Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
      - John Lennon

A few years hence and he will be beneath the sod; but those cliffs will stand, as now, facing the ocean, incessantly lashed by its waves, yet unshaken, immovable; and other eyes will gaze on them for their brief day of life, and then they, too, will close.
      - Canon Henry P. Liddon

What shall we call this undetermin'd state,
  This narrow isthmus 'twixt two boundless oceans,
    That whence we came, and that to which we tend?
      - George Lillo, Arden of Feversham
         (act III, sc. 2)

Life is real, life is earnest,
  And the grave is not its goal;
    Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
      Was not spoken of the soul.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Life is the gift of God, and is divine.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
  Life is but an empty dream!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        A Psalm of Life (st. 1)

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
  And out hearts, though stout and brave,
    Still, like muffled drums, are beating
      Funeral marches to the grave.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        A Psalm of Life (st. 4)

This life of ours is a wild aeolian harp of many a joyous strain,
  But under them al there runs a loud perpetual wail, as of souls in pain.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        Christus--The Golden Legend
         (pt. IV, st. 2)

Love is sunshine, hate is shadow,
  Life is checkered shade and sunshine.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hiawatha
         (pt. X, Hiawatha's Wooing, l. 265)

Life hath quicksands, Life hath snares!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Maidenhood
         (st. 9)

Thus at the flaming forge of life
  Our fortunes must be wrought;
    Thus on its sounding anvil shaped
      Each burning deed and thought!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        The Village Blacksmith (st. 8)

Live and think.
      - Samuel Lover, Father Roach

Life is constantly weighing us in very sensitive scales, and telling every one of us precisely what his real weight is to the last grain of dust.
      - James Russell Lowell

Truly there is a tide in the affairs of men; but there is no gulf-stream setting forever in one direction.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        Among My Books--First Series--New England Two Centuries Ago

Our life must once have end; in vain we fly
  From following Fate: e'en now, e'en now, we die.
      - Lucretius (Titus Lucretius Carus),
        De Rerum Natura (3, 1093),
        (Creech translation)

When life leaps in the veins, when it beats in the heart,
  When it thrills as it fills every animate part,
    Where lurks it? how works it? . . . we scarcely detect it.
      - Lord Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton ("Owen Meredith"),
        Lucile (pt. II, canto I, st. 5)

Life hath set
  No landmarks before us.
      - Lord Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton ("Owen Meredith"),
        Lucile (pt. II, canto V, st. 14)

At worst, a house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life unlived.
      - Rose Macaulay

Life and religion are one, or neither is anything.
      - George MacDonald

Let the current of your being set towards God, then your life will be filled and calmed by one master-passion which unites and stills the soul.

Whilst life remains it is well.

We are always beginning to live, but are never living.

Remember that man's life lies all within this present; as for the rest, the past is gone, the future yet unseen.
