 “Proper planning prevents poor performance.”
 Life is just a chance to grow a soul.
 And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
 Life on the planet is born of woman.
 Life is rather like a tin of sardines - we're all of us looking for the key.
 All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towardsthat they turn when they feel too worn out.

Ethics cannot be based upon our obligations toward [people], but they are completeand natural only when we feel this Reverence for Life and the desire to havecompassion for and to help all creatures insofar as it is in our power. I think that thisethic will become more and more recognized because of its great naturalness andbecause it is the foundation of a true humanism toward which we must strive if ourculture is to become truly ethical.
 Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamentalprinciple of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, andenhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.
Civilization and Ethics, 1949
 Reverence for Life affords me my fundamental principle of morality, namely, thatgood consists in maintaining, assisting, and enhancing life and that to destroy, harm,or to hinder life is evil. Affirmation of the world -- that is affirmation of the will to live,which appears in phenomenal forms all around me -- is only possible for me in that Igive myself out for other life.
 Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a badperson can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is itfor.
 Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise.
 Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Wherepeople fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
 People living deeply have no fear of death.
 The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.
 Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; andthis interdependence produces the highest form of living.
 The most decisive actions of our life ... are most often unconsidered actions.
 Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.
 How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
 Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
 Wars and elections are both too big and too small to matter in the long run. The dailywork - that goes on, it adds up.
