20 Great Quotes About Life

Does it ever happen that you ask questions such as What am I here for or where am I going, What does my future look like? Looking for meanings of life is something normal that each and every individual does.

Is life all about Colours, music, friendship, happiness, daily work or love? Or is it more a scientific process which is made of only traveling molecules such as stated by H. von Foerster:

There is not, external to us, hot or cold, but only different velocities of molecules; there aren’t sounds, callings, harmonies, but just variations in the pressure of the air; there aren’t colours, or light, just electro-magnetic waves.

Many great thinkers have failed in the quest to find out the meaning of Life. The latter has been the most elusive mystery since ever and it is said that whoever tells you that s/he has an answer is either joking or mad.

However hard it might be to really find an exact answer for the meaning of life, it can be said that life is determined and lived by the kind of questions we tend to ask ourselves as we grow up every day. These questions will have their own set of answers which may contain emotion, anger, developing positive or negatitive attitudes which in return trigger us to take action or remain passive, among many others.

But, to lead a life one needs also to have recourse to inspirations. How do we find these inspirations? With whom do we talk? What do we read? How do we control our anger? How do we manage our level of daily stress? All these questions naturally lead us to find answers, and hence allow self-development which helps shapes life in its integrity.
Let’s remember one thing also. If we adopt a defeatist attitude towards life, we will be defeated. If we ask questions which lead to negativity, we will test to approach life negativity.

But if we adopt the words of Arthur Rubinstein

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.

there is a greater chance that optimism, happiness, joy will be the main characteristics no matter how hard we might get hit throughout our path!
