The lifetime of a human being is measured by decades, the lifetime of the Sun is a hundred million times longer. Compared to a star, we are like mayflies, fleeting ephemeral creatures who live out their lives in the course of a single day.Carl Sagan Longer Life Sayings By Carl Sagan: The lifetime of a human being is measured by decades, the lifetime of the Sun
In a world of change and decay not even the man of faith can be completely happy. Instinctively he seeks the unchanging and is bereaved at the passing of dear familiar things. Yet much as we may deplore the lack of stability in all earthly things, in a fallen world such as this the very ability to change is a golden treasure, a gift from God of such fabulous worth as to call for constant thanksgiving. For human beings the whole possibility of redemption lies in their ability to change. To move across from one sort of person to another is the essence of repentance; the liar becomes truthful, the thief honest, the lewd pure, the proud humble. The whole moral texture of the life is altered. The thoughts, the desires, the affections are transformed, and the man is no longer what he had been before.A.W. Tozer Longer Life Sayings By A.W. Tozer: In a world of change and decay not even the man of faith can be
Our reverence for independence takes no account of the reality of what happens in life: sooner or later, independence will become impossible. Serious illness or infirmity will strike. It is as inevitable as sunset. And then a new question arises: If independence is what we live for, what do we do when it can no longer be sustained?Atul Gawande Longer Life Sayings By Atul Gawande: Our reverence for independence takes no account of the reality of what happens in life:
Imagine living your life without the fear of being judged by others. You no longer rule your behavior according to what others may think about you. You are no longer responsible for anyone's opinion. You have no need to control anyone, and no one controls you, either.Miguel Ruiz Longer Life Sayings By Miguel Ruiz: Imagine living your life without the fear of being judged by others. You no longer
There are some good things to be said about walking. Not many, but some. Walking takes longer, for example, than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. I have a friend who's always in a hurry; he never gets anywhere. Walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. You have time to observe the details. The utopian technologists foresee a future for us in which distance is annihilated. ... To be everywhere at once is to be nowhere forever, if you ask me.Edward Abbey Longer Life Sayings By Edward Abbey: There are some good things to be said about walking. Not many, but some. Walking
Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went through is now like something from the distant past. We're so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about everyday, too many new things we have to learn. But still, no matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away. They remain with us forever, like a touchstone.Haruki Murakami Longer Life Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went
If we know who we are and have gone through a process of self-identification in accordance with the creator's plan, we will no longer undervalue ourselves or be afraidSunday Adelaja Longer Life Sayings By Sunday Adelaja: If we know who we are and have gone through a process of self-identification in
If we remain surrendered to God, we've already died to everything decay and death could ever threaten to take away. Our treasure is no longer in things that moths can eat and thieves can steal (Matthew 6:19-20). Our heart is no longer set on things that aging and misfortune can affect. Our life is securely hidden in Christ, whose love never changes (Colossians 3:1-3). In fact, to the extent that we're surrendered to God every moment, we've "been crucified with Christ and [we] no longer live, but Christ lives in [us]" (Galatians 2:20).Gregory A. Boyd Longer Life Sayings By Gregory A. Boyd: If we remain surrendered to God, we've already died to everything decay and death could
Research students are numbered in the hundreds of thousands-soon to be millions -and they are no longer distributed superficially and at random over the globe, but are functionally linked together in a vast organic system that will remain in the future indispensable to the life of the community.Pierre Teilhard De Chardin Longer Life Sayings By Pierre Teilhard De Chardin: Research students are numbered in the hundreds of thousands-soon to be millions -and they are
I have never had any hero in my life or in photography. I just travel, I look and everything influences me. Everything influences me. I am quite different now than I was 40 years ago. For 40 years I have been traveling. I never stay in one country more than three months. Why? Because I was interested in seeing, and if I stay longer I become blind.Josef Koudelka Longer Life Sayings By Josef Koudelka: I have never had any hero in my life or in photography. I just travel,
When life is good do not take it for granted as it will pass. Be mindful, be compassionate and nurture the circumstances that find you in this good time so it will last longer. When life falls apart always remember that this too will pass. Life will have its unexpected turns.Ajahn Brahm Longer Life Sayings By Ajahn Brahm: When life is good do not take it for granted as it will pass. Be
Use the information you've been given as an individual, but NEVER let what you've heard or read or experienced in the past prevent you from answering the call on your life.

You are responsible for your life. That includes the voice inside you and everything it calls you to do. Don't ignore that voice to follow rules that don't fit. When a jacket doesn't fit anymore, it's time to donate it. Same principle applies for rules which no longer serve you.

You don't have to curse the rules or condemn them. In fact, there might be someone else who would benefit from them at the exact moment you no longer need them.

Just step into all that you can be and all that you can do.
Stephen Lovegrove Longer Life Sayings By Stephen Lovegrove: Use the information you've been given as an individual, but NEVER let what you've heard
We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world; and we had to shoot it to pieces. The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our hearts. We are cut off from activity, from striving, from progress. We believe in such things no longer, we believe in the war.
- All Quiet On The Western Front, Ch. 5
Erich Maria Remarque Longer Life Sayings By Erich Maria Remarque: We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world; and we had
Each religion claims the future for its followers; or, at least, the good thereof. The evil is for those benighted ones who will have none of it; seeing the light the true believers worship, as the fishes see the stars, but dimly. The religions come and the religions pass, and the civilisations come and pass, and naught endures but the world and human nature. Ah! if man would but see that hope is from within and not from without - that he himself must work out his own salvation! He is there, and within him is the breath of life and a knowledge of good and evil as good and evil is to him. Thereon let him build and stand erect, and not cast himself before the image of some unknown God, modelled like his poor self, but with a bigger brain to think the evil thing, and a longer arm to do it.H. Rider Haggard Longer Life Sayings By H. Rider Haggard: Each religion claims the future for its followers; or, at least, the good thereof. The
I think social media is the enemy of anyone going through a split. Technology is no longer just how we connect with each other, it's how we disconnect with each other. You used to be able to break up with someone (a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, or friend), and he or she virtually disappeared from your life. And that's the way it's supposed to be, isn't it?Brandi Glanville Longer Life Sayings By Brandi Glanville: I think social media is the enemy of anyone going through a split. Technology is
As a student of business administration, I know that there is a law of evolution for organizations as stringent and inevitable as anything in life. The longer one exists, the more it grinds out restrictions that slow its own functions. It reaches entropy in a state of total narcissism. Only the people sufficiently far out in the field get anything done, and every time they do they are breaking half a dozen rules in the process.Roger Zelazny Longer Life Sayings By Roger Zelazny: As a student of business administration, I know that there is a law of evolution
The day before is what we bring to the day we're actually living through, life is a matter of carrying along all those days-before just as someone might carry stones, and when we can no longer cope with the load, the work is done, the last day is the only one that is not the day before another day.Jose Saramago Longer Life Sayings By Jose Saramago: The day before is what we bring to the day we're actually living through, life
You no longer speak of your old friends, your Council, your home. I fear that you are forgetting them, and forgetting your reason for coming here."

Hunter sighed. "It's difficult to talk about them, they don't belong here. Anyway, I thought you wanted me to give up my old life. Congratulations, you've won."

The Abate smiled sadly. "Perhaps I did, I wanted you to abandon your violent past and adopt our ways. But I see that you are giving up everything and taking on nothing. What are you afraid of George?
K.S. Marsden Longer Life Sayings By K.S. Marsden: You no longer speak of your old friends, your Council, your home. I fear that
But then you ... you come along. You screwed up my plan. Suddenly my life's not liveable, it's not fine and I'm no longer happy. My life's worse, much more worse than before ... and it's all because of you. I'm scared of you. I run from you. And I push you away ... but why? Because I am scared of you, I'm scared of my feelings for you ... I'm scared of losing you. But mostly ... mostly I'm scared that if I don't hold on too tight ... I'm scared that I'll lose you forever.Joanne McClean Longer Life Sayings By Joanne McClean: But then you ... you come along. You screwed up my plan. Suddenly my life's
The secret of wisdom is to be overly curious, like a cat--to take the time to look closely, to use all your senses to see and to touch and to taste and to smell and to hear, and to die because you were overly curious. To keep on wondering...about the afterlife. That is our only mission. Only one. If we don't wonder, then we will never, ever be curious. Then, if like the cat, you wondered too far...you simply no longer will have to ever wonder again. Your mission will be fulfilled. All because of curiosity.

--from The Wise-ass Man who butchered Eve Merriam's wisdom...and Her Secret
Stan Sudan Longer Life Sayings By Stan Sudan: The secret of wisdom is to be overly curious, like a cat--to take the time
Whatever actions may have been appropriate for your survival when you were a child, are probably no longer necessary. However, the ego cannot know that. It is like a computer program, reacting to life robotically; doing what it deems is most applicable in the present circumstance, according to past experience. The problem is, it often blocks you from feeling what is appropriate in the present moment, through its preconceived notions of what worked best in the past, and may not necessarily pertain any longer. For example you may resist intimacy now by pushing others away, in effect shut them out, because as a five year old you did the same in order to protect your vulnerability.Paula Horan Longer Life Sayings By Paula Horan: Whatever actions may have been appropriate for your survival when you were a child, are
5 Fieldworker life expectancy: 49 years. Antonio Velasco, M.D., Farm Workers in the 1990s. Forty-nine is akin to Somalia (United Nations report) and thirty years less than in the U.S. (CIA World Factbook, 2008). Camels and catfish live longer.David Marin Longer Life Sayings By David Marin: 5 Fieldworker life expectancy: 49 years. Antonio Velasco, M.D., Farm Workers in the 1990s. Forty-nine
Integrity means being whole, unbroken, undivided. It describes a person who has united the different parts of his or her personality, so there is no longer a split in the soul ... For the person of integrity, life may not be easy but it is simple: Figure out what is right and do it. All other considerations come in second.Harold S. Kushner Longer Life Sayings By Harold S. Kushner: Integrity means being whole, unbroken, undivided. It describes a person who has united the different
When she looked longer at herself in her new dress, it was she but she living a different life, the life she would have lived if she had stayed in Prague.Milan Kundera Longer Life Sayings By Milan Kundera: When she looked longer at herself in her new dress, it was she but she
There will come a time when man is no longer concerned only with survival, when he will once more be curious as to who came before him, what life was like a thousand years ago, and he will seek out answers for a hundred years or so, but humans' curiosity has always driven them to find answers.Julie Kagawa Longer Life Sayings By Julie Kagawa: There will come a time when man is no longer concerned only with survival, when
Alas, Gulietta, this was an American frog of the last quarter of the twentieth century, a time when wishing apparently no longer led to anything, and Leigh-Cheri eventually named it Prince Charming after that son-of-a-bitch who never comes though.Tom Robbins Longer Life Sayings By Tom Robbins: Alas, Gulietta, this was an American frog of the last quarter of the twentieth century,
It is conceivable at least that a late generation, such as we presumably are, has particular need of the sketch, in order not to be strangled to death by inherited conceptions which preclude new births ... The sketch has direction, but no ending; the sketch as reflection of a view of life that is no longer conclusive, or is not yet conclusive.Max Frisch Longer Life Sayings By Max Frisch: It is conceivable at least that a late generation, such as we presumably are, has
So let us decide whether you want a shelter, a safety zone, which will no longer yield conflict, whether you want to escape from the present conflict to enter a condition in which there shall be no conflict; or whether you are unaware, unconscious of this conflict in which you exist. If you are unconscious of the conflict, that is, the battle that is taking place between that self and the environment, if you are unconscious of that battle, then why do you seek further remedies? Remain unconscious.Jiddu Krishnamurti Longer Life Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: So let us decide whether you want a shelter, a safety zone, which will no
There are many unknowns in life. This is patently clear again and again when we face vocational transitions. We cannot see around the bend in the road. We make decisions about our lives with implications for the lives of those we love and those for whom we have some responsibilities, and there are so many unknown variables. But there is one key variable that can be a known factor in our lives: The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore. (Ps 121:8) On this we can depend. It will be the same now and for each transition of our lives. If we believe this, it will be evident because fear will no longer co-opt our lives.Gordon T. Smith Longer Life Sayings By Gordon T. Smith: There are many unknowns in life. This is patently clear again and again when we
So quickly? Todd cleared away another wave of tears and looked down at the body on the table. Dempsey's eye was still half-open, but it didn't look back at him any longer. Where there'd been a sliver of bright life, where there'd been mischief and shared rituals - where, in short, there'd been Dempsey - there was nothing.Clive Barker Longer Life Sayings By Clive Barker: So quickly? Todd cleared away another wave of tears and looked down at the body
I no longer pursue happiness, for it alludes me in every occasion. It is as if I'm trying to find something that is invisible, and sometimes I can't help to wonder if I'm the only one who it is oblivious toDave Guerrero Longer Life Sayings By Dave Guerrero: I no longer pursue happiness, for it alludes me in every occasion. It is as
When women hear those words, an old, old memory is stirred and brought back to life. The memory is of our absolute, undeniable, and irrevocable kinship with the wild feminine, a relationship which may have become ghostly from neglect, buried by over-domestication, outlawed by the surrounding culture, or no longer understood anymore. We may have forgotten her names, we may not answer when she calls ours, but in our bones we know her, we yearn toward her, we know she belongs to us and we to her.Clarissa Pinkola Estes Longer Life Sayings By Clarissa Pinkola Estes: When women hear those words, an old, old memory is stirred and brought back to
Crying makes problems seem longer, and laughing makes problems seem shorter. Therefore in life if you cannot find a way out of your problems just take a short cut through them: that shortcut is
laughter.
Moffat Machingura Longer Life Sayings By Moffat Machingura: Crying makes problems seem longer, and laughing makes problems seem shorter. Therefore in life if
I spend my life studying that book, and every book I've written has in some sense been a book about the Bible, and that's what I mean by reclaiming its value and its essence for a world that no longer treats it literally and no longer reads it traditionally.John Shelby Spong Longer Life Sayings By John Shelby Spong: I spend my life studying that book, and every book I've written has in some
For a good part of my life, I had a share in this idea that I have not yet quite abandoned. But there came a time when I could not protect myself, and indeed did not wish to protect myself, from the onslaught of reality. Marxism, I conceded, had its intellectual and philosophical and ethical glories, but they were in the past. Something of the heroic period might perhaps be retained, but the fact had to be faced: there was no longer any guide to the future. In addition, the very concept of a total solution had led to the most appalling human sacrifices, and to the invention of excuses for them. Those of us who had sought a rational alternative to religion had reached a terminus that was comparably dogmatic. What else was to be expected of something that was produced by the close cousins of chimpanzees? Infallibility? Thus, dear reader, if you have come this far and found your own faith undermined - as I hope - I am willing to say that to some extent I know what you are going through.Christopher Hitchens Longer Life Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: For a good part of my life, I had a share in this idea that
The larger a star the shorter its life, but all the more fascinating its death. As it collapses within it's body, the infalling material can be no longer be compressed; the star is blown to pieces; its shattered mass realeases out ward at the speed of light.Kelly Easton Longer Life Sayings By Kelly Easton: The larger a star the shorter its life, but all the more fascinating its death.
You are a child no longer, whatever you might wish. You are a woman with a woman's body, and you do not think or feel as you did back there at Sevenwaters, when you ran wild in the forest and the trees spread their canopy to shelter you. Men will look at you. Come to terms with it, Sorcha. You cannot hide forever. They will look at you with desire in their eyes. You were taken against your will, and it damaged you. But life goes on.Juliet Marillier Longer Life Sayings By Juliet Marillier: You are a child no longer, whatever you might wish. You are a woman with
We never accept the unaccepted, that which makes us uncomfortable. We love to ignore things till they can no longer be ignored.Sandeep Sharma Longer Life Sayings By Sandeep Sharma: We never accept the unaccepted, that which makes us uncomfortable. We love to ignore things
I was very far away. My real life had gone underground and could not be seen by anybody. The person at the surface that everybody saw was no longer me.Philip O Ceallaigh Longer Life Sayings By Philip O Ceallaigh: I was very far away. My real life had gone underground and could not be
Today, investing is no longer just a good idea for women. It is a must-have.Robert Kiyosaki Longer Life Sayings By Robert Kiyosaki: Today, investing is no longer just a good idea for women. It is a must-have.
Some of us try desperately to hold on to ourselves, to live for ourselves. We look so bedraggled and pathetic doing it, hanging on to the dead branch of a bank account for dear life, afraid to risk ourselves on the untried wings of giving. We don't think we can live generously because we have never tried. But the sooner we start the better, for we are going to have to give up our lives finally, and the longer we wait the less time we have for the soaring and swooping life of grace.Eugene H. Peterson Longer Life Sayings By Eugene H. Peterson: Some of us try desperately to hold on to ourselves, to live for ourselves. We
I've reached a point, where I no longer believe I am unworthy of greatness,
If the people I'm surrounded by; aren't Intune with my growth, I'm happy to let go,
If the job I'm working, isn't bringing out the best in me, I'm happy to find something that will.
If I complain about one thing, I must be grateful for 2 more.
if I can't always have everything I want, I'll make damn sure I have everything I need.
If life's Thunder hands me tears, I'll be sure to laugh through it.
If I lose some, I trust it's because i am about to win more.
If there is darkness, the light is almost in reach.
Every obstacle, is the gateway to concious living and every heartache is the gateway to the most empowered love you could feel.
Nikki Rowe Longer Life Sayings By Nikki Rowe: I've reached a point, where I no longer believe I am unworthy of greatness, If
Not long ago, I reread Marguerite Yourcenar's Memoirs of Hadrian. I was amazed to discover what she had written in her note about the difficult composition of the book
which had taken her many decades:
Another thing virtually impossible, to take a feminine character as a central figure ... Women's lives are much too limited or else too secret. If a woman does recount her own life she is promptly reproached for no longer being truly feminine.
We all struggle with this
still. The woman who chooses to write disguised as a male character is hoping to avoid the problem. But you cannot avoid the problem of being a woman.
Erica Jong Longer Life Sayings By Erica Jong: Not long ago, I reread Marguerite Yourcenar's Memoirs of Hadrian. I was amazed to discover
A piece of freedom is no longer enough for human beings ... unlike bread, a slice of liberty does not finish hunger. Freedom is like life. It cannot be had in installments. Freedom is indivisible
we have it all, or we are not free.
Martin Luther King Jr. Longer Life Sayings By Martin Luther King Jr.: A piece of freedom is no longer enough for human beings ... unlike bread, a
Everyone grieves in different ways. For some, it could take longer or shorter. I do know it never disappears. An ember still smolders inside me. Most days, I don't notice it, but, out of the blue, it'll flare to life.Maria V. Snyder Longer Life Sayings By Maria V. Snyder: Everyone grieves in different ways. For some, it could take longer or shorter. I do
I can find no words for what I feel. My consciousness is withdrawn into itself; I hear my heart beating, and my life passing. It seems to me that I have become a statue on the banks of the river of time, that I am the spectator of some mystery, and shall issue from it old, or no longer capable of age.Henri Frederic Amiel Longer Life Sayings By Henri Frederic Amiel: I can find no words for what I feel. My consciousness is withdrawn into itself;
Failure no longer will be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision for my body to tolerate pain neither has it made any provision for my life to suffer failure. Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which will guide me out of the shadows into the sunlight of wealth, position, and happiness far beyond my most extravagant dreams until even the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides will seem no more than my just reward.Og Mandino Longer Life Sayings By Og Mandino: Failure no longer will be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision
At present sinners banish the remembrance and thought of death, and thus seek for peace (although they never find it) by leading a life of sin; but when they shall be in the agonies of death, about to enter into eternity, "when distress cometh upon them, they will seek for peace, and there will be none," then can they no longer fly from their evil conscience; they will seek peace, but what peace can be found by a soul laden with sins, which sting it like so many vipers?Alfonso Maria De Liguori Longer Life Sayings By Alfonso Maria De Liguori: At present sinners banish the remembrance and thought of death, and thus seek for peace
You might say that S. has only himself to blame, that it is entirely his choice to fight this fight, to live a life of vigilant somnolence or somnolent vigilantism, to allow himself to be satisfied with Sola in the margins of his manuscripts instead of in his arms, and you might be right. But you ought to understand, too, that there's an attrition that takes place inside, one in which options and choices and even desires are ground ever smaller until finally their existence can no longer be confirmed by observation or weight or displacement but only by faith. Until desire is a ghost.Doug Dorst Longer Life Sayings By Doug Dorst: You might say that S. has only himself to blame, that it is entirely his
One should not search for an abstract meaning of life ... Life can be made meaningful in a threefold way: first, through what we give to life ... second, by what we take from the world ... third, through the stand we take toward a fate we no longer can change ...Viktor E. Frankl Longer Life Sayings By Viktor E. Frankl: One should not search for an abstract meaning of life ... Life can be made
Human infants begin to develop specific attachments to particular people around the third quarter of their first year of life. This is the time at which the infant begins to protest if handed to a stranger and tends to cling to the mother or other adults with whom he is familiar. The mother usually provides a secure base to which the infant can return, and, when she is present, the infant is bolder in both exploration and play than when she is absent. If the attachment figure removes herself, even briefly, the infant usually protests. Longer separations, as when children have been admitted to hospital, cause a regular sequence of responses first described by Bowlby. Angry protest is succeeded by a period of despair in which the infant is quietly miserable and apathetic. After a further period, the infant becomes detached and appears no longer to care about the absent attachmentAnthony Storr Longer Life Sayings By Anthony Storr: Human infants begin to develop specific attachments to particular people around the third quarter of
In this, the late afternoon of my life, I wonder: am I casting a longer shadow or is my shadow casting a shorter me?Robert Breault Longer Life Sayings By Robert Breault: In this, the late afternoon of my life, I wonder: am I casting a longer
And so it goes. And so it goes. And so it goes. And so it goes goes goes goes goes tick tock tick tock tick tock and one day we no longer let time serve us, we serve time and we are slaves of the schedule, worshipers of the sun's passing, bound into a life predicated on restrictions because the system will not function if we don't keep the schedule tight.Harlan Ellison Longer Life Sayings By Harlan Ellison: And so it goes. And so it goes. And so it goes. And so it
My benefactor said that when a man embarks on the paths of sorcery he becomes aware, in a gradual manner, that ordinary life has been forever left behind; that knowledge is indeed a frightening affair; that the means of the ordinary world are no longer a buffer for him; and that he must adopt a new way of life if he is going to survive. The first thing he ought to do, at that point, is to want to become a warrior ...Carlos Castaneda Longer Life Sayings By Carlos Castaneda: My benefactor said that when a man embarks on the paths of sorcery he becomes
When someone tells you they've just bought a house, they might as well tell you they no longer have a personality. You can immediately assume so many things: that they're locked into jobs they hate; that they're broke; that they spend every night watching videos; that they're fifteen pounds overweight; that they no longer listen to new ideas. It's profoundly depressing.Douglas Coupland Longer Life Sayings By Douglas Coupland: When someone tells you they've just bought a house, they might as well tell you
No person can escape the germs of their eventual deterioration and destruction. A round-table of physical breakdown and death awaits the rich person and the poor person, as well as the common people and world leaders. The skulls of noble men and savages alike litter the streets of ancient cities. Modern humans live longer than the ancient people did, but eventually we all succumb to the same wretched infirmities.Kilroy J. Oldster Longer Life Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: No person can escape the germs of their eventual deterioration and destruction. A round-table of
He was becoming unstuck, he was sure of that - his bones were no longer wrapped in flesh but in clouds of dust, in hummingbirds, dragonflies, and luminous moths - but so perfect was his equilibrium that he felt no fear. He was vast, he was many, he was dynamic, he was eternal.Tom Robbins Longer Life Sayings By Tom Robbins: He was becoming unstuck, he was sure of that - his bones were no longer
The whole struggle was over, and yet there seemed to have been no moment of victory. You might say, if you liked, that the power of choice had been simply set aside and an inflexible destiny substituted for it. On the other hand, you might say he had delivered from the rhetoric of his passions and had emerged in unassailable freedom. Ransom could not for the life of him, see any difference between these two statements. Predestination and freedom were apparently identical. He could no longer see any meaning in the many arguments he had heart on the subject.C.S. Lewis Longer Life Sayings By C.S. Lewis: The whole struggle was over, and yet there seemed to have been no moment of
This is the first thing the Holy Spirit does in your life. He brings you God's presence, and when He does, you will no longer be in the dark. The Holy Spirit has a beautiful identity. He is called 'The Angel of God's presence.' He is the One Who brings us the presence of God and makes it real to us.Chris Oyakhilome Longer Life Sayings By Chris Oyakhilome: This is the first thing the Holy Spirit does in your life. He brings you
His life was over. The conflicts which tore his mind would no longer trouble him. His fears, his torments, his loves and his hatreds all lay in the past and only oblivion lay before him.
...
Even when blackness overwhelmed him and his lungs filled with water, the words continued to whisper through the corridors of his brain. It was strange that he should be dead and still hear the incantation.
Michael Moorcock Longer Life Sayings By Michael Moorcock: His life was over. The conflicts which tore his mind would no longer trouble him.
We are all born with genius. It's like our fairy godmother. But what happens in life is that we stop listening to our inner voices, and we no longer have access to this extraordinary ability to create poetry.Milton Glaser Longer Life Sayings By Milton Glaser: We are all born with genius. It's like our fairy godmother. But what happens in
I admit,' said Spite, 'to a certain melancholy when visiting vibrant cities, as is this Darujhistan. A long life teaches one just how ephemeral is such thriving glory. Why, I have come again upon cities I knew well in the age of their greatness, only to find crumbled walls, dust and desolation.'
Cutter bared his teeth and said, 'Darujhistan has stood for two thousand years and it will stand for another two thousand-even longer.'
Spite nodded. 'Precisely.
Steven Erikson Longer Life Sayings By Steven Erikson: I admit,' said Spite, 'to a certain melancholy when visiting vibrant cities, as is this
The goal and meaning of individual life (which is the only real life) no longer lie in individual development but in the policy of the State, which is thrust upon the individual from outside and consists in the execution of an abstract idea which ultimately tends to attract all life to itself.C. G. Jung Longer Life Sayings By C. G. Jung: The goal and meaning of individual life (which is the only real life) no longer
But for a man to die of no apparent cause, for a man to die simply because he is a man, brings us so close to the invisible boundary between life and death that we no longer know which side we are on. Life becomes death, and it is as if this death has owned this life all along.Paul Auster Longer Life Sayings By Paul Auster: But for a man to die of no apparent cause, for a man to die
Feels like I've known him since before he got to the world - longer than he knew himself, truthfully. Seems like we'd been friends really ...

A peaceful moment, to imagine being the only human presence among untamed nature, but Katherine's aching absence kept it from being perfect. Every step Layla took toward the west coast felt like a step away from the woman who'd inspired her to make the journey, like she was forsaking her old life for a new one that no longer included Katherine.B.C. Burgess Longer Life Sayings By B.C. Burgess: A peaceful moment, to imagine being the only human presence among untamed nature, but Katherine's
His hands came up to my head, around my cheek and under my hair.
His handsome face was no longer chiseled in stone, but open and naked and raw. "I love you. I'm in love with you and I will be for the rest of my life.

The most precious gift to give to your spouse is not your life because if you die,he/she will no longer have use of you rather the most precious gift is your time, attention, affection, self and love!Jaachynma N.E.

The song is celebrating someone's life. When someone passes, you should focus on all the good that that person has done, and try not to really think about the fact that they're not gonna be on this earth any longer, that they had an effect on you and your lives, and that's what you should take out.Ray Toro Longer Life Sayings By Ray Toro: The song is celebrating someone's life. When someone passes, you should focus on all the
You must carry the cross with Christ in this life. Soon enough there will come a time when you will no longer suffer. You will reign with God and He will wipe away your tears with His own hand. In His presence, pain and sighing will forever flee away.Gene Edwards Longer Life Sayings By Gene Edwards: You must carry the cross with Christ in this life. Soon enough there will come
All my life I have arrived early only to find myself standing self-consciously on a corner, outside a door, in an empty room, but the closer I get to death the earlier I arrive, the longer I am content to wait, perhaps to give myself the false sensation that there is too much time rather than not enough.Nicole Krauss Longer Life Sayings By Nicole Krauss: All my life I have arrived early only to find myself standing self-consciously on a
My life, like most people's, has been negatively affected by cancer, and the thought of my young children living in an age where this is no longer humanity's No. 1 health fear was simply overpowering.Shane Smith Longer Life Sayings By Shane Smith: My life, like most people's, has been negatively affected by cancer, and the thought of
At a certain age, we have already been struck by love; it no longer develops alone, according to its own mysteries and fateful laws while our hearts stand by startled and passive. We come to its assistanceRecognizing one of its symptoms, we recall, we bring back to life the others. Since we possess its song engraved in its totality within us, we do not need for a woman to tell us the beginning

I have no routines or personal history. One day I found out that they were no longer necessary for me and, like drinking, I dropped them. One must have the desire to drop them and then one must proceed harmoniously to chop them off, little by little. If you have no personal history, no explanations are needed; nobody is angry or disillusioned with your acts. And above all no one pins you down with their thoughts. It is best to erase all personal history because that makes us free from the encumbering thoughts of other people. I have, little by little, created a fog around me and my life. And now nobody knows for sure who I am or what I do. Not even I. How can I know who I am, when I am all this?Carlos Castaneda Longer Life Sayings By Carlos Castaneda: I have no routines or personal history. One day I found out that they were
To live in the city of crowds and traffic and constant noise, to be always striving, to be in the ceaseless competition for money and status and power, perhaps distracted the mind until it could no longer see - and forgot - the all that is. Or maybe, because of the pace and pressure of that life, sanity depended on blinding oneself to the manifold miracles, astonishments, wonders, and enigmas that comprised the true world.Dean Koontz Longer Life Sayings By Dean Koontz: To live in the city of crowds and traffic and constant noise, to be always
The moment it was over I knew I shouldn't have done it. It was fucked up on so many levels that it didn't even feel right to hold Dan close to me in what had been our bed less than a month earlier. Dan loved me, I knew he did. It wasn't fair of me to lead him on, even if I had broken up with him just before fucking him. But it wasn't just that, the rest of it wasn't right either. The knowledge of what I no longer was in my family's view but forever, for whoever looked upon me, marked on my body, a lack so fundamental and obvious that some would refuse to call me a man. And what would happen to me because of that, the way my body was even in that moment changing to accommodate someone else's desires, the way I was becoming what Brennan had decided I needed to be. For the first time, it wasn't a mere omission but an outright lie. To be in that bed next to Dan was taking up the space that belonged to someone else, someone we had both loved and who was now gone. That life was over, done.N.J. Lysk Longer Life Sayings By N.J. Lysk: The moment it was over I knew I shouldn't have done it. It was fucked
So I punished myself instead. I gave myself the worst punishment I could think of: I decided to live and I decided to stop drinking." "And afterward?" "I got to my feet again and started working. Worked longer days than all the others. Trained. Went on long walks. Read books. Some on law. Stopped meeting bad friends. Good ones too, by the way. The ones I had left after all the boozing. I don't know why in fact, it was like a big cleanup. Everything in my old life had to go, good as well as bad. One day I sat down and rang round all those I thought I had known in my former life and said: 'Hi, we can't meet anymore. It was nice knowingJo Nesbo Longer Life Sayings By Jo Nesbo: So I punished myself instead. I gave myself the worst punishment I could think of:
You'll be a good parent when you're ready to no longer be selfish. Until I was about 35, it was all about me.

Gregori wanted her. More than that, he needed her. That particular revelation changed everything. It put control back in her hands, gave her back her life. She squared her shoulders. She was no longer a child running from a nameless fear. She was his lifemate, chosen by God to walk with a man of power, of honor. A sensual, strong male who needed her more than anyone else on earth ever could.Christine Feehan Longer Life Sayings By Christine Feehan: Gregori wanted her. More than that, he needed her. That particular revelation changed everything. It
He now looked death in the face and no longer beheld the scenes that would surround his death. He wanted to remain like that until the end, no longer prey to his lies, which, by trying to bring him a beautiful and wonderful agony, would have added the last straw to his profanations by soiling the mysteries of his death just as it had concealed from him the mysteries of his life.Marcel Proust Longer Life Sayings By Marcel Proust: He now looked death in the face and no longer beheld the scenes that would
The longer i live, the more urgent it seems to me to endure and transcribe the whole dictation of existence up to its end, for it might just be the case that only the very last sentence contains that small and possibly inconspicuous word through which everything we had struggled to learn and everything we had failed to understand will be transformed into magnificent sense.Rainer Maria Rilke Longer Life Sayings By Rainer Maria Rilke: The longer i live, the more urgent it seems to me to endure and transcribe
A few miles away across the East River was the apartment he could never get used to, the job where he had nothing to do, the dozen or so people he knew slightly and cared about not at all: a fabric of existence as blank and seamless as the freshly plaster wall he passed. Soon his wife would return from New Jersey. Soon everyone would be back, and things would go on much as they had before. From the street outside came the sound of laughter and shouting, bottles breaking, voices droning in the warm air, and children playing far past their bedtime. It all meant nothing whatever to Lowell. Standing in the parlor of a house no longer his, listening to the voices of people whose lives were closed to him forever, contemplating a future much like his past, he realized that it was finally too late for him. Everything had gone wrong, and he had succeeded at nothing, and he was never going to have any kind of life at all.L.J. Davis Longer Life Sayings By L.J. Davis: A few miles away across the East River was the apartment he could never get
Tell a wise person, or else keep silent,
because the mass man will mock it right away.
I praise what is truly alive,
what longs to be burned to death.
In the calm water of the love-nights,
where you were begotten, where you have begotten,
a strange feeling comes over you,
when you see the silent candle burning.
Now you are no longer caught
in the obsession with darkness,
and a desire for higher love-making
sweeps you upward.
Distance does not make you falter.
Now, arriving in magic, flying,
and finally, insane for the light,
you are the butterfly and you are gone.
And so long as you haven't experienced
this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest
on the dark earth.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Longer Life Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: Tell a wise person, or else keep silent,because the mass man will mock it right
Her life with others no longer interests him. He wants only her stalking beauty, her theatre of expressions. He wants the minute secret reflection between them, the depth of field minimal, their foreignness intimate like two pages of a closed book.Michael Ondaatje Longer Life Sayings By Michael Ondaatje: Her life with others no longer interests him.

Those who turn the day into night, the young, the drug addict, the profligate, the drunken and that most miserable, the lover who watches all night long in fear and anguish. These can never again live the life of the day. When one meets them at high noon they give off, as if it were a protective emanation, something dark and muted. The light does not become them any longer. They begin to have an unrecorded look. It is as if they were being tried by the continual blows of an unseen adversary.Djuna Barnes Longer Life Sayings By Djuna Barnes: Those who turn the day into night, the young, the drug addict, the profligate, the

You are not singular in your suspicions that you know but little," he had told Caroline, in response to her quandary over the riddles of life. "The longer I live, the more I read, the more patiently I think, and the more anxiously I inquire, the less I seem to know. . . . Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly. This is enough. . . . So questions and so answers your affectionate grandfather."

It was not a choice of writing or not writing. It was a choice of loving my life or not loving my life. To keep writing was always a first priority ... I worked probably 25 years by myself ...

What we want to do in this moment is rarely what's best for us. We need to take a longer view of life and to realize that to become someone worth becoming, I probably need to be doing things I don't want to be doing.Vince Antonucci Longer Life Sayings By Vince Antonucci: What we want to do in this moment is rarely what's best for us.

From the instant that we passed the rise, we could no longer see the vehicle, but we hastened onward at such a pace that my sedentary life began to tell upon me, and I was compelled to fall behind. Holmes, however, was always in training, for he had inexhaustible stores of nervous energy upon which to draw.Arthur Conan Doyle Longer Life Sayings By Arthur Conan Doyle: From the instant that we passed the rise, we could no longer see the vehicle,
I begin to realize that my memory is a great catacomb, and that below my actual standing-ground there is layer after layer of historical ashes.
Is the life of mind something like that of great trees of immemorial growth? Is the living layer of consciousness super-imposed upon hundreds of dead layers? Dead? No doubt this is too much to say, but still, when memory is slack the past becomes almost as though it had never been. To remember that we did know once is not a sign of possession but a sign of loss; it is like the number of an engraving which is no longer on its nail, the title of a volume no longer to be found on its shelf. My mind is the empty frame of a thousand vanished images.
Henri Frederic Amiel Longer Life Sayings By Henri Frederic Amiel: I begin to realize that my memory is a great catacomb, and that below my
We were not born whole; we were born new, and each life experience coated us with another layer. These layers protected us like armor, but they also covered us to the point where we no longer could feel. That was the balance: to open up to the experiences, to strategically place the layers, but to leave the heart open. The heart had to be sent into the front lines every day, naked, unarmed, willing to take fire. That was the only way to live. With risk. On the cusp of dying.Jennifer Handford Longer Life Sayings By Jennifer Handford: We were not born whole; we were born new, and each life experience coated us
I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity ... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not -more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.Beverly Sills Longer Life Sayings By Beverly Sills: I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity ... I didn't feel better
No, it was simply that I was uninterested in making, as I saw it, a Xerox of some old emotional state. I was in my mid-thirties, with a marriage more or less behind me. I was no longer vulnerable to curiosity's enormous momentum. I had nothing new to murmur to another on the subject of myself and not the smallest eagerness about being briefed on Danielle's supposedly unique trajectory - a curve described under the action, one could safely guess, of the usual material and maternal and soulful longings, a few thwarting tics of character, and luck good and bad. A life seemed like an old story.Joseph O'Neill Longer Life Sayings By Joseph O'Neill: No, it was simply that I was uninterested in making, as I saw it, a
Anarchism is a definite intellectual current in the life of our times, whose adherents advocate the abolition of economic monopolies and of all political and social coercive institutions within society. In place of the present capitalistic economic order Anarchists would have a free association of all productive forces based upon co-operative labour, which would have as its sole purpose the satisfying of the necessary requirements of every member of society, and would no longer have in view the special interest of privileged minorities within the social union.Rudolf Rocker Longer Life Sayings By Rudolf Rocker: Anarchism is a definite intellectual current in the life of our times, whose adherents advocate
