Once when you’re born.

And once when you look death in the face.

When an idiot or a fool or a cheat is unable to dispute or challenge the truth they will often resort to childish name-calling or abuse in a pathetic attempt to ridicule and discredit the person or persons who state the truth.

Death is Peaceful, life is Harder.

One lives in the hope of becoming a memory. 
( Antonio Porchia )

There is never going to be a complete victory or defeat for evil and suffering in the world, the battle is going to go on for eternity.
So the only thing that matters is you, as an individual, doing all you can to minimise suffering and maximise happiness for everyone.

To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.
( J.K. Rowling )

And then we’ll have so much to talk about when I see you again. 

( Jeaniene Frost )

It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance. 
( Kahlil Gibran )

It’s true, I am afraid of dying.
I am afraid of the world moving forward without me, of my absence going unnoticed, or worse, being some natural force propelling life on.

Am I such a bad person for dreaming of a world that ends when I do?
I don’t mean the world ending with respect to me, but every set of eyes closing with mine. 
( Jonathan Safran Foer )

Optimism is a strategy for making a better future.
Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it’s unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so.
If you assume that there’s no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope.
If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, there is a chance you may contribute to making a better world.
The choice is yours.
( Noam Chomsky )

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

( Ann Lander )

The tragedy of life is not found in failure but complacency.
Not in you doing too much, but doing too little.
Not in you living above your means, but below your capacity.
It’s not failure but aiming too low.
That is life’s greatest tragedy.

( Benjamin E. Mayes )

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain.
An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.
( Paulo Coelho )

One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it.
But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.

When you can no more hold me by the hand

Than that you should remember and be sad.

I may not be the strongest.
I may not be the smartest.
But I’m trying my hardest.

Everyone dies alone.
That’s what it is.
It’s a door.
It’s one person wide.

When you go through it, you do it alone.
But it doesn’t mean you’ve got to be alone before you go through the door.
And believe me, you aren’t alone on the other side.
( Jim Butcher )

Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone.
And do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

There is no elevator to success.
You have to take the stairs.

I am convinced that most people do not grow up.
We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up.

( Maya Angelou )

The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self-respect springs.

It’s acknowledging the past but looking forward.

It’s taking a chance that we will make mistakes but believing that we all deserve to be forgiven.

No one else can see the world the way you see it.
No one else can feel your life the way you feel it.

It can be a dangerous and destructive guest.
( John O’Donohue )

There is a very fine line between loving life and being greedy for it.
