The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye.

Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should value life more.

A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.

I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Learning lessons is a little like reaching maturity. You’re not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you’re at peace with yourself. Learning life’s lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be.
