      - Thomas Carlyle

Think of "living"! Thy life, wert thou the "pitifullest of all the sons of earth," is no idle dream, but a solemn reality. It is thy own; it is all thou hast to front eternity with. Work, then, even as He has done, and does, "like a star, unhasting, yet unresting.
      - Thomas Carlyle

        Essays--Memoirs on the Life of Scott

One life;--a little gleam of Time between two Eternities.
      - Thomas Carlyle,
        Heroes and Hero Worship--The Hero as a Man of Letters

How many lives we live in one,
  And how much less than one, in all.
      - Alice Cary, Life's Mysteries

One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world was better for this.

        Don Quixote

He who lives well is the best preacher.

Life, whether in this world or any other, is the sum of our attainment, our experience, our character. The conditions are secondary. In what other world shall we be more surely than we are here?
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

However, while I crawl upon this planet I think myself obliged to do what good I can in my narrow domestic sphere, to all my fellow-creatures, and to wish them all the good I cannot do.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope,
        in a letter to the Bishop of Waterford

When I reflect upon what I have seen, what I have heard, what I have done, I can hardly persuade myself that all that frivolous hurry and bustle and pleasure of the world had any reality; and I look on what has passed as one of those wild dreams which opium occasions, and I by no means wish to repeat the nauseous dose for the sake of the fugitive illusion.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

Life itself is the proper binge.

        Philippicoe (XIV, 12)
