Quote of the Day
You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.
Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing.
The only rule is don't be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.
Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Henry Van Dyke
To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.

Henri Frederic Amiel

Sarah Louise Delany

Love is so short, forgetting is so long.
I have short goals - to get better every day, to help my teammates every day - but my only ultimate goal is to win an NBA championship. It's all that matters. I dream about it. I dream about it all the time, how it would look, how it would feel. It would be so amazing.
What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you're going to have quarrels, and on some things, you're just going to have to agree to disagree.

I feel like life is really short, and it's important to enjoy yourself and embrace whatever comes your way, whether it's a challenging day or a great day, just welcome it with open arms. No matter who you are, you can't escape challenges; they are part of life.

I believe that if you don't derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don't come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don't feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to waste.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
