you live. And if you write beyond what you live, it is theory. And theory is not helpful. It is just not.
France has lived a long time - eight or nine centuries - and yet art in France, too, was derivative up until the 19th Century.
And I have lived since - as you have - in a period of cold war, during which we have ensured by our achievements in the science and technology of destruction that a third act in this tragedy of war will result in the peace of extinction.
Lester B. Pearson
Before September 11, terrorism was viewed as something ugly but you lived with it.
When I was a very little boy, I lived underneath the air pattern of LaGuardia airport in New York and I watched the planes fly to their destinations. I was in love with the design of these airplanes.
I don't think I was funny until college. I lived with some Harvard MD/PhD students - they were so smart, and what I contributed to the house was, I was the funny one.
In all my study of history, I have never found a time or place I would rather have lived than now.
Orson Scott Card
Thanks to the restored gospel, we know our spirits lived before we were born into this mortal existence.
With success came an ever-growing burden of responsibility. I lived with a near-constant low-level anxiety that I would make a mistake that would not only threaten my career, but also my brothers' - not to mention the livelihoods of many people who work with us or for us.
I don't know where my father is from. I just don't. He's lived in so many countries.
Since its first day as a nation, Israel has lived under a cloud of aggression from militant extremists and hostile neighboring governments.
I would like to do my own daily talk show. Wisdom is the gift of ageing; no young person can have or buy it. My success was and is self-evident. I'm alive. I've lived. I've thrived and have grown as a person. I'm now healthier than ever. Who can argue with that?
I have been interested in fashion since I was a kid. Then I lived in London, where it was more about costume and a personal statement of who you are than about fashion.
Every Christmas should begin with the sound of bells, and when I was a child mine always did. But they were sleigh bells, not church bells, for we lived in a part of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where there were no churches.
I have been to the theater more since I have lived in New York than I ever really did in London working on a television show.
Richard C. Armitage
I've lived with boys and girls, and I find that boys are generally cleaner than girls. Generally! This is a big generalization!
I lived in America for a long time before I started working as an actor. Some actors show up on set and have never done an American accent before, so they rely on a slew of technical mechanisms. Part of what makes an accent is understanding why people speak that way - you have to understand the culture.
I was fat because I lived in the Midwest in the 1970s, and everyone was a little fat then and only getting fatter.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
