I don’t care much for things I can’t take with me after I die. Give me love. Moments. Purpose. Things that’ll settle in the soul.

You don’t need to travel the world or do big things to live an extraordinary life. Be present. Notice the beauty around you. Be curious. Try the things that interest you. Be brave. Start the things you’ve been putting off. Create something. Learn something. Teach something. And do it all for the love of it.

Life can still be beautiful, meaningful, fun, and fulfilling even if things don’t turn out the way you planned.

Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today: You matter. You’re important. You’re loved. And your presence on this earth makes a difference, whether you see it or not.

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.

I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.

Make your life a mission, not an intermission.

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.

What you do today is important, because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

There is more to life than increasing its speed.

Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.

On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a playful, joyous energy behind what you do.

Words may show a man’s wit, but actions his meaning.

And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.

There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life.
