I know that I come from mid-20th century America, urban, specifically downtown New York, specifically an Italian-American area, Roman Catholic - that's who I am. And a part of what I know is there's a decency to people who tried to make a living in the kind of world that was around us and also the Skid Row area of the Bowery; it impressed me.
I learnt to stop fantasising about the perfect job or the perfect relationship because that can actually be an excuse for not living.
Alain de Botton
We are actually living in a million parallel realities every single minute.
For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings.
Stupid people do make me lose my temper and most people are stupid, fortunately for me. It's made it easier for me to make a living.
Science is like a flashlight in the hands of people living in a huge balloon. They can illuminate anything in the balloon, but cannot shine it outside the balloon to see where it is floating - or if it is floating at all.
The beauty about living in Atlanta is that there aren't too many paparazzi here; you can just relax. And that really works for me and my children.
But my strength was in singing and songwriting, which was a new discovery for me when I was 18. And I decided if I pursued songwriting, which is what was closest to my heart, then there would be no competition. I would just live my life being myself and living my dream.
I have always believed that technology should do the hard work - discovery, organization, communication - so users can do what makes them happiest: living and loving, not messing with annoying computers! That means making our products work together seamlessly.
Right now I'm living my boyhood dream, which was to play for a European club. The fact that it's a huge club like Barcelona makes it a tremendous honour. I like everything about the city: the climate, the people. It's quite similar to Brazil, which helps a lot. There's even a beach!
True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.
I'm half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times.
Everyone is living for everyone else now. They're doing stuff so they can tell other people about it. I don't get all that social media stuff, I've always got other things I want to do - odd jobs around the house. No one wants to hear about that.
Today, I am blessed to be living a dream. And yet, if it all went away tomorrow, I know I would still have peace.

There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
I was dying but suddenly had a second chance at living.
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.

C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
