Eddie Vedder
During most of my life, my contact with Jews and Judaism was slight. I gave little thought to their problems, save in asking myself, from time to time, whether we were showing by our lives due appreciation of the opportunities which this hospitable country affords. My approach to Zionism was through Americanism.
Louis D. Brandeis

Sarah Michelle Gellar
Every time a meteor comes close to the earth, we all think about the end of the world – but our internal soundtrack doesn’t turn off. We’re also thinking about pizza or passing a slow tractor or making a turn, and for a magical instant, our lives seem to be in conversation with the stars.
Elif Batuman
It’s always the big question in our lives if you have a lot of success. What do you do with it? Buy more houses, buy more cars, buy more stuff, be wealthy and distant and unengaged? Or do you take all that good fortune that has come towards you and spread the love, do something with it?
Kevin Spacey
If I was madly in love with someone who offered the opportunity to spend our lives together, I would love to have a child or adopt a child.
Charlie Rose

Huston Smith
I think the ordinary is a very under-exploited aspect of our lives because it is so familiar.

William Throsby Bridges
The religious imagery and fairytales that formed our shared cultural references have been replaced by the cult of celebrity. Marilyn is the sex goddess, Camilla Parker Bowles is cast as the wicked witch, Che Guevara is the revolutionary. Celebrities have become visual shorthand for narratives that shape our lives.
Alison Jackson
A woman has many faces as she goes through her life. It’s like we need more than one hair-do. We have many, many changes in the evolution of our lives. We have, we learn, and we grow; we view life differently, and life views us differently.
Sharon Stone
I don’t see how anybody cannot be political in this day and age. There’s so much going on and you have to be aware and you have to vote. Our lives are political.
Robert Cray

Carrie Brownstein
Naturalism says that we were not put here for any purpose. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t such thing as purpose. It just means that purpose isn’t imposed from outside. We human beings have the creative ability to give our lives purposes and meanings.
Sean M. Carroll
For most of us, the great danger is not that we will renounce our faith. It is that we will become so distracted and rushed and preoccupied that we will settle for a mediocre version of it. We will just skim our lives instead of actually living them.
John Ortberg

I think it is important that we rebuild an atmosphere of forgiveness and civility in every aspect of our lives.

Lisa See
Writers want to summarize: What does this mean? What di

Writers want to summarize: What does this mean? What did we learn from this? That’s a very 19th-century way of thinking about art, because it assumes that it should make our lives better or teach us something.
Laurie Anderson
Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance. This second, we can sit down and do our work.
Steven Pressfield
History does influence our lives – every moment. We never sort of live our lives in a linear fashion. We always have these memories and these images from our past that sometimes we’re not even aware of, and they sort of shape who we are.
Dinaw Mengestu
You know, women have a history of just being – we’ve been told all our lives not to say – in the fifties you couldn’t say birth or even be pregnant hardly on television – and then gradually things have changed.
Cybill Shepherd
Young adults in their late 20s are confronted by so many choices – there are so many different paths to choose. Sometimes I think we just fill our lives with stuff so we don’t really make any choice at all, which is certainly incredibly luxurious.
Rachael Taylor
I think the point about ActionAid is what it’s asking people to do is engage with poor people in developing countries and understand what their lives are like and understand how the way we live our lives impacts on theirs.
Emma Thompson
Democracy is not something that happens, you know, just at election time, and it’s not something that happens just with one event. It’s an ongoing building process. But it also ought to be a part of our culture, a part of our lives.
Jim Hightower

Albert Finney
I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.
Sarah Jessica Parker
We live in a world where, for whatever reason, the conversations that tend to stick are the ones where ‘if it bleeds, it leads.’ But we’ve always been afraid of new technologies in spite of the fact that they’ve helped improve our lives in countless ways.
Jason Silva
I am devoted to my husband and son. I am devoted to the practices and rituals that imbue our lives with a sense of meaning and purpose, that help me to live my days in the most emotionally and intellectually productive manner. I am devoted to the idea of devotion itself.
Dani Shapiro
I think we all wish we could erase some dark times in our lives. But all of life’s experiences, bad and good make you who you are. Erasing any of life’s experiences would be a great mistake.
Luis Miguel

Tullian Tchividjian
Every situation has qualities. Essentially, we quantify them and that’s the practical side of our lives, so the involvement with perception and in acquiring the perception is our ability to understand qualities. They exist only as long as a human being keeps them in play. They’re – Therefore they are akin to energy.
Robert Irwin
We need to be more conversant with it because science is in our lives. It’s in everything. It’s in the food we eat. It’s in the air we breathe. It’s everywhere.
Alan Alda
I’ve never really found inspiration for story ideas in the news, but I’d say it certainly affects our lives in so many ways. I would say that certainly the stories of the day appear in the work – I just have never gone so far as to say, well, this particular event could influence a plot of an entire book.
Michael Koryta
I’ve always been obsessed with style and glamor and if I want anyone to get anything out of my book, it’s how we can all have them in our lives.

Charles R. Swindoll
The quality of our lives is diminished every time we lose a great artist. It’s a different world without Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Curtis Mayfield, Brian Jones and the rest.

If we have faith in Jesus Christ, the hardest as well as the easiest times in life can be a blessing. In all conditions, we can choose the right with the guidance of the Spirit. We have the gospel of Jesus Christ to shape and guide our lives if we choose it.
Henry B. Eyring
I think that everyone at any age should ask themselves, ‘where do I want to be today, where do I want to be tomorrow, and where do I want to be in a hundred years?’ We all have clear answers to those questions. We only have so much time. It’s a real shame if we don’t spend our lives trying to do that.
Jack Antonoff
I think we need to take time out in our lives to realign ourselves with country, to realign ourselves with what we have and the beauty of what we have. I think we’ve all just got caught up in this way of life that doesn’t allow us to be intimate with it any more.
Aaron Pedersen
My father, a mining engineer and colliery manager, gave his brood many advantages not least of which, for me, was his love of singing which gave music a central place in our lives.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Breathing air is a liberating experience. It freed our

Lyall Watson

We are the shadow of Sirius. There is the other side of – as we talk to each other, we see the light, and we see these faces, but we know that behind that, there’s the other side, which we never know. And that – it’s the dark, the unknown side that guides us, and that is part of our lives all the time. It’s the mystery.
W. S. Merwin
We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem – even to you – I don’t care: You have to let that out.
Eleni Zaude Gabre-Madhin
All white-collar work is project work. The single salient fact that touches all of our lives is that work is being reinvented.

Joseph Prince
I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on.
Rita Dove
God’s grace is amazing! We’re saved by grace – God’s undeserved favor – and we live by grace, which is also God’s power in our lives to do what we could never do in our own strength. And it’s all because God is love, and He loves us unconditionally, constantly and completely.
Joyce Meyer
Could it be, I wonder, that there is such a thing as a wantologist, someone we can hire to figure out what we want? Have I arrived at some final telling moment in my research on outsourcing intimate parts of our lives, or at the absurdist edge of the market frontier?
Arlie Russell Hochschild
Our house is made of glass… and our lives are made of glass; and there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves.
Joyce Carol Oates
‘Cars 2’ is about a character learning to be himself. There’s times in our lives where people always say, ‘Well, you’ve gotta act differently. You should always be yourself.’ That’s the emotional core of the story.
John Lasseter
I think I’m much less self confident today. I actually went through a quite painful period because of that thinking that I was completely hopeless. But I think that’s something that we all go through at various times of our lives and it was quite a sustained thing with me.
Hugo Weaving
Balance is so important in our lives. In our busy world, we can give ourselves balance between thinking and feeling.
Yakov Smirnoff
Worshipping is stripping ourselves of our idols, even the most hidden ones, and choosing the Lord as the centre, as the highway of our lives.

Robert Kennedy
We all are different. Our lives are different.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk
In communism, we never had any freedom – of movement, of speech, of press. We didn’t even make own decisions for our lives, our future. We were human robots.

Debbie Harry
The central paradox of the machines that have made our lives so much brighter, quicker, longer and healthier is that they cannot teach us how to make the best use of them; the information revolution came without an instruction manual.
Pico Iyer
Working long hours being single helps because your time is yours. Once you have a family your time isn’t all yours anymore. Most of the Mac team, we were in our mid-20’s, most of us were single, and we were able to essentially devote our lives to it.
Andy Hertzfeld
When we were children, we were told that we have a motherland, and that motherland was Spain. However, we have discovered later, in our lives, that as a matter of fact, we have several motherlands. And one of the greatest motherlands of all is, no doubt, Africa.
Hugo Chavez
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but how we react to what happens, not by what life brings us but the attitude we bring to life.

Mike Birbiglia
Be very disciplined about dedicating some time – even if it is five minutes a day – to calling or talking to someone you love. That kind of consistency, even if it is just five minutes a day, helps to remind us that we have a well of connection in our lives.
Vivek Murthy
We must improve our lives and we will do it together – all of our citizens and myself as president of Ukraine.
Viktor Yanukovych
I guess none of us like to look back in our lives to a time when we made poor judgments and foolish mistakes.

Bruce Feiler
Our lives are universally shortened by our ignorance.
Herbert Spencer
Museums are interesting. This place where we’re almost buying admission to take a break from our lives.
Abbi Jacobson
Let me tell you something. I’m a funny girl, and I gave birth to what? Funny. I can’t help it. It just is what it is, and my kids have been around my antics so long, it kind of rubs off a little bit. So when it comes to what you see, you only see what is really manifesting in our lives at the time.
Niecy Nash
Sureness is something like a neck brace, which we clamp

Sureness is something like a neck brace, which we clamp around our lives, hoping to somehow protect ourselves from the frightening, constant whiplash of change. Sadly, the brace doesn’t always hold.
Elizabeth Gilbert
We have more media than ever and more technology in our lives. It’s supposed to help us communicate, but it has the opposite effect of isolating us.

The control and understanding of our personal fears is one of the most important undertakings of our lives.
Helen Mirren
Our lives improve only when we take chances – and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
Walter Anderson
We may not imagine how our lives could be more frustrating and complex – but Congress can.
Cullen Hightower
Technology does more than delight, entertain and make our lives more convenient, it’s also an agent for social good. That is why it’s important for tech startups to stay informed about, and make a mark on, policies that impact them.
Ron Conway
Who knows for what we live, and struggle, and die? Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom.
Alan Paton
Libraries are where we learn that we can live our lives through books.
Kevin Barry
None of us really understood exactly how much Star Wars would affect us for the rest of our lives.
Jake Lloyd
Instead of this fruitless debate about having it all, men and women should focus on what make us happy. Instead of comparing our lives with people we don’t know who are making sacrifices we don’t see, we should try to find the right balance between home and work life.
LZ Granderson
Our ability to participate in government, to elect our leaders and to improve our lives is contingent upon our ability to access the ballot. We know in our heart of hearts that voting is a sacred right – the fount from which all other rights flow.
Stacey Abrams
We’re all going to be victims of temptation at several points in our lives.
Smokey Robinson
Music is critical in our lives and culture. It’s the inspiration that drives us. It’s also the window to our souls. It’s a reflection as to who we are, what we stand for and where we’re going.
Bill Walton
Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.
Irving Berlin
We all have experiences in our lives that change us, and we all learn from people, like my dad, but at the end of the day, it’s only us. And we’re only responsible to make ourselves happy.
Tom Brady
The impact of T.V. on our lives in general gets most things out of proportion.
Jasper Carrott
Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.
Rainer Maria Rilke
I’m interested in the dream and subconscious mind, the peculiar dream-like quality of our lives, sometime nightmare quality of our lives.
Anthony Hopkins
The lovely thing about writing is, well, two things. One, writing fiction allows us to bring an order to our lives that doesn’t exist in real life. And two, it allows us to create human characters that we know better than we will ever know anyone in real life.
Octavia E. Butler
Parenthood always comes as a shock. Postpartum blues? Postpartum panic is more like it. We set out to have a baby; what we get is a total take-over of our lives.
Polly Berrien Berends
But our society does not grant nontraditional forms of intelligence equal recognition, no matter how much it would help us get along or truly enrich our lives.
Joan D. Vinge
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
Henri Nouwen
Our learning ought to be our lives’ amendment, and the fruits of our private study ought to appear in our public behavior.
Thomas Nashe
The question we all face is what sort of culture we will live in for the rest of our lives and then hand on to the next generation – one that embraces these most basic of values, or one that collapses because of their absence.
Tammy Bruce
It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.
Tony Robbins
On the subject of religious belief, we relax standards of reasonableness and evidence that we rely on in every other area of our lives. We relax so totally that people believe the most ludicrous propositions, and are willing to organize their lives around them.
Sam Harris
We were promised a simpler life, and technology has only complicated our lives.
Freeman Thomas
I can’t write my life story without Emmitt and Troy. They can’t write their life stories without me. We’re tied together forever. This is a day to remember for the rest of our lives.
Michael Irvin
No phenomenon can be isolated, but has repercussions through every aspect of our lives. We are learning that we are a fundamental part of nature’s ecosystems.
Arthur Erickson
I still paint. I love the joy that color can give to ou

I still paint. I love the joy that color can give to our lives and to our communities. I try to bring something of the artist in me to my politics.
Edi Rama
Passion is what gives meaning to our lives. It’s what allows us to achieve success beyond our wildest imagination. Try to find a career path that you have a passion for.

The dignity we seek in dying must be found in the dignity with which we have lived our lives.
Sherwin B. Nuland
The real meditation practice is how we live our lives from moment to moment to moment.

Jose Andres
We should live our lives as though Christ were coming this afternoon.

Those of us who are today prepared to hazard our lives for the cause would regret having raised a finger, if we were able to organize only a new social system and not a more righteous one.
Theodor Herzl
Christians who have had so much to say with our mouths and so little to show with our lives. I am sorry that so often we have forgotten the Christ of our Christianity.
Shane Claiborne
It is our less conscious thoughts and our less conscious actions which mainly mould our lives and the lives of those who spring from us.
Samuel Butler
I’ve worked with a lot of gay and lesbian organizations. I sit on the board of the Empire State Pride Agenda. I’ve also done a lot of work for Broadway Care/Equity Fights AIDS. I think it’s important because, when we can be of service to others, it only enhances our lives. I’ve been helped a lot in my life.
Billy Porter
Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.
Paul Millsap
If our lives are made up of a string of a thousand moments, at some of those moments we look a lot more spiritually evolved than at others.
Anne Lamott
Our brains have the ability to reorganize themselves by forming new neural connections throughout our lives. This ability is called neuroplasticity.
Elizabeth Thornton
Human beings, we have dark sides; we have dark issues in our lives. To progress anywhere in life, you have to face your demons.
John Noble
Our ideas are for the most part like bad sixpences, and we spend our lives trying to pass them on one another.
Samuel Butler
Just knowing that there’s somebody else out there – that what’s happened on this planet has also happened in many other places – that might change our lives in a very subtle way, but it’s interesting to know and worth looking for.
Seth Shostak
I cannot imagine a more realistic faith than the Christian faith. At every turn, we are told we are death-determined creatures and that our lives, our all too brief lives, at the very least will be complex if not difficult.
Stanley Hauerwas
To live forever should not be an obligation. In fact, eternal life should only be for those who wish for it, because if we are depressed and unhappy with our lives, just the idea of living forever is an unbearable source of suffering.
Claude Vorilhon
I’m interested in memory because it’s a filter through which we see our lives, and because it’s foggy and obscure, the opportunities for self-deception are there. In the end, as a writer, I’m more interested in what people tell themselves happened rather than what actually happened.
Kazuo Ishiguro
I was brought up a strict Christian. My father was a lay preacher, my mother a church warden. The rhythm and ritual of the Anglican Church was part of our lives.
Monty Don
All of us create our own versions of an event, of our lives, even, not because we’re liars, necessarily, but because we can only see and understand the truth from our own viewpoint, and a shifting viewpoint at that.
Deb Caletti
I believe that stories are incredibly important, possibly in ways we don’t understand, in allowing us to make sense of our lives, in allowing us to escape our lives, in giving us empathy and in creating the world that we live in.
Neil Gaiman
We’re proud to be lifetime musicians and a band that lives like a band and loves the music and gives our lives to it.
Zac Brown
When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are.
Cesar Chavez
It may seem like we have the ultimate plan for our lives, but it’s not in the same galaxy of what God’s plans are for His people.
Monica Johnson
Paternalism is everywhere in our lives. We have to immunise our children unless we are upset about it. In India, it is the opposite. It is possible to get your kids immunised, but you really have to want to.
Esther Duflo
In documentary filmmaking, there’s a tradition of telling stories about victims. We often do that from a very patronizing place, but mostly we do it from a very selfish place, to reassure ourselves that our lives are in sympathy and solidarity with the victims.
Joshua Oppenheimer
I think sometimes what people miss about black people i

I think sometimes what people miss about black people is that we’re complicated, that we are indeed messy, that we do our best with what we’ve been given. We come into the world exactly like you. It’s just that there are circumstances in the culture that are dictated and put on our lives that we have to fight against.
Viola Davis
The way we behave, our views and outlooks really have their sources some place. They come from somewhere. Sometimes we don’t even know what they are, and yet they’re very powerful in our lives.
Kim Edwards
Until I began to build and launch rockets, I didn’t know my hometown was at war with itself over its children and that my parents were locked in a kind of bloodless combat over how my brother and I would live our lives.
Homer Hickam
Obsessed by a fairy tale, we spend our lives searching for a magic door and a lost kingdom of peace.
Eugene O’Neill
I have one really nice watch. It’s a white-face, stainless-steel Rolex Daytona. I wear it a lot. I got that in the middle of ‘The Office.’ All the guys in the writers’ room were like, ‘Let’s all get a nice watch.’ We were too busy to upgrade our lives in a big way, but we thought this was a nice symbolic gesture.
B. J. Novak
Even during the worst hardships, when the other things in our lives seem to fall apart, we can still find peace in the eternal love of God.
Armstrong Williams
Our lives are structured by our memories of events. Event X happened just before the big Paris vacation. I was doing Y in the first summer after I learned to drive. Z happened the weekend after I landed my first job. We remember events by positioning them in time relative to other events.
Joshua Foer
I think we go through our lives limiting our potential, and when times are tough, it’s easy to convince ourselves that something isn’t possible, but if you start there, then you limit yourself and the possibilities of what you can create.
Brian Chesky
What’s really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that we’re alive for only a limited period of time, and we’ll spend most of our lives working.
Victor Kiam
We Negro writers, just by being black, have been on the blacklist all our lives. Censorship for us begins at the color line.
Langston Hughes
God has put within our lives meanings and possibilities that quite outrun the limits of mortality.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
It was there I met my future wife, Celeste Landry, although our lives took us separate ways for many years and we were not to marry until more than ten years later.
Eric Allin Cornell
Every night of our lives, we dream, and our brain concocts visions which are, at least until we wake up, highly convincing. Most of us have had experiences which are verging on hallucination. It shows the power of the brain to knock up illusions.
Richard Dawkins
With every little bit of change we make in our lives, we can maximize that small change simply by asking ourselves: ‘What’s next? What can I do now? What additional responsibility can I take on?’
Yehuda Berg
I think we’ve all been misled, at moments in our lives, certainly in school situations, and things like that, with getting with the wrong group briefly, or falling in with someone who we learn the truth about and no longer want to really be with.
John Hawkes
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order the continuous thread of revelation.
Eudora Welty
It’s an old principle, as old as the Buddha or Marcus Aurelius: We need at times to step away from our lives in order to put them in perspective. Especially if we wish to be productive.
Pico Iyer
Let’s choose today to quench our thirst for the ‘good life’ we thinks others lead by acknowledging the good that already exists in our lives. We can then offer the universe the gift of our grateful hearts.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
A little prosperity and peace, or even a turn slightly for the better, can bring us feelings of self-sufficiency. We can feel quickly that we are in control of our lives, that the change for the better is our own doing, not that of a God who communicates to us through the still, small voice of the Spirit.
Henry B. Eyring
Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.
Rosa Parks
At the end of our lives we all ask, ‘Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?’
Brendon Burchard
We have so much room for improvement. Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory… of how we are taking responsibility.
Nancy Pelosi
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Harrison Ford
Like Jermaine was saying, it’s a beautiful day, and we’re just glad all of this is behind us. We can go on with our lives. And Michael can go on with his life and do what he does best, and that’s making good music, making his fans happy, people happy all over the world.
Tito Jackson
We all perform our lives in a way. And the actor is a perfect metaphor to get at that theme of ‘how do we find our authentic selves?’ And that we all – whether we’re actors or not – perform ourselves. As a way of searching. As a way of fumbling around and trying to say, is this my voice? Is this who I am?
Annette Bening
I think it’s crucial that we remember the lives of people, not their deaths. Our deaths are not our lives.
Ross Gay
Most of us don’t live lives that lend themselves to novelistic expression, because our lives are so fragmented.
Tobias Wolff
You know, I’m a Christian and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.
Sharron Angle
We don’t naturally want to take responsibility for our lives. We want to give the responsibility to someone else. We blame them when our lives aren’t good.
Donald Miller
Everybody has heard that family dinner is great for kids. But unfortunately, it doesn’t work in many of our lives.
Bruce Feiler
When we are at the worst times of our lives, when we are battling with something, or struggles, whatever it may be, when we are at our highest point as well, when things are going really well, we want somebody to comfort us and be there for us and to say, ‘Well done.’ That’s Jesus!
Russell Wilson
Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives under

Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives under the shadow of an event that has not yet come to pass?
Maurice Maeterlinck
When I was a child, life felt so slow because all I wanted to do was get into show business. Each day seemed like a year, but when you get older, years pass like minutes. I wish there was a tape recorder where we could just slow our lives down.
Bruce Forsyth
Christian teaching about sex is not a set of isolated prohibitions; it is an integral part of what the Bible has to say about living in such a way that our lives communicate the character of God.
Rowan Williams
When your life is as precious as all our lives are, then it needs to be kept precious and looked after and treated well. And that is not something we should be sharing with a wider audience.
Saffron Burrows
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
Denis Waitley
We just simply want to get back to basics, get – restore essentially the constitutional foundation of the country, and that means the federal government becoming less onerous, less involved in every – basically every item of our lives. And what that means is there does have to be some transition.
Joe Miller
The Millennials, a generation born digital, will have a much stronger impact on social behaviour than we currently assume. Global climate change and resource security will influence our lives in substantial ways.
Klaus Schwab
Let’s be cautious about relying so much on material things that we have no energy left for the spiritual aspects of our lives.
James A. Forbes
We are accountable for our actions as we exercise our moral agency. If we understand this principle and make righteous choices, our lives will be blessed.
L. Lionel Kendrick
We all must live our lives always feeling, always thinking the moment has arrived.
Tracy Chapman
I believe that we have the ability to change our lives using our imaginations. Imagination is a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets.
Rodman Philbrick
I didn’t want to be trapped in an idea of replicating other ‘Star Trek’ characters; especially Vulcans. But my love and I have Spock paraphernalia all over our house. He’s an omnipresence in our lives, we adore him.
Tamlyn Tomita
There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery. It has to do with limiting the role of our government in our lives. It has to do with free markets.
Tim Scott
Writing is a way of processing our lives. And it can be a way of healing.
Jan Karon
When I first ran for public office, it was with the passion and idealism of a young man who believed that government could help make our lives better, that public service was a calling and that citizenship demanded responsibilities. There was a greater good.
James McGreevey
When we clear the physical clutter from our lives, we literally make way for inspiration and ‘good, orderly direction’ to enter.
Julia Cameron
Art is a mind-game that we do to make our lives easier. If it isn’t for that, it becomes superfluous.
Yoko Ono
I have come a long way and learnt a lot. I read this quote about a year ago: ‘Happiness must not be pursued; it must ensue.’ It’s made me realise that just being married again or something like that won’t make me happy; the happiness ensues from how we live our lives.
Lucy Davis
We are, perhaps, uniquely among the earth’s creatures, the worrying animal. We worry away our lives, fearing the future, discontent with the present, unable to take in the idea of dying, unable to sit still.
Lewis Thomas
We believe in personal choice, rather than society dictating how we must live our lives.
Mike Peters
The way I look at it is this, as Republicans, we look for less government interference in our lives.
Craig Benson
Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers – organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative – if we don’t solve these security problems, then people will hold back.
Bill Gates
The Bill of Rights isn’t some legalistic fine print. It was written to make our lives freer, more prosperous, and happier. By forsaking it, America has become no better than any other country in the world.
Harry Browne
Buying found objects means repurposing something that was already made years before, sometimes decades before. It strikes a nice balance between the new and used equation we should strive for in our lives.
Nate Berkus
The Cold War was a boring thing. Nobody gets better for it. Tremendous money is wasted. Our lives get more difficult. We look at each other as enemies. What’s good in that? In any case, I will do anything in my power in order to stop another Cold War, with the U.S. or any other country in the world.
Dmitry Medvedev
It’s an important point to realize that the genetic programming of our lives is not fully deterministic. It is statistical – it is in any animal merely statistical – not deterministic.
Richard Dawkins
I have long argued for the arts to have the recognition and funding they need, not only because they brighten our lives, but also because they make a tangible contribution to our national economy.
Luciana Berger
The key to creating the mental space before responding is mindfulness. Mindfulness is a way of being present: paying attention to and accepting what is happening in our lives. It helps us to be aware of and step away from our automatic and habitual reactions to our everyday experiences.
Elizabeth Thornton
We are made of the stories we have heard and read all through our lives.
Diane Setterfield
We must agree to live in this world, with all that is unfair about it, without knowing why, if we wish to have a God in our lives.
Fred Melamed
Humility is a super-important factor in all of our lives, and I try to remind myself every evening in front of the mirror, ‘Just calm down.’
Toto Wolff
You could go crazy thinking of how unprivate our lives

You could go crazy thinking of how unprivate our lives really are – the omnipresent security cameras, the tracking data on our very smart phones, the porous state of our Internet selves, the trail of electronic crumbs we leave every day.
Susan Orlean
We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Barbara De Angelis
As individuals, we will be judged in our lives by the totality of our actions. Not one thing will stand out. And I think that’s how we get judged by our colleagues and that’s how we get judged by the good lord.
Rahm Emanuel
One of the saddest realities is that we never know when our lives are at their peak. Only after it is over and we have some kind of perspective do we realize how good we had it a day, a month, five years ago.
Jonathan Carroll
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Dalai Lama
Most of us actually stifle enough good impulses during the course of a day to change the current of our lives.
William Moulton Marston
I was in a Bible study, Henry Blackaby’s ‘Experiencing God,’ and I started to experience God as I was reading the pages of this workbook and studying scripture with some friends, and we all just searching to fill that void in our lives.
Ainsley Earhardt
Stories about the ongoing dramas in our lives as we age are not being told because women find it difficult to be honest about what’s going on – about, for example, our heightened sexuality as we age or about living in a society that only values youth.
Olympia Dukakis
Some choices we live not only once but a thousand times over, remembering them for the rest of our lives.
Richard Bach
If you want to be a modern citizen of the world, you have to be minimally capable in technology. It’s a new literacy test. Technology rules your outcome in life. And software is making a lot of decisions in our lives.
Daniel Suarez
Well, I think it’s real important that people understand, first and foremost, those of us that have lived in Arizona or in southern California, we have a very diverse population. The Hispanic population has been part of all of our lives since we’ve been born here or since we’ve grown up here.
Jan Brewer
I think women are taught to ask permission about everything. We don’t realize that we are entitled and we do have a say in our lives.
Doris Roberts
People relate to things that feel real to them. All the good, happy, over-sexed and moneyed endings on TV are not the way most of us feel in our lives. The success of ‘E.R.,’ I think, is not relying on overly sentimental stories that are solved where people’s lives wrap up nicely with happy endings.
Anthony Edwards
Adolescence is the most Technicolor time in our lives. It’s the time when adulthood is new and we care most about it. It contains the highs and lows that excite me as a writer.
Ned Vizzini
The first half of our lives are ruined by our parents and the second half by our children.
Clarence Darrow
The moment of drifting into thought has been so clipped by modern technology. Our lives are filled with distraction with smartphones and all the rest. People are so locked into not being present.
Glen Hansard
There are very fundamental reasons we live our lives in social networks, and if we really understood the role they’re playing in our society, we would take better care of social networks and find ways to take advantage of their power to improve our society.
Nicholas A. Christakis
The night that George Zimmerman was acquitted, I think, for black people all over the world, there was a collective feeling of incredible grief and incredible rage. And that verdict not only let George Zimmerman go home to his family, but it sent a message to black people everywhere that our lives did not matter.
Alicia Garza
Kafka truly illustrates the way the environment oppresses the individual. He shows how the unconscious controls our lives.
Manuel Puig
I love the role that men play in our lives.
Shania Twain
We kinda look at this as the second or third chapter of our lives. After college, most people figure out what they want to do with their lives. But we already know what we want to do in the future and that is to continue to further our business goals.
Mary-Kate Olsen
The goal of any true resistance is to affect outcomes, not just to vent. And the only way to affect outcomes and thrive in our lives is to find the eye in the hurricane and act from that place of inner strength.
Arianna Huffington
We should definitely be more careful about the things that we chose to do with our lives.
Gladys Knight
What happened on September 11 compels us to focus on who we are as Americans, what we stand for, what really matters in our lives – family, friends, faith and freedom.
Bob Taft
College graduates work in every sector of the American economy, and the research engines incubated within our universities generate a wealth of ideas and innovations that have an enormous impact on our lives.
Gordon Gee
In our lives, we have good things and bad things, happiness and pain.
Park Chan-wook
But it was hard to leave because the show’s been so important in our lives.
Candice Bergen
That’s the thing with all of us music geeks – music is the soundtrack to the things that happen in our lives, and there’s music that’s unique to that movie.
Mike D
We’re all moving at such a high rate that we have to grab the frozen dinners and the McDonald’s. We can’t make it a way of life – we have to get back to real, simple, clean good foods. It will save our lives on so many levels; not just spina bifida, but obesity, diabetes, everything. Food is our medicine.
Nicole Ari Parker
We were never thrown into the situation in the middle of our lives, but grew up doing it. This is all we know, and some people who were thrown into it don’t really know what to do or how to react and this is just kind of natural for us.
Mary-Kate Olsen
Optimistic people play a disproportionate role in shaping our lives. Their decisions make a difference; they are inventors, entrepreneurs, political and military leaders – not average people. They got to where they are by seeking challenges and taking risks.
Daniel Kahneman
We were married in Capri almost two years ago and we ha

We were married in Capri almost two years ago and we have made a pact with each other to visit the beautiful island and the church where we were married every year for the rest of our lives.
Giuliana Rancic
It is my deepest belief that only by giving our lives do we find life. I am convinced that the truest act of courage, the strongest act of manliness is to sacrifice ourselves for others in a totally non-violent struggle for justice.
Cesar Chavez
It’s fascinating for us women to begin looking at our lives in five-year plans. It really does help you keep on track. If that’s too hard, start with a two-year plan.
Marlo Thomas
There is a divine moment in our lives when we all become one. It’s called procreation, and it is reborn, continually and forever.
Dirk Benedict
The most cherished and sacred moments of our lives are those filled with the spirit of love.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I think we all have those moments at one point or other in our lives… when we see someone and immediately imagine a whole universe around them. A relationship, a future, and all based on just a second which might not even have been in their company. It’s amazing how quickly the human mind can come up with this stuff.
Danny Wallace
Pop music provides not just the soundtrack to our lives, as the cliche goes; it releases our emotions and helps us to articulate them. This is why music is so important to adolescents, who are struggling with questions of identity and self-expression.
Sarah Churchwell
I can’t seem to help writing love stories. I definitely crave romance. When I was young, I craved romance in books, but I didn’t want to read just romance – love plays such a big part in our lives, it shouldn’t be cut out and restricted to its own fiction.
Rainbow Rowell
Sadness is a super important thing not to be ashamed about but to include in our lives. One of the bigger problems with sadness or depression is there’s so much shame around it. If you have it you’re a failure. You are felt as being very unattractive.
Mike Mills
The choices that we make through our lives, the people who intersect us on our path kind of change what our fated destiny is. So some of us are lucky enough for the choices that we make to keep us on our path.
Anthony Mackie
Presidential campaigns are exhausting. Once they’re over, we all heave a sigh of relief that we have our lives back, the constant emails and news reports no longer harangue us, and the topic even turns at times to something else entirely.
Marianne Williamson
I cry when I feel moved by incredible generosity or a connection to someone. We spend so much of our lives being separated. It’s the relief of connection that produces the tears.
Michael Sheen
If we rationalize our problems when He points them out, we will spend less and less time meditating because we won’t want to face God in that area of our lives.
Charles Stanley
Clouds do not really look like camels or sailing ships or castles in the sky. They are simply a natural process at work. So too, perhaps, are our lives.
Roger Ebert
Love, work, and knowledge are the wellsprings of our lives, they should also govern it.
Wilhelm Reich
What scares me? Oh, now that’s a big question. I don’t know what scares me – cockroaches, nuclear apocalypse. Fear is an interesting thing. It has a place in all of our lives. I try to be as fearless as possible. I don’t always succeed, but I like to think I try.
Zachary Quinto
We’re very lucky to be able to go back and reclaim something that was a very special part of all our lives.
Roger Andrew Taylor
It is a great blessing to have light in our lives – a light that helps us see things as they really are, light that illuminates our understanding, light we can follow with confidence and perfect trust.
Margaret D. Nadauld
And music was a very important part of our lives. The radio was on all day.
Ruben Blades
Can we ignore what is going on around us, can we disconnect ourselves, our own material situation, our spiritual selves, who we are, can we disconnect that from history and the social context of our lives? The older I get, the more I’m convinced that we cannot, that we are social creatures.
Martin Donovan
In giving us children, God places us in a position of both leadership and service. He calls us to give up our lives for someone else’s sake – to abandon our own desires and put our child’s interests first. Yet, according to His perfect design, it is through this selflessness that we can become truly fulfilled.
Charles Stanley
From the time we open our eyes, we live in a Steadicam form, and the only editing is when we talk about our lives or remember things.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
For all the tribulations in our lives, for all the troubles that remain in the world, the decline of violence is an accomplishment that we can savor – and an impetus to cherish the forces of civilization and enlightenment that made it possible.
Steven Pinker
Today, people idolize athletes and celebrities – and yes, highly successful and visionary business people like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but not the innovators who perhaps have not seen such high-flying levels of success. Can anyone name the inventors of GPS, which has such a huge impact on our lives today?
Naveen Jain
I just wanted to defend football, which is not always easy to do. Those of us who have been in the sport so many years now realise we must protect it and look after it. I was speaking about football, what it means. It is our profession, it has been our lives, and we must take care of it a little.
Vicente del Bosque
I have a deep conviction that our lives are eternal, that it is waking and sleeping, that we are born together with the people we love lifetime after lifetime.
Marcia Wallace
My fascination with letting images repeat and repeat – or in film’s case ‘run on’ – manifests my belief that we spend much of our lives seeing without observing.
Andy Warhol
While television is a good servant, it’s a bad master. It can swallow up huge quantities of our lives without much happiness bang for the buck.
Gretchen Rubin
I knew I could write infinitely about relationships. That’s the most beautiful, most confusing, most rewarding, most heartbreaking thing in our lives – and not just romantic relationships: that’s all relationships.
Spike Jonze
All of us suffer difficulties in our lives. And if you say to yourself ‘find a way,’ you’ll make it through.
Diana Nyad
We live unto Him, so committing our service to the Lord is the first and foremost priority of our lives. We can start with our reasonable service: prayer, studying, fasting, tithing, fellowshipping, and witnessing.
Monica Johnson
In the mental calmness of a spiritual life, I have foun

In the mental calmness of a spiritual life, I have found that the answers to the whys in our lives are able to come to you. In my music I find the same thing.
Clarence Clemons
All of us, at certain moments of our lives, need to take advice and to receive help from other people.
Alexis Carrel
Our lives are connected in ways we can’t imagine. They’re connected even before we know they’re connected.
George C. Wolfe
Once we realize the extraordinary power we have to compose our lives, we’ll move from passive, conditioned thinking to being co-creators of our fate.
Jason Silva
When top scientists and psychologists talk about what’s important to our overall wellbeing and how satisfied we are with our lives, the only thing that they all agree on is that social relationships are probably the single best predictor of our overall happiness.
Tom Rath
We all tell our own stories the way we live our lives. My story is: Life is too short to not believe in fresh voices. I don’t have Hollywood stars. I have great American artists.
Kevin McCollum
Fiscal conservatism is just an easy way to express something that is a bit more difficult, which is that the size and scope of government, and really the size and scope of politics in our lives, has grown uncomfortable, unwieldy, intrusive and inefficient.
P. J. O’Rourke
We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.
Charles Kettering
It seems everyone is converging on a simple set of facts: Our lives are digital, and we wish to share our lives. Pinterest came at it through images, artfully curated. Facebook came at it through friends, cunningly organized. Dropbox came to it via files, cleverly clouded.
John Battelle
Most of us manage the fateful things that happen in our lives the best we can, certainly not to a Stalin-like 20-year plan.
Jo Brand
What I know now is that we’re all interconnected and that’s a really beautiful thing. We have links to everyone else in our lives and in the world. Different people have different journeys for different reasons. You can’t judge, but you can celebrate that there are connections everywhere.
Jane Seymour
Mortal experiences give us the opportunity to assess what we are doing with our lives.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Those of us who believe in God and those of us who have dedicated our lives to helping others in the name of God don’t want to take a second seat to anyone who is suggesting that one word out of the platform means that the Democrats across America are godless.
Dick Durbin
We are what we are because of the people in our lives. What would I be without my family and close friends?
Parineeti Chopra
The rejection that we all take and the sadness and the aggravation and the loss of jobs and all of the things that we live through in our lives, without a sense of humor, I don’t know how people make it.
Marlo Thomas
Everything is not black-and-white. I’m really interested in the gray area – not justifying it, not glorifying it, not condoning it, but at least having people see there’s a genesis for every event in our lives. There’s some divine order to it, whether it’s ugly or beautiful.
Isaiah Washington
There are big tournaments going on around the world, and some of them you cannot ignore because, financially, they make a huge difference in our lives.
AB de Villiers
The biggest determinant in our lives is culture, where we are born, what the environment looks like. But the second biggest determinant is probably governance, good governance or a certain kind of governance makes a huge difference in our lives.
Nicolas Berggruen
I resent the fact that people in places like Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco believe that they should be able to tell us how to live our lives, operate our businesses, and what to do with the land that we love and cherish.
Wilford Brimley
We cannot afford to walk down that dangerous path of government overstepping its boundaries into the most personal parts of our lives.
Tulsi Gabbard
So much of our lives is given over to the consideration of our imperfections that there is no time to improve our imaginary virtues. The truth is we only perfect our vices, and man is a worse creature when he dies than he was when he was born.
Edward Dahlberg
I am trying to inspire people to just take control of their oral health, because if we don’t take care of our oral health, it affects so many different aspects of our lives. If your smile and mouth is not together, it affects your relationship, your self-esteem, your health.
Sherri Shepherd
I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories – I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living.
Ishmael Beah
Although technology has enhanced our lives in many ways, it has also ensured the erosion of imagination.
Alexandra Adornetto
Is this America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where we have to sleep with our telephones off the hooks because our lives be threatened daily, because we want to live as decent human beings in America?
Fannie Lou Hamer
Fame has also this great drawback, that if we pursue it, we must direct our lives so as to please the fancy of men.
Baruch Spinoza
It is up to us, to this present generation of Americans, to take a stand for freedom, to send a message to Washington that we’re taking our future back from the grips of central planners who would control our healthcare, who would spend our treasure, who downgrade our future and micro-manage our lives.
Rick Perry
It is human nature, especially as we get older, to look for stability in our lives. But if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to fight against that somewhat, as starting a business requires movement. You cannot stay still.
Robert Herjavec
The possibilities for creation and insight are endless. We’re constantly collecting more data, and it’s starting to be very relevant to our lives.
Aaron Koblin
Extending our lives, extending our creativity, opening up the mysteries of the brain. All those things that are really exciting – that’s kind of the basis of ‘Neon Future,’ and that’s why I interviewed Ray Kurzweil and Aubrey de Grey.
Steve Aoki
The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
Albert Einstein
There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do

There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do our level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgment, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands.
Orison Swett Marden
One of the great penalties those of us who live our lives in full view of the public must pay is the loss of that most cherished birthright of man’s, privacy.
Mary Pickford
When literature exists, perhaps we do not notice how important it is, but when it does not exist, our lives become coarsened and brutal. For this reason, I am proud of my profession, but also aware of its importance.
Mo Yan
So much of our lives are defined by habit or what the guy next to us is doing, never wondering and knowing who and what we support with our actions, from the detergent Mom always used, to my favorite dish I make… A lot of my life is unexamined habit.
Kristin Bauer van Straten
For many of us, sport has provided the continuity in our lives, the alternative family to the one we left behind. It gives us something to talk about, to preen about, to care about.
John Thorn
We need a national universal paid family leave program that allows families to be together in the most important moments of our lives – from having a baby to caring for a dying parent.
Deb Haaland
The spiritual message is we lose our lives in pleasing others; if you’re the good child who pleases Mommy and Daddy but internalizes anger, you’re setting yourself up for disease.
Bernie Siegel
With our lives and food chain set up to make us fat – I mean, you can’t drive down any highway in America and find a grapefruit – a guy needs to be smarter and more determined to get lean.
David Zinczenko
Who’s, like, inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in our lives?
Anderson Cooper
It feels like we have two threads running through our lives: one pulling us into the world to achieve, the other pulling us back to replenish us. These threads can seem at odds, but really, they enforce each other. It’s not a trade-off between success and sleep.
Arianna Huffington
Once humans traded their hunter-gatherer existences for more settled communities, we began a quest to make our lives better and more comfortable, but we’ve also been sucking precious finite resources from our environment ever since.
Naveen Jain
When you put the interest of a kid on money instead of heart then you’re destroying the beauty of our lives and our thought process, which should be about how much responsibilities you carry as an athlete and a citizen.
Alexis Arguello
America’s highways, roads, bridges, are an indispensable part of our lives. They link one end of our nation to the other. We use them each and every day, for every conceivable purpose.
Christopher Dodd
There is an eternal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives.
Josephine Hart
Our lives sometimes depend on computers performing as predicted.
Philip Emeagwali
I hate to see complacency prevail in our lives when it’s so directly contrary to the teaching of Christ.
Jimmy Carter
We shall all die, and our lives will be irrelevant then.
Jeanette Winterson
We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.
William Law
There’s a false notion that success is a zero sum game. To win in our careers we have to give up family. To work hard we have to sacrifice sleep. To accomplish we must take (or borrow or steal) from somewhere else in our lives. It’s just not the case.
Maynard Webb
We spend so much of our lives not feeling but doing, doing, doing, and movies remind us that we are human. That life is all the things we see, and yet there is beauty there. There’s a celebration of life and all of its intricacies. Movies are magnificent.
Nadine Velazquez
I now proceed to demonstrate that the Mexicans are wholly incapable of self-government, and that our liberties, our fortunes and our lives are insecure so long as we are connected with them.
William H. Wharton
How quickly we forget God’s great deliverances in our lives. How easily we take for granted the miracles he performed in our past.
David Wilkerson
Bush’s presidency is revisionism-proof. We’re going to be recovering from it for the rest of our lives.
Michael Moore
The most formative time of our lives are the years between birth and age 21, when we explore who we are and learn from those who surround us.
Ben Shapiro
We do not need to proselytise either by our speech or by our writing. We can only do so really with our lives. Let our lives be open books for all to study.
Mahatma Gandhi
I’ve been lucky enough to live through all the things that are supposed to give meaning to our lives, like parenting, grandparenting, art, celebrity. All these things you expect meaning to come from, and sometimes it comes when you’re not expecting it.
Alan Alda
Man is created to be God’s deputy on earth and it is important to realize the obligation to rid ourselves of all illusions and to make our lives a preparation for the next life.
Cat Stevens
For every fresh stage in our lives we need a fresh education, and there is no stage for which so little educational preparation is made as that which follows the reproductive period.
Havelock Ellis
I am a product of Indian cinema; I’ve grown up watching Indian films ever since I can remember. And song and dance is part of our lives; it’s part of our culture; we wake up to songs, we sleep to lullabies, you know, we celebrate every religious and traditional function with music.
Karan Johar
Respecting our veterans includes providing them the ways and means they so desperately need to reintegrate into our lives and serve us again as productive members of our civilian community.
Charles B. Rangel
Time turns the old days to derision, Our loves into corpses or wives; And marriage and death and division Make barren our lives.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
I think a director can make a play happen before your e

I think a director can make a play happen before your eyes so that you are part of it and it is part of you. If you can get it right, there’s no mystery. It’s not about mystery. It’s not even mysterious. It’s about our lives.
Mike Nichols
There’s an undeniable thrill in seeing what’s most current in our lives offered back to us in fictional guise, but it soon dates and it’s never enough.
Graham Swift
The young person isn’t certain that love can be real; the middle-aged man is only discovering that it is; and the older person seems so sure of it. I was interested in the way that many of us go through the whole of our lives staying with someone just out of complacency, because leaving isn’t easy.
Conor McPherson
There is a barbarism in the American soul, and we must protect some of it by law. To root it out is to endanger our lives on the one hand, and our liberty on the other.
Charlie Pierce
What will you and I give for Christmas this year? Let us in our lives give to our Lord and Savior the gift of gratitude by living His teachings and following in His footsteps.
Thomas S. Monson
I think there is a complicated side effect to overcoming evil in that we are forever changed by it. I think after we ingest some of the cruelty of the world, it takes years off of our lives, but it also gives us wisdom and a little grace, hopefully a sense of compassion.
Adam Rapp
There is something in even the darkest situations that we can make a positive in our lives.
Deborah Norville
Books have the power to be the light we are seeking at crucial moments in our lives. Reading helps us realize we are not alone, that we can change our circumstances and even achieve the impossible.
Gioconda Belli
We made ‘Baahubali’ with pure intentions. It taught us that we might be remembered for the rest of our lives if we do something with good intentions in our hearts.
Prabhas
The paradox of faith is that when we conform our lives to Christ then we gain our true freedom. And its fruit is profound and lasting happiness.
Vincent Nichols
Messaging is such an integral part of our lives, and Begroupd will help solve problems everyone can relate to.
Khloe Kardashian
I’m 48 years old, not a kid anymore by any definition, but here is a universal truth that every adult at some point will realize: We are all always 17 years old, waiting for our lives to begin.
Harlan Coben
We will not waste 30 years of our lives dealing with extremist ideas; we will destroy them today.
Mohammad bin Salman
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
Roger Caras
Above and beyond the question of how to grow the economy there is a legitimate concern about how to grow the quality of our lives.
Paul Wellstone
I trust God’s timing. I’m a very spiritual person, and a lot of times, we want things on our time, and we come up with our own plans of what we want to do with our lives, but God be like, ‘Haha, you’re funny. That’s cute. Anyways, this is what you’re going to do,’ and I’ve learned to just sit back.
LeToya Luckett
Politics organizes our lives. We can’t disregard it. Politics has lot of muck, lot of dirt. But that doesn’t mean you have to be away from it. It’s ubiquitous.
Pawan Kalyan
AI – not so some kind of far-off thing. It’s part of our lives now, from your phone to everything you do. It makes our lives easier in a lot of ways.
Gemma Chan
Most of us have only two or three genuinely interesting moments in our lives; the rest is filler.
Douglas Coupland
Places are part of nature, of the bigger picture. We are interrelated. When we contemplate them in their own right, they can sometimes change our lives; they can become spiritual experiences.
Etel Adnan
When will the day come that our dignity will be fully restored, when the purpose of our lives will no longer be merely to survive until the sun rises tomorrow!
Thabo Mbeki
I know that one day all transgender individuals will have the freedom to be who they are, no matter what. And we won’t have to face the cruel judgments of society. We can just live our lives and be treated and respected like everyone else.
Jazz Jennings
We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.
Toni Morrison
I never set out to make a movie that was everything to everybody; if that were the case, we could all just take a picture of a tree and agree that the tree is beautiful and move on with our lives. I wouldn’t even need to show up.
Shane Carruth
I’m not an historian and I’m not wanting to write about how I perceive the social change over the century as a historian, but as somebody who’s walked through it and whose life has been dictated by it too, as all our lives are.
Penelope Lively
All but a very few of us are in debt. We exist as entities who borrow money and spend the rest of our lives making interest payments on a debt tally that never seems to budge. Whatever wealth we have, in labor, property or cash, is suctioned to the top.
Roger Ebert
‘Journey’ is a way for us to explore the crossing, the intersection of our lives between each other.
Jenova Chen
The brain is the cornerstone of virtually every facet of our lives. I wish we knew more.
Tan Le
It is the belief that extremes and excesses of inequality must be reduced so that each person is free to fully develop his or her full potential. This is why we take precious time out of our lives and give it to politics.
Paul Wellstone
I don’t think we are going to become extinct. We’re very clever and extremely resourceful – and we will find ways of preserving ourselves, of that I’m sure. But whether our lives will be as rich as they are now is another question.
David Attenborough
Compared to America or Europe, God isn’t a big part of our lives here. I don’t know anyone here who goes to church when he’s had a rough divorce or is going through depression. We go out into nature instead.
Bjork
We all face crossroads in our lives where we can retrea

We all face crossroads in our lives where we can retreat into ourselves, or we can hit the dance floor.
Sebastian Lelio
I believe that government is too large, costs too much, spends too much, and has too much regulatory power in our lives.
Tim Walberg
All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them.
Erma Bombeck
But every single damn thing matters! Only we don’t realize. We just tell ourselves that art runs on one track and life, our lives, on another, and we don’t realize that’s a lie.
Roberto Bolano
Money can come and go, and fame comes and goes. Peace of mind and a relationship with God is far more important, so this is the precedent that we’ve set in our lives. The bottom line is, we all die, so Jesus is the answer.
Phil Robertson
And this is one of the major questions of our lives: how we keep boundaries, what permission we have to cross boundaries, and how we do so.
A. B. Yehoshua
Put bluntly, the American church today accepts grace in theory but denies it in practice. We say we believe that the fundamental structure of reality is grace, not works – but our lives refute our faith.
Brennan Manning
There’s a direct link between percentage of young people that are educated and how we live our lives.
Jeb Bush
A long time ago, I learned not to go up to the boss and ask what’s happening to my character. I haven’t done that for 20 years, since I was on ‘Days of Our Lives.’
Michael Easton
Chemical synthesis is uniquely positioned at the heart of chemistry, the central science, and its impact on our lives and society is all pervasive.
Elias James Corey
Most of our lives aren’t that exciting, but the drama is still going on in the small details.
David Byrne
For me, I don’t like it when there is too much interference in our lives. We’re not children. It is our own life in our hands.
Eric Cantona
We complain of the increased tempo of our lives, but our frenetic lives are just reflection of the economic system that we have created.
Stanley Hauerwas
I was on Days Of Our Lives for about three months.
Steve Burton
Every moment in our lives is a miracle we should enjoy instead of ignoring.
Yoko Ono
The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.
Jorge Luis Borges
Knowing more about numbers and being acquainted with them will not only enrich our lives but also contribute towards managing our day to day affairs much better.
Shakuntala Devi
I felt I couldn’t be a good mom anymore, but I didn’t want my children to grow up without a mom. I felt I had to end our lives to protect us from any grief or harm.
Susan Smith
I became an engineer because I believe in the power of technology to enrich our lives.
Craig Federighi
Zombies, vampires, Frankenstein’s monster, robots, Wolfman – all of this stuff was really popular in the ’50s. Robots are the only one of those make-believe monsters that have become real. They are really in our lives in a meaningful way. That’s pretty fascinating to me.
Daniel H. Wilson
With the observable fact that scientific knowledge makes our lives better when applied with concern for human welfare and environmental protection, there is no question that science and technology can produce abundance so that no one has to go without.
Jacque Fresco
Worshipping the Lord means giving Him the place that he must have; worshipping the Lord means stating, believing – not only by our words – that He alone truly guides our lives; worshipping the Lord means that we are convinced before Him that He is the only God, the God of our lives, the God of our history.
Pope Francis
Our lives are programmed at conception and are endowed with purpose and meaning.
Jeane Dixon
What we do at its very, very best, at its very, very most, will shift us slightly in our seat. If only for two hours, great. If for the rest of our lives, even better.
Campbell Scott
I feel like I’m part of a generation of people who are stuck in the past and are really self-absorbed. I mean, we’re actually taking pictures of ourselves and posting them on Facebook, and keeping in touch with people that should have been out of our lives 15 years ago.
Diablo Cody
The Iraq war was fought by one-half of one percent of us. And unless we were part of that small group or had a relative who was, we went about our lives as usual most of the time: no draft, no new taxes, no changes. Not so for the small group who fought the war and their families.
Bob Schieffer
The dirty little secret that nobody likes to talk about is that things just might have been better before the Internet. We had more time to ourselves before cell phones and text messaging and Facebook consumed our lives.
Tom Green
All the crap that we’ve encumbered our lives with, it’s really meaningless.
Emilio Estevez
Social media and smart phones have become an inevitable part of our lives. We shouldn’t be under their control, which is wrong. It is mere stupidity, and we must be aware of everything around us.
Aishwarya Rajesh
Justice is the insurance which we have on our lives and property. Obedience is the premium which we pay for it.
William Penn
I never wanted to do biography just to tell the life of a famous man. I always wanted to use the life of a man to examine political power, because democracy shapes our lives.
Robert Caro
At midlife, I think a woman has more in common with her

At midlife, I think a woman has more in common with her teenage children than anybody else. We all are kind of uncertain. We realize for the first time in either our lives or decades that we’re in charge now.
Jane Pauley
I was lucky, as many of my generation was, in having a man like Dr. King in our lives. He came at a time that we needed to take a long look at each other and see how similar we were.
Lena Horne
Our bodies are shaped to bear children, and our lives are a working out of the processes of creation. All our ambitions and intelligence are beside that great elemental point.
Phyllis McGinley
Our lives are not in the lap of the gods, but in the lap of our cooks.
Lin Yutang
I think that we need mythology. We need a bedrock of story and legend in order to live our lives coherently.
Alan Moore
A purpose of our lives is to broaden what we can understand and say and therefore be.
Salman Rushdie
Making the Hall of Fame, would it be something that’s gratifying because of what I’ve sacrificed? Sure. Baseball has been a big part of our lives. We’ve sacrificed our bodies. It’s the way we made our living.
Barry Bonds
As told in Friendship with God, if we simply decided to believe and act as if first, we’re all one, and second, life is eternal, it would render virtually everything we’ve done all our lives pointless.
Neale Donald Walsch
Sometimes the rewards of risk don’t leave us wrecked. Sometimes we find our passion, our purpose, courage, connection, and comfort. Every good thing in our lives is a direct result of risk.
Glennon Doyle Melton
Both the Winter and the Summer Solstices are expressions of love. They show us the opposition of light and dark, expansion and contraction, that characterize our experiences in the Earth school so that we can recognize our options as we move through our lives.
Gary Zukav
As we develop the moral aspect of our lives, we often adapt standards of right and wrong that serve as guides and deterrents for our conduct.
Albert Bandura
I can remember somebody once saying to me that they thought my life must be less real than these other people that they were writing about, which I found a very peculiar thing ‘cos all our lives are equally real, and it’s just a matter of depicting them and talking about them.
Ronald Frame
The B-52s, you know, our songs are about volcanoes or lobsters. Cindy and I sing them like our lives depend on them. I feel very emotional when I’m singing ‘Rock Lobster,’ but I’ve wanted to sing more about my personal experience.
Kate Pierson
My wife and I have spent most of our lives in France, and we are both pretty well bilingual, my wife more purely than I, since as a little girl she went to school in French Switzerland.
Patrick O’Brian
I have two brothers and we basically spent our lives playing in the woods, falling in ponds, getting chased by wasps and riding donkeys that we shouldn’t have been riding.
Jo Brand
Out of the suffering of the 1930s, Britain built a civilising society, based in large part on the important lesson that unemployment is rarely the fault of individual malingering but the structural consequence of governments allowing the free market to rule our lives.
John McDonnell
There will always be something to ruin our lives, it all depends on what or which finds us first. We are always ripe and ready to be taken.
Charles Bukowski
I think we all suffer from guilt at some point in our lives, but for the most part I never really regret, and I try to always remain positive. Yes, I think that those issues are very interesting to play in a character, and they’re prominent issues in life, and I think people can relate to them.
Channing Tatum
Our lives are in God’s hands. We have no control. We can’t control Him by using the Bible or cross as a good luck charm without a thorough reformation of heart and life.
T. B. Joshua
And that’s how it is in America. We look to our communities, our faiths, our families for our joy, our support, in good times and bad. It is both how we live our lives and why we live our lives.
Mitt Romney
It means that the men who hold the means of life control our lives, and, because we workingmen have tried to get some measure of justice, some measure of betterment, they deny the right of the human being to associate with his fellow.
James Larkin
It’s easy to look at the things of this world to solve our challenges and obstacles in life, but when we submit our lives to Christ, His grace, mercy, peace and love will bring true fulfillment to our lives.
Bethany Hamilton
Mitch and I have known each other for such a long time, and we’re both so pleased to be given this opportunity at this point in our lives to play characters that we’ve never really had a chance to play before. It’s a great gift. Plus we’re wise enough to appreciate it.
Susan Sullivan
When bureaucrats talk about increasing our ‘access’ to x, y or z, what they’re really talking about is increasing exponentially their control over our lives. As it is with the government health care takeover, so it is with the newly approved government plan to ‘increase’ Internet ‘access.’
Michelle Malkin
Our society does not give nearly enough credit to business leaders who create jobs, behave ethically and provide products and services that enhance our lives.
Mark Skousen
Our thoughts really do create our lives. They’ve done a lot of research showing if you’re an optimistic, positive person you will be a healthier person than if you’re a sad, depressed, negative person.
Alana Stewart
Technology has made our lives both more efficient and more demanding.
Harris Faulkner
In the 21st century when few of us stay in the same job all our lives, I would like to think there was flexibility so teachers could become social workers, or foster carers become teachers.
Estelle Morris
We give a lot of others significance in our lives even when they don’t deserve it. It doesn’t matter if they’re family or if you’ve known them forever. If they’re not good for you, they’ve got to go.
Gabrielle Union
Fear runs our lives. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have to understand your relationship with fear. Whether you’re scared of getting into a relationship; or taking the new job; or a confrontation – you have to size fear up.
Chris Pine
Some of us have become so addicted to pointing fingers at others for all the wrong that happens in our lives that self-assessment has become synonymous with blaming the victim.
LZ Granderson
If we all knew we were going to live to be 150 years ol

If we all knew we were going to live to be 150 years old, we’d all approach our lives very differently.
Eric Bogosian
The power of television – it’s so present in our lives, we don’t even know how powerful it is.
Melissa Leo
In short, Now is Google’s attempt at becoming the real time interface to our lives – moving well beyond the siloed confines of ‘search’ and into the far more ambitious world of ‘experience.’ As in – every experience one has could well be lit by data delivered through Google Now.
John Battelle
The good thing that may yet happen during dying is not the possibility of survival when we’re beyond that point. The good thing that may yet happen is that our lives will have great meaning for those we leave behind.
Sherwin B. Nuland
There are holes in our lives that can never be filled – not really, not ever.
Jonathan Evison
We should always remember that it is by His invitation that we come to His holy house, the temple of the Lord. We should respond to His invitation by being worthy, by being prepared, and by having the temple as a priority in our lives. While in the temple we should act as if we are in His holy presence.
L. Lionel Kendrick
Ma was legally blind due to a degenerative eye disease she’d had since birth. This meant she was entitled to welfare, and our lives revolved around the first day of every month when her payment was due.
Liz Murray
We have the wrong impression of life. We think the very big incidents of our lives are consequences of huge dilemmas or major decisions. If we paid attention, we’d realize that the determining incidents in our lives are ordinary things.
Asghar Farhadi
Information technology and the Internet are rapidly transforming almost every aspect of our lives – some for better, some for worse.
John Landgraf
We fill our lives with all sorts of things that make it easier for us to get along in the world: wheelchairs, crutches, grabber sticks, hearing aids, canes, guide dogs, modified vehicles, ramps, as well as other kinds of services and supports. Disability does not necessarily mean dependence on other people.
Stella Young
When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives.
Ezra Taft Benson
My purpose… to go on with my heart and soul, devoting all my energies to Girl Scouts, and heart and hand with them, we will make our lives and the lives of the future girls happy, healthy and holy.
Juliette Gordon Low
Love is what we aspire to most in our lives.
Orlando Bloom
We are material creatures who spend much of our lives on material pursuits (even building a cathedral or writing a novel requires stone and mortar or paper and ink).
Virginia Postrel
The unreliable narrator is an odd concept. The way I see it, we’re all unreliable narrators of our lives who usually have absolute trust in our self-told stories. Any truth is, after all, just a matter of perspective.
Sarah Pinborough
Jill and I arrange our lives to spend a lot of time together. That makes us both happy.
Robert Wagner
The solution as consumers is – perhaps surprisingly – to take adverts very, very seriously. We should ask ourselves what it is that we find lovely in them – the visions of friendship, togetherness, repose, or whatever. And then consider what would actually help us find these qualities in our lives.
Alain de Botton
We all have to learn how to reengineer healthy living back into our lives.
Risa Lavizzo-Mourey
Penicillin and plastic bags help a lot, fridges and hot water make manliness more comfortable and Tom Ford’s fragrance range makes it smell better, but the idea that has pushed our lives into the light more than any other -ism or -ology is feminism.
A. A. Gill
To tell you the truth, I hadn’t seen any Pixar until I went to see ‘Wall-E,’ and I watched it and I was shocked to see how adult it was, with the setting in our lives, both present and future, and how they dealt with it… And then quite relieved to find that the one I was working on, ‘Up,’ how adult it was.
Ed Asner
My dear brothers and sisters, the joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.
Russell M. Nelson
We’ll become in our lives whoever the people we love the most say we are.
Bob Goff
Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test. It is a relationship. Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection; it is about connection. The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives.
Mike Yaconelli
Our lives are to be used and thus to be lived as fully as possible, and truly it seems that we are never so alive as when we concern ourselves with other people.
Harry Chapin
I think that we all have within us the potential for almost anything. If we play close attention to our lives, then we can get at it somehow.
Jake Gyllenhaal
Imagination in the child is powerful. Reading and laughter and love are essential in our lives.
Malachy McCourt
It is the cells which create and maintain in us, during the span of our lives, our will to live and survive, to search and experiment, and to struggle.
Albert Claude
I believe in the lessons of life. Some things are mapped out for us. By that I don’t mean that you wait for things to happen, but it’s interesting the way our lives are like a jigsaw where sometimes the pieces don’t fit – and other times they do.
Rita Tushingham
The power of pop culture stories should not be underestimated, and there is an enormous potential for inspirational stories that can have a positive, transformative effect on our lives.
Anita Sarkeesian
Our lives are so hectic and full, and we have a big family right now.
Marion Jones
The community of poets I belong to is not as close as it used to be, if only for the fact that our lives have become busier: jobs, children, and the like.
John Barton
I think we need to do some deep soul searching about wh

I think we need to do some deep soul searching about what’s important in our lives and renew our spirit and our spiritual thinking, whether it’s through faith-based religion or just through loving nature or helping your fellow man.
Louie Schwartzberg
We live in a material world. I’m not saying that beautiful things don’t enhance our lives. But, in our culture, we’re never happy.
Tom Ford
But we got up there and decided to stick to this mix of power chords and funk and that’s where it really started for us. In having the courage to take that decision. To take a gamble not just with our music but our lives.
Michael Hutchence
I understand the protests, but not the shooting and the attempts to bring down the state. We cannot allow hatred to control our lives. We must remain unified to defeat this evil.
Boris Trajkovski
I have lunches with my girlfriends, who just turned 40, and some of those lunches, we’re crying and screaming about our husbands, saying we want to leave them and run away. And then, other lunches, we’re fine and love our husbands and are happy with our lives.
Leslie Mann
I’m not interested at all in playing more than 12, 15 tournaments a year on an annual basis because like all the old guys out here on this Tour, we’ve played golf for nearly 30 years of our lives.
Greg Norman
We all have bad things that happen in our lives, and a lot of us wonder how we can go back to before the event, whatever it is. ‘Fallout 4’ is about realising that your life has a new normal. We want to put you in the shoes of someone who knows what life was like before this.
Todd Howard
Bernard and I intend doing a lot with our lives and that includes actively helping other people. But how can we tell you our plans when we haven’t finished making them yet?
Shelley Duvall
Barriers have been broken: rappers are singing, and singers are rapping. You might catch a rapper on a rock song, a pop artist on a hip-hop song – there are so many different things that are going on today. That is the same way in which we live our lives; we’re all over the place. I like to try different things.
Trey Songz
In the pain, the agony, and the heroic endeavors of life, we pass through a refiner’s fire, and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright, intact, and strong.
James E. Faust
There are high spots in all of our lives and most of them have come about through encouragement from someone else. I don’t care how great, how famous or successful a man or woman may be, each hungers for applause.
George Matthew Adams
I think a lot of people in America do not understand that the basis of true liberty can’t happen without an objective moral standard by which we live our lives.
Mike Huckabee
Automobiles are fun and exciting. We need them. They are a part of our lives.
Alan Mulally
I was on the soap opera ‘Days of our Lives.’
Ashley Benson
And we think that our citizens and yours would be very angry if they thought that we hadn’t taken every possible step for prevention and then for joint action in the likelihood of those who threaten our lives and our well- being, taking action at the same time.
David Blunkett
Whether we appreciate it or not, we live out our lives surrounded by an intricate pattern of social connections… We’re all embedded in this network; it affects us profoundly and we may be unaware of its existence, of its effect on us.
Nicholas A. Christakis
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Charles R. Swindoll
We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.
Earl Nightingale
We’re past the age of heroes and hero kings… Most of our lives are basically mundane and dull, and it’s up to the writer to find ways to make them interesting.
John Updike
At this crucial time in our lives, when everything is so desperate, when every day is a matter of survival, I don’t think you can help but be involved.
Nina Simone
It ends all things: birds, trees, flowers, mountain tops, and business; it grinds stones to sand, and as terrible as it is, and it’s the most beautiful thing we have in our lives – time.
Brandon Webb
The first Superman film took up a huge chunk of our lives, but it was a wonderful time for us. We were young, my daughter was little, we were filming in London for a year, so we became like a close family.
Margot Kidder
This is our lives. The way to give it dignity is to tell the truth.
Lee Grant
We owned what we learned back there; the experience and the growth are grafted into our lives.
Ellen Goodman
Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.
Ray Kurzweil
Negative humor is forgotten immediately. It’s the stuff that makes us feel better about our lives that lives long. Much more satisfying. Enter children’s books.
Berkeley Breathed
I don’t ever remember not praying. Bedtime prayers, the rosary, praying for friends, relatives, for the sick and for those who had died. It was a natural part of our lives.
Florence Henderson
The spiritual path – is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don’t know it.
Marianne Williamson
Our whole life is set up in the path of least resistance. We don’t want to suffer. We don’t want to feel discomfort. So the whole time, we’re living our lives in a very comfortable area. There’s no growth in that.
David Goggins
Bandwagons roll through our lives. It’s up to you whether you jump on them unquestioningly or jump on them to overturn them and subvert them.
Riz Ahmed
Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.
Steven Spielberg
In barely one generation, we've moved from exulting in

In barely one generation, we’ve moved from exulting in the time-saving devices that have so expanded our lives to trying to get away from them – often in order to make more time. The more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug.
Pico Iyer
I am an avid hunter and marksman, and I will not hesitate to shoot anyone who has myself or family in fear for our lives.
Kid Rock
We don’t want to be treated any differently, and we want to continue with our lives and our careers.
Vanessa Kerry
One of the most important things that I have learned in my 57 years is that life is all about choices. On every journey you take, you face choices. At every fork in the road, you make a choice. And it is those decisions that shape our lives.
Mike DeWine
We spend our lives trying to get along with people so we can keep our jobs, keep our marriages together, so that we can raise our kids properly.
Helen Fisher
This is why fashion is such a magical part of our lives, for it inspires our decisions without dictating them; it sets the theme but not the limits of our aesthetic.
Simon Van Booy
There are good people who are dealt a bad hand by fate, and bad people who live long, comfortable, privileged lives. A small twist of fate can save or end a life; random chance is a permanent, powerful player in each of our lives, and in human history as well.
Jeff Greenfield
Even as technology becomes increasingly critical to the way we live our lives, power our world and defend our shores, the United States has allowed the production of minerals crucial in the creation of these advanced products to slide.
Hank Johnson
I know with all my heart and soul that God lives. I believe He will enlighten our lives with His love for each of us if we strive to be worthy of that love, in the holy name of Jesus Christ, amen.
James E. Faust
My grandmother was probably the first person who I thought was beautiful. She was incredibly stylish, she had big hair, big cars. I was probably 3 years old, but she was like a cartoon character. She’d swoop into our lives with presents and boxes, and she always smelled great and looked great.
Tom Ford
Sometimes we question things that we have done in our lives but how many times do we question what we haven’t done in someone else’s.
Ian Thorpe
Sometimes a movie encapsulates a period or a moment in all of our lives in such a way that it never dies.
Patrick Swayze
What changed our lives forever was when Malcolm had the idea to sell rock ‘n roll records to trendy customers.
Vivienne Westwood
One of my best friends is named David Leventhal, and it has always been a constant source of amusement to see how the similarity and differences play out in our lives.
David Levithan
I spent a couple years just earnestly praying, asking the question that I don’t think we ask enough: ‘God what do you want to do with me?’ Really getting into our prayer closet, seeking His heart, asking what He wants to do in our lives.
Scott Pruitt
We should strive for steadiness, and for a commitment to God that does not ebb and flow with the years or the crises of our lives.
Thomas S. Monson
The days, months, and years eventually reveal, like a Polaroid, a clear picture of how significant events and decisions ultimately shape our lives.
Hoda Kotb
We spend millions of dollars to remove pain from our lives. It’s why so many people get hooked on painkillers. The body becomes addicted to painlessness. That tells you a lot.
Henry Rollins
Sometimes it takes a wake-up call, doesn’t it, to alert us to the fact that we’re hurrying through our lives instead of actually living them; that we’re living the fast life instead of the good life. And I think, for many people, that wake-up call takes the form of an illness.
Carl Honore
Our morality is based on so many factors: of where we were born, who we were born to, what values were instilled in us, what values we chose, the way that our lives have shaped us. That dictates so much of what we assume is our morality, and also the culture, all of these things.
Oscar Isaac
There’s no commodity we can take with us. There is only our lives, whether we live them wisely or whether we live them in ignorance. And this is everything.
Sharon Salzberg
Yom HaShoah is a vital day in the Jewish calendar, providing us with a focal point for our remembrance. We cannot bring the dead back to life, but we can bring their memory back to life and ensure they are not forgotten. We can undertake in our lives to do what they were so cruelly prevented from doing in theirs.
Jonathan Sacks
Two of the central ingredients to our family are food and faith, so sitting down together and thanking God for the food He’s provided means everything to us. Prayer is a natural part of our lives – not only around the dinner table, but all day long.
Phil Robertson
At some point in our lives there’s something about every one of us that makes us feel like an outsider, I believe.
Lance Bass
TV is a major force in our lives – a FORCE. It must be handled very carefully, both its censure and its artistic honesty.
Bill Bixby
When my mother died, and when my father died, it’s big. Our parents are giants; they’re titans of our lives, so of course it’s going to be a big deal.
Loudon Wainwright III
Many of us spend the first part of our adult lives becoming – stepping into the roles we take on so that they come to define our lives. But I’ve learned that we don’t really grow up until we unbecome.
Glennon Doyle Melton
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I think we spend so much of our lives trying to pretend that we know what’s going to happen next. In fact we don’t. To recognize that we don’t know even what will happen this afternoon and yet having the courage to move forward – that’s one meaning of faith.
Sharon Salzberg
Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have.
John C. Maxwell
Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.
Louise L. Hay
Grace is a much more accurate word to use when dealing

Grace is a much more accurate word to use when dealing with the state of human existence. God gives us unmerited favor through Jesus Christ, and since Adam and Eve, our lives have depended on it.
Monica Johnson
In most of our situations in life, if we take a good honest look at our lives, we are holding to small, limiting thoughts, cynical thoughts.
Marianne Williamson
Our phones are so intimately connected to us, to our lives. Putting advertising on a device like that is a bad idea. You don’t want to be interrupted by ads when you’re chatting with your loved ones.
Jan Koum
Old age may have its limitations and challenges, but in spite of them, our latter years can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling of our lives.
Billy Graham
We all die, we all get sick, we all feel hunger and lust and pain, and therefore human life is consistent from one generation to the other. We all – most of us, anyway – want connections with other people and spend our lives looking for them.
Paul Auster
All of us involved say ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ was the best five years of our lives. We were like otters at play.
Dick Van Dyke
We went with the St. Lawrence Experience, which is run by Joe Babbitt, who is a close friend now. We went out there for 10 days and we had the best week of our lives, and we’ve been going back since. We’ve been back three times now.
Tom Felton
Fashion is not trivial. It’s a huge industry and a big part of our lives. Fashion is about us – how we look and present ourselves, how we can change ourselves, and our perceptions. You can dress up to be quite glorious creatures – it’s all a very important part of life.
Charlotte Rampling
Clearly, we are not programmed at birth to behave a certain way based on our gender. Instead, we are trained throughout our lives to conform to our gender norms.
Naveen Jain
Life can be tough sometimes. But I think it just starts with admitting, ‘Okay, the world’s not perfect, how do we live our lives within that and not be miserable?’
Amy Lee
It’s learning how to negotiate to keep both sides happy – whether it’s for a multi-million dollar contract or just which show to watch on TV, that determines the quality and enjoyment of our lives.
Leigh Steinberg
We may not ever fully understand why God allows the suffering that devastates our lives. We may not ever find the right answers to how we’ll dig ourselves out.
Tullian Tchividjian
Some of us find our lives abridged even before the paperback comes out.
Berkeley Breathed
Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.
Audre Lorde
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.
Mary Kay Ash
Education is the process in which we discover that learning adds quality to our lives. Learning must be experienced.
William Glasser
We all have these notions of cool that come about at different points in our lives, and it’s interesting in how it evolves or doesn’t evolve in different people.
Noah Baumbach
The third person allows characters to really attack themselves. We all do this – attack ourselves – every hour of our lives.
Chuck Palahniuk
Mother’s Day is a torment if your mother is dead. Valentine’s Day is a torment if you don’t got one. And at some point in our lives, we will be tormented by Valentine’s Day even if we’re relatively lucky in love.
Dan Savage
I could never understand why our lives felt like a struggle while those living off government largesse enjoyed trinkets that I only dreamed about.
J. D. Vance
There’s nothing heavier than the weight of sin in our lives. It’s crushing. What a luxury to know the burden of it can be lifted off our shoulders if we repent and give it to God.
Terri Blackstock
I think we all want something to knock us on the head and change our lives.
Neil Burger
When I was a kid, there was teasing in school. Then when I was a teenager on ‘Days of Our Lives,’ I certainly experienced hurtful comments from ‘fans’ of the show.
Alison Sweeney
I don’t put myself into the category of ‘rock star writing his biography.’ That’s because we live our lives by falling into experiences. Things happen to us. Something you do takes hold of you, and then you do a lot of it.
Art Garfunkel
By appreciating the darkness when you design the light, you create much more interesting environments that truly enhance our lives.
Rogier van der Heide
We want a state wise in its contemplation – just in its actions – and moderate in the reach of government into our lives.
Sonny Perdue
Dates that come around every year help us measure progress in our lives. One annual event, New Year’s Day, is a time of reflection and resolution.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
We poison our lives with fear of burglary and shipwreck, and, ask anyone, the house is never burgled, and the ship never goes down.
Jean Anouilh
We can’t let fear steer the way, dictate our lives.
Kalki Koechlin
On one of the most personal matters of our lives, our health care, President Obama would turn decision making over to government bureaucrats. He forced through Obama-care and I will repeal it.
Mitt Romney
I always start my New Year at church with my family. I see it as a fresh beginning – like a new chance we get to renew our lives, perhaps? Starting it by praying gives me a lot of hope for the future.
Nivin Pauly
To some extent, all authors are a little schizophrenic.

To some extent, all authors are a little schizophrenic. We lead most of our lives in solitary confinement, living and breathing the books that we’re writing.
Sophie Kinsella
There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.
Cyril Connolly
The scientific method is nearly perfect for understanding the physical aspects of our life. But it is a radically limited viewfinder in its inability to offer values, morals and meanings that are at the center of our lives.
Huston Smith
At the end of the seven years, ‘Family Ties’ voluntarily went off the air. And, we went off as the #1 show on TV that week. We cut down the nets on stage 24 and moved on with the rest of our lives. Always to carry with us the blessing of what we had gone through together.
Gary David Goldberg
For me, there was nothing like my time with the Eagles – ever. We were young, and the world was new to us. It was the happiest time of our lives. They wouldn’t let us play in their big leagues, but we had this game of ours… this marvelous, blessed game… and we just went out and played it.
Monte Irvin
You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events – how we interpret them – that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.
Tony Robbins
The longer we listen to one another – with real attention – the more commonality we will find in all our lives. That is, if we are careful to exchange with one another life stories and not simply opinions.
Barbara Deming
Sometimes we look for those thunderous things to happen in our life for our lives to change or go in the other direction. We seek the miracle. We seek the parting of the seas, the moving of the mountains. But no, it’s a quiet thing. At least for me it was.
Ben Vereen
I don’t think anybody can claim success at any part of our lives, private or professional, if there are others that don’t enjoy the same opportunities.
Jose Andres
Women can’t do everything at the same time, we need to understand milestones in our lives comes in segments.
Madeleine Albright
We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly – spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.
Susan L. Taylor
Science of mind teaches you how to realize how much control you have over your own life. It teaches you that we have the ability to change our lives at any point we choose.
Marla Gibbs
Christ has conquered death, not only by suppressing its evil effects, but by reversing its sting. By virtue of Christ’s rising again, nothing any longer kills inevitably, but everything is capable of becoming the blessed touch of the divine hands, the blessed influence of the will of God upon our lives.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
I believe God takes the things in our lives – family, background, education – and uses them as part of his calling. It might not be to become a pastor. But I don’t think God wastes anything.
Eugene H. Peterson
We need to recognise that what really matters isn’t buying more and more consumer goods, but family, friends, and knowing that we are doing something worthwhile with our lives. Helping to reduce the appalling consequences of world poverty should be part of that reassessment.
Peter Singer
My husband and I are either going to buy a dog or have a child. We can’t decide whether to ruin our carpet or ruin our lives.
Rita Rudner
One of the most interesting things about science fiction and fantasy is the way that the genres can offer different perspectives on matters to do with the body, the mind, medical technology, and the way we live our lives.
Tansy Rayner Roberts
Dogs are a really amazing eye opener for us humans because their lives are compressed into such a short period, so we can see them go from puppyhood to adolescence to strong adulthood and then into their sunset years in 10 to 12 years. It really drives home the point of how finite all our lives are.
John Grogan
I believe people are in our lives for a reason. We’re here to learn from each other.
Gillian Anderson
We don’t woo our wives with clubs. We don’t leave old folks on ice floes. And maybe the time has come to quit diving into rip tides to save people we don’t know. We’ve outgrown a lot of survival-of-the-fittest strategies, and risking our lives for strangers might be one of them.
Christopher McDougall
Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in Whom we believe. And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Much in the way Olympic athletes optimize their game by paying an enormous – borderline maniacal – amount of attention to things like diet, exercise, sleep, and of course the essential R&R, we all would do well to pay more attention to those key aspects of our lives that comprise our overall health equation.
David Agus
I’m just telling you, God permits things in our lives sometimes for reasons that we do not understand yet because of the spiritual level that we’re on. We can’t have any understanding of it, because we’re not at a place of spiritual growth yet where we understand the deeper things of God.
Joyce Meyer
As parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts we need to start getting out into nature with the young people in our lives. Families play a key role in getting kids outside.
David Suzuki
Facebook’s data trove is enviable, and its moves into nearly every aspect of our lives – from payment to media, will create even more of it. The company also has created a huge base of developers for its platform, but the ecosystem is incomplete compared to vertically integrated OSes like iOS, Mac or Windows.
John Battelle
‘Frozen’ definitely isn’t about a man, but about the relationship between two sisters. At different times in our lives we find ourselves either more connected to or disconnected from the people in our family, and I think audiences will really be able to relate to that.
Idina Menzel
I want it to be that transgender is normal. Let us live our lives. Let us be happy. The world will be a better place when we have that freedom. I think I’m going to be alive to see it.
Jazz Jennings
As a child our dreams got scattered all about and all our future prospects got scattered to so many places, and we spend our lives trying to find the little pieces that make up our lives and make up the dreams that we had as a child that got blown away in the windstorm.
Terrence Howard
In the original draft I was 27 and Peter was 55 in the script. That’s not the same as a guy in his 40s and a dad in the end of his 70s. It’s a different point in both our lives.
Paul Reiser
The day we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior is one of the greatest days of our lives. Not only are our sins washed away, but God puts His Spirit inside of us and gives us new desires.
Joyce Meyer
When alchemists were talking about turning lead to gold, they were talking about turning a leaden consciousness, which most of us exist in during our lives, into a golden consciousness, which is a much better place to be.
Alan Moore
When we benefit from CT scanners, M.R.I. devices, pacem

When we benefit from CT scanners, M.R.I. devices, pacemakers and arterial stents, we can immediately appreciate how science affects the quality of our lives.
Brian Greene
I write because I’m in love with language; because I like working for myself, inside my head; and because it’s the only way I know to make a stab at answering the never-ending questions of the heart that arise simply from the everyday living of our lives.
Julia Glass
The task which we have set ourselves is simply to show why and for what purpose we hold that standpoint during most of our lives, and why and for what purpose we are provisionally obliged to abandon it.
Ernst Mach
Because trans people are marked as artificial, unnatural, and illegitimate, our bodies and identities are often open to public dissection. Plainly, cisgender folks often take it as their duty to investigate our lives to see if we’re real.
Janet Mock
The BBC provides the commentary on our lives, the soundtrack of the nation. It is one of the most powerful unifying forces in the United Kingdom today.
Gavyn Davies
Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.
Pope Paul VI
A lot of people have said a lot of great things about Steve Jobs. And for good reason: he built the world’s second-most valuable company, with billions in profits and products that have improved every aspect of our lives. But Steve didn’t get there by being a soft, fluffy, Kumbaya-type leader.
Kevin O’Leary
We can change our lives for the better, and always have. We used to think pain during surgery and dying during childbirth were inevitable. We no longer accept that, and we shouldn’t just accept aging.
David Andrew Sinclair
I mean a song that’s specifically for the girls. It’s saying you know we talk about them night and day, we’re constantly pondering on men and what they’ve done good and what they’ve done bad and all these things in our lives.
Willa Ford
Hope, deceiving as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The last occasions when the timetable of our lives would be interrupted for many years to come.
Sister Parish
True adulthood occurs the moment we grasp that the people who raised us do not exist solely for our comfort and reassurance. From that point on, the steady stream of unconditional love and support we’ve expected from them all our lives has to flow both ways.
Lynn Coady
If the Holy Spirit can take over the subconscious with our consent and cooperation, then we have almighty Power working at the basis of our lives, then we can do anything we ought to do, go anywhere we ought to go, and be anything we ought to be.
E. Stanley Jones
We all get damned in our lives, and there are ripple effects. One thing can determine a life, and it’s hard to overcome that if the event is really traumatic. Your life is completely condemned by it.
Matthias Schoenaerts
I feel like God puts things in our lives to help prepare us for the future.
Louie Gohmert
I have a lady, she’s a great lady. I love her a lot, she loves me. We’re on the same page. Whenever that day happens when we’re not on the same page we’ll move forward with it. We’re interested in having our lives be our lives right now and not a third person’s vis-a-vis marriage and whatever that means.
Jon Hamm
Every single item that we come into contact with on a daily basis has been designed by an artist. From the toothbrush we use in the morning, to the defibrillator that could save our lives, an artist is behind the design.
Jarrett J. Krosoczka
Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty, to help build a strong middle class, to help educate our kids, and to make our lives better than all the programs of government combined.
Mitt Romney
As time passes, we like to simplify our lives.
Hubert de Givenchy
There are many ways of encouraging people to make life better other than joining a political party. Politics with a small ‘p’ isn’t just about darkened committee rooms, endless meetings – it is about giving people the right to make decisions about our lives.
John Reid
I think of animals more as spirits that come and go. They enter our lives at a particular time and they leave at a particular time. The whole glorious history of animals with people is about joy and connection. It’s about loving this creature and letting this creature love you.
Jon Katz
Poetry is the language we speak in the most terrifying or ecstatic passages of our lives. But the very word poetry scares people. They think of their grade school teachers reciting ‘Hiawatha’ and they groan.
Erica Jong
It’s about time we all faced up to the truth. If we accept the radical homosexual agenda, be it in the military or in marriage or in other areas of our lives, we are utterly destroying the concept of family.
Alan Keyes
It’s impossible to live a life totally free of feelings. God created all of us to be emotional creatures, and feelings are a big part of our lives.
Joyce Meyer
I find that predicting the course of our lives is like predicting the weather. You might be able to predict your future in the short term, but the longer you look ahead, the less likely you are to be correct.
Leonard Mlodinow
It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.
Tony Robbins
The biggest need that women have is more time. We all want more time in our lives. More time in the morning to get ready. More time in the evening to spend time with our families. All of these things – more time to move up that career path. It’s about time.
Renee Ellmers
I consider myself a spiritual atheist. I certainly believe there are forces bigger than ourselves, and that we should be searching, individually, for meaning in our lives. But I don’t believe there’s a supreme being, an intelligence that created everything.
Alan Lightman
The scriptures teach us the ways of the Lord. They answer questions about how to live today. They bring a light and a spirit into our lives that we can get in no other way.
Margaret D. Nadauld
My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose – somehow we win out.
Ronald Reagan
Nothing changes more constantly than the past; for the past that influences our lives does not consist of what actually happened, but of what men believe happened.
Gerald W. Johnson
There's nothing in your life or in our collective probl

There’s nothing in your life or in our collective problems that does not require our ability to put our attention where we care about. At the end of our lives, all we have is our attention and our time.
Tristan Harris
Fire has impacted every part of our lives – without fire, there would be no shopping, right? – that’s how the Internet will intrude on our lives, particularly our kids’ lives.
Jay Chiat
We all fantasize about a relationship we’d like to do over or something we’d like to change about our past. I think there are a lot more opportunities for second chances in our lives than we think.
Jean Smart
I have great hopes that we shall love each other all our lives as much as if we had never married at all.
Lord Byron
We breathe, we think, we conceive of our lives as narratives.
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
Facebook has woven itself into the fabric of our lives and the foundation of the Internet. I think everything will be redefined because people are using their real identities on the Internet.
Ruchi Sanghvi
My mother always taught us that any accomplishment my sisters or I achieve is a ‘feather in all our caps.’ Kathy, Kim, and I are always proud of each other. We feel that each of our lives is a reflection on all of us. We all want the best for each other.
Kyle Richards
The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.
Tony Robbins
When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
The gospel of Jesus Christ encompasses much more than avoiding, overcoming, and being cleansed from sin and the bad influences in our lives; it also essentially entails doing good, being good, and becoming better. Repenting of our sins and seeking forgiveness are spiritually necessary, and we must always do so.
David A. Bednar
We don’t experience our lives as plots. If I asked you to tell me what your last week was like, you’re not really gonna give me plot. You’re gonna give me sort of linked narrative. And I wanted to see how do we bring that into fiction without losing the reader.
Teju Cole
Only 20 percent of our longevity is genetically determined. The rest is what we do, how we live our lives and increasingly the molecules that we take. It’s not the loss of our DNA that causes aging, it’s the problems in reading the information, the epigenetic noise.
David Andrew Sinclair
My fiction is almost always inspired by a character’s need or desire to rise above him- or herself. No one is perfect and some of us have much adversity in our lives; it is those people who struggle to rise above their nature or background that I find the most interesting and heroic.
Robert Crais
Ideas matter. The world matters. Our lives matter, and the choices we make as we navigate our lives perhaps matter most of all.
Lauren Myracle
We assume that everything’s becoming more efficient, and in an immediate sense that’s true; our lives are better in many ways. But that improvement has been gained through a massively inefficient use of natural resources.
Paul Hawken
We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depended on it. Because they do.
Sylvia Earle
We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday, and a lot of my friends’ birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.
Beyonce Knowles
We almost always have choices, and the better the choice, the more we will be in control of our lives.
William Glasser
We all wake up in the morning wanting to live our lives the way we know we should. But we usually don’t, in small ways. That’s what makes a character like Batman so fascinating. He plays out our conflicts on a much larger scale.
Christopher Nolan
Our brains have this habit of quilting dreams from the fabrics of our lives. As a filmmaker, I get to do it for a living.
Peter Landesman
I think social media has taken over for our generation. It’s a big part of our lives, and it’s kind of sad.
Kendall Jenner
Life is rife with frustrations, jealousies and, on occasion, an overwhelming sense of its injustices, but it’s a big mistake to let such negative sentiments rule our lives and dictate choices.
Mariella Frostrup
I’m the first to admit that we were totally dependent on a particular place and time… for us, seeing Minor Threat at the CBGB hardcore matinee was just as necessary a force in our lives as the Treacherous Three at Club Negril or the Funky Four + One More at the Rock Lounge.
Mike D
All of us want to have meaning in our lives and want to feel like we’re doing something that makes a difference. I believe we’re doing that in the Justice Department.
John Ashcroft
But human beings fall easily into despair, and from the very beginning we invented stories that enabled us to place our lives in a larger setting, that revealed an underlying pattern, and gave us a sense that, against all the depressing and chaotic evidence to the contrary, life had meaning and value.
Karen Armstrong
Our Father’s commitment to us, His children, is unwavering. Indeed He softens the winters of our lives, but He also brightens our summers.
Thomas S. Monson
There’s so many different types of illusions; our lives are an illusion in a sense.
Jihae
Human nature must be changed if we are ever to have an end to war or to correct the wrong situations that make our lives uneasy and our hearts sore. Now Christianity, the power of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit of God, is the only force that can change people for good.
Peter Marshall
The true basis of morality is utility; that is, the adaptation of our actions to the promotion of the general welfare and happiness; the endeavour so to rule our lives that we may serve and bless mankind.
Annie Besant
To me, the job of a playwright is to explore and bring to light our lives. You can’t hold back; you have to give in to this. Sometimes, you say things people don’t want to hear.
Ted Lange
Sometimes Christians live in a terror of universal obligation: AIDS over here, people to be saved over here, a crushing sense of low-level guilt every day of our lives. Question to ask: Where has God put me right now? I need to say no to a whole bunch of other things because if I don’t say no I can’t say yes to others.
Kevin DeYoung
The stories in 'Parenthood' are so much the stories of

The stories in ‘Parenthood’ are so much the stories of our lives. And the people who have worked on the show feel very connected to these characters.
Jason Katims
The scripture is God’s plan on how we are to live our lives here and what we are to do to have eternal life.
Deborah Norville
My work on what is called ‘deep reading’ explores the range of linguistic, cognitive, and affective processes that underlie not only the emergence of creative thought when we read but also the development and strengthening of capacities like empathy and critical analysis that we can apply to the rest of our lives.
Maryanne Wolf
We’re all just a bundle of habits shaped by our memories. And to the extent that we control our lives, we do so by gradually altering those habits, which is to say the networks of our memory. No lasting joke, or invention, or insight, or work of art was ever produced by an external memory. Not yet, at least.
Joshua Foer
I think life without Coronation Street would be unthinkable. It’s part of all our lives.
Michael Parkinson
We used to listen to all the marvelous operas on records. Music was a very important part of our lives.
Charlotte Rae
In our development, as we grow throughout our lives, the structure of our beliefs becomes very complicated, and we make it even more complicated because we make the assumption that what we believe is the absolute truth.
Don Miguel Ruiz
After doing this, going away, trying other things and working on other shows, this character, and working within Days of Our Lives, has been one of the most enjoyable experiences in my career.
Matthew Ashford
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
Annie Dillard
An abiding preoccupation for me is how much of our lives are invisible and unknown by other people, like the Chekhov story ‘The Lady With the Little Dog.’
Claire Messud
We’ve been taught to believe that actions speak louder than words. But I think words speak pretty loud all of our lives; we carry these words in our head.
Marlo Thomas
I was suffering from a peculiar and persistent sense that I was being pursued, and also the conviction that under the political order of the times, our lives had no meaning.
Naguib Mahfouz
By bringing nature into our lives, we invite humility.
Richard Louv
From racial profiling and being pulled over just for ‘driving while black’ to this new phenomenon of killing unarmed people out of some preconceived idea of fear, our lives and our children’s lives are not being valued.
Al Sharpton
I love things on the decline because that’s really the natural progression of our lives. We’re born, we’re feisty for the first couple of years, and then the inevitable decline begins.
Gary Shteyngart
I’m not one of those New Age types that believe ‘it’s all meant to be’ and that our lives have been scripted by an invisible hand.
Robin S. Sharma
Once we are destined to live out our lives in the prison of our mind, our duty is to furnish it well.
Peter Ustinov
What’s fascinated me from the time I was a little kid was the way we construct our lives through stories.
Henry Louis Gates
There are moments in our lives that are more difficult than others. And I can look at each song and remember where I was during those times – from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows.
Guy Sebastian
What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal – that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.
Barack Obama
Our Generation has had no Great war, no Great Depression. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives.
Chuck Palahniuk
Our lives are politically wound.
Sarah Hall
Astronauts are very professional and when they’re preparing for launch, they prepare for it as the most serious endeavor of our lives.
Ellen Ochoa
Conscience is the mirror of our souls, which represents the errors of our lives in their full shape.
George Bancroft
I was bullied as a boy – lots of kids are, but hopefully most of us get on with our lives and grow up.
Anthony Hopkins
Most great plays of the past lose their grip on immediacy; on application to our lives right now.
Mike Nichols
I don’t think many people have a very good understanding of leisure and the importance it plays in our lives.
Jack Nicholson
In our lives in a lot of ways it’s all about fake. You’ve got people wanting things for fake reasons.
Billy Corgan
The world’s pretty big. I have to see everything, do everything, eat everything. You’ll never be as young as you are right now, so while your legs still work, while you still have the breath in your lungs, go. At the end of our lives, we only regret the things we didn’t do.
Philip Rosenthal
Complete objectivity is not an option. We are all subjective about the way we respond to ‘what is,’ whether it’s the people we encounter, the circumstances in our lives, or ourselves. What we can do is reduce our subjectivity – what I call ‘I see, therefore it is.’
Elizabeth Thornton
We all have thoughts and feelings that we believe are fundamental to our lives but that are better left unspoken.

With my boyfriend, we can make sexist jokes to each oth

With my boyfriend, we can make sexist jokes to each other because we know it’s absolutely not true. If I get home from a long day and he says: ‘Go on, get in the kitchen,’ it’s funny because we know it’s not our lives.

The one kind of person I have a lot of trouble understanding is the kind of person that says the existence of God or religion doesn’t matter, it’s not an important decision. I think it’s vitally important; it’s what all our lives are based on.

Charlie Kaufman
There is nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for Hope, and there is nothing he wouldn’t do for me… We spend our lives doing nothing for each other.
Bing Crosby
Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright’s pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
