Quote of the Day
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive.
This generation is so dead. You ask a kid, 'What are you doing this Saturday?' and they'll be playing video games or watching cable, instead of building model cars or airplanes or doing something creative. Kids today never say, 'Man, I'm really into remote-controlled steamboats.'
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.
You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.
If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.
Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq. We did. I promised to refocus on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11. We have. We've blunted the Taliban's momentum in Afghanistan, and in 2014, our longest war will be over. A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.
Rather be dead than cool.
Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy - which many believe goes hand in hand with it - will be dead as well.
To me, the magic of photography, per se, is that you can capture an instant of a second that couldn't exist before and couldn't exist after. It's almost like a cowboy that draws his gun. You draw a second before or after, you miss and you're dead - not them. To me, photography's always like that.
What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?
Only the dead have seen the end of the war.
People say satire is dead. It's not dead; it's alive and living in the White House.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
It's funny how most people love the dead, once you are dead you are made for life.
Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead.
The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.
If I cry, it's because I'm very angry and I can't do anything about it because I've run into a dead end. That's when the tears would come down.
John F. Kennedy
