Quote of the Day
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
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.
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.
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.
Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
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.
The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.
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.'
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
Henry David Thoreau
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.
Rather be dead than cool.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.
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.
The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.
Lois McMaster Bujold
When I was a boy the Dead Sea was only sick.
You play a 'lowdown dirty shame slow and lonesome, my mama dead, my papa across the sea I ain't dead but I'm just supposed to be' blues. You can take that same blues, make it uptempo, a shuffle blues, that's what rock n' roll did with it. So blues ain't going nowhere. Ain't goin' nowhere.
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?
Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.
Long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead.
John Maynard Keynes
Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead.
Be a dreamer. If you don't know how to dream, you're dead.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
