I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

I have resolved that from this day on, I will do all the business I can honestly, have all the fun I can reasonably, do all the good I can willingly, and save my digestion by thinking pleasantly.

I like the man who faces what he must, With steps triumphant and a heart of cheer; Who fights the daily battle without fear.

I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.

I recommend you to take care of the minutes, for the hours will take care of themselves.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.

I wish I could stand on a busy corner, hat in hand, and beg people to throw me all their wasted hours.

I work every day-or at least I force myself into my office or room. I may get nothing done, but you don't earn bonuses without putting in time. Nothing may come for three months, but you don't get the fourth without it.

If we cannot meet our everyday surroundings with equanimity and pleasure and grow each day in some useful direction, then ... life is on the road toward misfortune, misery and destruction.

If we only knew the real value of a day.

If you are not happy here and now, you never will be.

If you do the same thing every day at the same time for the same length of time, you'll save yourself from many a sink. Routine is a condition of survival.

If, every day, I dare to remember that I am here on loan, that this house, this hillside, these minutes are all leased to me, not given, I will never despair.
