Way back in the day, I used to post lyrics and other catchy things. However, those old posts were very short and didn’t help me with SEO. So, I quit doing them. The thing is though, I still very much enjoy a good quote. I think I might have had a quote phase during my junior/senior years of high school, so it’s not at that height right now. Nonetheless, dealing with life not going as planned has forced me to look for comfort in an assortment of places. So, I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes about life and why I picked them.
Quotes About Life
Without further ado, I give my favorite quotes about life.
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” ~ Robert Frost
I like this one because it does seem to adequately describe what any living adult can attest to. No matter how hard life gets, things keep going on. Granted, I/we may not always be participating in those things, but the earth keeps rotating and time keeps passing.
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” ~ Allen Saunders
I think this kind of goes along with what I was just saying with the other quote. I/we can choose to sit and be unhappy or simply look forward to a future event (and not living in the moment), but life still goes on. We can either use our time wisely by appreciating what is happening right now or waste it by concentrating on other things. This leads me to my next quote…
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ~ Oscar Wilde
Speaking of not wasting our time, it seems like life has really sped up for me in recent years. I keep telling myself I’ll follow up on certain things or find a way to do something, the next thing I know it’s 2 months later.
“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” ~ John Burroughs
Lastly, I want to touch on regrets/decision on this little post on quotes about life.
Back when I was in high school, I made the typical teenage girl “mistakes”. However, I decided early on that I wasn’t going to live my life with regrets. I am a firm believer that every decision or event in my life has helped to form the person I am today. For the most part, I’m content with the person I’ve become. So, I could never hate something/someone that’s helped me get here. Although, I will admit that there are things I wish I had done. I guess that’s more of a “You live, you learn” sort of thing though.
