Nor love thy life, nor hate; but what thou liv'st
  Live well; how long or short permit to heav'n.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. XI, l. 553)

Life's a tough proposition, and the first hundred years are the hardest.
      - Wilson Mizner

Life in itself is neither good nor evil, it is the scene of good or evil, as you make it.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Were I to live my life over again, I should live it just as I have done. I neither complain of the past, nor do I fear the future.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne,
        Essays On Repentance (bk. III, ch. II)

Life is but jest:
  A dream, a doom;
    A gleam, a gloom--
      And then--good rest!
        Life is but play;
          A throb, a tear:
            A sob, a sneer;
              And then--good day.
                [Fr., La vie est vaine:
                  Un peu d'amour,
                    Un peu de haine--
                      Et puis-bonjour!
                        La vie est breve:
                          Un peu d'espoir,
                            Un peu de reve--
                              Et puis--bon soir!]
      - Leon Louis Moreau Constant Corneille van Montenaeken,
        Peu de Chose et Presque Trop (Nought and too Much)

'Tis not the whole of life to live;
  Nor all of death to die.
      - James Montgomery,
        The Issues of Life and Death

The grand question of life is, Is my name written in heaven?
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

They may rail at this life--from the hour I began it,
  I've found it a life full of kindness and bliss;
    And, until they can show me some happier planet,
      More social and bright, I'll content me with this.
      - Thomas Moore

The longer one lives the more he learns.
      - Thomas Moore, Dream of Hindoostan

A narrow isthmus 'twixt two boundless seas,
  The past, the future, two eternities.
      - Thomas Moore, Lalla Rookh--Veiled Prophet

Vain were the man, and false as vain,
  Who said, were he ordained to run
    His long career of life again
      He would do all that he had done.
      - Thomas Moore, My Birthday

Life is a waste of wearisome hours,
  Which seldom the rose of enjoyment adorns,
    And the heart that is soonest awake to the flowers,
      Is always the first to be touch'd by the thorns.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Oh! Think not My Spirits are always as Light

Life is a foreign language: all men mispronounce it.
      - Christopher Darlington Morley

The great business of life is to be, to do, to do without, and to depart.

Life is act, and not to do is death.
      - Sir Lewis Morris

Nor on one string are all life's jewels strung.

Our days begin with trouble here, our life is but a span,
  And cruel death is always near, so frail a thing is man.

If we have our own why of life, we shall get along with almost any how.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Man, a hybrid of plant and ghost.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Life is easier than you'd think; all that is necessary is to accept the impossible, do without the indispensable, and bear the intolerable.
      - Kathleen Norris (nee Kathleen Thompson and wife of C.G. Norris)
